import { Dialog } from '@neoprospecta/angular-dialog';
    myFunction() {

    • For example, create file my-theme.scss with this code (change as you want the colors of $primary, $accent, $warn, etc).
// Import Angular Material Design components themes 
@import '~@angular/material/theming';
@include mat-core();
// Default App Custom theme 
$primary: mat-palette($mat-teal, 500);
$accent: mat-palette($mat-amber);
$warn: mat-palette($mat-orange);
$theme: mat-light-theme($primary, $accent, $warn);
@include angular-material-theme($theme);

    • Crate a file named _all-theme.scss and include this code:
// Import all App custom components theme. 
@import '~@neoprospecta/angular-dialog/theming/_dialog-theme.component';
// Apply the theme. 
@mixin app-components-theme($theme) {
