How to Get Div Shaped into a Trapezoid

How to Get Div Shaped into a Trapezoid
0

#1

Hey, folks!
I am in the midst of totally redesigning my portfolio webpage via the usage of modern diagonal patterns in web design. In the process of making my divs into diagonal shapes, I’m running into a problem: my topmost div needs to be of a trapezoidal shape, where the bottom of the div should match the angle of the buttons div below it and then be straight on top, sort of like this: https://codepen.io/erikdkennedy/pen/pRVbzx. I do not know how to achieve it! Right now the div shape that I have will not even extend behind the div absolute-positioned behind it. Do you know why that is?

Here is a link to my Codepen here: https://codepen.io/IDCoder/pen/jvqdqv?editors=1100

Here is my CSS code:

I don’t think I totally understand what you what to get from your layout.

The pen you’re using as a reference is faking the skew effect with an image which divides both the header and the section. In your pen, you’re using a transformation (skewY). Actually I think the reference is not very performant as loading an image to do that could be achieved another way, like using SVG or a clip-path.

You can achieve the same results by using negative top margin/padding in the buttons div and applying a different background color in the about me header. You can also use a clip-path, but in your layout you’re gonna have a hard time matching the diagonal with the bottom div.

Please, can you explain a little dipper how you want it to look like?


#3

I agree with @SpaniardDev that your question is not really clear. The effect you are after, like in the example, is (- in my opinion -)* best achieved with clip-path. I made a demo here: https://codepen.io/stevenkuipers/pen/VGjzXo

@steven_kuipers, hi, thanks for your time! This is what I am trying to accomplish:

I want my header top header div to look like this shape below (what I was alluding to in original post:

And this here was and is my premiere inspiration:

You don’t need to do anything to the header (unless you want it to be also skewed) , just use a background in the buttons div and give it some top margin/padding. This way you can fake the diagonal as if it was from the header and the buttons div. I don’t know if I made myself clear… :slight_smile:

I would personally change the style of the header because it won’t fit with the rest of the UI. You’re trying ti achieve a modern layout and the header is quite vintage in my opinion.


#7

Hi @SpaniardDev! Thanks for chiming in again! Now you did see the diagram showing how I want the header to look right? And hmmm…“just use a background in the buttons div and give it some top margin/padding. This way you can fake the diagonal as if it was from the header and the buttons div”. This sounds very interesting! Except that I no longer want a background behind the buttons, see here (changed the style): https://codepen.io/IDCoder/pen/jvqdqv?editors=1100 …how would your suggestion fit this case?

Also, in regards to the header, I might change the design I have in there…but I really want a computer display screen. The gradient I have now isn’t really the best. The chrome trim that I really ant, unfortunately isn’t possible with CSS. I was thinking about CAD modeling the chrome surround that I want, but then I will have to make it to be scalable without losing the radius on the ends, etc… …still contemplating some things…but what I aim to do is to apply a transform: perspective() CSS rule to that display screen. I swear it’s gonna be cool hahaha :grinning::thinking::wink:


#8

If you don’t play with background to make a visual separation then you’ll need a border I guess.

You can do CAD responsive. Many CAD apps have options or plugins to render into SVG, and as you might already know, SVG is responsive as hell :smiley:


#9

Say what!? Wow! I’m about to go check my CAD program right now to see if they have SVG render option. Another thing is that most free photo hosting websites don’t supprt SVG files…


#10

You can host it on Dropbox, for example. Even github if you want. There are many alternatives I think. Even if you don’t find a hosting for your svg files, they are nothing but text, so you get the idea :slight_smile:


#11

I’m lost here man lol!


#12

You can embed the svg inside your code.

<svg viewbox="0 0 100 100"><circle... /></svg>


#13

Hi @SpaniardDev, take this for example…I want to have the below image scalable for my display screen in my header…

EQit%20Network%20Button%202

I opened it with Adobe Illustrator, and I get this screen:

Should I just save it as a .svg file or copy the svg code compiled in the SVG Code button:


#14

Yes. This code can be saved as .svg or used inside the html but you’ve got to know what you’re doing, of course.

Edit: The way you did it won’t work as expected because you’re just embedding a png inside the SVG.

You want to work with vectors, not bitmaps. Vectors are scalable and they always have the same definition (they’re computed math lines) and since you’re using a PNG inside of it, it will behave just like a PNG, pixelating the way an image does.

If you need to use a bitmap because you want it to have that exact level of complexity or because you don’t know yet how to work with SVG files, go for PNG instead.
