Cover

Expand images, videos or iframes to cover their entire container and place your own content on top.

Usage

To have an image cover its parent element, add the .uk-cover-container class to the parent and the uk-cover attribute to the image.

<div class="uk-cover-container">
    <img src="" alt="" uk-cover>
</div>

Note To position content on top of the covering element, use the Position component. To adapt your content for better visibility, add the .uk-light or .uk-dark class from the Inverse component.

  • Image removed.
  • <div class="uk-cover-container uk-height-medium">
        <img src="images/dark.jpg" alt="" uk-cover>
    </div>

Video

To create a video that covers its parent container, add the uk-cover attribute to a video. Wrap a container element around the video and add the .uk-cover-container class to clip the content.

The Cover component inherits all properties from the Video component which means videos are muted and play automatically. The video will pause whenever it's not visible and resume once it becomes visible again.

<div class="uk-cover-container">
    <video uk-cover></video>
</div>
  • <div class="uk-cover-container uk-height-medium">
        <video src="https://yootheme.com/site/images/media/yootheme-pro.mp4" autoplay loop muted playsinline uk-cover></video>
    </div>

Iframe

To apply the Cover component to an iframe, you need to add the uk-cover attribute to the iframe. Now add the .uk-cover-container class to a container element around the iframe to clip the content.

<div class="uk-cover-container">
    <iframe src="" uk-cover></iframe>
</div>
  • <div class="uk-cover-container uk-height-medium">
        <iframe src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/c2pz2mlSfXA?autoplay=1&amp;controls=0&amp;showinfo=0&amp;rel=0&amp;loop=1&amp;modestbranding=1&amp;wmode=transparent" width="1920" height="1080" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen uk-cover></iframe>
    </div>

Responsive height

To add responsive behavior to your cover image, you need to create an invisible <canvas> element and assign width and height values to it, according to the aspect ratio you want the covered area to have. That way it will adapt the responsive behavior of the image.

<div class="uk-cover-container">
    <canvas width="" height=""></canvas>
    <img src="" alt="" uk-cover>
</div>
  • Image removed.
  • <div class="uk-cover-container">
        <canvas width="400" height="200"></canvas>
        <img src="images/dark.jpg" alt="" uk-cover>
    </div>

Viewport height

Adding the uk-height-viewport attribute from the Height component will stretch the height of the parent element to fill the whole viewport.

<div class="uk-cover-container" uk-height-viewport>
    <img src="" alt="" uk-cover>
</div>
