CSS Responsive Table

Responsive Table

A responsive table will display a horizontal scroll bar if the screen is too small to display the full content:

First Name Last Name Points Points Points Points Points Points Points Points Points Points Points Points
Jill Smith 50 50 50 50 50 50 50 50 50 50 50 50
Eve Jackson 94 94 94 94 94 94 94 94 94 94 94 94
Adam Johnson 67 67 67 67 67 67 67 67 67 67 67 67

Add a container element (like <div>) with overflow-x:auto around the <table> element to make it responsive:


<div style="overflow-x:auto;">

... table content ...

Note: In OS X Lion (on Mac), scrollbars are hidden by default and only shown when being used (even though "overflow:scroll" is set).
