How to use the CSS grid?

A grid container can be created by declaring the display: grid or display: inline-grid on an element. Grid container contains the items of a grid that are placed inside the rows and columns.

The CSS grid layout module creates a grid-based layout system. Using rows and columns, it designs the webpage without float and positioning. The CSS grid is supported in major browsers such as Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Opera.

Similar to the table, the grid enables a user to align the elements into columns and rows. But compare to tables, the designing of the layout is easier with the CSS grid. There are some of the properties of CSS grid are listed as follows:

  • grid-template-columns: It is used to specify the size of the columns.
  • grid-template-rows: It is used to specify the row size.

  • grid-auto-columns: It is used to specify the automatic size of the columns.
  • grid-auto-flow: It is used to specify how to place auto-placed items and the automatic row size.
