Angular Flex-Layout: Flexbox and Grid Layout for Angular Component

CSS Flexbox and CSS Grid are very powerful layout functions. These are already supported by all modern browsers except for IE 11. Unlike properties for styling (for examplecolor and border), these are properties for building a layout structure. In other words, it is not used to beautify the surface of HTML elements but is used to create a foundation of application UI in cooperation with the hierarchical structure of HTML elements.

In Angular, it is common for a view of a component to be divided into template HTML and stylesheet CSS. Since the layout using Flexbox or Grid is closely related to the structure of HTML, it is not convenient that the layout settings are written in an external CSS file. So, it is a clever choice to define Flexbox and Grid settings in template HTML.

Does it mean we should use inline style attributes? No!
This article explains how to use the Angular Flex-Layout module to build flexbox layout in Angular templates and its hidden features.

CSS Layout Grid

One of the most challenging aspects of building webpages is managing layout. HTML and CSS offer several different methods to control layout. The layout options include using normal flow, floats, multi-column layout, flexbox, and CSS Grid. To allow for more complex layouts, CSS Grid aims to be a major step forward by giving developers more control over layout and arrangement of elements on a web page.

There are several really good and helpful resources available to learn CSS Grid. Here’s a quick rundown of resources that helped me learning CSS Grid.

Setting up the Grid

CSS Grid works by creating a grid container using the display: grid property. The immediate children of the grid container are called grid items.

An essential feature of using CSS Grid is setting up the columns and rows to be used in the grid. This is done with the grid-template-columns and grid-template-rows properties. There are many different ways to set up a grid.

Let’s say we want a grid with five columns. There’s a few ways to set this up. To build columns, we’ll use the grid-template-columns property. To create five columns it’s necessary to add five values, on for each column.

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: 20rem 100px auto 30% 25em;

As shown in the code sample, it’s possible to add sizes using different units of measurement, including pxemrem%, and auto. CSS Grid also introduces a new unit, fr, which means fractional unit. This is used by assigning size to the grid based on values entered and dividing up the remaining space based on a division of fractional units.

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: 15rem 1fr 2fr;

In the example above, 15rem is assigned and the remaining space is divided between the two columns, the 2nd column getting 1fr out of 3 units and the last column getting 2fr out of 3 units.

The same concepts for columns work for rows. Adding the grid-template-rows property allows for the explicit creation of grid rows.

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: 15rem 1fr 2fr;
  grid-template-rows: 20rem 400px;

This addition establishes two explicit rows in the grid. The row sizes are defined by units. This code creates a grid that is 3 columns by 2 rows and creates 6 total grid cells. Now it’s time for content to flow into the grid.

<div class="container">
  <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit. Dolor, totam.</p>
  <img src="sun.jpg" alt="Sun" />
  <h4>Image subtitle</h4>
  <p>Velit dolor unde explicabo illum ipsa temporibus, hic sed error.</p>
  <div>Additional content</div>

The HTML above includes a <div class="container"> that is used as a grid container. The 6 elements that are the immediate children of the div are the grid items. Since there are only 6 items, each one will fit into the 6 grid cells defined in the CSS code above. If another grid item is added, however, this will now be a total of 7 children element. In this case, CSS Grid will automatically create a new row to include this element. The new row constitutes what is known as the implicit grid - automatically added to the grid, although not explicitly defined.

There are certain situations where a developer does not know exactly how many rows may be needed for a grid — in the case of repeating or auto-generated content, for example. In these situations, it’s possible to make use of the grid-auto-columns and the grid-auto-rows properties. These properties set a pre-determined size for implicitly created columns and rows.

How To Take The Headache Out Of flexbox and Support Older browsers like IE in production

Flexbox offers great advantages and with its modern syntax it can speed up a developer’s workflow but it has a few hangups. Its support for older browsers including IE is below 70% of its Global usage, meaning your grids may not show up properly or at all on older devices. Modern browsers don’t have these same issues (chrome, firefox) however to keep this nightmare from happening on older devices and browsers, let’s go over a few tips to avoid broken grids on older devices.

Build your own grid using Percentages

Due to the nature of floats, and display inline being supported early in IE, your grid will always be showing up properly. Use traditional basic CSS and Flexbox will not become a roadblock for your users.

.box {
  width: 100%;
  margin: auto;
  overflow: hidden;
div[class^="grid_"] {
  display: inline;
  float: left;
.grid_one {
  width: 6.333333333333332%;
.grid_two {
  width: 14.666666666666666%;
.grid_three {
  width: 23%;
.grid_four {
  width: 31.33333333333333%;
.grid_five {
  width: 39.666666666666664%;
.grid_six {
  width: 48%;
.grid_seven {
  width: 56.333333333333336%;
.grid_eight {
  width: 64.66666666666666%;
.grid_nine {
  width: 73%;
.grid_ten {
  width: 81.33333333333333%;
.grid_eleven {
  width: 89.66666666666666%;
.grid_twelve {
  width: 98%;

You can then wrap your grid column divs within the main div to get a full one to twelve column grid.

<div class="box">
  <div class="grid_one">
