fit-content

The fit-content behaves as fit-content(stretch). In practice this means that the box will use the available space, but never more than max-content.

When used as laid out box size for width, height, min-width, min-height, max-width and max-height the maximum and minimum sizes refer to the content size.

The CSS Sizing specification also defines the fit-content() function. This page details the keyword.

Syntax

width: fit-content
block-size: fit-content

Examples

  <div class="item">Item with more text in it.</div>
  <div class="item">Item with more text in it, hopefully we have added enough text so the text will start to wrap.</div>
</div>

.container {
  border: 2px solid #ccc;
  padding: 10px;
