Referencing Won't Modify Detached Ruleset Scope


Advertisements

Description

By being referenced, the ruleset does not gain access to any new scopes.

Example

The following example demonstrates the use of giving references. However, this doesn't modify the detached ruleset scope in the LESS file −

passing_ruleset.htm

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

   <body>
      <div class = "cont">
         <h2>Welcome to TutorialsPoint</h2>
         <h3>The largest Tutorials Library on the web.</h3>
      </div>
   </body>
</html>

Next, create the style.less file.

style.less

@detached1: {
   font-size: @first @second;
};

.first {
   @first: 25px;
   .second {
      @detached2: @detached1;
      @second: 30px;
   }
}

.cont {
   .first > .second();
   @detached2();
}

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

lessc style.less style.css

Execute the above command; you will get the following error in the cmd −
