CSS3 box-sizing Property


Example

Specify two bordered boxes side by side:

div {
    box-sizing: border-box;
    width: 50%;
    float: left;
}

Try it yourself »

Definition and Usage

The box-sizing property is used to tell the browser what the sizing properties (width and height) should include.

Should they include the border-box or just the content-box which is the default value of the width and height properties.

For example, if you want two bordered boxes side by side, it can be achieved through setting box-sizing to "border-box". This forces the browser to render the box with the specified width and height, and place the border and padding inside the box.

Default value: content-box
Inherited: no
Animatable: no. Read about animatable
Version: CSS3
JavaScript syntax: object.style.boxSizing="border-box" Try it
