When setting a parent element to
display: flex, its child elements align left-to-right like this:
Now, one of the neat things we can do with flexbox is change the direction so that child elements are stacked vertically on top of each other in a column. We can do that with the
flex-direction property (or with the
Okay, cool. But how would I do something like this with CSS Grid? As in, let’s say I want all those child elements to be aligned like this:
…instead of this:
By default, when I set a parent element to use CSS Grid, the elements will be positioned left-to-right just like flexbox. In the example below I’m telling the grid to have 6 columns and 2 rows, then let the child elements fill up each column of the first row before they fill up the columns of the second. You know, standard line wrapping behavior.
Basically what I want here is the opposite: I want our child elements to fill up column 1, row 1 and row 2, then move on to the next column. In other words, column wrapping! I know that if I create a grid with rows and columns I could individually place those elements into those positions. Like so:
Okay, neat! This gets me what I want but it’s a giant pain having to individually set the position of each item. It feels like I’m using
position: absolute and it doesn’t feel particularly smart. So what if I just wanted this layout to be done for me, so that each new child element would align into the correct spot…correctly?
How to clean sd card storage. What I’m asking for (I think) is this: is there a CSS Grid version of
Well, after searching around a bit, Rachel Andrew pointed me to the correct answer in her rather excellent playground, Grid by Example. And as you can see in this demo, Rachel shows us how to do just that:
Neato! Rachel does this with the
grid-auto-flow property: it tells a grid container how to fill the unoccupied space with child elements. So I can do that just by writing this:
By default, child elements of a grid will fill up each column until a row is filled, then it’ll flow into the next beneath it. This is why the default for
grid-auto-flow is set to
row because we’re filling up rows of the grid first. But if we set it to
column, then each new element will fill up all the space of column 1 before moving on to column 2, etc.
This is what the flow part of
grid-auto-flow means and for the longest time I ignored the property because it seemed (don’t laugh) scary. Just reading the word
grid-auto-flow is enough to make me want to shut off my laptop and walk into the ocean.
But! It’s a pretty useful property and makes a ton of sense, especially if you think of it as the CSS Grid version of
Grids are available in columns of halves, 3rds, 4ths, 5ths and 24ths.See the full list of values to find what you are needing.
Grids are applied to nodes by using attributes instead of classes. This is a distinct separation from classes as it allows for grid management without cluttering the markup and also allows for special characters to be used.
Grid has two attributes:
mui-col inasmuch as a row contains cols.
It is common practice to have the layout change depending on the size of the viewport that is display it.This is not lost on the grids of MUI either.
To allow for layout changes within a grid system, MUI has adapted modifiers that are applied based on preset media query breakpoints.
|xs||(min-width: 30em)||≥ 480px|
|sm||(min-width: 35.5em)||≥ 568px|
|md||(min-width: 48em)||≥ 768px|
|lg||(min-width: 60em)||≥ 960px|
|xl||(min-width: 75em)||≥ 1200px|
The modifiers are applied to the grid on the
mui-col value like:
They can also be combined with other definitions and should be done in such a way that only one measurement is provided for each size. Remember, no size declaration means all sizes and this will be the measure for all sizes until a media query is triggered.
The following example will create a column that is the full width on all screens smaller than the medium, 1/2 width on medium, and 1/4 on extra large.
Grids do not assume you would like spacing of any level between the boxes.This keep elements next to each other and allows for widths to be consistent.This also provides a way for grids to be nested without the need for extra classes.
The grid does not apply spacing between columns by default.This allows for the grid to provide predictable nesting.When you need a set of columns to be equally spaced, add
gutter as a value to the
mui-row attribute.This will add spacing to the left and right of each column.
If you need the rows spaced out, use the
mui-m-tb spacer class.
Columns can also be aligned to the top (default), middle, and bottom by providing the value to the row property.
Flexbox (Flexible Box) module is avialable for IE10+, Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.If you are not familiar with how Flexbox works, CSS-Trick has a great post highlighting all the options.Grid has the ability to become a flexible box for browsers that support it by adding

Any CSS needed for flexible box, outside of the initial set up will be needed on an app level currently. As patterns arise using flexbox, classes will become available in the framework.
