Example text

When trying to understand grids I have found it useful to visualise the process as creating an old-fashioned table for layout, except doing it in CSS. I then place my items inside the table cells. However, unlike tables for layout, by defining the grid in the CSS we are free to redefine it to suit the environment 42 in which the content is displayed. This means that grids can be a powerful tool in the future of responsive design. Grids and responsive web design I’m now going to take a look at a slightly more complex, and probably more realistic example to demonstrate how grid layout can be used for responsive design.

Main { -webkit-flow-into: article-thread; } Once you do this, the content will disappear as you haven’t yet specified anywhere for it to go. Each of my empty elements has a class of article-regions, so I can now target that class as being the recipient of the content. article-regions { -webkit-flow-from: article-thread; } This time, we are using the new flow-from property with a value that matches the name we used earlier. If you now refresh your page you will see that the content reappears. It is now flowing into the first of our regions.

Being able to display items independently of source order makes creating a different arrangement of elements for different screen sizes possible. You can also easily switch flex-direction as shown in the example below. We can display our navigation as a column until we get to a width of 700 pixels, at which point we switch to displaying it as a row. nav ul{ margin: 0; padding: 0; list-style: none; display: flex; flex-direction: column; justify-content: space-between; align-items: stretch; } @media only screen and (min-width: 700px) { 35 nav ul { flex-direction: row; } } Browser Tips Flexbox is a good example of how specifications in their early stages can change.
