CSS Library All examples
Welcome to Dynamic Drive's new CSS library! Here you'll find original, practical CSS codes and examples such as CSS menus to give your site a visual boast.
Wire Frame Aura Menu
This is a clean looking CSS menu with simply a gray border outlining its edges. To add a little flare, an "aura" effect is added when the mouse moves over the menu items, realized using a gradient ellipse image. This menu supports easy alignment other than "left", such as "center" or "right" instead.
Matt Black Tabs
There's often beauty in simplicity. Matt Black Tabs is a clean CSS list menu that uses no images, and very small in footprint. Each tab is floated left to achieve its look and all contained in a wrapper that negate the need to manually clear "float" for the contents that immediately follow.
Vista Aero Buttons Menu
This menu consists of a row of independent, Vista aero looking CSS buttons, and departs from the typical list based menu structure. Each button appears initially faded out slightly via CSS opacity, then brought back to full opacity during the "hover" state.
Animated horizontal tabs
These sliding doors based blue tinted tabs "jump up" when selected, such as when the mouse rolls over each one. This is accomplished using a combination of relative positioning and padding on each tab. The result are tabs that animate without any scripting.
Arrow Bullet List Menu
This CSS list menu features category headers with a two toned background, UL elements that have their default margins and padding removed, and finally, LI elements with custom bullet images. The result is something simple but elegant, and resembling something you might have seen on this site already!
Bold CSS Buttons
These big, bold CSS buttons are constructed using a rounded edge button image sliced into two pieces, then put back together using CSS. The button text style reacts on the "hover" state.
CSS Oval buttons
These buttons use the sliding doors technique of CSS, plus two sliced background images with "on" and "off" states, to create flexible oval shaped CSS buttons, similar to CSS Square Buttons. Each button can accommodate text of variable widths and supports a hover effect when the mouse rolls over it. The only limitation is the height of the button, which is fixed based on the background image's height.
