    Summary

    The <shape> CSS data type denotes the specific form of a region. This region is used to define on which part of an element some properties like clip do apply.

    In the current specification, a <shape>, though designed to denote any kind of form, can only represents a rectangular region, defined using the rect() functional notation.

    The rect() function

    The rect() functional notation produces a region in the form of a rectangle.

    Syntax

    rect(top, right, bottom, left)
    

    Values

    rect.png

    top
    Is a <length> representing the offset for the top of the rectangle relative to the top border of the element's box.
    right
    Is a <length> representing the offset for the right of the rectangle relative to the left border of the element's box.
    bottom
    Is a <length> representing the offset for the bottom of the rectangle relative to the top border of the element's box.
    left
    Is a <length> representing the offset for the left of the rectangle relative to the left border of the element's box.

    Interpolation

    Values of the <shape> CSS data type which are rectangles can be interpolated in order to allow animations. In that case they are interpolated over their top, right, bottom and left component, each treated as a real, floating-point number. The speed of the interpolation is determined by the timing function associated with the animation.

    Examples

     img.clip04 { 
       clip: rect(10px, 20px, 20px, 10px);
     }
