CSS Shorthand Border Property

CSS Border – Shorthand Property

Like you saw in the previous page, there are many properties to consider when dealing with borders.

To shorten the code, it is also possible to specify all the individual border properties in one property.

The border property is a shorthand property for the following individual border properties:

  • border-width
  • border-style (required)
  • border-color

Example

p {
  border: 5px solid red;
}

You can also specify all the individual border properties for just one side:

Left Border

p {
  border-left: 6px solid red;
  background-color: lightgrey;
}

Result

Bottom Border

p {
  border-bottom: 6px solid red;
  background-color: lightgrey;
}

Result
