Box shadow in IE7 and IE8

I want to implement box shadows in IE7 and IE8. I have tried everything without succeeding. Here is the css that I am using to apply colored shadow to a div:

    position: absolute;
    z-index: 1; 
    -moz-box-shadow: 0px -3px 55px 20px #147197;
    box-shadow: 0px -3px 55px 20px #147197;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0px -3px 55px 20px #147197;
    behavior: url(;

This file is a solution to IE shadow problems. But it only gives black shadows, not colour shadows. I tried:

filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(color='#969696', Direction=100, Strength=13);

But it creates a directional shadow, and I want an omni-directional shadow. Also tried blur filter but it needs to have additional divs which is unadvisable in my current case. Any expert opinion on this problem ?


Use CSS3 PIE, which emulates some CSS3 properties in older versions of IE.

It supports box-shadow (except for the inset keyword).

in ie8 you can try

-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(Strength=5, Direction=135, Color='#c0c0c0')";
 filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Shadow(Strength=5, Direction=135, Color='#c0c0c0');

caveat: in ie8 you loose smooth fonts for some reason, they will look ragged

You could try this

progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.dropshadow(OffX=0, OffY=10, Color='#19000000'), 
progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.dropshadow(OffX=10, OffY=20, Color='#19000000'), 
progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.dropshadow(OffX=20, OffY=30, Color='#19000000'), 
progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.dropshadow(OffX=30, OffY=40, Color='#19000000');

use this for fixing issue with shadow box

filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.dropShadow (OffX='2', OffY='2', Color='#F13434', Positive='true');
