The text-decoration-color CSS property sets the color of decorations added to text by text-decoration-line.

The color applies to decorations, such as underlines, overlines, strikethroughs, and wavy lines like those used to mark misspellings, in the scope of the property's value.

CSS does not provide a direct mechanism for specifying a unique color for each line type. This effect can nevertheless be achieved by nesting elements, applying a different line type to each element (with the text-decoration-line property), and specifying the line color (with text-decoration-color) on a per‐element basis.

When setting multiple line-decoration properties at once, it may be more convenient to use the text-decoration shorthand property instead.

Syntax

/* <color> values */
text-decoration-color: currentColor;
text-decoration-color: red;
text-decoration-color: #00ff00;
text-decoration-color: rgba(255, 128, 128, 0.5);
text-decoration-color: transparent;

/* Global values */
text-decoration-color: inherit;
text-decoration-color: initial;
text-decoration-color: unset;

Values

<color>
The color of the line decoration.

Formal syntax

<color>

where
<color> = <rgb()> | <rgba()> | <hsl()> | <hsla()> | <hex-color> | <named-color> | currentcolor | <deprecated-system-color>

where
<rgb()> = rgb( <percentage>{3} [ / <alpha-value> ]? ) | rgb( <number>{3} [ / <alpha-value> ]? ) | rgb( <percentage>#{3} , <alpha-value>? ) | rgb( <number>#{3} , <alpha-value>? )
<rgba()> = rgba( <percentage>{3} [ / <alpha-value> ]? ) | rgba( <number>{3} [ / <alpha-value> ]? ) | rgba( <percentage>#{3} , <alpha-value>? ) | rgba( <number>#{3} , <alpha-value>? )
<hsl()> = hsl( <hue> <percentage> <percentage> [ / <alpha-value> ]? ) | hsl( <hue>, <percentage>, <percentage>, <alpha-value>? )
<hsla()> = hsla( <hue> <percentage> <percentage> [ / <alpha-value> ]? ) | hsla( <hue>, <percentage>, <percentage>, <alpha-value>? )

where
<alpha-value> = <number> | <percentage>
<hue> = <number> | <angle>
