CSS grid-template-columns

CSS grid-template-columns

The CSS grid-template-columns property defines the number (and the widths) of columns in a grid layout.

Syntax:

grid-template-columns: none|auto|max-content|min-content|length;

none (default) – columns are created if needed.

auto – the size of the columns is determined by the size of the container and by the size of the content of the items in the column.

max-content – the size of each column depends on the largest item in the column.

min-content – the size of each column depends on the smallest item in the column.

length – sets the size of the columns, by using a legal length value.

Example1:

<!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;
}
</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 class="item8">8</div>
</div>
