Summary

In multi-column layouts, the column-rule CSS property specifies a straight line, or "rule", to be drawn between each column. It is a convenient shorthand to avoid setting each of the individual column-rule-* properties separately : {{Cssxref("column-rule-width")}}, {{Cssxref("column-rule-style")}} and {{Cssxref("column-rule-color")}}.

{{cssbox("column-rule")}}

Syntax

Formal syntax: {{csssyntax("column-rule")}}

Values

Accepts one, two or three values in any order:

<'column-rule-width'>
Is a {{Xref_csslength}} or one of the three keywords, thin, medium or thick. See {{cssxref("border-width")}} for details.
<'column-rule-style'>
See {{cssxref("border-style")}} for possible values and details.
<'column-rule-color'>
Is a {{Xref_csscolorvalue}} value.

Examples

p.foo { column-rule: dotted; }          /* same as "medium dotted currentColor" */
p.bar { column-rule: solid blue; }      /* same as "medium solid blue" */
p.baz { column-rule: solid 8px; }       /* same as "8px solid currentColor" */
p.abc { column-rule: thick inset blue; }

Live Example

padding:0.3em; background:gold; border:groove 2px gold; column-rule: inset 2px gold; column-width:17em;
