Summary

The border-image-source CSS property defines the {{xref_cssimage}} to use instead of the style of the border. If this property is set to none, the style defined by {{cssxref("border-style")}} is used instead.

Note: Though any {{xref_cssimage}} can be used with this CSS property, browser support is still limited and some browsers support only images defined using the url() functional notation.

{{cssbox("border-image-source")}}

Syntax

Formal syntax: {{csssyntax("border-image-source")}} 
border-image-source: none                                  /* no border-image, use the specified border-style */
border-image-source: url(image.jpg)                        /* the image.jpg is used as image */
border-image-source: linear-gradient(to top, red, yellow)  /* a gradient is used as image */

border-image-source: inherit

Examples

See {{cssxref("border-image")}} for examples of what the various source values will do.
