Advertisements

Description

It lightens the color in the element. It has the following parameters −

  • color − It represents the color object.

  • amount − It contains percentage between 0 - 100%.

  • method − It is an optional parameter which is used for adjustment to be relative to current value by setting it to relative.

Example

The following example demonstrates the use of lighten color operation in the LESS file −

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

   <body>
      <h2>Example of Lighten Color Operation</h2>
      <div class = "myclass1">
         <p>color :<br> #426105</p>
      </div><br>

      <div class = "myclass2">
         <p>result :<br> #639108</p>
      </div>
   </body>
</html>

Next, create the style.less file.

style.less

.myclass1 {
   height:100px;
   width:100px;
   padding: 30px 0px 0px 25px;
   background-color: hsl(80, 90%, 20%);
   color:white;
}

.myclass2 {
   height:100px;
   width:100px;
   padding: 30px 0px 0px 25px;
   background-color: lighten(hsl(80, 90%, 20%), 10%);
   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

.myclass1 {
   height: 100px;
   width: 100px;
   padding: 30px 0px 0px 25px;
   background-color: #426105;
   color: white;
}

.myclass2 {
   height: 100px;
   width: 100px;
   padding: 30px 0px 0px 25px;
   background-color: #639108;
   color: white;
}
