How To Adjust the Content, Padding, Border, and Margins of an HTML Element With CSS

Introduction

In this tutorial, you will learn about the CSS Box Model, a model used to refer to the content, padding, border, and margins of an HTML element. Understanding the CSS Box Model is helpful for adjusting the size of any of these parts of an HTML element and understanding how the size and position of elements is determined. This tutorial will begin by explaining each of the boxes of the CSS Box Model and then move on to a practical exercise on adjusting their values using CSS style rules.

To follow this tutorial, make sure you have set up the necessary files and folders as instructed in a previous tutorial in this series How To Set Up You CSS and HTML Practice Project.

The CSS Box Model

An HTML element can be understood as a series of four overlapping boxes:

  • The content box is the innermost box where the text or image content is placed. By default, its size is frequently set by the size of the content it contains. It is also the only box in the box model whose value is typically not zero by default (if it contains content); in contrast, the padding, border, and margin of an element default to zero for many HTML elements (such as <p><h1>, and <img> elements) unless you specify otherwise. When you set values for the width and height of an element, you are typically changing the width and height of the content box.
  • The padding box is the second overlapping box, which consists of a transparent space that surrounds the content box. By default, the padding of many HTML elements is set to zero. Increasing the size of an element’s padding increases the distance between the content box and the border box.
  • The border box is the third overlapping box that surrounds the padding box. By default, the border value of most HTML elements is set to zero. Increasing the size of an element’s border increases the distance between the padding box and the margin box. Note that the color, thickness, and style of the border can be adjusted.
  • The margin box is the fourth and final overlapping box that consists of transparent space outside of the border of an element. By default, the margin value of some HTML elements is set to zero, though some elements have specified margin values as their default, such as the <h1> through <h6> heading tags. Margins of two different elements are also allowed to overlap sometimes in a behavior called margin collapse. When this happens, the margin size defaults to the size of whichever element’s margin is the largest.

Now that you are familiar with the components of the CSS Box Model, you can practice styling these different boxes to explore how they work together to lay out and style an HTML element. You’ll start by creating a <div> element that contains text content and then adjust the values of each of these boxes to help demonstrate their location in an element.

HTML Tutorial For Beginners

The prospect of learning HTML can seem confusing at first: where to begin, what to learn, the best ways to learn — it can be difficult to get started. In this article, we’ll explore the best ways for learning HTML to assist you on your programming journey.

What is HTML?

Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the standard markup language for documents meant to be displayed in a web browser. Along with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and JavaScript, HTML completes the trio of essential tools used in creating modern web documents.

HTML provides the structure of a webpage, from the header and footer sections to paragraphs of text, videos, and images. CSS allows you to set the visual properties of different HTML elements, like changing colors, setting the order of blocks on the screen, and defining which elements to display. JavaScript automates changes to HTML and CSS, for example, making the font larger in a paragraph when a user clicks a button on the page.

Responsive Footer Design using HTML, CSS & Bootstrap

Hello Readers, welcome to my other blog, today in this blog I’m going to create a Responsive Footer by using HTML & CSS only. Earlier I have shared How to create a Responsive Navigation Menu and now it’s time to create a footer section.

As you can see on the image which is given on the webpage. There are various important topics there like About us, Our services and subscribes, some social media icons, and a contact section for easy connection. I want to tell you that it is fully responsive. Responsive means this program is fit in all screen devices like tablet, small screen laptop, or mobile devices.

Creating a CSS Visual Cheatsheet

The other day one of our students asked about possibility of having a CSS cheatsheet to help to decide on the best suited approach when doing this or that layout.

This evolved into the idea of making a visual CSS cheatsheet with all (most) of the common patterns we see everyday and one of the best possible conceptual implementation for them.

In the end any layout could and should be split into parts/blocks and we see every block separately.

Here is our first take on that and we would be happy to keep extending it to help us all.

Please, send you suggestions in the comments in community or via gitlab for the repeated CSS patterns with your favourite implementation for that so that we will all together make this as useful as it can be.
