CSS Dotted Border


If you want a dotted border around a piece of text using CSS then follow our tutorials. Using a CSS dotted border code its easy. The CSS dotted border code will tell the HTML code to place a dotted border around the text.

With this CSS Code you can create a dotted color border around text when you build a website, increase the size of the dots, adjust the padding so your text will not be to close to the dotted border, change the background color in the border, change the text color, and lastly change the text size.

If you change the text size you will have to also change the line height to stop the text going over each other you can also do that. The text is also set to justify this means that the text will align itself on the right as the sample.

Copy the below CSS Dotted Border Code

Below is the CSS Code that will make the dotted border work.

 p.dotted {
 border: dotted 2px #959695;
 padding: 10px;   
 background: #FFFFFF;        
 color: #000000;
 line-height: 24px;
 text-align: justify;

The HTML Code

You will have to place any text you want a dotted border around in a HTML code, the CSS code will tell the HTML code what to do. Below is the HTML code:

<p class="dotted">Place your text here</p>

Using the paragraph class “dotted” only text you place in it will follow the CSS rule. This means that no other text on your page will be effected.

Editing the CSS

 p.dotted {
 border: dotted 2px #959695;    Change the border width and colour
 padding: 10px;                 Adjust the padding
 background: #FFFFFF;           Change the background colour
 color: #000000;                Change the text colour

 font-size:20px;                Font size
 text-align: justify;           Text aligns to the right

The above code is designed to have your text align to the right. If you do not want your text to align to the right then remove:

text-align: justify;
