You can stylize any part of the interface of DHTMLX To Do List to meet your project requirements. For this, the library provides a wide range of CSS variables. Note, that To Do List includes two types of CSS variables:

  • variables related to To Do List style
  • variables related to the WX library style (font, icons, checkboxes, etc)

Default style


New versions of the To Do List can bring some changes for the variables and their names. So, please, do not forget to check the names after updating to the newest version and promptly modify them in your code to avoid problems with display of the component
