UDStyle component for Universal Dashboard

You can apply styles to individual components within Universal Dashboard by using the UDStyle component. This component will need to be added to your dashboard and is part of the core components included with PowerShell Universal.

Applying a Style

To apply a style to a component or a set of components, you call the New-UDStyle cmdlet, specify a CSS style and then include the components you wish to style within the -Content script block.

New-UDStyle -Style '
    padding: 32px;
    background-color: hotpink;
    font-size: 24px;
    border-radius: 4px;
    &:hover {
      color: white;
    .card {
        background-color: green !important;   
    }' -Content {
        New-UDCard -Title 'Test' -Content {

Overriding Built in Styles

Each Material UI component has a set of built in classes that you can override using New-UDStyle. To determine the class names that you need to override, you can view the API documentation for the component you are trying to modify on the Material UI site. For example, here is a listing of the Alert component's CSS class names.

When using a success alert, you will have the .MuiAlert-standardSuccess class applied to your component. You can override this default style like this.

New-UDStyle -Style '.MuiAlert-standardSuccess { background-color: red !important;  }  ' -Content {
    New-UDAlert -Text "Hello"

The resulting alert will be red instead of the default green.
