Editor Appearance Variants

DevExtreme Editors include the following appearance customization properties:

  • stylingMode: "filled" | "outlined" | "underlined"
    Specifies the style used for text fields.

  • labelMode: "static" | "floating" | "hidden" | "outside"
    Specifies label display mode.

To specify styles globally (as an alternative to stylingMode), set the editorStylingMode property instead (editorStylingMode applies the same style to all editors on the page).

In this demo, you can use the "Styling Mode/Label Mode" drop down box (in the Options section) to modify styling and label modes.
