    In need of creating a simple toggle/switch slide button from image reference


    I wish to create a toggle/switch button function suited for the image attached.


    The button is essentially choosing between two states/selections/radio buttons, either public or private / yes and no.
    The white box on the left is opaque(the only moving box that can go left or right), hiding the 'private' selection underneath (state off), while the 'public' selection is displayed (on, selected)
    The background with the text is static, while the box can toggle left/right

    I have seen bootstraps version and other similar buttons, but they dont work in the manner that I would like.

    I tried various ways of doing this myself, but being more of a designer, I failed miserably.
    I made this design, and I wish for it to work successfully. I preferably would like this to be strictly HTML and CSS, without having to be jQuery enabled.

    I would need some helpful coders to help me a.s.a.p, and will be greatly appreciated

    Thank you!

    Here's a good article from CSS-Tricks on a checkbox "hack", which is like what you're doing:

    Here's a code snippet that implements it:

    Ron nailed it. The checkbox hack is the greatest innovation in CSS in about the last 5 years. I'm not exaggerating...I use it in a ton of places, including a new image gallery technique I'm working on for a pair of sites under construction that I should be launching in the next few weeks. I love me some checkbox hackin'!

    In your case, you'd probably do a single background for your public/private (or yes/no) and adjust the background position using CSS depending on whether the box is checked or not.
