Flexbox - Flex-Order


Advertisements


The flex-order property is used to define the order of the flexbox item.

The following example demonstrates the order property. Here we are creating six colored boxes with the labels one, two, three, four, five, six, arranged in the same order, and we are reordering them in the order one, two, five, six, three, four, using the flex-order property.
