React Bootstrap shadow is an effect used in web elements which provides important visual cues about objects' depth and directional movement.

They are the only visual cue indicating the amount of separation between surfaces. An object’s elevation determines the appearance of its shadow.

Creating shadows with MDB is very easy. You only need to add one of the shadow classes to chosen element.


Examples

Add one of the following classes to any html element to achieve a desired depth of the shadow

.z-depth-1

.z-depth-1-half

.z-depth-2

.z-depth-3

.z-depth-4

.z-depth-5


        <div className="shadow-box-example z-depth-5"></div>
      

          .shadow-box-example {
            height: 120px;
            width: 100%;
            background-color: #64b5f6;
          }
        

.z-depth-0

To remove existing shadow from given element use className .z-depth-0
