LESS - Shade


Advertisements

Description

It is used to mix the color with black as you decrease the proportion of the color. It has the following parameters −

  • color − It represents a color object.

  • weight − It is an optional parameter that specifies the weight of the element by providing the percentage balance point between color and black.

Example

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

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

   <body>
      <h2>Example of Shade Color Operation</h2>
      <div class = "myclass1">
         <p>color :<br>rgba(66, 97, 5, 0.5)</p>
      </div><br>

      <div class = "myclass2">
         <p>result :<br>rgba(17, 24, 1, 0.75)</p>
      </div>
   </body>
</html>

Next, create the style.less file.

style.less

.myclass1 {
   height:100px;
   width:100px;
   padding: 30px 0px 0px 25px;
   background-color: rgba(66, 97, 5, 0.5);
   color:white;
}

.myclass2 {
   height:100px;
   width:100px;
   padding: 30px 0px 0px 25px;
   background-color: shade(rgba(66, 97, 5, 0.5),50%);
   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: rgba(66, 97, 5, 0.5);
   color: white;
}

.myclass2 {
   height: 100px;
   width: 100px;
   padding: 30px 0px 0px 25px;
   background-color: rgba(17, 24, 1, 0.75);
  color: white;
}
