Another 100% height issue

  • # April 10, 2013 at 6:36 am

    Hey guys,
    Here’s code example:

    Column one should be same height as Column two. How can I do this?

    Thank you.

    Well, you can fake it:

    Don’t know why the center is off by a few pixels though :(

    I’m not sure why did you added :after, it’ll work without it. Hah I’m not sure also but gradient idea works on my primary webpage as it should. Thanks.

    That after is just some clearfix, without it you won’t see the background on the #wrap (at least on that fiddle). You gave it `height: 100%`, but that only works untill scrolling.

    By the way you can replace the gradient with a regular image if you need better browser support, else make sure to include at least vendor prefixes. :)

    Okay I’ve just noticed that actually it wasn’t working, it was off by few pixels. To fix this I use:

    background: linear-gradient(to right, #65ad3d 160px, #fff 161px);
    background-size: 160px 100%;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;

    In that case (the fiddle) you could have done just `-webkit-linear-gradient(left, red, red);` (or a small red background image), since the blue you see is from the background-color.

    there is a workaround with floats forcing the parent to contain its children

    That makes sense. Thank you.
