    The align-self CSS property aligns flex items of the current flex line overriding the align-items value. If any of the flex item's cross-axis margin is set to auto, then align-self is ignored.

    • Applies to flex items, including in-flow pseudo-elements
    • Inherited no
    • Media visual

    align-self: auto
    align-self: flex-start
    align-self: flex-end
    align-self: center
    align-self: baseline
    align-self: stretch
    align-self: inherit


    Computes to parent's align-items value or stretch if the element has no parent.
    The cross-start margin edge of the flex item is flushed with the cross-start edge of the line.
    The cross-end margin edge of the flex item is flushed with the cross-end edge of the line.
    The flex item's margin box is centered within the line on the cross-axis. If the cross-size of the item is larger than the flex container, it will overflow equally in both directions.
    All flex items are aligned such that their baselines align. The item with the largest distance between its cross-start margin edge and its baseline is flushed with the cross-start edge of the line.
    Flex items are stretched such as the cross-size of the item's margin box is the same as the line while respecting width and height constraints.

    Formal syntax

    auto | flex-start | flex-end | center | baseline | stretch
