In this section, we will learn what the grid-column-end property is and how to use it in CSS.
CSS grid-column-end Property Definition and Usage
After we’ve created our CSS grid, by default, grid-items will be automatically positioned on each cell of that grid. But this is the default behavior and we can decide where on the grid we want each grid-item to be positioned.
Now, using the `grid-column-end` property, we can declare the line number or line name that the right edge of the target item should be placed on.
Also, there’s another property named `grid-column-start` which declares the line number or line name that the left edge of the target item should be placed on.
Note: These two elements usually come together.
CSS grid-column-end Property Syntax
grid-column-end: auto|span n|column-line-name| column-line-number;
CSS grid-column-end Property Value
- column-line-number: Using this value, we can determine what line number the right edge of the target item should be placed on.
- column-line-name: this value is actually the name of the grid’s line we want the right edge of the target item be placed on.
Also, there’s a keyword named “span” which can be used as the value of this property. Here’s the syntax:
grid-column-end: span number-of-tracks;
- span: this is the keyword and that means a number of tracks.
- Number-of-track: this is the number of tracks we want the grid-item to expand on.
Example= grid-column-end: span 3; // means expand the target item on 3 columns.
Note: the value “auto” is the default value. This means the item will span on one column.
