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.

Usage

Step 1: Insert the view-wrapper component.


<view-wrapper>
    [...]
</view-wrapper>

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


<view-wrapper class="overlay">
    [...]
</view-wrapper>

Step 3: Choose color and intensity of the overlay.


<view-wrapper class="overlay" overlay="red-strong">
    [...]
</view-wrapper>

Step 4: Set a path to the image.


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

Step 5: Add a class .mask to cover the image with the overlay.


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

Step 6: If you want to add some text, you can use a class .flex-center to center it. Same goes for the waves effect - simply add it to mdmask.


<view-wrapper class="overlay" overlay="red-strong" src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/Photos/Horizontal/City/6-col/img%20(3).jpg" alt="">
    <mdmask flex-center text="Strong overlay">
    </mdmask>
</view-wrapper>

Zoom effect.

To use a zoom effect, follow the instruction above, but insted of .overlay and .hm-red-strong(or any other color class) add a class .hm-zoom.

Shadow effect.

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


Colors and intensity

Use one of the view-wrapper's overlay prop to change the color and intensity.
