Example text

I am now going to add my first media query, and make some changes to the layout once the browser window reaches 700 pixels wide. picturebox { -ms-grid-row:5; -ms-grid-column: 8; -ms-grid-column-span:11; 51 } } For this wider layout, I have redefined my grid to have more columns and an additional row. My first content area remains at full-width at the top of the layout. However, I have now split the other content into three columns, making one of them span across two rows, the other two becoming half–height, and dropping the image in below them spanning both areas.

Being able to wrap rows and flex items to fit the available space means that with very little effort simple designs can be responsive. Once you start to mix flexbox with media queries you can achieve far more complex layouts. Being able to display items independently of source order makes creating a different arrangement of elements for different screen sizes possible. You can also easily switch flex-direction as shown in the example below. We can display our navigation as a column until we get to a width of 700 pixels, at which point we switch to displaying it as a row.

I can now use it for a nice picture of a cat and a quote – unrelated to the content flowing around it. 62 The content ignores the central column as it is no longer a container for that content flow. Browser Tips We are looking at the sharp end of emerging CSS modules here, with support for regions only appearing in experimental form in WebKit browsers. This isn’t a technique you’re likely to be able to use in production yet. I think the possibilities for CSS regions 63 are really exciting however, and if we as developers test and request support for a module, it is far more likely to become included in browsers.
