CSS Layout - The display Visibility


The display property sets how an element should be displayed, and the visibility property specifies whether an element should be visible or hidden.


The display Property

The display property indicates if/how a component is displayed.

Every HTML component has a default display esteem contingent upon what type of component it is. The default display an incentive for most components is block or inline.

Click to demonstrate panel

This board contains a <div> component, which is covered up of course (display: none).

It is styled with CSS, and we use JavaScript to demonstrate it (change it to (display: block).


Block-level Elements

A square dimension component dependably begins another line and takes up the full width accessible .

The display property decides how that rectangular box behaves

The <div> component is a square dimension element.

Examples of square dimension elements:

  • <div>
  • <h1> - <h6>
  • <p>
  • <form>
  • <header>
  • <footer>
  • <section>

Setting the presentation property of a component just changes how the component is display n, not what sort of component it is. Along these lines, an inline component with display:block isn't permitted to have other square components inside it.


Inline Elements

You can change inline and block elements, and vice versa, to make the page appear to be combined in a specific way and still follow web standards.

li {display:inline;}

Note: Change the display type of an element to see how it is displayed and what kind of element it is. For example: An inline element set to display: block is not allowed to have nested block elements inside it.

Examples of inline elements:

  • <span>
  • <a>
  • <img>

Display: none;

display:none shrouds a component, so it doesn't consume up any room. The component will be covered up, and the page will be display n as though the component isn't there.


Override The Default Display Value

Changing an inline component to a square component, or the other way around, can be valuable for making the page look a particular way, and still pursue the web standards.

A basic model is making inline <li> components for level menus:

Example

li {
    display : inline;
}

The following model display cases <span> components as square elements:

Example

range {
    display : block;
}
Try it yourself »

Hide an Element - display:none or visibility:hidden?

You can change inline and block elements, and vice versa, to make the page appear to be combined in a specific way and still follow web standards.

The following example displays a list item as an inline element:

Example

li {display:inline;}
Try it yourself »

The following example uses the span element as a block element:

Example

span {display:block;}

Note: Change the display type of an element to see how it is displayed and what kind of element it is. For example: An inline element set to display: block is not allowed to have nested block elements inside it.
