Lecture: CSS Borders

In this lecture we will explore how to add borders around an element. We will start by creating a class with commonly used border style properties.

.myborder {
Border: 1px; (border-bottom, border-left, border-right, border-top)
border-color: #333333; (color name, hexadecimal number, RGB Code).
Border-style: Dashed (dotted, double, groove, hidden, inset, none, outset, ridge, solid)

The first property, border, is used to specify where the border will be applied, and the thickness. The thickness is stated in pixels.

  • For a border only at the top of the element, we would use border-top. border-bottom, border-right, and border-left are also other values that can be used. If we leave it as just border, the border will be applied to all four sides.

  • Next we have the border-color. This will be the color of the border itself. The border-color value can be represented by a color name, hexadecimal number, or RGB code.

  • A border style can be applied using the border-style property. There are serveral possible styles. We have used dashed which will create a dashed-line border effect.
