Parameter

  • dimension − Specifies a number with or without dimension.

  • unit − It changes the unit.

Example

The following example describes use of color function in the LESS file −

misc_example.htm

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

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

Next, create the style.less file.

style.less

.style {
   font-size:unit(30, px);
}

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 {
   font-size: 30px;
}
