🔹 Card-mod - Add css styles to any lovelace card

Hey Ildar,

did you already check the picture_glance card? I’d love to be able to spin the icons when ‘on’ for the switches:

  - type: picture-glance
    title: Vijverpompen
    state_filter:
      'off': grayscale(72%)
    entity: binary_sensor.vijverpompen
    entities:
      - switch.vijverpomp_links
      - switch.vijverpomp_rechts
      - input_boolean.vijverpompen_alterneren
      - sensor.pond_buiten_sensor_calibrated_temperature
      - binary_sensor.vijverpompen
      - sensor.vijverpompen
    image: /local/images/vijver.png

Thank you so much. It worked perfectly.
I’m going to save your post for later.

Sorry, I thought I was going to make it work but I’m missing something else.
Hidding the icon and hidding the label worked separately, but they don’t if I put them together.
I tried this but it only removes the label:

  - type: entities
    entities: 
      - entity: input_select.test
        # style: |
          # :host state-badge {
            # display: none;
          # }
        style:
          ha-paper-dropdown-menu:
            $:
              paper-menu-button:
                .dropdown-trigger:

                    $:
                      paper-input-container:
                        $: |
                          .floated-label-placeholder {
                            height: 0px;
                          }
                        .: |
                          label {
                            display: none;
                          }
          hui-input-select-entity-row:
            $: |
              state-badge {
                display: none;
              }

Thank you!

Thank you!

Regarding a bug described here:

Can anyone tell me what could be a difference between these 2 cases:
This works BAD:

type: entities
title: color -> ha-svg-icon (+div)
style:
  .header-footer.footer:
    hui-buttons-header-footer:
      $:
        hui-buttons-base:
          $:
            div:
              state-badge:
                $:
                  ha-icon:
                    $: |
                      ha-svg-icon {
                        color: red;
                      }    
entities:
  - sun.sun
  - type: divider
footer:
  type: buttons
  entities:
    - entity: sun.sun
    - entity: sun.sun

This works GOOD:

type: entities
title: color -> ha-svg-icon (+div 2)
style:
  .header-footer.footer:
    hui-buttons-header-footer$hui-buttons-base$div:
      state-badge:
        $:
          ha-icon:
            $: |
              ha-svg-icon {
                color: red;
              }    
entities:
  - sun.sun
  - type: divider
footer:
  type: buttons
  entities:
    - entity: sun.sun
    - entity: sun.sun

image

The schema:

I don’t think that’s valid syntax.

What is a valid syntax then?
Usually I use this method and it works…
Should I use here .header-footer.footer hui-buttons-header-footer: ?
Tried, same misplacement.

o wow, you’ve been at it once again. so cool. thanks!

regarding the suspected bug, would this be in card-mod, or the core picture-glance card…

still, give the fact you say we can now only mod the full group (right side, with the togglable entities): can we set a template there for them to only toggle when ‘on’). Really interested to see what would happen.

btw, if I try your top code with the spinning icons, nothing is spinning:

How to limit an area for the title:
By default the long title occupies all available area and icons are shifted to the right, causing some items not to be displayed:
image
To prevent this you may limit an area available for the title.
But in this case the title will be clipped.
This styling makes a better look:

Note that the “sun” icon is not centered - IMHO it happens because the icon ITSELF not centered properly.
Update: should be fixed in a future MDI release.

How to display long states:
Here is how states are displayed by default:
image

To make states visible:

  • increase a width for items;
  • decrease a font-size.

image

type: picture-glance
title: title
image: /local/images/blue_low.jpg
entities:
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
style:
  .box .row: |
    .wrapper {
      width: 70px !important;
    }
    .wrapper ha-icon-button {
      align-self: center;
    }
    .wrapper .state {
      font-size: 9px;
    }

Long states may be displayed as 2 lines. For this enable word-wrapping for a text.
Note that the whole row is automatically increased.

  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun

    }
    .wrapper ha-icon-button {
      align-self: center;
    }
    .wrapper .state {
      text-overflow: unset;
      white-space: normal;
      font-size: 9px;
    }

How to change a style for some item:
image

type: picture-glance
title: title
image: /local/images/blue_low.jpg
entities:
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
style:
  .box .row: |
    div:nth-child(3) {
      width: 70px !important;
    }
    .wrapper ha-icon-button {
      align-self: center;
    }
    div:nth-child(3) .state {
      font-size: 9px;
    }

or this:
image

type: picture-glance
title: title
image: /local/images/blue_low.jpg
entities:
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
style:
  .box .row: |
    div:nth-child(3) {
      width: 50px !important;
    }
    .wrapper ha-icon-button {
      align-self: center;
    }
    div:nth-child(3) .state {
      text-overflow: unset;
      white-space: normal;
      font-size: 9px;
    }

How to display states for resized icons:
If icons are resized, then states may be misplaced:
image

type: picture-glance
title: title
image: /local/images/blue_low.jpg
entities:
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
style: |
  ha-card {
    --mdc-icon-size: 80px;
  }

If a width for items is increased, then it is clear that states are misaligned too (not aligned with respect to icons):
image

type: picture-glance
title: title
image: /local/images/blue_low.jpg
entities:
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
style: |
  ha-card {
    --mdc-icon-size: 80px;
  }
  ha-card .box .row div {
    width: 100px !important;
  }

