CSS Oval buttons

Author: Dynamic Drive

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.

For your convenience, we've created 5 different colored ovals buttons to get you on your way!


The images used: Choose the desired set to download (2 images total):

Gray oval (2 images):

Blue oval (2 images):

Green oval (2 images):

Red oval (2 images):

Orange oval (2 images):

The CSS:

Note: The image paths referenced in the CSS above assumes you're using the gray ovals. If you're using another, be sure to update the image paths accordingly.

Nice, thanks. I tried George's one and unfortunately it doesn't work with transparent background gifs.

Hey, I want to make it so after a person hovers over the button, it stays in the darker color. Can I and how would I be able to do that?

also, if used in conjunction of another *.css, how can I make it not show the other *.css link color as well as not show a underline on the hover?

This is very useful. 2 comments:

- Be sure to use &nbsp; for spaces in your button text.
- As others have stated, the buttons fill the width of their container, so they can't be centered in a td or div. Any ideas on centering?

I found very useful to generate some buttons.
