HTML <embed> style Attribute

The style attribute on an <embed> tag assigns a unique style to the embedded object. A style contains one or more CSS property/value pairs that define the appearance of the embed element.

Example

#

A style attribute on an <embed> element.

<embed src="/img/html/vangogh-bedroom.jpg" 
       style="padding: 10px; border: 3px solid navy;">

Using style

The style attribute specifies the style, i.e. look and feel, of the <embed> element.

A style contains any number of CSS property/value pairs, separated by semicolons (;).

The style attribute overrides any other style that was defined in a <style> tag or an external CSS file.

This inline styling affects the current <embed> element only.

    let element = document.getElementById("myembed");

    if (element.style.borderColor === "navy") {
       element.style.borderColor = "orchid";
    } else {
       element.style.borderColor = "navy";
    }
  }
</script>

The style attribute assigns a border to the <embed> element.

Clicking the button calls JavaScript that toggles the border color to another color.
