Onclick in CSS

.rsearch input {
	padding: 10px 0px;
	border: none;
	border-bottom: 2px solid #EEEEEE;
	font-size: 1.3rem;
	width: 150px;
	outline: none;
.rsearch input:active {
	width: 250px;

Hi there, I was looking for when an input of form is clicked its width should increase:

The above CSS works, but as soon as I release the mouse click it disappears. Can I do this w.o using JS that once clicked it should stay unless the mouse has hovered away from that?

Would it work if you used focus rather than active?


Thanks, it worked like a charm.
