Grid Justify Items

Using Justify Items in Advanced Display Grids

In this tutorial, we’re going to discuss how to use the justify-items property for your advanced display grids in Breakdance. This CSS property is crucial for aligning items inside their grid areas along the inline (horizontal) axis.

Aligning Items with Justify Items

Understanding Justify Items

The justify-items property in a grid layout controls the alignment of all items within their grid areas along the inline axis. This axis runs horizontally in a left-to-right direction in most writing systems. By adjusting this property, you can align items to the start, end, center, or stretch them across their grid area.

Steps to Use Justify Items

  1. Select the grid container in your Breakdance project where you want to apply the justify-items property.
  2. Choose an alignment option for the justify-items property:
    • start: Aligns items to the start of the grid area.
    • end: Aligns items to the end of the grid area.
    • center: Centers items within the grid area.
    • stretch: Stretches items to fill the grid area (default behavior).
  3. Apply the chosen option to your grid container. You will immediately see the items inside of the grid adjust according to the selected alignment.

Additional Notes

The justify-items property is a powerful tool in the CSS Grid Layout module, offering a simple yet effective way to control the horizontal alignment of items within their grid areas. Remember, the default value is stretch, which makes items fill the entire width of the grid area. Experimenting with different values can lead to more dynamic and responsive designs that enhance the user experience on your website.
