Join Jen Kramer for an in-depth discussion in this video Vertical grids, part of Learning Foundation 6.
- [Instructor] Vertical grids are a bit misleading…in their name.…It sounds like you could lay out a webpage…in a series of columns,…but that's not quite true.…What the vertical grid means is that you can…have a cell that scrolls independently…of other elements on the webpage.…By combining this with a grid frame,…the cell will fill the full height…of the browser window.…And if it's tall enough,…you'll wind up getting a scroll bar.…This type of layout is most useful…in some kinds of web applications.…Maybe those that are mobile based in particular,…where you want to have the layout…to never exceed the height of the browser window.…
You can scroll the elements individually…within that same browser window.…So as you see here this is my starting file,…it's called grid-y.html.…It's located inside of your exercise files folder…for this particular video.…Go on ahead and copy that into your working folder,…and as you see here to start with this is pretty simple.…We have two cells, one row,…and it just scrolls up and down like a regular old webpage.…
