Hover effects

Bootstrap hover effects

Bootstrap hover effect appears when user positions computer cursor over an element without activating it. Hover effects make a website more interactive.

However, we don't recommend to mix hover effects with functional elements (like dropdown on hover or hidden buttons visible only after hovering) because such approach isn't mobile-friendly.

MDB is a mobile-first framework, so we attach great importance to make each component easy to use for touch screens.

That's why our hover effects are gentle and decorative.

        <div class="view overlay zoom">
            <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/Nature/6-col/img%20(131).jpg" class="img-fluid " alt="smaple image">
            <div class="mask flex-center">
                <p class="white-text">Zoom effect</p>
            </div>
        </div>

      
Shadow effect


        <img src="[...]" class="hoverable">

      

Usage

Step 1: Create a wrapper containing class .view.



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

      

Step 2: Add a class of the effect you want to use (for example .overlay or .zoom).



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

      

Step 3: Set a path to the image. If you want to make your image responsive, remember to add a class.img-fluid.



        <div class="view overlay">
            <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/City/6-col/img%20(3).jpg" class="img-fluid " alt="">
        </div>

      

Step 4: Add a class .mask to cover the image with the overlay and choose color and intensity of the overlay.



        <div class="view overlay">
            <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/City/6-col/img%20(3).jpg" class="img-fluid " alt="">
             <div class="mask rgba-red-strong">

            </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 overlay">
            <img src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/City/6-col/img%20(3).jpg" class="img-fluid " alt="">
            <div class="mask flex-center rgba-red-strong">
                <p class="white-text">Strong overlay</p>
            </div>
        </div>

      

Zoom effect.

To use a zoom effect, follow the instruction above, but insted of .overlay add a class .zoom.

Shadow effect.

To use a shadow effect, you only need to add a .hoverable class to chosen element.
