04. Dynamic Pseudoclasses

The pseudoclasses that we saw in the previous lesson are useful when we want to target specific items that are relative to a containing object.

If we want to target the elements that appear when a user interacts with them, we can use dynamic pseudoclasses.

Link Pseudoclasses

Dynamic pseudoclasses are especially helpful when styling links.

:link
Link elements with an href attribute.
:visited
All links that have been visited.
:active
When a link be being activated, or when the user clicks a link. One the user lets go of the click, the link is not active anymore.
:hover
When then user mouses over a link.
:focus
When teh focus is set on an element. Users can use the TAB key to focus onto the next element.

The following code will turn a link blue when unvisited, its hover state to yellow, and green when visited.

a:link {
  color: blue;
}
  
a:hover {
  color: yellow;
}
  
a:visited {
  color: green;
}
