Foundation - Flex Grid Column Alignment


Advertisements

Description

The flex grid columns can be aligned along the horizontal or vertical axis in the parent row.

Horizontal Alignment

The columns can be aligned in the same manner as that of the content aligned in paragraph.

  • Using .align-[dir] class in the flex row, you can align the columns according to your wish. By default, the column is aligned to the left.

  • The align-spaced class is used to keep the space between each column.

  • align-justify class aligns the columns to the left and right edge with a space between the column.

Example

The following example demonstrates the use of Horizontal alignment in Foundation −
