Style outlineStyle Property

❮ Style Object

Example

Definition and Usage

The outlineStyle property sets or returns the style of the outline around an element.

An outline is a line around an element. It is displayed around the margin of the element. However, it is different from the border property.

The outline is not a part of the element's dimensions, therefore the element's width and height properties do not contain the width of the outline.
