HTML <picture> style Attribute

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

         style="display: inline-block;padding: 10px;border: 3px solid teal;">
  <source media="(max-width: 520px)" srcset="/img/html/vangogh-sm.jpg">
  <source media="(max-width: 768px)" srcset="/img/html/vangogh.jpg">
  <img src="/img/html/vangogh-lg.jpg" alt="Vincent Van Gogh">
</picture>

Using style

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

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

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

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

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