Templates

css-shapes-template This tools starts off with a templates tab that allows you to pick a shape to use as a base which you can customise. The shapes that you can choose from the start are:

  • Square
  • Rectangle
  • Parallelogram
  • Diamond
  • Trapez
  • Triangle
  • Circle
  • Oval
  • Pacman

To use any of these shapes you simply just have to click on the shape you want to use. This will change the preview shape at the top of the screen and change all the sliders to the values needed to create the selected shape.

Size

css-shapes-size The next tab is for size, this will allow you to change the height, width and padding to create the area the exactly size you want.

There are rotate and skew sliders to change the angle of the shape.

Background

css-shapes-background

The background tab allows you to easily change the background colour of the shape your creating. Here you have the option of picking any colour you want by using the colour picker on the screen.

Border

css-shapes-border

Many of the shapes are created by changing the different border sides of the shapes, here you able to have full control over all 4 sides of the borders.

Some of the shapes need to have a transparent background to work correctly, for example the triangle shapes needs to have a bottom border and then sets the left and right borders to be transparent.

This shows how easy it is in CSS to create some shapes, just set the bottom border to be the height of the triangle with a background colour, then set the left and right borders to be half the height of the triangle with a transparent background.


.css-shapes-triangle{ 
    height: 0px; 
    width: 0px; 
    border-left: 100px solid transparent; 
    border-right: 100px solid transparent; 
    border-bottom: 200px solid #428bca; 
}
