Styling components in the Microsoft Graph Toolkit

Use CSS custom properties to modify the component styles.

Each component documents a set of CSS custom properties that you can use to change the look and feel of certain elements. For example:

mgt-person {
  --avatar-size: 34px;

You can't style internal elements of a component unless you provide a CSS custom property. The component child elements are hosted in a shadow dom.

For more flexibility, consider using custom templates.

Disable the shadow dom (experimental)

You can disable the shadow dom, and directly style internal elements using normal browser stylesheets, by setting the static property useShadowDom of the MgtBaseComponent class to false before using any MGT tags.

<script type="module">
  import { MgtBaseComponent } from './dist/es6/components/baseComponent.js';
   MgtBaseComponent.useShadowRoot = false;

<script type="module" src="./dist/es6/components/mgt-tasks/mgt-tasks.js"></script>
