There is a possibility to make changes in the look and feel of a message box or a tooltip. You can either create a new CSS class or use a CSS class that DHTMLX library provides.

Using new CSS classes#

To use a new CSS class you need to take the following steps:

  • add a new CSS class(es) with desired settings in the <style> section of your HTML page or in your file with styles (don't forget to include your file on the page in this case)
<style>    .my_first_class {        /*some styles*/    }        .my_second_class {        /*some styles*/    }</style>
  • specify the name of the created CSS class (or names of classes separated by spaces) as the value of the css property in the message box (alert, confirm), tooltip configuration:
dhx.message({    css:"my_first_class my_second_class"});

For example:

<style>  .custom-class .dhx_message__text {    font-size: 16px;  }  .custom-class .dhx_message__icon {    color: red;  }</style>
dhx.message({  text: "Here is dhtmlxMessage",  icon: "dxi dxi-close",  css: "custom-class"});

Using default CSS classes#

The DHTMLX library provides a set of own CSS classes that you can apply to change the appearance either of a message box or a tooltip.

dhx.message({    css:"dhx_widget--bg_gray"});
