CSS Display

The placement of the components (div, hyperlink, heading, etc.) on the website is determined by the Display property in CSS.

As its name implies, this property controls how the various components of a web page are shown.


This property arranges the div vertically, one after the other. If the width is not specified, the div under block property will take up the width of the container. The height and width of the div can be modified using the block property.

Examples of block-level elements:

  • <div>
  • <h1> - <h6>
  • <p>
  • <form>
  • <header>
  • <footer>
  • <section>




Anchor tags' is one of the default properties. This is used to position the div inline, or horizontally. The user-defined height and width are ignored by the inline display attribute.

Examples of inline elements:

  • <span>
  • <a>
  • <img>




This feature makes use of both the block and inline attributes that were previously stated. Therefore, this property aligns the div inline, but it differs in that it allows you to change the block's height and width. In essence, this will align the div both inline and block style.


The div or container that uses this property is hidden by this property. It will make working evident if you use it on one of the divs.


The display property is not animatable in CSS. If you try to animate it using CSS transitions or animations, the transition/animation will not work and the element will simply appear or disappear without any smooth transition. However, you can use other properties like opacity or visibility to achieve similar effects. For example, you can fade an element in or out by animating the opacity property.

To create a sticky header using the display property, you would set the position property to fixed and the top property to 0. Here's an example code snippet:

header {
  position: fixed;
  top: 0;
  width: 100%;

This will make the header element stick to the top of the viewport even when the user scrolls down the page. Note that you might also need to adjust the z-index property to ensure that the header appears above other content on the page.

The display: grid property in CSS is used to create a grid container that can be used to layout child elements in rows and columns. It allows for a more flexible and advanced way of creating layouts compared to traditional methods such as using floats or positioning. With display: grid, you can define the size and position of each grid item, as well as the gaps between them. This makes it easier to create responsive layouts that adapt to different screen sizes and devices. Additionally, you can use media queries to change the grid layout based on the viewport size.
