How To

Both the web Inbox and badge widgets are added to your page through Shadow DOMs. This ensures there can be no conflict of styles/fonts etc with your main page. Styling is done through css variables, which are provided to the API as part of the config object styles property.

For example:

<style>
    :root
    {
        --optimove_inbox_z_index: 9000;
        --optimove_inbox_z_index_1: 2147483645;
        --optimove_inbox_header_background_color: #F10A69;
        --optimove_inbox_badge_right: 15px;
        --optimove_inbox_badge_bottom: 15px;
        --optimove_inbox_badge_width: 58px;
        --optimove_inbox_badge_height: 58px;
        --optimove_inbox_badge_background_color: #F10A69;
        --optimove_inbox_badge_border_radius: 50%;
        --optimove_inbox_badge_transform: scale(0.5);
        --optimove_inbox_badge_transform_origin: center;
    }
</style>

The sections below describe each variable and its effects.
