CSS Question

How to remove 'press button' effect and make button flat even on click

I have the button with following styles



button {
background: none;
border-color: #87db41;
color: #87db41;
padding: 5px 5px;
width: 30%;
text-align: center;
&: active {
border-color: @aviata-color;

}
}

<button>Subscribe</button>





And I want to remove 'press button' 3D effect. How can I do that?
I am using bootstrap also on my site if it helps

Answer

Just a suggestion.

When you use bootstrap, you can see, in the bootstrap.css code, this :

.btn {
  display: inline-block;
  padding: 6px 12px;
  margin-bottom: 0;
  font-size: 14px;
  font-weight: normal;
  line-height: 1.42857143;
  text-align: center;
  white-space: nowrap;
  vertical-align: middle;
  -ms-touch-action: manipulation;
      touch-action: manipulation;
  cursor: pointer;
  -webkit-user-select: none;
     -moz-user-select: none;
      -ms-user-select: none;
          user-select: none;
  background-image: none;
  border: 1px solid transparent;
  border-radius: 4px;
}
.btn:focus,
.btn:active:focus,
.btn.active:focus,
.btn.focus,
.btn:active.focus,
.btn.active.focus {
  outline: thin dotted;
  outline: 5px auto -webkit-focus-ring-color;
  outline-offset: -2px;
}
.btn:hover,
.btn:focus,
.btn.focus {
  color: #333;
  text-decoration: none;
}
.btn:active,
.btn.active {
  background-image: none;
  outline: 0;
  -webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 3px 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, .125);
          box-shadow: inset 0 3px 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, .125);
}
.btn.disabled,
.btn[disabled],
fieldset[disabled] .btn {
  cursor: not-allowed;
  filter: alpha(opacity=65);
  -webkit-box-shadow: none;
          box-shadow: none;
  opacity: .65;
}
a.btn.disabled,
fieldset[disabled] a.btn {
  pointer-events: none;
}
.btn-default {
  color: #333;
  background-color: #fff;
  border-color: #ccc;
}
.btn-default:focus,
.btn-default.focus {
  color: #333;
  background-color: #e6e6e6;
  border-color: #8c8c8c;
}
.btn-default:hover {
  color: #333;
  background-color: #e6e6e6;
  border-color: #adadad;
}
.btn-default:active,
.btn-default.active,
.open > .dropdown-toggle.btn-default {
  color: #333;
  background-color: #e6e6e6;
  border-color: #adadad;
}
.btn-default:active:hover,
.btn-default.active:hover,
.open > .dropdown-toggle.btn-default:hover,
.btn-default:active:focus,
.btn-default.active:focus,
.open > .dropdown-toggle.btn-default:focus,
.btn-default:active.focus,
.btn-default.active.focus,
.open > .dropdown-toggle.btn-default.focus {
  color: #333;
  background-color: #d4d4d4;
  border-color: #8c8c8c;
}
.btn-default:active,
.btn-default.active,
.open > .dropdown-toggle.btn-default {
  background-image: none;
}
.btn-default.disabled,
.btn-default[disabled],
fieldset[disabled] .btn-default,
.btn-default.disabled:hover,
.btn-default[disabled]:hover,
fieldset[disabled] .btn-default:hover,
.btn-default.disabled:focus,
.btn-default[disabled]:focus,
fieldset[disabled] .btn-default:focus,
.btn-default.disabled.focus,
.btn-default[disabled].focus,
fieldset[disabled] .btn-default.focus,
.btn-default.disabled:active,
.btn-default[disabled]:active,
fieldset[disabled] .btn-default:active,
.btn-default.disabled.active,
.btn-default[disabled].active,
fieldset[disabled] .btn-default.active {
  background-color: #fff;
  border-color: #ccc;
}
.btn-default .badge {
  color: #fff;
  background-color: #333;
}
<button class="btn btn-default">BTN DEFAULT</button>

First part just defines the display properties for all "btn" classes items. The second part defines more specific display settings for "btn-default" items (there is also btn-success btn-warning and so on...).

If you want to customize this, just copy the code and change the name as a "btnCustom" and edit settings. OR just add some custom specific btn-* display, like btn-pink, or anything. I often use this to make several buttons color themes, in my projects sometimes I have things like btn-black, btn-purple,...

Below code as example of "btnCustom btnCustom-default", a button that will not move, just keep static with bootstrap "default" color theme :

.btnCustom {
  display: inline-block;
  padding: 6px 12px;
  margin-bottom: 0;
  font-size: 14px;
  font-weight: normal;
  line-height: 1.42857143;
  text-align: center;
  white-space: nowrap;
  vertical-align: middle;
  cursor: pointer;
  -webkit-user-select: none;
     -moz-user-select: none;
      -ms-user-select: none;
          user-select: none;
  background-image: none;
  border: 1px solid transparent;
  border-radius: 4px;
}
.btnCustom:hover,
.btnCustom:focus,
.btnCustom.focus {
  text-decoration: none;
}
.btnCustom:active,
.btnCustom.active {
  background-image: none;
}
.btnCustom.disabled,
.btnCustom[disabled],
fieldset[disabled] .btnCustom{
  cursor: not-allowed;
  filter: alpha(opacity=65);
  opacity: .65;
}
a.btnCustom.disabled,
fieldset[disabled] a.btnCustom{
  pointer-events: none;
}
.btnCustom-default {
  color: #333;
  background-color: #fff;
  border-color: #ccc;
}
.btnCustom-default:focus,
.btnCustom-default.focus {
  color: #333;
}
.btnCustom-default:hover {
  color: #333;
}
.btnCustom-default:active,
.btnCustom-default.active,
.open > .dropdown-toggle.btnCustom-default {
  color: #333;
}
.btnCustom-default:active:hover,
.btnCustom-default.active:hover,
.open > .dropdown-toggle.btnCustom-default:hover,
.btnCustom-default:active:focus,
.btnCustom-default.active:focus,
.open > .dropdown-toggle.btnCustom-default:focus,
.btnCustom-default:active.focus,
.btnCustom-default.active.focus,
.open > .dropdown-toggle.btnCustom-default.focus {
  color: #333;
}
.btnCustom-default:active,
.btnCustom-default.active,
.open > .dropdown-toggle.btnCustom-default {
  background-image: none;
}
.btnCustom-default.disabled,
.btnCustom-default[disabled],
fieldset[disabled] .btnCustom-default,
.btnCustom-default.disabled:hover,
.btnCustom-default[disabled]:hover,
fieldset[disabled] .btnCustom-default:hover,
.btnCustom-default.disabled:focus,
.btnCustom-default[disabled]:focus,
fieldset[disabled] .btnCustom-default:focus,
.btnCustom-default.disabled.focus,
.btnCustom-default[disabled].focus,
fieldset[disabled] .btnCustom-default.focus,
.btnCustom-default.disabled:active,
.btnCustom-default[disabled]:active,
fieldset[disabled] .btnCustom-default:active,
.btnCustom-default.disabled.active,
.btnCustom-default[disabled].active,
fieldset[disabled] .btnCustom-default.active {
}
.btnCustom-default .badge {
  color: #fff;
  background-color: #333;
}
<button class="btnCustom btnCustom-default">BTNCUSTOM DEFAULT</button>

This looks kinda complicated, or long. But this allows you to build your own css "bootstrap-like" classes style and it is then reusable easily, save your edits in a "customBootstrap.css" file and add it to your project.

Hope this helps ;)
