There is a customizable settings.json file for the Atlas UI that can be found in the theme folder of your Mendix project.

This how-to will teach you how to do the following:

  • Change Atlas UI to Old Mendix UI Framework
  • Extend design properties applied in Studio

2 Extending Design Properties Applied in Studio

Properties in the Design section of Studio allow users to change the position and styling of widgets on a page. Atlas UI contains a design properties file that can be extended with your own custom design properties.

You can find the design properties in the theme folder > settings.json file of the Mendix project.

The example below shows the design properties of a "Button".

  • "name" – the name of the design property
  • "type" – the type of the design property (for example, Dropdown or Toggle)
  • "description" – a brief explanation of the design property
  • "options" – the array of options that shows the name and CSS class specified in the Sass files for Atlas UI

These design properties are used in the Design section of Studio.
