-<note warning>This applies only to GTK 2 versions of Xfce Panel, and doesn't apply to GTK 3.</note>+----
  
-Besize the appearance settings in the panel preferences, there are also a couple of classes you can style through the ''.gtkrc-2.0'' file. Below we'll summarize the global classes. Some plugins also have gtkrc style properties for specific settings, you can find those in the manual page of the specific plugin.+===== CSS Selectors =====

-===== XfcePanelWindowExternal =====+===== GTK3 Theme testing and debugging =====
  
-The class of the external window used for the 4.6 plugins.+For testing, you can make modifications in the override file located at **~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css**. If the directory path doesn't exist, then you will have to create it.
  
-===== XfcePanelWindowWrapper =====+    mkdir -p  ~/.config/gtk-3.0
  
-The class of the window used for external plugins running in the wrapper application.+To see your modifications applied, you can reset the xfce4-panel process by typing the following command into a terminal:
  
-===== XfcePanelImage =====+    xfce4-panel -r
  
-Class of the images used on most of the panel plugins.+For debugging, you can use the [[https://wiki.gnome.org/action/show/Projects/GTK/Inspector|GtkInspector tool from GNOME]]. To inspect the XFCE panelbar and its plugins, you can perform the following:
  
-<file txt .gtkrc-2.0> +Kill the current xfce panel process: 
-style "xfce-panel-image-style" + 
-+    pkill xfce4-panel
