Configuring the Mode Switcher Widget

To design the appearance and behavior of the Mode Switcher widget, activate the Property Panel of the widget by clicking it to access its Styles and Settings.

  1. Go to the widget Styles to make the required configuration of general styling features (see Global Styles) to achieve the desired visual and functional outcomes.

  2. Access the widget Settings to set its visibility (see Visibility Settings) on the website based on criteria such as your customers' location, session status, device type, browser, language preference, etc., to tailor it to specific user segments or conditions.
