Border Radius

Introduction: This is the sixth part in my CSS Styling tutorials, in which I will be covering border radius. What is Border Radius: Border radius is a property within the border settings which allows you to change how curved the borders are. The radius sets the curve for the full border. Structure: border-radius: {Amount}{Measurement}; Example:
  1. border-radius: 5px;
Comparison: The bigger the border radius, the more curved the border will be.
  1. border-radius: 15px;
The above code will be a smoother curve than...
  1. border-radius: 5px;
Individual: You can also the individual corners border radius...
  1. border-top-left-radius: 2em;
  2. border-top-right-radius: 1em;
  3. border-bottom-right-radius: 4em;
  4. border-bottom-left-radius: 1em;
Linking CSS To a HTML Element: To link your CSS to an HTML element (text, div, etc.) you will need to decide whether you want to use a class or id, you will also need a unique name. Once you have those, go to your element in HTML and add...
  1. class='myClass'
... to the attributes of that element if you chose a class, or...
  1. id='myID'
if you chose an id. Make sure you replace 'myClass' and/or 'myID' with your unique name. Then, in the CSS you will want to encase your properties with...
  1. .myClass {
  2. //Properties go here
  3. }
if you chose a class, or...
  1. #myID {
  2. //Properties go here
  3. }
(You can remove the line beginning with // if you wish). Here's an example...
  1. <html>
  2. <head>
  3. <style>
  4. .circle {
  5. background-color: #000;
  6. color: #fff;
  7. width: 300px;
  8. height: 100px;
  9. border: 2px solid #000;
  10. border-radius: 100%;
  11. }
  12.  
  13. .rounded {
  14. background-color: #000;
  15. color: #fff;
  16. width: 300px;
  17. height: 100px;
  18. border: 2px solid #000;
  19. border-radius: 5px;
  20. }
  21.  
  22. .block {
  23. background-color: #000;
  24. color: #fff;
  25. width: 300px;
  26. height: 100px;
  27. border: 2px solid #000;
  28. border-radius: 0px;
  29. }
  30. </style>
  31. </head>
  32. <body>
  33. <div class='circle'>Circle</div>
  34. <div class='rounded'>Rounded</div>
  35. <div class='block'>Block</div>
  36. </body>
  37. </html>
