Overlay

Create an image overlay, which comes in different styles.

Usage

Add the .uk-overlay class to an element following an image to create the overlay panel. To create a position context, add the .uk-inline class from the Utility component to a container element around both. Finally, add one of the .uk-position-* classes from the Position component to align the overlay.

<div class="uk-inline">
    <img src="" alt="">
    <div class="uk-overlay uk-position-bottom"></div>
</div>

Note Add the .uk-light or .uk-dark class, so that elements will be optimized for better visibility on dark or light images.

        </div>
    </div>

Style modifiers

By default, the overlay has padding, but no additional styling. Add one of these modifier classes to add a background color to the overlay.

Default

For a simple background color, add the .uk-overlay-default class.
