    Controlling a Column Width

    Thanks for this, I found adding the width directly to the cell class caused cell height to play up sometimes though. Is there any way of telling a cell to collapse around an element with a fixed width inside it or does this sort of thing not exist? thanks

    Controlling a Column Width

    Hi there, I have been trying set a width of the last column in a table to 200px. <div class="table"> <div class="table-row"> <div class="table-cell">data</div> <div class="table-cell">data</div> <div class="table-cell"><span>data</span></div> </div> </div> .table{display: table;} .table-row{display: table-row;} .table-cell{display: table-cell;} .table-cell span{width: 200px;} Setting .table-cell:last-child to 200px causes strange behaviour with the height of the cells (this matters as a certain row is highlighted). Setting a width on the span solves the cell height issue, but the table still distributes the available space to each column evenly, so the last column is its natural width, plus 200px making it pretty wide. Is there a way to stop this last column filling out and remaining at 200px? Thanks.

    Showing an item dependent on the focus of another

    I did not realise that. Sorted. Thank you dsonesuk!
  5. Hi, Can you use 'a' and 'a :focus' as conditional to hide/show another element? The following doesn't seem to work. Is it likely to with some re-working, or is this a no-no? a + span{display: none;} a:focus + span{display: block;} <a>Anchor</a><span><input /></span> Thanks

    Backgrounds on Overflows

    I was wondering if there was a CSS property and value that could be given to containing divs to keep them expanding with the content that I didn't know about. The problem I am experiencing is when a div has overflow-x set to visible, the overflowing content is visible, but the background cuts off at the point where you start scrolling. display:inline-block; seemed to solve it when given to the container, but then caused errors for the table it contained which stayed collapsed at its minimum width as opposed to filling the space when div was expanded (the div in question is a re-sizeable draggable pane). Is there a way of solving this I am unaware of? Help much appreciated.

    What control can you have over html scrollbars?

    Thanks for the pointers, much appreciated
  8. I was wondering whether it was possible to set a horizontal scrollbar to automatically scroll the furthest right upon opening, or whether this is something that has to be manipulated by jquery?

    Height Transition of a List

    This is helpful and makes sense, thanks also for sharing the link!

    Height Transition of a List

    li{height: 48px; overflow: hidden; -webkit-transition: 0.3s; transition: 0.3s; -moz-transition: 0.3s; -ms-transition: 0.3s; -o-transition: 0.3s;} li.tree-is-expanded{height: 100%;} This would essentially hide the nested ul until the class '.tree-is-expanded' is added. But the transition jumps as opposed to shows the transition. I have also tried targeting the nested ul but this doesn't work either: li ul{height: 48px; overflow: hidden; -webkit-transition: 0.3s; transition: 0.3s; -moz-transition: 0.3s; -ms-transition: 0.3s; -o-transition: 0.3s;} li.tree-is-expanded ul{height: 100%;} Thanks

    Height Transition of a List

    Hi there, I am working on a tree structure using lists. When you click on a button in a list item, it opens a sublist up. When a sub-list is opened, the tree below moves down, and up if closed. It does this with a jolt, and am I hoping there is a way to animate this smoothly? The problem I am having is that all tutorials I have found use a hard-coded max-height to animate from and to. I cannot do this as the list has to be able to be any size. Also the structure is dynamically generated which also makes it quite hard to append classes to certain points. Is there a way to do achieve a smooth height transition in this scenario? Thanks

    Em 7 Rem Confusion

    and setting that in px would allow the tools to manipulate the base font size?

    Em 7 Rem Confusion

    That would explain why that wasn't working then.

    Em 7 Rem Confusion

    Ok Ingolme, I think I understand. What I had been doing was the following, in the hope that by increasing the body font size would lead to all the values increasing proportionately (that is the point of rem and em, right?). But it wasn''t working... body{font-size: 16px;} button{font-size: 0.825rem; padding: 1em 1.2em;} What would I need to do to achieve this? Thanks

    Em 7 Rem Confusion

    Hi there, I just need something clearing up: I thought giving a font a rem made it relative to the font size set on the body. Then, giving that text's container an em would make it resize based on the contained text's size. However the text only appears to resize when the body font size is adjusted when set with an em. Am I doing this the wrong way round, or worse missing the point of em's and rem's altogether? Help appreciated here :)
