order

The order property is a sub-property of the Flexible Box Layout module.

Flex items are displayed in the same order as they appear in the source document by default. The order property can be used to change this ordering.

Syntax

order: <number>

.flex-item {
  order: 2;
}

Demo

The following demo shows how the default order (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) has been altered by setting the order property to each item.

    It’s important to notice that order only has it’s effect with other ordered items. If any siblings is not ordered, those siblings will be put first in the order they appear in the DOM
