CSS Layout - inline-block


The inline-block Value

It has been possible for a long time to create a grid of boxes that fills the browser width and wraps nicely (when the browser is resized), by using the float property.

However, the inline-block value of the display property makes this even easier.

inline-block elements are like inline elements but they can have a width and a height.

Examples

The old way - using float (notice that we also need to specify a clear property for the element after the floating boxes):

Example

.floating-box {
    float: left;
    width: 150px;
    height: 75px;
    margin: 10px;
    border: 3px solid #73AD21;
}

.after-box {
    clear: left;
}

The same effect can be achieved by using the inline-block value of the display property (notice that no clear property is needed):

Example

.floating-box {
    display: inline-block;
    width: 150px;
    height: 75px;
    margin: 10px;
    border: 3px solid #73AD21;
}
