    Changing CSS variables in a property

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to change the colors of my scheme using a property. I have the property defined (which works), but how can I call this property in the CSS file? Everything I tried didn't work. Or is there any other way to achieve this?

    Hello @tungdo,

    it is not possible to reference C# data in a css file.

    What you can do is to use your Umbraco doc type property to specify a class name which then is added to an html element in your view file.

    So when your css files looks like this:

    .colorSchemeLight {
        color: black;
        background-color: white;
    .colorSchemeDark {
        color: white;
        background-color: black;

    and your doc type property of type string is called myCssClassNameProperty, you can reference this in your .cshtml like

    <div class="@Model.myCssClassNameProperty">

    If you use a Radio button list as your property editor, then you can predefine the available values so only valid class names can be chosen.

    Hope this helps!
