Suggest edit Updated on December 13, 2021
Applicable to Theme UI-Kit applications

Change the visual style of your application by modifying mixins. After you make a change, the reusable style patterns that you define in a mixin automatically cascade throughout all elements in the skin that use the mixin, which improves the visual coherence of your interface.

  1. In the navigation pane of Dev Studio, click Records.
  2. Expand the User Interface category, and then click Skin.
  3. Open the skin that you want to edit.
  4. On the Mixins tab, modify the mixin:
    Note: If your skin does not use inheritance, the Inherited tab is not available. For more information, see Creating skins.
