Question 1/15

What is the difference between grid-template-rows and grid-auto-rows?

grid-template-rows is used to explicitly define the size and number of rows in a grid layout, while grid-auto-rows is used to specify the size of rows that are created implicitly, such as when a grid item spans multiple rows.

Example code for grid-template-rows:

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-rows: repeat(3, 1fr);
}

This will create a grid with 3 rows, each taking up an equal amount of space.

Example code for grid-auto-rows:

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-auto-rows: 100px;
}

This will set the height of all implicitly created rows to 100px.

Question 2/15

What is CSS Grid?

CSS Grid is a layout module for CSS that allows developers to create two-dimensional grid-based layouts.

Question 3/15

What is the CSS property used to specify the position of an item within a grid?

CSS grid-area is a property that is used to both specify and name a grid item's location within a grid layout by referencing named grid lines or by specifying the start and end grid line numbers, and to also set the size of the grid item by implicitly creating rows and columns as needed.

Example code:

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: 1fr 1fr;
  grid-template-rows: 1fr 1fr;
  grid-gap: 10px;
  grid-template-areas:
    "header header"
    "sidebar main"
    "footer footer";
}

.header {
  grid-area: header;
}

.sidebar {
  grid-area: sidebar;
}

.main {
  grid-area: main;
}

.footer {
  grid-area: footer;
}

In this example, the grid-template-areas property defines the named areas of the grid layout, and the grid-area property is used to specify the location and size of each grid item by referencing the named areas. This results in a responsive, 3-column layout where the header and footer take up the entire width of the container, and the main content is positioned in the center column with the sidebar taking up the remaining space.

Question 4/15

How do you define a grid container in CSS?

To create a grid container in CSS, you need to set the display property to "grid" on the container element.

Example code:

.container {
  display: grid;
}

Question 5/15

What is the difference between grid-column and grid-area?

grid-column and grid-area are two properties in CSS Grid that are used to position grid items within a grid layout, but they have some important differences.

grid-column is used to explicitly define a grid item's starting and ending column within the grid. For example, grid-column: 1 / 3 would span the item over two columns, starting at the first column and ending at the third.

grid-area, on the other hand, is used to both specify and name a grid item's location within a grid layout, as well as set its size. It takes four values to set the starting and ending rows and columns of a grid item. For example, grid-area: 2 / 1 / 4 / 3 would position the item in the second row, first column, and span two rows and two columns.

So, while both properties are used for positioning, grid-column is more specific and explicit, while grid-area is more flexible and can define the size and position of the grid item using named grid areas.

Question 6/15

What is the purpose of the grid-gap property?

The grid-gap property is used to create space between rows and columns in a grid layout.

Example code:

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);
  grid-gap: 20px;
}

This will create a grid with 3 columns, each taking up an equal amount of space, with a 20px gap between rows and columns.

Question 7/15

What is the purpose of the grid-template-areas property in CSS Grid?

The grid-template-areas property in CSS Grid is used to define the position of grid items within a grid layout using named areas.

Example code:

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);
  grid-template-rows: repeat(3, 1fr);
  grid-template-areas:
    "header header header"
    "main main sidebar"
    "footer footer footer";
}

.header {
  grid-area: header;
}

.main {
  grid-area: main;
}

.sidebar {
  grid-area: sidebar;
}

.footer {
  grid-area: footer;
}

This will create a grid with 3 columns and 3 rows, and the items will be positioned according to the specified named areas.

Question 8/15

What is the purpose of the align-items property in CSS Grid?

The align-items property in CSS Grid is used to align grid items vertically within a grid container.

Example code:

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);
  align-items: center;
}

This will create a grid with 3 columns, each taking up an equal amount of space, and center the grid items vertically within the container.

Question 9/15

What is the difference between a fixed grid item and a flexible grid item?

A fixed grid item has a specified size in terms of width and/or height, while a flexible grid item adjusts its size to fill the available space in the grid container.

Example code for a fixed grid item:

.item {
  grid-row: 1 / 2;
  grid-column: 1 / 2;
  width: 100px;
  height: 50px;
}

This item will occupy one row and one column in the grid, with a fixed width of 100px and height of 50px.

Example code for a flexible grid item:

.item {
  grid-row: 2 / 3;
  grid-column: 2 / 3;
}

This item will occupy one row and one column in the grid, but its size will be determined by the available space in the grid container.

Question 10/15

What is the purpose of the grid-row-gap property in CSS Grid?

The grid-row-gap property in CSS Grid is used to create space between grid rows.

Example code:

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);
  grid-template-rows: repeat(3, 1fr);
  grid-row-gap: 20px;
}

This will create a grid with 3 columns and 3 rows, with a 20px gap between the rows.

Question 11/15

What is a grid item?

A grid item is any child element of a grid container that participates in the grid layout.

Question 12/15

What is the CSS property used to define the size of a grid row?

The grid-template-rows property is used to define the size and number of rows in a grid layout.

Example code:

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-rows: repeat(2, 1fr);
}

This will create a grid with 2 rows, each taking up an equal amount of space.

Question 13/15

What is the purpose of the justify-content property in CSS Grid?

The justify-content property in CSS Grid is used to align grid items horizontally within a grid container.

Example code:

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);
  justify-content: center;
}

This will create a grid with 3 columns, each taking up an equal amount of space, and center the grid items horizontally within the container.

Question 14/15

How do you create a nested grid in CSS?

To create a nested grid in CSS, you can define multiple grid containers within a parent grid container, allowing for more complex layouts.

Example code:

.parent-container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(2, 1fr);
  grid-template-rows: repeat(2, 1fr);
}

.child-container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);
  grid-template-rows: repeat(3, 1fr);
}

This will create a parent container with 2 columns and 2 rows, with each cell containing a child container with 3 columns and 3 rows.

Question 15/15

What is the CSS property used to define the size of a grid column?

The grid-template-columns property is used to define the size and number of columns in a grid layout.

Example code:

.container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);
}

This will create a grid with 3 columns, each taking up an equal amount of space.
