The task is to make the close button using Pure CSS. There are two approaches that are discussed below.
 

Approach 1: Create a <div> inside another <div> which has alphabet ‘X’ in it which helps in displaying the close button. When the “click” event occurs on ‘X’, then perform the operation. In this example the outer <div> has been hidden when the event occurs.
 

Example: This example implements the above approach.

 

html




<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
 
<head>
    <style>
        .outer {
            background: green;
            height: 60px;
            display: block;
        }
 
        .button {
            margin-left: 93%;
            color: white;
            font-weight: bold;
            cursor: pointer;
        }
    </style>
</head>
 
<body style="text-align:center;">
     
    <h1>GeeksForGeeks</h1>
     
    <p>
        Click on the cross to
        hide the element.
    </p>
     
    <div class="outer">
        <div class="button">X</div>
    </div>
    <br>
     
    <p id="GFG"></p>
 
    <script>
        var down = document.getElementById("GFG");
        var el = document.querySelector('.button');
         
        el.addEventListener('click', function () {
            var el2 = document.querySelector('.outer');
            el2.style.display = "none";
        });
    </script>
</body>
 
</html>


Output: 
 

 

Approach 2: jQuery is used in this approach. Create a <div> inside another <div> that contains the alphabet ‘X’ to display the close button. When the “Click” event occurs on ‘X’ then perform the operation. In this example, the outer <div> has been hidden when the event occurs.

 

Example: This example implements the above approach.

 

html




<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
 
<head>
    <style>
        .outer {
            background: green;
            height: 60px;
            display: block;
        }
 
        .button {
            margin-left: 93%;
            color: white;
            font-weight: bold;
            cursor: pointer;
        }
    </style>
    <script src=
    </script>
</head>
 
<body style="text-align:center;">
    <h1>
        GeeksForGeeks
    </h1>
    <p>
        Click on the cross to
        hide the element.
    </p>
    <div class="outer">
        <div class="button">X</div>
    </div>
    <br>
    <p id="GFG">
    </p>
 
    <script>
        var down = document.getElementById("GFG");
        $('.button').on('click', function () {
            $('.outer').hide();
        });
    </script>
</body>
 
</html>
