Button Ripple Effect in HTML CSS & JavaScript

Hello readers, Today in this blog you’ll learn how to create a Button Ripple Effect using HTML CSS & JavaScript. Earlier I have shared many blogs on Gradient Glowing Effect on Button, 3D Flip Button, and Colorful Glowing Effect on Button. But now I’m going to create a Ripple Effect on the Button.

The Ripple effect provides an immediate visual confirmation at the point of contact when the users interact with UI elements. And a button is any graphic or text box that lets your visitors interact with your website. Interaction is commonly an action that you want your visitors to take.

In this program (Button Ripple Effect), at first, on the webpage, there are two gradient buttons with different background-color. Generally, gradient means a mix of two or more colors. And when you click on the particular button there is shown a ripple effect and it expands smoothly as you can see in the image. This ripple effect is dynamic that means this ripple starts expanding from the point where you clicked.

If you’re feeling difficult to understand what I am saying. You can watch a full video tutorial on this program (Button Ripple Effect in HTML & CSS).

Video Tutorial of Button Ripple Effect in JavaScript

As you have seen the ripple effect in the video. And I hope you have understood the basic codes behind creating this ripple effect. You also knew this ripple effect is a dynamic effect that means the position of this effect is not fixed. This type of effect is in trend nowadays. Many websites are using this ripple effect on their UI elements like buttons, links, and many more.

To make this ripple effect dynamic, JavaScript plays a significant role. Without JavaScript, we can’t make this effect dynamic. If you’re a beginner and you know HTML & CSS only, you can also create a simple ripple effect, but that effect won’t be dynamic.
