    outline-style Redirect 1

    Summary

    The outline-style CSS property is used to set the style of the outline of an element. An outline is a line that is drawn around elements, outside the border edge, to make the element stand out.

    It is often more convenient to use the shortcut property outline instead of outline-style, outline-width and outline-color.

    Syntax

    Formal syntax: <br-style>
    
    outline-style: none
    outline-style: dotted
    outline-style: dashed
    outline-style: solid
    outline-style: double
    outline-style: groove
    outline-style: ridge
    outline-style: inset
    outline-style: outset
    
    outline-style: inherit
    

    Values

    <br-style> can be any of the following:

    none
    No outline (outline-width is 0).
    dotted
    The outline is a series of dots.
    dashed
    The outline is a series of short line segments.
    solid
    The outline is a single line.
    double
    The outline is two single lines. The outline-width is the sum of the two lines and the space between them.
    groove
    The outline looks as though it were carved into the canvas.
    ridge
    The opposite of groove: the outline looks as though it were coming out of the canvas.
    inset
    The outline makes the box look as though it were embeded in the canvas.
    outset
    The opposite of inset: the outline makes the box look as though it were coming out of the canvas.

    Examples

    .example {  /* make the outline a 3D groove style */
       outline-style: groove;        /* same result as "outline: groove" */ 
    }
