The device-height CSS @media media feature can be used to apply styles based on the height of the rendering surface of the output device.

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" />
