CSS

You can override all the class names injected by Material-UI thanks to the classes property. This property accepts the following keys:

Name Description
root Styles applied to the (normally root) component element. May be wrapped by a container.
container Styles applied to the container element if children includes ListItemSecondaryAction.
focusVisible Pseudo-class applied to the component's focusVisibleClassName property if button={true}.
dense Styles applied to the component element if dense.
alignItemsFlexStart Styles applied to the component element if alignItems="flex-start".
disabled Pseudo-class applied to the inner component element if disabled={true}.
divider Styles applied to the inner component element if divider={true}.
gutters Styles applied to the inner component element if disableGutters={false}.
button Styles applied to the inner component element if button={true}.
secondaryAction Styles applied to the component element if children includes ListItemSecondaryAction.
selected Pseudo-class applied to the root element if selected={true}.

Have a look at the overriding styles with classes section and the implementation of the component for more detail.

If using the overrides key of the theme, you need to use the following style sheet name: MuiListItem.
