Here is the Answer

WebAssist CSS styles are typically applied through classes, so to override them you can create a new class with the same selector and then define new styles for that class in your CSS file. Here's an example:

Let's say that WebAssist has a CSS class .wa-button that defines styles for a button element. To override this style, you can create a new class with the same selector like this:

Copy code
.wa-button {
background-color: red;
color: white;
font-size: 18px;
In this example, the background-color, color, and font-size properties are all overridden with new values. You can replace these values with whatever styles you want to apply to the element.

You can also add more specificity to your CSS selector to ensure that your styles take precedence over the WebAssist styles. For example, you could add an ID to the element or add additional class names to the selector.

It's important to note that overriding WebAssist styles may have unintended consequences, so you should test thoroughly after making changes. Additionally, if you're using a third-party theme or framework, overriding styles could break the design or functionality, so it's important to review the documentation and guidelines before making changes.
