CSS grid-column Property

CSS grid-column Property

The CSS grid-column property defines a grid item’s size and location in a grid layout, and is a shorthand property for the following properties:

Syntax:

grid-column: grid-column-start / grid-column-end;

grid-column-start – defines on which column to start displaying the item.

grid-column-end – defines on which column-line to stop displaying the item, or how many columns to span.

grid-column: 1 / span 2;

is a shorthand for:

grid-column-start: 1;
grid-column-end: span 2;

Example:

Item1 will start on column 1, and span 2 columns:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
.grid-container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: auto auto auto auto;
  grid-gap: 10px;
  background-color: #e9c46a;
  padding: 10px;
}

.grid-container > div {
  background-color: #f4a261;
  text-align: center;
  padding: 20px 0;
  font-size: 30px;
}

.item1 {
  grid-column: 1 / span 2;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>

<div class="grid-container">
  <div class="item1">1</div>
  <div class="item2">2</div>
  <div class="item3">3</div>  
  <div class="item4">4</div>
  <div class="item5">5</div>
  <div class="item6">6</div>
  <div class="item7">7</div>
</div>

</body>
</html>

Output:
