device-height

Deprecated
This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

The device-height CSS media feature can be used to test the height of an output device's rendering surface.

Syntax

The device-height feature is specified as a <length> value. It is a range feature, meaning that you can also use the prefixed min-device-height and max-device-height variants to query minimum and maximum values, respectively.

Example

This HTML applies a special stylesheet for devices that are shorter than 800 pixels.

<link rel="stylesheet" media="screen and (max-device-height: 799px)" href="http://foo.bar.com/short-styles.css" />
