CSS Border

CSS Border: The CSS border properties allow you to determine the style, width, and color of an element’s border.

The CSS border is a shorthand property used to set the border on an element.

CSS Border Style

The border-style property determines what sort of border to display.

The accompanying values are allowed:

• dotted – Defines a dotted border

• dashed – Defines dashed border

• solid – Defines a solid border

• double – Defines a double border

• groove – Defines a 3D grooved border. The impact relies upon the border-color value

• ridge – Defines a 3D ridge border. The impact relies upon the border-color value

• inset – Defines a 3D inset border. The impact relies upon the border-color value

• outset – Defines a 3D outset border. The impact relies upon the border-color value

• none – Defines no border

• hidden – Defines a hidden border

The border-style property can have from one to four values (for the top border, right border, bottom border, and the left border).

Demonstration of the different border styles:

p.dotted {border-style: dotted;}
p.dashed {border-style: dashed;}
p.solid {border-style: solid;}
p.double {border-style: double;}
p.groove {border-style: groove;}
p.ridge {border-style: ridge;}
p.inset {border-style: inset;}
p.outset {border-style: outset;}
p.none {border-style: none;}
p.hidden {border-style: hidden;}
p.mix {border-style: dotted dashed solid double;}
