Styling Organogram

You can customize any element of Webix Organogram. All you need to do is to redefine the needed attributes of the related CSS class in the <style> block of your page. The untouched attributes will take default values.

        background-color: #2196f3;

In the above example we redefined only the background color. All the other attributes defined in the '.webix_organogram' class took the default values.

CSS classes and the related elements

  • .webix_organogram - CSS rule for container of the organizational chart
  • .webix_organogram_item - CSS rule for all chart items
  • .webix_organogram_level_1 - CSS rule for the items of the first level
  • .webix_organogram_level_2 - CSS rule of the items of the second level
  • ...
  • .webix_organogram_level_[n] - CSS rule for the items of the N level
  • .webix_organogram_list - CSS rule for list block
  • .webix_organogram_list_item - CSS rule for items inside list block
  • .webix_selected - CSS rule for the items in selected state

Custom styling

You can also redefine the default styles or apply your own CSS rules for chart items.

Use the $css property in item data to specify item style in one of the two ways:

  1. create a new CSS rule in <style> block and apply it to the necessary items
  2. specify CSS style directly in the item definition

To illustrate the described techniques, we will define the .item_top CSS rule and apply it to the item of the 1st level. For the item of the second level we'll set specific CSS properties directly in the data set.

Finally, we'll redefine the .webix_selected rule to change background color of selected items.

    // "top" ccs rule definition
        background-color: #ffe0b2;
        border-color: #ffcc80;
    // the style for selected item 
        background-color: #2196f3 !important;
        border-color: #2196f3 !important;
orgChart = new webix.ui({
        {id:"root", value:"Board of Directors", $css: "item_top",  data:[
            {id:"1", value:"Managing Director", 
              $css:{background: "#ffe0b2", "border-color": "#ffcc80"}, data:[
                {id:"1.1", value:"Base Manager"},
                { id:"1.2", value:"Business Development Manager"}
