Syntax

border-bottom-style: <line-style>

Values

<line-style> = none | hidden | dotted | dashed | solid | double | groove | ridge | inset | outset
  • noneBorder is not drawn, color and width are ignored. If the border is an image, the image layer counts but is not drawn.
  • hiddenSame as none, except in terms of conflict resolution of collapsed borders. Any element with a hidden border suppresses all shared borders at that location. Borders with a style of none have the lowest priority.
  • dottedA series of round dots.
  • dashedA series of square-ended dashes.
  • solidA single line segment.
  • doubleTwo parallel solid lines with some space between them.
  • grooveDisplays a border leading to a carved effect. It is the opposite of ridge.
  • ridgeLooks as if it were coming out of the canvas.
  • insetLooks as if the content on the inside of the border is sunken into the canvas.
  • outsetLooks as if the content on the inside of the border is coming out of the canvas.
  • inherit
