jQWidgets jqxDropDownButton theme Property

  • Last Updated : 18 Jan, 2022

jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxDropDownButton is used to illustrate a jQuery widget that contains a number of selectable as well as expandable items displayed in the dropdown button.

The theme property is used to set or return the theme of the displayed dropdown button. It accepts string type value and the default value is empty (‘ ‘). In order to use this property, we need to incorporate the theme stylesheet i.e. ( jqx.energyblue.css ) into the header section. The theme file is included after the ‘jqx.base.css’ file.

The pair of CSS files are used by jQWidgets, namely, jqx.base.css and jqx.[theme name].css. The base stylesheet is used to generate the styles that relate to the layout of the widget such as border-width, padding, margin, position. The widget’s colors and backgrounds can be applied by using the second CSS file.


  • It is used to set the theme property.
$('Selector').jqxDropDownButton({ theme: String });
  • It is used to get the theme property.
var theme = $('Selector').jqxDropDownButton('theme');
