So I have a few "Related Record" components on my lightning pages like this, but I would like the components to have the Classic view. (As its much tighter and feels faster).

Therefore keeping the functionality of Lightning with the style of classic?

Related Record

Similar to what I did here by using a visualforce page to show details in a classic layout but retaining the lightning function :- Classic

Is it possible to adjust the component to look like classic or some type of work around?

Possibly edit the quick action to open in classic somehow?

EDIT:- My reason for this is because im trying to get a hybrid between Classic and lightning to have the best of both. Because classic has improved related lists that show more than 4 fields along the top and seems to be much faster with edits. Classic details also feel more compact and easier to read. While I can still handle lightning features.

Here is an example of my Classic Related List in Lightning. enter image description here

How it normally looks in Lightning with no hybrid. enter image description here

  • What exactly do you mean when you say to open a lightning component in a classic style? Lightning Components do not follow the Classic look and feel and that's the whole idea behind Lightning Experience, what are you exactly trying to achieve here?

  • The classic details format is much tighter and prefered here, but it lacks in aspects such as colour, status bars, Page headers and so much more. Like I say classic is much faster too IMO. Apr 25 '19 at 13:04
  • I am still not sure why would you want it that way. You are already in Lightning Experience with all the details right on the UI. Opening anything in Classic or Classic View while being in Lightning Experience doesn't seem the right use case here to me.

I think you can override the view button of related records to open that in Classic(via VF page).I haven't tried this, but it should work in theory.
