Cannot set height of link to height of parent. flexbox

Hi guys!

Im working on this page and am almost done. http://hbosafe.wpengine.com/prijzen-opleidingen/

To make the tables repsonsive I made use of flexbox and dropped the <table> Everything works awesome, however when I narrow down the sreen to about 900 pixels, you will see the 'inschrijven' button in the last cell of each row with white space above and below them when the row get's higher.

I need the link to get full height, and still center, I can't get both together. I only achieved the 100% when the text is not vertically centered.

any clue?

Hey, I think I have a solution for you, not certain if it is the best one. Let me know if it works for you. I made the link display: flex, justify content and align-items: center then height: 100% seems to behave how you want.

.btn--full-width {
    display: flex;
    align-items: center;
    justify-content: center;
    height: 100%;
    width: 100%;

Thanks! works great. Why did you add the width: 100%? It can be left out if you asked me.

Thanks Jeremiah!

width:100% was already there, because I just edited the .btn--full-width class instead of creating a new one. Glad it works : )

Thanks again!
