Hello Team,

I am using Syncfusion Button in a form but want to apply class(btn btn-primary) so that  it looks blue in color and match my site theme.

I am using class in the following way

@Html.EJ().Button("btnSaveDish").Type(ButtonType.Submit).Text("Save Dish").Size(ButtonSize.Medium).CssClass("btn btn-primary")

The class get applied but it is overidden by e-button-normal class colors.

Can anybody help me in getting through this.

Hi Manoj, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
You can change the appearance of button control using CssClass property. Background color, font color and desired styles can be changed by overriding the existing styles applied to the control element.  
If you have added bootstrap classes as CssClass, then it will be added at the root element of the widget and it doesn’t override the existing class values. So, please apply the style as to override the existing default values as mentioned in the below code example. 
    .primary.e-btn { 
        color: #fff; 
        background-color: #337ab7; 
    .primary.e-btn.e-select:hover { 
        color: #fff; 
        background-color: #286090; 
For your convenience, we have attached the sample in the below location,
