Remarks

The IHTMLStyle::borderColor property is a shorthand for the following properties:

Up to four different colors can be specified in the following order: top, right, bottom, left.

  • If one color is supplied, it is used for all four sides.
  • If two colors are supplied, the first is used for the top and bottom, and the second is used for left and right.
  • If three colors are supplied, they are used for top, right and left, and bottom, respectively.

The IHTMLStyle::borderColor property does not render if the IHTMLStyle::borderStyle property is set to none.

Some browsers do not recognize color names, but all browsers should recognize RGB color values and display them correctly.

Examples

The following example uses the IHTMLStyle::borderColor property to set the border color on different div elements.


<body>   
   <div class="green"></div>
   <div class="blue"></div>
   <div class="red"></div>
   <div class="yellow"></div>
   <div class="all"></div>
</body>

In the CSS below, the border colors for four different div elements are set using RGB, RGBA, HSL, and HSLA.

The border-color property applied to four div elements



.green {
   border-color: rgb(126, 187, 65);
}
.blue {
   border-color: rgba(47, 160, 217, 0.5);
}
.red {
   border-color: hsl(12, 86%, 55%);
}
.yellow {
   border-color: hsla(42, 99%, 53%, 0.7);
}


In the CSS below, each of the sides of the border for the element is set to a different color. The first value, sets the top border color, the second value sets the right border color, the third value sets the bottom border color, and the fourth value sets the left border color.
