Parameters

  • color1 − A color object to overlay.

  • color2 − A base color object which is the determinant color making the resultant color lighter or darker.

Returns

color

Example

The following example demonstrates the use of hardlight function in the LESS file −

<html>
   <head>
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "style.css" type = "text/css" />
   </head>

   <body>
      <h2>Hardlight Function</h2>
      <div class = "color1">
         <p>(color1) <br> #ff6600</p>
      </div><br>
      
      <div class = "color2">
         <p>(color2) <br> #0000ff</p>
      </div><br>
      
      <div class = "res">
         <p>(result) <br> #0000ff</p>
      </div>
   </body>
</html>

Next, create the style.less file.

style.less

.color1 {
   width: 100px;
   height: 100px;
   background-color: #ff6600;
}

.color2 {
   width: 100px;
   height: 100px;
   background-color: #0000ff;
}

.res {
   width: 100px;
   height: 100px;
   background-color: hardlight(#ff6600, #0000ff);
}

p {
   padding: 30px 0px 0px 25px;
   color: white;
}

You can compile the style.less to style.css by using the following command −

lessc style.less style.css

Execute the above command, it will create the style.css file automatically with the following code −

style.css

.color1 {
   width: 100px;
   height: 100px;
   background-color: #ff6600;
}

.color2 {
   width: 100px;
   height: 100px;
   background-color: #0000ff;
}

.result {
   width: 100px;
   height: 100px;
   background-color: #0000ff;
}

p {
   padding: 30px 0px 0px 25px;
}
