React Bootstrap Hover effects

React Hover Effects - Bootstrap 4 & Material Design

React Bootstrap hover effect appears when a 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.

          }
        }
        
        export default HoverPage;
    

Usage

Step 1: Create a wrapper containing component <MDBView>.


          <MDBView>
             ...
          </MDBView>
      

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



          <MDBView hover zoom>
              ...
          </MDBView>

      

Step 3: Set a path to the image by adding src attribute.


          <MDBView hover zoom>
            <img
              src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Others/documentation/img%20(131)-mini.jpg"
              className="img-fluid"
              alt=""
            />
          </MDBView>
      

Step 4: Add a component <MDBMask> to cover the image with the overlay and choose color and intensity of the overlay.


        <MDBView hover zoom>
            <img
              src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Others/documentation/img%20(131)-mini.jpg"
              className="img-fluid"
              alt=""
            />
            <MDBMask overlay="red-slight">
            </MDBMask>
          </MDBView>
      

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



          <MDBView hover zoom>
            <img
              src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Others/documentation/img%20(131)-mini.jpg"
              className="img-fluid"
              alt=""
            />
            <MDBMask className="flex-center" overlay="red-slight">
                <p className="white-text">Super light overlay</p>
              </MDBMask>
          </MDBView>
