Dynamic Dashboard Color Styles - how to reset?

Continuing the discussion from Dynamic style change between Light and Dark:

I used this CSS example to change the colours in my dashboard with an ui-template node. However:

  • only the first group of my dashboard is changing color, all other stay with the Theme color
  • how to revert the colours? Simply applying the theme again seems not to work. Do I need to restart NR for this?

Disable or delete the template you used to make the changes in the first place.

Ok, but why is only the first tab affected and all the others stay with the Theme colors?

Not sure what you are referring too... you might want to supply your relevant details in this topic

May depend on template type assigned... head or widget.


And whether the template contents affect everything or just specific items

You are right! What I overlooked was the fact that you cannot attach the ui-template node to a Tab but only to a Widget within a Tab! it affects this Tab only and not the others.
Apparently there is no dynamic control possible for the complete dashboard.

Oh, there is... ui_template set to head and the right commands can determine almost everything across the dashboard.

@hotNipi is the expert and this is one of his creations.... I can't recall the topic, but here are two templates. One that does everything... good for experimenting and learning. And another I use to simply set rounded corners in all my tabs and cards
