Hi Edwin,   
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.   
1) To Apply Syncfusion Built-in Theme   
We can apply built-in theme, please copy the theme CSS files from the following installed location.   
<Installed Location>\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Web\Samples\Web\Content\ej   
And refer to the same in your application.   
Use the following code example to refer “flat-saffron-dark” built-in theme in your application and kindly refer the below link in Site.Master page of your application   
<link rel='nofollow' href="Content/ej/web/flat-saffron-dark/ej.web.all.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />   
We have prepared sample for you reference, please find the sample link below.   
Other References:   
2) To create the new theme based on existing theme we can use “Theme Studio”   
You can change the style of the control using Syncfusion theme studio and it will generate the css file. Please refer those file in your application. Kindly check the below references.   
3) Using CssClass:   
You can override the style of the Menu like the selection color and hover color using CssClass property. Please check the below code.   
<ej:Menu ID="JobSearch" runat="server" EnableCenterAlign="true" SubMenuDirection="right" CssClass="Purple-dark" EnableRTL="false">   
                <ej:MenuItem Id="Home" Text="Home"></ej:MenuItem>   
                <ej:MenuItem Text="Search Jobs">   
                        <ej:MenuItem Text="Advanced Search"></ej:MenuItem>   
                        <ej:MenuItem Text="Jobs by Company"></ej:MenuItem>   
                        <ej:MenuItem Text="Jobs by Category"></ej:MenuItem>                        
Main Menu   
Sub Menu   
Hover color   
  .Purple-dark .e-menu.e-horizontal .e-mhover > a {   
             background: #ffbf80;   
   .Purple-dark .e-menu.e-horizontal .e-list > ul li.e-haschild:hover > a    {   
        background: #ffbf80;   
Selection color   
.Purple-dark .e-menu.e-horizontal .e-list.e-active > a{   
        background: #ff8c1a;   
.Purple-dark .e-menu.e-horizontal .e-list > ul li.e-haschild.e-active > a   
        background: #ff8c1a;   
In the above code the value of “CssClass” property is set as “Purple-dark”. We have changed the selection color and hover color for both the Main Menu and also for the subMenu on using CssClass property.   
We have prepared a sample for your reference.   
Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
