HTML | DOM Style outlineOffset Property

The Style outlineOffset property is used for offsetting an outline and draw it beyond the border edge.
Outlines do not take space, unlike borders. It returns a string which represents the outline-offset property of an element.


Property values: = "length|initial|inherit"

Below program illustrates the Style outlineOffset property method:






<!DOCTYPE html>

        #samplediv {
            margin: auto;
            border: 2px green;

        h1 {
            color: green;
        h2 {
            font-family: Impact;
        body {
            text-align: center;
