Styling Dat.GUI (Layer Example)

Hey all,

I am trying to research how to style a Dat.GUI toggle menu, particularly the one in the layers menu:

I can’t find much documentation about Dat.GUI styling. I want to use PNG images in place of the toggle buttons, checkbox toggles and drop down tab. is there a known method to do this?

dat.GUI is a separated control library and, IMHO, it’s out of the scope of this forum, but…
As any control, it contains many html-elements that you can style with css.

Using element inspector, you can see what style applied to what element:

Originally, style for checkboxes is:

.dg .c input[type="checkbox"] {
    margin-top: 9px;

I’ve simply added some lines right in the inspector and got those red corners on checkboxes.

Maybe this reply will give you some ideas with styling of that control.

Thank you for the info.

I apologize for posting out of scope. Delete if needed.

No need to delete it :slight_smile:

Hey Prisoner,

I know this is out of scope, but I have been working on this all day. I can do most of the styling, but there are some elements which will not style. It will work in the browser, but when I add the CSS to my index file the change does not take effect. Do you know why this might be?

For example:
.dg.main .close-button {
background-color: #0000;

It works in the Chrome inspector, but when I add it to my index and run it, nothing changes.

Would be cool to provide a live code example :slight_smile:

All three options work as expected:

  .dg.main .close-button {
    /*background-color: magenta;*/
    /*background-color: #f0f;*/
    background-color: rgb(255, 0, 255);

Shouldn’t it be #000 (three zeros instead of four)?
