Display Content on hovering Card using CSS

  • Last Updated : 01 Sep, 2021

In this article, we will see how we can create a card which displays content on hovering using the hover property using HTML and CSS.

HTML Code: In this section, we will create the structure of our HTML card. 
 

  1. Create a “div” with class name “card”.
  2. Create another “div” inside the main “div” with class name “card__inner”.
  3. Add heading “h2” and paragraph inside the second “div” with some random content.

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<body>
    <!-- div with class which will act
        as a container for us  -->
    <div class="card">
 
        <!--  Content of card to be
            display on hovering -->
        <div class="card__inner">
            <h2>GeeksforGeeks</h2>
 
             
<p>
                A Computer Science portal for
                geeks. It contains well written,
                well thought and well explained
                computer science and programming
                articles, quizzes and ...
            </p>
 
        </div>
    </div>
</body>
 
</html>

CSS Code: In this section, we will assign general properties to the element using CSS.

CSS






<style>
    /* Assigning general property to card  */
    .card {
        position: relative;
        width: 20rem;
        height: 30rem;
        background-size: cover;
        background-color: black;
        background-image: url('one.png');
        border-radius: 20px;
        background-position: center center;
        overflow: hidden;
    }
 
    /*  Assigning properties to inner
        content of card  */
    .card__inner {
        background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.9);
        color: #fff;
        position: absolute;
        top: 0px;
        bottom: 0px;
        left: 0px;
        right: 0px;
        z-index: 1;
        opacity: 0;
        padding: 2rem 1.3rem 2rem 2rem;
        transition: all 0.4s ease 0s;
    }
 
    /*  On hovering card opacity
        of content must be 1*/
    .card:hover .card__inner {
        opacity: 1;
    }
 
    /*  General property for heading
        and paragraph*/
    .card__inner h2 {
        margin-top: 1rem;
    }
 
    .card__inner p {
        overflow-y: scroll;
        height: 87%;
        padding-right: 1rem;
        font-weight: 200;
        line-height: 2.5rem;
        margin-top: 1.5rem;
    }
</style>
