HTML <th> colspan Attribute

HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The colspan attribute of the <th> element is used to set the number of columns a header cell should span.

Following is the syntax −

<th colspan="num">

Above, num is the count of columns a header cell should span.

Let us now see an example to implement the colspan attribute of the <th> element −

Example

 Live Demo

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
table, th, td {
   border: 2px solid green;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<h2>Product Expenses</h2>
<table>
   <tr>
      <th colspan="2">Expenses</th>
   </tr>
   <tr>
      <td>Product Development</td>
      <td>500000</td>
   </tr>
   <tr>
      <td>Marketing</td>
      <td>500000</td>
   </tr>
   <tr>
      <td>Services</td>
      <td>100000</td>
   </tr>
   <tr>
      <td>Support</td>
      <td>100000</td>
   </tr>
   <tr>
      <td>Maintenance</td>
      <td>100000</td>
   </tr>
   <tr>
      <td colspan="2">Total Budget = INR 1300000</td>
   </tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Output

In the above example, we have set the column count to span the header cell −

<th colspan="2">Expenses</th>

The count is 2, therefore two columns will span the header cell.
