Flex-grow: Using precise measurements to build a page?

When building a page that uses precise measurements, is it safe to say that the flex grow property doesn't fit into this work flow... or does it still have a purpose?

1 Answer

Hi Eduardo Vargas,

From what I've read flex would still have a place in this scenario. The main container will have a precise measurement, but the items inside that container would use flex to grow based on how the flex values are set. The Mozilla developer site has a great article with some examples which can be found here MDM Flex-Grow article.

I hope this helps out.
