Set Dark Mode Setting

Using this Action, you can set the app theme to Light/Dark or set it as per the system.


Before you add this action, configure the light and dark mode colors from Theme Settings > Colors section.

Types of Dark Mode Setting

There are three types of the mode you can set:

  • From System: Set the Light/Dark Mode based on system preference. That means you don't need to build the Light/Dark Mode switch UI in your app. The dark mode will be set automatically if a user has set the dark mode in the Android/iOS operating system.

  • Light Mode: Set the theme mode to Light.

  • Dark Mode: Set the theme mode to Dark.

How do I set dark mode as the default theme in my application?

Follow the same steps as Defining Set Dark Mode Setting Action above but add the action Set Dark Mode Setting on On Page Load instead of the usual On Tap gestures. This will update the default mode to dark mode irrespective of the system settings of the user's device.
