HTML | DOM Style borderStyle Property

The DOM Style borderStyle property is used to set or return the border style of an element.

Syntax:

  • To get the borderStyle
    object.style.borderStyle
  • To set the borderStyle
    object.style.borderStyle = "none | hidden | dotted | dashed | 
    solid | double | groove | ridge | inset | outset | initial |
    inherit"

Property Values: Each property value with the example.

Value Effect
none No border is created. This is the default value.
hidden Visually same as ‘none’, except it helps during border conflict resolution in table elements.
dotted Dots are used as the border.
dashed A dashed line is used as the border.
solid A single solid line is used as the border.
double Two lines are used as the border.
groove A 3D grooved border is displayed. The effect depends on border-color value.
ridge A 3D ridged border is displayed. The effect depends on border-color value.
inset A 3D inset border is displayed. The effect depends on border-color value.
outset A 3D outset border is displayed. The effect depends on border-color value.
