Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Flexbox, part of Introduction to CSS.
- [Instructor] We've talked about floats already…and for many years, floats were really the only style option…available for laying out web pages.…Well, that is if you don't consider hacking tables…as a layout option.…Well, with CSS3 came Flexbox, officially dubbed the…Flexible Box Layout module.…And this allows us a tremendous amount of control…of elements relative to their parents.…It's a one dimensional layout model that lets…us arrange elements on the page in a way that ensures…those elements will behave predictably on a different…screen size or on different devices.…
It's a big improvement over the block model…that floats use.…So, the Flex layout is based on Flex flow directions.…Basically, items will be laid out following either…the main axis which originates at main start and…terminates at main end or the cross axis from…cross start to cross end.…Using Flexbox goes a little something like this.…First, you're going to define a parent element as…the flex container.…And this in turn, defines any direct child elements…
