Simple CSS alignment problem.

Having trouble getting these colored boxes to all appear on the same line side by side without any spacing between.

Rather than just delete the code and keep on training I figured I would post here and see if anyone could turn this into a teachable moment.

Thanks.

here is how I have done it:

in your HTML, put a class of float to all divs:

div id="n1" class="float">test</div>

in the CSS, apply a float left to the class : .float { float:left; }

all Divs are now on the same line without any spacing between,

Grant:

You could try something like:

CodeSnippet.html
        <div id="main">
            <div id="n1">test</div>
            <div id="n2">test</div>
            <div id="n3">test</div>
            <div id="n4">test</div>
            <div id="n5">test</div>
        </div>
CodeForMainID.css
#main {
    display: flex;
    align-items: center;
}

Not sure that is exactly what you were looking for, but they lined up in your jsFiddle page when I used it.

Happy coding,

Ken

Thanks Ken, I have not worked with "display: flex" yet. I look forward to it.

or you can also set all the divs as inline-block

#n1, #n2, #n3, #n4, #n5 {
    display:inline-block;
}
