I would like to change the background color of my web app from white to a light blue (#f4f7fc).

I created a theme awhile back and still have the json file. So I uploaded that to the theme tool and changed the background and downloaded the new theme. I replaced the theme .css file in my application but there was no change.

I can see the new color under the .k-body and a few other classes. But in the developer tools it seems that the background color on the <body> element is set to var(--bs-body-bg). Is this a Bootstrap variable? How can I override this?

Hi David,

It looks like the --bs-body-bg bootstrap class overrides the body color you've set.

I see two possibilities here:

  • Make the body color style !important to prevent the override from the bootstrap class. For example:
    .k-body {
        color: #424242;
        background-color: #f4f7fc !important;
    }
  • Inspect the elements (using browser DevTools) and edit directly the current variable that takes care of the background color.

Additionally, check out this article for more helpful information on such scenarios with bootstrap - Customize theme.

I hope the above helps. I would be glad to keep me updated on the situation.

Thank you.
