Masks

Bootstrap masks

Bootstrap masks alter the visibility of an element by either partially or fully hiding it. Masks are used to make content more visible in the picture.


Pattern

            <div class="view">
                <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/Nature/8-col/img (132).jpg" class="img-fluid" alt="Image of ballons flying over canyons with mask pattern one.">
                <div class="mask pattern-8 flex-center">
                    <p class="white-text">.pattern-8</p>
                </div>

Usage

Step 1: Create a wrapper containing class .view.



        <div class="view">
            [...]
        </div>

      

Step 2: Set a path to the image. If you want to make your image responsive, remember to add a class .img-fluid.



        <div class="view">
            <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Others/nature-sm.jpg" class="img-fluid" alt="">
        </div>

      

Step 3: Add a class .mask to cover the image with the pattern.



        <div class="view">
            <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Others/nature-sm.jpg" class="img-fluid" alt="">
            <div class="mask">

            </div>
        </div>

      

Step 4: Choose a pattern class from the examples above.



        <div class="view">
            <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Others/nature-sm.jpg" class="img-fluid" alt="">
            <div class="mask pattern-1">

            </div>
        </div>

      

Step 5: If you want to add some text, you can use a class .flex-center to center it, and .white-text to give your text a stronger contrast and make it more visible.



        <div class="view">
            <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Others/nature-sm.jpg" class="img-fluid" alt="">
            <div class="mask pattern-1 flex-center">
                <p class="white-text">.pattern-1</p>
            </div>
        </div>

Usage

Instruction and markup are the same like for the patterns. It means you add an overlay class (.rgba-black-strong in the example below) to the .mask.

See the full list of the overlay colors and intensity



        <div class="view">
            <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Others/nature-sm.jpg" class="img-fluid" alt="">
            <div class="mask flex-center rgba-black-strong">
                <p class="white-text">strong overlay</p>
            </div>
        </div>

Map of dependencies of SCSS files in MDBootstrap:


    Legend:

    '-->' means 'required'

    All free and pro files require files from 'core' catalog

    'none' means 'this component doesn't require anything except core files'

    A file wrapped by `< >` means that this file make the base component prettier but it isn't necessary for the proper working

    All PRO components require 'pro/_variables.scss' file
