CSS | border-bottom-color Property

The CSS border-bottom-color property is used to set the color of the bottom border of an element. It is mandatory to declare the border-style or border-bottom-style property before using the border-bottom-color property always as there must exist a border first before we change its color.

The current value of the element is the default color of this property. CSS border-bottom-property is animatable but cannot be inherited.


border-bottom-color: color|transparent|initial|inherit;
