In this section, we will learn what the min-height property is and how to use it in CSS.
CSS min-height Property Definition and Usage
The `min-height` property is used to set a limit on the minimum height of an element.
Basically using this property, we can set a limit on the minimum height that an element can have.
Note: again, using the min-height property won’t fix the height of an element! This property just put a limit on the minimum height that an element can take! If you want to fix the height of an element, use the height property, then.
CSS min-height Property Syntax
CSS min-height Property Value
The value we set for this property is a number with any relative or absolute units supported in CSS.
For example, if we set the value 10vh for this property, that means the min-height is 10 percent of the viewport’s height.
If you used % value for this property, be aware that the parent element should have a fixed height otherwise, your declaration won’t work. Check the height section to learn more about this.
