Revision Content

Summary

The column-count CSS property describes the number of columns of the element.

  • {{ Xref_cssinitial() }}: {{ Cssxref("auto") }}
  • Applies to: non-replaced block-level elements (except table elements), table cells, and inline-blocks elements
  • {{ Xref_cssinherited() }}: no
  • Percentages: n/a
  • Media: {{ Xref_cssvisual() }}
  • {{ Xref_csscomputed() }}: specified value

Syntax

column-count: integer     or
column-count: auto

where :

auto
Is a keyword indicating that the number of columns should be determined by other CSS properties, like {{ cssxref("column-width") }}.
integer
Is a strictly positive {{ xref_cssinteger() }} describing the ideal number of columns into which the content of the element will be flowed. If the {{ cssxref("column-width") }} is also set to a non-auto value, it merely indicates the maximum allowed number of columns.

Examples

.content-box {
  border: 10px solid #000000;
  column-count:3;
}
