Show additional content on hover

CSS, Visual · Oct 11, 2021

Creates a card that displays additional content on hover.

  • Use overflow: hidden on the card to hide elements that overflow vertically.
  • Use the :hover and :focus-within pseudo-class selectors to change the card's styling if the element is hovered, focused or any of its descendants are focused.
  • Set transition: 0.3s ease all to create a transition effect on hover/focus.
