Shadow

You can use predefined shadows defined in theme or your own:

<Paper shadow="xs">
Paper with predefined shadow from theme
</Paper>
<Paper shadow="13px 18px 25px #e5e5e5, 1px 3px 3px #e5e5e5, -1px 3px 3px #e5e5e5">
Paper with custom shadow
</Paper>

Padding

Paper has predefined padding: xs, sm, md, lg, xl defined in theme.spacing. Alternatively, you can use a number to set padding in px:

<Paper padding="sm" /> // -> theme predefined small spacing
<Paper padding={20} /> // -> { padding: '20px' }

Radius

xs, sm, md, lg, xl radius values are defined in theme.radius. Alternatively, you can use a number to set radius in px:

<Paper radius="lg" /> // -> theme predefined large radius
<Paper radius={0} /> // -> { borderRadius: 0 }

You can get root element ref with elementRef prop:

import { useRef } from 'react';
import { Paper } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
