Learn how to create a simple wide-screen layout for a responsive form.
- [Narrator] We already created a layout for this form…that works well for the narrowest screen widths.…Now we're going to use media queries…to change the layout for wider screens.…Here's what our layout looks like at 400 pixels wide.…If I make the browser window wider,…I can see that the input fields get very long.…They don't need to be that long…so at some point I can add a media query…and change the layout so that the labels are to the left…of the input fields instead of above them.…To determine where I should make that media query go,…I figure out where there's a good point…at which it looks like there's enough space to do that.…
So I'm going to make the browser window wider…until I feel like maybe at about this point…there's enough space to add the…input fields next to the labels instead of below them.…To figure out what width I need…to put my media query at, the best way…to do that is to have a tool like…MQtest.io open in a separate tab of the same window.…This will tell me exactly how wide…the window is at this point in time.…
