List-item properties:

  • list-style-type
  • list-style-image
  • list-style-position

Syntax:

    li
    {
        list-style-type : value;
    }

This property is used to define the shape or type of bullet point used for each list-item.

The default value is disc.

  • decimal: In this value, a marker is a number.
  • disc: In this value, the circle marker is filled.
  • circle: In this value, the marker is a circle shape.
  • square: In this value, the marker is a square shape.
  • lower-roman: In this value marker is of lower-roman type.

list-style-image property

This property determines whether the list-item icon is set with an image and accepts a value of none or a URL that points to an image.

An image is used instead of a marker.

Example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

<head>
    <style>
        li {
            list-style-image: url('sqpurple.gif');
        }
    </style>
</head>

<body>
    <ul class="list">
        <li>red</li>
        <li>green</li>
        <li>blue</li>
    </ul>
</body>

</html>
