Click on the icon to launch the animation. You can customize animation by defining position to 'top', 'left', 'right'. Horizontal sliding effect requires passing to sliding-card additional parameter width to maintain card's layout through animation. See API tab for more information.

Card Animation - API

In this section you will find advanced information about the FlippingCard and SlidingCard components. You will learn which modules are required in this component, what are the possibilities of configuring the component, and what events and methods you can use in working with it.


Flipping Card

Bootstrap flipping card is a card animation that gives an element effect of flipping to the other side upon the interaction. The Vue component is in fact a wrapper taking in two cards (holding face front and face back classes) and a flipped boolean prop responsible for rendering either side. This way you can apply your own flip-firing logic wherever you like.

API Reference: Properties

Name Type Default Description Example
tag String 'div' Sets a tag of an element's wrapper <mdb-flipping-card tag="li"/>
innerTag String 'div' Sets element's tag <mdb-flipping-card innerTag="li"/>
flipped Boolean false Cotrols which side of the card is showing <mdb-flipping-card :flipped="isFlipped"/>
innerClass String, Array '' Binds class names to inner element <mdb-flipping-card innerClass="custom-inner-class"/>
outerClass String, Array '' Binds class names to outer element <mdb-flipping-card outerClass="custom-outer-class"/>

Sliding Card

API Reference: Properties

Name Type Default Description Example
show Boolean false Controls display of an element <mdb-sliding-card :show="isShown"/>
direction String "bottom" Sets direction of the animation - available options are: top, bottom, left, right <mdb-sliding-card direction="top"/>
width Number If we're using horizontal animation (direction="left" or direction="right") we need to add width property with value in pixels in order to prevent content from wrapping. <mdb-sliding-card direction="left" :width="220" />
