Emboss Filter

This topic documents a feature of Visual Filters and Transitions, which is deprecated as of Windows Internet Explorer 9.

Displays the content of the object as an embossed texture using grayscale values.

Syntax

HTML
<ELEMENT STYLE=
"filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Emboss(sProperties)"
... >
Internet Explorer 5.5 or later
Scripting
object .style.filter =
"progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Emboss(sProperties)"
Internet Explorer 5.5 or later

Possible Values

sProperties String that specifies one or more properties exposed by the filter.

Members Table

The following table lists the members exposed by the Emboss object.

Attributes/Properties
Attribute Property Description
Bias Bias

Sets or retrieves a percentage of a value that is added to each color component of the filtered result.

enabled Enabled

Sets or retrieves a value that indicates whether the filter is enabled.

Remarks

The object that the filter is applied to must have layout before the filter effect displays. You can give the object layout by setting the height or width property, setting the position property to absolute, setting the writingMode property to tb-rl, or setting the contentEditable property to true.

You can assign multiple filters or transitions to an object by declaring each in the filter property of the object. The following div declaration assigns two filters and a Wheel transition to a div element.


<DIV STYLE="width:100%; filter:
    progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.MotionBlur(strength=13, direction=310)
    progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Blur(pixelradius=2)
    progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Wheel(duration=3);">
        Blurry text with smudge of gray.</div>     
When multiple filters are applied to an object, each filter is processed in source order, with the exception of procedural surfaces, which are computed first. To emphasize a filter's effect, place it last in source order or on the object's parent. Always place transitions last in source order.

Note  As of Internet Explorer 9, the visual effect of this filter is only applied when content is displayed on a screen; the effect is not applied when content is printed.

Examples

The following example shows the effects of this filter on an image.

Code example: http://samples.msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/samples/author/filter/Emboss.htm

This example uses the Enabled property to change the DIV object between normal and embossed display.


<SCRIPT>

<!-- Toggle the Enabled property to emboss the image.  -->
function fnToggle(oObj) {
    if (oDiv.filters(0).enabled){
        oDiv.filters(0).enabled='false';
        oObj.innerText='Make Embossed';}
    else {                                                        
        oDiv.filters(0).enabled='true';
        oObj.innerText='Make Normal';}
}
</SCRIPT>
 
    <DIV ID="oDiv" STYLE="position:absolute; left:270px; filter: 
            progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.emboss(enabled='false')" >
        An image - >    
        <IMG SRC='/workshop/graphics/earglobe.gif' />
    </DIV>
<BUTTON onclick="fnToggle(this)"> Make Embossed</BUTTON><BR/>
