CSS Flexbox Layout Examples

CSS Flexbox Layout Examples

Welcome back!

In this session, we'll explore practical CSS Flexbox layout examples to help you master this powerful layout system.

Justifying Content

Flexbox allows you to justify the content of your containers horizontally using the justify-content property.

.container {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: flex-start; /* start | end | center | space-around | space-between */
}

Aligning Items

Similarly, you can align the items vertically using the align-items property.

.container {
  display: flex;
  align-items: flex-start; /* start | end | center | baseline | stretch */
}

Flex Direction

Flexbox provides two main flex directions: row and column. You can switch between them using the flex-direction property.

.container {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: row; /* row | column */
}

Wrap Behaviour

When the content exceeds the container's width, Flexbox offers wrap behaviour options. Use flex-wrap: nowrap to keep items in a single line or flex-wrap: wrap to wrap them.

.container {
  display: flex;
  flex-wrap: nowrap; /* nowrap | wrap */
}

Flexbox Children

Each child element within a Flexbox container is called a Flexbox child. You can control the size and behaviour of these children using various flex properties.

Flexbox Parent

The parent element of a Flexbox layout is called the Flexbox parent. It defines the overall layout and properties.

Flexbox Alignment

Flexbox provides several alignment options for both the main axis (justify-content) and the cross axis (align-items).

.container {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
  align-items: center;
}

Flexbox Orders

You can control the order of Flexbox children using the order property. This allows you to rearrange the visual order of elements.

.item1 {
  order: 2;
}
.item2 {
  order: 1;
}
.item3 {
  order: 3;
}

Flexbox Margins

Flexbox provides options for margins and padding around Flexbox children. Use margin and padding properties to control the spacing.

.item {
  margin: 10px;
  padding: 5px;
}

Flexbox and Grids

Flexbox and CSS Grid are two different layout systems. Flexbox is more suitable for one-dimensional layouts, while Grid is better for two-dimensional layouts.

Flexible vs Fixed Layouts

Flexbox allows you to create flexible layouts that adapt to different screen sizes. In contrast, fixed layouts have fixed dimensions and don't respond to changes.

Mixing Flexbox and Floats

Flexbox can be mixed with other layout methods like floats. However, it's generally recommended to use Flexbox for more modern and flexible layouts.

Nesting Flexbox Containers

You can nest Flexbox containers to create complex layouts. This allows you to combine different layout directions and properties.

.parent {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: row;
}

.child {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
}

Real-World Flexbox Examples

Flexbox is used in numerous real-world applications, including navigation menus, image galleries, and responsive layouts. Explore examples to see its versatility.
