Summary

The border-left-style CSS property sets the line style of the bottom border of a box.

The specification doesn't define how borders of different style connect in the corners.
  • {{ Xref_cssinitial() }}: {{ Cssxref("none") }}
  • Applies to: all elements
  • {{ Xref_cssinherited() }}: no
  • Percentages: N/A
  • Media: {{ Xref_cssvisual() }}
  • {{ Xref_csscomputed() }}: as specified

Syntax

border-left-style: border-style       or
border-left-style: inherit

where:

border-style
Is a keyword describing the style of the bottom border. It can have the following values:
none
fake
Like for the hidden keyword, displays no border. In that case, except if a background image is set, the calculated values of {{ cssxref("border-left-width") }} will be 0, even if specified otherwise through the property. In case of table cell and border collapsing, the none value has the lowest priority: it means that if any other conflicting border is set, it will be displayed.
hidden
fake
Like for the none keyword, displays no border. In that case, except if a background image is set, the calculated values of {{ cssxref("border-left-width") }} will be 0, even if specified otherwise through the property. In case of table cell and border collapsing, the hidden value has the highest priority: it means that if any other conflicting border is set, it won't be displayed.
dotted
fake
Displays a series of rounded dots. The spacing of the dots are not defined by the specification and are implementation-specific. The radius of the dots is half the calculated {{ cssxref("border-left-width") }}.
dashed
fake
Displays a series of short square-ended dashes or line segments. The exact size and length of the segments are not defined by the specification and are implementation-specific.
solid
fake
Displays a single, straight, solid line.
double
fake
Displays two straight lines that add up to the pixel amount defined as {{ cssxref("border-width") }} or {{ cssxref("border-left-width") }}.
groove
fake
Displays a border leading to a carved effect. It is the opposite of ridge.
ridge
fake
Displays a border with a 3D effect, like if it is coming out of the page. It is the opposite of groove.
inset
fake
Displays a border that makes the box appear embedded. It is the opposite of outset. When applied to a table cell with {{ cssxref("border-collapse") }} set to collapsed, this value behaves like groove.
outset
fake

Displays a border that makes the box appear in 3D, embossed. It is the opposite of inset. When applied to a table cell with {{ cssxref("border-collapse") }} set to collapsed, this value behaves like ridge.

inherit

  Represents the border style used by the parent of the current element.

Examples

{{ CSSRefExampleLink("border") }}

element {
        border-left-size: 1px;
