css change How to override Bootstrap's Panel heading background color?



bootstrap panel color generator (9)

You can create a custom class for your panel heading. Using this css class you can style the panel heading. I have a simple Fiddle for this.

HTML:

<div class="panel panel-default">
   <div class="panel-heading panel-heading-custom">
       <h3 class="panel-title">Panel title</h3>
   </div>
   <div class="panel-body">
       Panel content
   </div>
</div>

CSS:

.panel-default > .panel-heading-custom {
background: #ff0000; color: #fff; }

I'm using a Panel from Bootstrap however for the heading I want to use my own background color for the heading. When I don't put panel-heading class for the div, the layout gets screwed. So I thought I should keep panel-heading but then find a way to override the background color. So I decided to create a custom css class and use background-color and then add it to the div with panel-heading. But this didn't make any effect.

Any idea how to override the heading color of the panel?

Code:

<div class="panel panel-default">
  <div class="panel-heading custom_class" >
  </div>
</div>

Answer #1

This should work:

.panel > .panel-heading {
    background-image: none;
    background-color: red;
    color: white;

}

Answer #2

am assuming custom_class to be your class to override heading color of the panel. just add !important to it or add inline styles or a id and add styles as they will have more specificity over class added styles.

  • with !important

    .custom_class{ background-color: red !important; }

  • with !important

  • with ID :

    #custom_id{ background-color: red; }

-with inline styles :

<div id="custom_id" class="panel panel-default">
      <div class="panel-heading custom_class" style="background-color:red">
      </div>
    </div>

Answer #3

Bootstrap sometimes uses contextual class constructs. Those are what you should target to change styling.

You don't need to create your own custom class as suggested in the answer from Kiran Varti.

So you only need:

CSS:

.panel-default > .panel-heading {
  background: #black;
}

HTML:

<div class="panel panel-default">

Explanation here. Also see contextual class section here.

To match navbar-inverse use #222. Panel-inverse was requested in V3, but rejected due to larger priorities.

You can change the foreground color in that heading override or you can do it separately for panel titles. Depends what you are trying to achieve.

.panel-title {
  color: white;
}

Answer #4

You can simply add an id attribute to the panel. Like this

<div class="panel-heading" id="mypanelId">Hello world </div>

Then in your custom CSS file:

#mypanelId{
    background-image: none;
    background: rgba(22, 20, 100, 0.8);
    color: white;
     }

Answer #5

How about creating your own Custom Panel class? That way you won't have to worry about overriding Bootstrap.

HTML

<div class="panel panel-custom-horrible-red">
   <div class="panel-heading">
      <h3 class="panel-title">Panel title</h3>
   </div>
   <div class="panel-body">
      Panel content
    </div>
</div>

CSS

.panel-custom-horrible-red {
    border-color: #ff0000;
}
.panel-custom-horrible-red > .panel-heading {
    background: #ff0000; 
    color: #ffffff;
    border-color: #ff0000;
}

Answer #6
.panel-default >.panel-heading
{
    background: #ffffff;
}

This is what worked for me to change the color to white.


Answer #7

Just check the bootstrap. CSS and search for the class panel-heading and copy the default code.

Copy the default CSS to your personal CSS but vive it a diference classname like my-panel-header for example.

Edit the css Code from the new clones class created.


Answer #8

Another way to change the color is remove the default class and replace , in the panel using the classes of bootstrap.

example:

<div class="panel panel-danger">
  <div class="panel-heading">
  </div>
</div>
