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.

Very nice, but why use float: left? display: inline-block will do the trick and you wont have to use any tricks to control the floated element.