How to solve it:
image

type: picture-glance
title: title
image: /local/images/blue_low.jpg
entities:
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
style: |
  ha-card .box .row .wrapper ha-icon-button {
    --mdc-icon-button-size: 80px !important;
  }
  ha-card {
    --mdc-icon-size: 80px;
  }
  ha-card .box .row .wrapper {
    align-items: center !important;
  }
  ha-card .box .row div {
    width: 100px !important;
  }

How to align text vertically for the title (+ resizing the footer):
If states are displayed, then the title may be not aligned vertically:
image
To align it vertically, set the "line-height" property = height of the footer (should be measured via Inspector):

type: picture-glance
title: vertical align
image: /local/images/blue_low.jpg
entities:
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
style: |
  .box .title {
    line-height: 52px;
  }

image

Also, it is possible to specify the height of the footer explicitly:
image

type: picture-glance
title: vertical align
image: /local/images/blue_low.jpg
entities:
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
    show_state: true
  - entity: sun.sun
style: |
  ha-card .box {
    height: 80px;
  }
  ha-card .box .title {
    line-height: 80px;
  }

Changed background for the bottom row:
image

type: picture-glance
title: Kitchen
image: /local/images/blue_low_2.jpg
entities:
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
style: |
  ha-card .box {
    background-color: rgba(0,255,0,0.5);
  }

Styling an image:
This section describes how to make the image to fit the defined card’s size.
By default the card’s size depends on the image’s size:
image

type: picture-glance
title: Kitchen
image: /local/images/blue_low_2.jpg
entities:
  - entity: binary_sensor.iiyama_2_ping_availability_status
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean

If the card’s size is defined then the image’s size do not change automatically:
image

type: picture-glance
title: Kitchen
image: /local/images/blue_low_2.jpg
entities:
  - entity: binary_sensor.iiyama_2_ping_availability_status
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
style: |
  ha-card {
    height: 300px !important;
  }

Here is how to fix it:
image

type: picture-glance
title: Kitchen
image: /local/images/blue_low_2.jpg
entities:
  - entity: binary_sensor.iiyama_2_ping_availability_status
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
style:
  hui-image:
    $: |
      div {
        height: inherit;
      }
      div img {
        height: inherit;
      }
    .: |
      hui-image {
        height: 100%;
      }
  .: |
    ha-card {
      height: 300px !important;
    }

Without a bottom row:
image
Note: this will work if the bottom row’s height is 40px (+8px for padding); otherwise use an approprite value in formula instead of “48px”.

type: picture-glance
title: Kitchen
image: /local/images/blue_low_2.jpg

  - entity: binary_sensor.iiyama_2_ping_availability_status
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: sun.sun
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
  - entity: input_boolean.test_boolean
card_mod:
  style:
    hui-image:
      $: |
        div {
          display: inline;
        }
        div img {
          height: 100%;
        }
      .: |
        hui-image {
          height: calc(100% - 48px);
        }
    .: |
      ha-card {
        height: 300px !important;
      }

cool :wink:

meanwhile I am struggling with the mod-card config, and more specifically, I am trying too have the button card show a transparent background, to reveal the image better. Since the buttons use a template in which depending on the theme a certain color variable is used there’s some difficulty in finding the correct syntax:
this works, but has the wrong effect, it simply sets the opacity on all of the button, including text and icon

            - type: custom:button-card
              template:
                - button_switch
                - spin
              style: |
                ha-card {box-shadow: none;opacity: 0.9;}
              entity: switch.vijverpomp_links
              triggers_update: sensor.vijverpomp_links_actueel
              name: Pomp left

Or:

              styles:
                card:
                  - filter: opacity(50%)

I dont want that, and would prefer to set the opacity to the background only, and tried:

            - type: custom:button-card
              template:
                - button_switch
                - spin
              style: |
                ha-card {box-shadow: none;
                         background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.2);}

this doesnt stick at all:

I also tried background:, to no avail…
what to do?

edit
this was no card-mod issue, sorry, its a button-card styling thing… needed to merge state by id (because of the other stylings already set):

              state:
                - value: 'on'
                  id: state-on
                  styles:
                    card:
                      - background: rgba(0,0,0,0.6)
                - value: 'off'
                  id: state-off
                  styles:
                    card:
                      - background: rgba(0,0,0,0.6)

great!

                  .mdc-icon-button {
                    animation: rotation 2s linear infinite;

                      transform: rotate(360deg);
                    }
                  }

                  }
                  @keyframes rotation {
                    0% {
                      transform: rotate(360deg);
                    }
                    100% {

                    }
                  }

shows as:

Apr-02-2021 14-06-05

one more styling wish would be to combine this with state dependency:
on: rotation on, color blue
off: no rotation, color grey

Can we combine those in the styling mod?

You may also use another animations:
aaaaa

Yes, we can.

now you’re teasing me…

BTW, could you share a picture of pump?

what do you mean exactly, I’ve posted a gif above?

I mean this thing:
image
Is it a pump or a valve ?)

it is mdi:engine, and mdi:engine-off customized in custom-ui:

    switch.vijverpomp_*:
      templates:
        icon: >
          if (state == 'on') return 'mdi:engine';
          return 'mdi:engine-off';
        icon_color: >
          if (state == 'on') return 'blue';
          return 'grey';

so I don’t need that in this style, only color and animation. (Customized color isn’t recognized in this Lovelace card unfortunately, hence the need to set it in the card-mod style)

in real life they are 2 pumps, not valves

I know nothing about Custom UI, it is in my future plans.
