Summary

The column-gap CSS property sets the size of the gap between columns for elements which are specified to display as a multi-column element.

<style type="text/css"></style>
  • {{ Xref_cssinitial() }}: {{ Cssxref("normal") }}
  • Applies to: all multi-column elements
  • {{ Xref_cssinherited() }}: no
  • Media: {{ Xref_cssvisual() }}
  • {{ Xref_csscomputed() }}: absolute length or 'normal'

Syntax

column-gap: length     or
column-gap: normal

where :

normal
Is a keyword indicating to use the browser-defined default spacing between columns. The specification, and most modern browsers follow it, recommends this keyword to be equal to a length of 1em.
length
Is a {{ xref_csslength() }} value defining the size of the gap between columns. It must not be negative, but may be equal to 0.

Examples

.content-box {
  border: 10px solid #000000;
  column-count: 3;
  column-gap: 20px;
}
