LESS - Extending Nested Selectors


Advertisements

Description

Nested selectors are matched using the extend selector.

Example

The following example demonstrates the use of extending nested selectors in the LESS file −

extend_syntax.htm

<!doctype html>
   <head>
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "style.css" type = "text/css" />
   </head>

   <body>
      <div class = "style">
         <h3>Hello!!!!!</h3>
      </div>
      <p class = "img">Welcome to TutorialsPoint</p>
   </body>
</html>

Next, create the style.less file.

style.less

.style {
   h3 {
      color: #BF70A5;
      font-size: 30px;
   }
}
.img:extend(.style h3){}

You can compile the style.less file to style.css by using the following command −

lessc style.less style.css

Execute the above command; it will create the style.css file automatically with the following code −

style.css

.style h3,
.img {
   color: #BF70A5;
   font-size: 30px;
}

Output

Follow these steps to see how the above code works −

  • Save the above html code in the extend_syntax.htm file.

  • Open this HTML file in a browser, the following output will get displayed.
