I have some content that I want to put a border around.

How do I do this so that the border color is take from the theme?

In other words, the border color for a dark theme is different from the light theme.

So how do I specify a border color based on the theme so that if a dark theme is being used, my widget has the correct border color?

Do I have to use the less file to create this?  Or is there an existing class I can use that will give me widget the theme border, border-radius, and border-color to match the theme?

I just want to be able to wrap a bootstrap card in the correct border without breaking the theme.

Hi Greg, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We are not maintaining common class for applying border-color, boder-radius when changing the themes. In our themestudio, we have maintained border, boder-color css in a variable not in a class. So, when we changed the dark theme, it will apply the border color, border radius to the control elements.  
For example: If we apply the dark theme and set boder-color for the datepicker component, then it will apply the border-color to the datepicker element as shown below: 
<style type="text/css" class="cssStyles"> 
       .e-datewidget .e-in-wrap { 
We have prepared the sample for this and it is available under the following link:

What I did was modify the theme.less file like this:

    border-color: @content-border-color;

Now I have a class that I can put on any element to take the theme color.
