CSS Calculate Height Dynamically

In this tutorial we will show you the solution of CSS calculate height dynamically, as we know css used to style html elements, here we used internal style method to show demo. Here we are calculating height of content by dynamically using css.

We had option of ‘calc’ value in css we need to define when we write height property for any html elements using that we can dynamically calculates our height of content easily.

Step By Step Guide On CSS Calculate Height Dynamically :-

We can implement styles using three types (i.e inline,external or internal) Internal means we have to define our style within <style> tag in head block and inline means we have use style within element definition, external means we defined our css at separate file with .css extension we have to import by <link> tag within head block.

In our program we defined some sample contents of paragraph in <p> tag within <div> tag of ‘content’.

Here we sets height of div to ‘100%’ of height and for para <p> tag content we sets height dynamically by using ‘calc’ so it changes depends on content we defined in html page.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>dynamic height</title>
        <style>
            .content{
                height: 100%;
            }
            p{
                height: calc(100%-10%);
            }
        </style>
    </head>
    <body>
        <div class="content">
            <h1>SAMPLE TEXT</h1>

    </body>
</html>
  1. <!DOCTYPE html> tag which is instruct the web browser about what version of HTML file written in.
  2. The<html> tag is used to indicate the beginning of HTML document.
  3. As above shown <head> tag is containing information about webpage and if you need any external file those links are declared here. <title> tag is used for set the webpage title.
  4. Within <style> tag we defined block of styles. We defined class ‘content’ width to ‘100%’ and we sets <p> tag content height to value ‘calc(100%-10%)’.
  5. So it will calculates 90% of height to para tag contents and if we updated any content it wont bother height of para tag because calculated height common aspect way so it takes their part accurately.
  6. Both <head> and <title> tags having their pair end tag, so we need to close the ending tags respectively. If you’re not closed anyone of ending tag properly that is also affect the webpage result.
  7. <body> tag is beginning of main coding part because it contain coding of entire website blocks and elements described here.
  8. Here we defined <div> tag with class ‘content’ within that we just simply pasted some content from document then it styled by as we seen at point 4.
  9. Both </body>,</html> tags closed respectively. </body> tag indicates the end of body, Then </html> tag indicates the end of HTML document.

Conclusion :-

In conclusion we are able to know how to calculate height dynamically css. When we load our program we can see some paragraph and we calculated their height dynamically so it will not affected even we update some content with them.

This concept is really useful because if we sets some height but if we puts too much content their alignment get collapsed easily when we give it as dynamically it can adjust their layout.

We can also calculate width as dynamically using ‘calc’ in css later will see about them.

I hope this tutorial on CSS calculate height dynamically helps you and the steps and method mentioned above are easy to follow and implement.
