 CSS Overrides Properties

CSS override definitions

Define CSS classes to override defined CSS styles. This will allow you to have special classes on controls when the HTML is saved to PDF. A typical use case for this feature is to turn off the border on controls when they are printed. TIP: Use the .{style} placeholder in selector names to make your definition work with any component style. For example, to turn off the border on textboxes: {style}Edit {border: none;}

Suppress borders on controls

Specify if the border that is normally displayed around edit controls should be suppressed.
