Make container shrink-to-fit child elements as they wrap in HTML

We can easily make container shrink-to-fit child elements as they wrap. First, we will set the flex container flexible −

display: flex; 

We will set the flex items to wrap −

flex-wrap: wrap; 

Set the text center aligned using the text-align property −

text-align: center; 

The list-style-type property is set to None to display no marker −

list-style-type: none;


Let us now see the complete example −

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <title>Flex Example</title> <head> <style> ul { display: flex; flex-wrap: wrap; margin: 0; padding: 0; border: 2px solid red; } li { border: 2px solid orange; margin: 10px; padding: 10px; width: 200px; text-align: center; list-style-type: none; } </style> </head> <body> <div id="container"> <ul> <li>A</li> <li>B</li> <li>C</li> <li>D</li> <li>E</li> <li>F</li> <li>G</li> <li>H</li> </ul> </div> </body> </html>
