The CSS overflow property specifies how to handle the content when it overflows its block level container.
We know that every single element on a page is a rectangular box and the size, positioning and behavior of these boxes are controlled via CSS.
Let's take an example: If you don't set the height of the box, it will grow as large as the content. But if you set a specific height or width of the box and the content inside cannot fit then what will happen. The CSS overflow property is used to overcome this problem. It specifies whether to clip content, render scroll bars, or just display content.
