Lesson Info

Min-height vs. Height

Alright. This video has two parts. The main part is learning what min height is instead of height. Okay then we're gonna do some just some housekeeping. We're going to add some structure to our page. We'll add a container and float in the middle and header and main. And these cards down the bottom here, it's stuff you've done before, but we need to do it before we move on to the next video. So let's learn what min height is in code. All right, first up, we need something to give some height or min height too. So first of all, let's create a div called container. Hit space. I had a return on your keyboard. DiV class equals container. We're gonna leave. I'll put a return in just to separate it out over here. Let's style it remember full stop in front of it and container, curly braces. And then we'll do we'll give it a width first. Okay, We'll do a width of we'll do the same as before. 10 24 pixels. Don't forget the pixels. And don't forget semi colon. Let's give it a background color, ba...

ckground color. And I'm gonna pick anything. Okay? I'm not going to use the named ones. I'm gonna do variations of green. So I'm going to start with dark green to start with. Okay, make sure the semicolon goes on the end. Let's check it out. It's not gonna be able to be visible because we haven't given it a height yet, but let's just kick this into gear. Wake up on my other screen come over here buddy. Cool. So we need to give it a height and this is where min height comes in because if we give it a regular height. Okay. Height. Okay. And I say I want it to be let's say I'm just gonna say 300 pixels because it makes my example a little easier to have a look. He but we ran into this problem before if we start adding stuff to this, I add a P tag and I put in some lots of content. We've got lots of got a big long article or blog post. So I want to put in 500 words which is not massive. Right, Okay. Hit save. Jump into here now you can see it spills out. Okay? So instead of using our height, it's very simple. We just use a minimum height. So we're just saying the minimum you can go is 300 but you can go any size bigger than that if the content needs it. So we'll save that. Let's preview it. Here you go. So it says be a 300 unless you need more. So it'll go bigger whenever you're thinking height now, pretty much for everything. Think min height and I want to center it. Okay, pause it here to open the centering. Remember centering, I want you to pause and see if you can do it go. All right, you're back remember what it was. It was margin lift Marden margin left and what was it? It was auto. You got it? Nice work and then margin right margin. Right. What? Alright let's check it out. It's in the center. Alright. So we're gonna throw in some other chunks now. Let's look at the mock up. Okay. It's in your files and exercise files. Project to there's one in there called, what's it called mock up example. So look at the homepage first. You can open that up. I'm using the X. T. File just because it's interactive but same thing. So we're going to have a container. Okay we are going to have a header at the top. We're gonna have a main section. Okay then we're gonna add some cards now. So the main is going to be this title, this text here. Then separately we're going to do these three little guys here. There could be some people refer to them as tiles or cards. We're gonna refer to them as cards but tiles doesn't matter. Little boxes, you can call them what you want. Let's put those in. We'll discuss this later on in the course. Alright, so let's throw in those bits. I'm gonna turn my rapping back on toggle. Word wrap which I was clicking the wrong one. I was clicked over here so it's word wrapping on CSS which is separate now it does it here and I want to get rid of that giant bit of tag was just there as an example. So what do we need? We need a hitter. Cool. Pray to find one lovely. What else do we need? We need a main part mean And then we need, do we even have a photo on this one? Hmm There's no footer. You don't have to have a footer. I didn't design this one with one so we've not got one. What I'd like to do is put in three cards. So it's gonna be outside of this main. Okay. Just because because I wanted to kind of not be part of this main content. I wanted to be on all pages. There you go. Okay, so it's on this other page is a separate little box. So we're gonna, there's no such thing as a predefined. Like, like the container, there's no name for cards. We have to give it, I think calling cards plural. They're returning and not going to do this. We do the separate three little cards in a second was going to do like a box that they're all going to go into. So we're going to design like a, I've got a wrapper tag that goes around all of these guys. Okay, so main. This one here and then we're gonna put the little individual bits inside. Same with the header, we've made this kind of like big chunky head at the top inside of it's going to go the logo inside of it is going to be these little tags. Sorry little buttons. Alright, we got cards. Let's style cards. So we got a container, we've got hitter, we're going to have a background color of what we're going to put in versions of that green. So background color is going to go lighter and lighter as they go along. Cool. I'm gonna put in a min height, min height Now can you see this? It's not working. It's not pre filling it out, fuels ever starts doing that. It's because we've forgotten to close out that property at the top there. Now if we start typing she's back it's gonna be 100 pixels until I want to do to it. Now we're going to check it before we go to further along. What did I do? I didn't hit save all. There they are there. So I've got a container which is the dark green, there's a header in it there. Okay, let's have a little look now the colors are here just for your kind of viewing pleasure. So you can see where things are style the main and cheat. This one here is gonna be even later. Nice and this one here has a height of and we do the same thing for the cats. Getting really lazy. Now awesome. This one's called dot cards. This one here is going to be even later again, save it. Let's see what we got. Alright, so there's a container hiding in the background. Okay, it's kind of covered now then there's a header. Then there's a main and then there's my cards and the cards are too big, are they? I might have to change that in a sec. That's alright. Alright. So that gives us our kind of basic structure in the next video, we're going to look at adding our cards in and kind of working with something called flex box. Alright. I'll see you there.
