The width CSS media feature can be used to test the width of the viewport (or the page box, for paged media).

Syntax

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

Example

HTML

<div>Watch this element as you resize your viewport's width.</div>

CSS

/* Exact width */
@media (width: 360px) {
  div {
    color: red;
  }
}

/* Minimum width */
@media (min-width: 35rem) {
  div {
    background: yellow;
  }
}

/* Maximum width */
@media (max-width: 50rem) {
  div {
    border: 2px solid blue;
  }
}
