How to Use an Active Button After Click in Tailwind CSS

To use an active button state after clicking it in Tailwind CSS, you can utilize the active utility class. The active class is applied when the button is clicked or activated

<button class="rounded bg-blue-500 px-4 py-2 text-white hover:bg-blue-700 active:bg-blue-800">
    Click me
</button>
 Active Button After Click

bg-blue-500 sets the initial background to blue. hover:bg-blue-700 changes it to a darker blue on hover. text-white makes the text white. font-bold makes the text bold. py-2 px-4 adds vertical (0.5rem) and horizontal (1rem) padding. rounded gives the button rounded corners. active:bg-blue-800 changes the background to an even darker blue when clicked, providing visual feedback.

Create a button that becomes active after clicking using the Tailwind CSS classes active:bg-blue-800, along with focus:outline-none and focus:ring focus:border-blue-300.

<button class="bg-blue-500 hover:bg-blue-700 text-white py-2 px-4 rounded focus:outline-none focus:ring focus:border-blue-300 active:bg-blue-800">
