The Palette Switch Component - Neve Header / Footer Builder

📝Note: This component is part of the Neve Header / Footer Builder.

The Palette Switch component adds a toggle or an icon to the header area that can be used to switch the website color scheme from light to dark or the other way around. Even if the names are light and dark, both color palettes controlled by this option can be fully customized with the desired colors.

The General panel also brings in the following options:

    • At the end of the row with icons, you will find another button that works as a slider. Once you click on it, it will open an editor area that allows you to add custom SVG code.

📝 Note: The icon will be visible only after you click on the Save button.

  • Icon Size - adjust the size of the icon to fit your header. It can also be set differently for Desktop | Tablet | Mobile.
  • Label - insert a suggestive label for the switcher.
  • Automatically adjust color scheme - the color scheme will be adjusted based on the user device preferences.

In the Layout tab, you also have access to advanced positioning options like:

  • Padding and Margin - available in PX, EM, REM, and %, with a link button that helps establish the same dimension for all the directions  ( Desktop | Tablet | Mobile ).
