CSS grid-auto-columns Property

CSS grid-auto-columns Property

The CSS grid-auto-columns property sets the size for the columns in a grid container.

grid-auto-columns: auto|max-content|min-content|length;

auto (default) – the size of the columns is determined by the size of the container.

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.

Example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
.item1 { grid-area: 1 / 1 / 2 / 2; }
.item2 { grid-area: 1 / 2 / 2 / 3; }
.item3 { grid-area: 1 / 3 / 2 / 4; }
.item4 { grid-area: 2 / 1 / 3 / 2; }
.item5 { grid-area: 2 / 2 / 3 / 3; }
.item6 { grid-area: 2 / 3 / 3 / 4; }

.grid-container {
  display: grid;
  grid-auto-columns: 100px;
  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>
