LESS - get - unit Function


Advertisements

Description

The get - unit function returns its unit where the argument is present with number and units. If the argument does not contain any unit then it returns empty value.

Example

The following example demonstrates the use of get unit in the LESS file −

misc_example.htm

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

   <body>
      <div class = "list">
         <h2>Welcome to TutorialsPoint</h2>
         <p>The largest Tutorials Library on the web.</p>
      </div>
   </body>
</html>

Next, create the style.less file.

style.less

.list {
   font-size:get-unit(30px);
   padding-left:get-unit(25);
}

You can compile the style.less file 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

.list {
   font-size: px;
   padding-left: ;
}

Output

Follow these steps to see how the above code works −

  • Save the above html code in the misc_example.htm file.

  • Open this HTML file in a browser, the following output will get displayed.
