The list-style property in CSS is used to set the list style. This property is a combination of three other properties, namely, list-style-type, list-style-position, and list-style-image, which can be used as a shorthand notation for these three properties. The default value of this property will be used if any one of the values is missed.

Syntax:

list-style: list-style-type list-style-position list-style-image|initial|inherit;

Property values:

  • list-style-type: This value sets the marker (such as a disc, character, or custom counter style) of a list item element. Its default value is a disc.
  • list-style-position: This value sets the position of the marker relative to a list item. Its default value is “outside”.
  • list-style-image: This value sets an image to be used as the list item marker. Its default value is “none”.

We will understand the concepts of list-style property through the examples.

Example 1: This example illustrates the use of the list-style property where the position value is set to inside.
