Table column & media query

  • # January 5, 2013 at 9:23 am

    Good morning all,
    How would I set the first column of table to certain width let’s say @max-width 30em ? I don’t mind that the company name wraps but the next column has phone number and I don’t want this to wrap.

    I think first-child or first of type would work. On iPad at the mo but think that should do the trick.


    tr td:first-child { max-width: Xxx; }

    Edit: Yes it works.

    @andy_unleash, it didn’t work for me Andy, but after playing around I came up with this:

    tbody > tr > th:first-child { width: 25%; }

    and it works

    @jurotek – were it Max width what you’re using would just change the column title box though, rather than the entire column.
