Closable Contact Chips

To close/hide the contact chip, add an element with an onclick event attribute that says "when you click you on me, hide my parent element" - which is the container div (class="chip").

Example

<div class="chip">
  <img src="img_avatar.jpg" alt="Person" width="96" height="96">
  John Doe
  <span class="closebtn" onclick="this.parentElement.style.display='none'">&times;</span>
</div>

Tip: Use the HTML entity "&times;" to create the letter "x".

Next, style the close button:

Example

.closebtn {
    padding-left: 10px;
    color: #888;
    font-weight: bold;
    float: right;
    font-size: 20px;
    cursor: pointer;
}

.closebtn:hover {
    color: #000;
}
