classFuncs: Add/remove CSS class

Description Usage Arguments Note See Also Examples

Description

Add or remove a CSS class from an HTML element.

addClass adds a CSS class, removeClass removes a CSS class, toggleClass adds the class if it is not set and removes the class if it is already set.

addCssClass, removeCssClass, and toggleCssClass are synonyms that may be safer to use if you're working with S4 classes (since they don't mask any existing S4 functions).

If condition is given to toggleClass, that condition will be used to determine if to add or remove the class. The class will be added if the condition evaluates to TRUE and removed otherwise. If you find yourself writing code such as if (test()) addClass(id, cl) else removeClass(id, cl) then you can use toggleClass instead: toggleClass(id, cl, test()).

CSS is a simple way to describe how elements on a web page should be displayed (position, colour, size, etc.). You can learn the basics at W3Schools.

addClass(id = NULL, class = NULL, selector = NULL, asis = FALSE)

addCssClass(id = NULL, class = NULL, selector = NULL, asis = FALSE)

removeClass(id = NULL, class = NULL, selector = NULL, asis = FALSE)

removeCssClass(id = NULL, class = NULL, selector = NULL, asis = FALSE)

  id = NULL,
  class = NULL,

)

  asis = FALSE
)

Arguments

id

The id of the element/Shiny tag

class

The CSS class to add/remove

selector

JQuery selector of the elements to target. Ignored if the id argument is given. For example, to add a certain class to all inputs with class x, use selector = "input.x"

asis

If TRUE, use the ID as-is even when inside a module (instead of adding the namespace prefix to the ID).

condition

An optional argument to toggleClass, see 'Details' below.

Note

If you use S4 classes, you should be aware of the fact that both S4 and shinyjs use the removeClass() function. This means that when using S4, it is recommended to use removeCssClass() from shinyjs, and to use methods::removeClass() for S4 object.

shinyjs must be initialized with a call to useShinyjs() in the app's ui.
