CSS Library CSS3 demos
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.
Flipboard CSS buttons
Flipboard creates a series of CSS buttons that flip horizontally on themselves when the mouse rolls over them, creating an elegant, eye catching effect. It employs CSS3 transform and transitions to do the heavy work.
Rollover Text Menu
This CSS menu creates the popular rollover text effect of text sliding up to reveal a duplicate of itself when the mouse rolls over a menu item.
Split Drop Down Menu
Animated UL background effect
This CSS example demonstrates animating the
min-width property of an element to create a stretching background effect. Here we use the technique to add a nice rollover effect to UL lists, so the user can easily home in on a particular list item just by rolling the mouse over it. The animation uses CSS3, which works in IE10+, FF, Chrome, and Safari.
3D Depressible Button
CSS can be used to really jazz up a plain looking link and create an awesome "call to action" button, as in the case of our 3D depressible button here.
Pure CSS3 Push Down Panel
This is a CSS3 push down panel that when clicked on reveals some content, pushing the rest of the page's content down in the process. The entire interface is created using CSS only, using a combination of CSS3 shadows, round borders, and CSS2 generated content.
CSS 3D Flip
One of the groundbreaking features in CSS3 is the ability to rotate HTML elements in 3D space. The below CSS code shows how to rotate a "2 sided" element either on its X or Y axis to reveal the content on the back side.
