How hovering over a division element to gradually change the width in CSS ?

  • Last Updated : 28 Apr, 2021

You can use transition property in CSS to make some transition effect as changing the width of an element. The transition effect can be defined in two states (hover and active) using pseudo-classes like : hover or: active or classes dynamically set by using JavaScript.

Syntax: 

transition: transition-property transition-duration

Note:

  •  transition-property : t specifies the CSS properties to which a transition effect should be applied like height, width etc.
  •  transition-duration :  It specifies the length of time a transition animation should take to complete.

Note: If any of the values are not defined then the browser assumes the default values.

Example 1:



HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style
h1{
  color: green;
}
div {
  width: 100px;
  height: 150px;
  background: linear-gradient(
    0deg,
    rgb(65, 233, 14) 20%,
    rgb(229, 231, 229) 50%,
    rgb(255, 85, 7) 98%
  );
  transition: width 2s;
     
   
}
.text {
  
display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center 
}
  
div:hover {
  width: 300px;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<center>
