Show HTML text if window width is too small with CSS

Tags: html,css

Problem :

I want to hide my HTML table and show the following text: "There's not enough space to show table.", if the window width is smaller than 500px. Anybody know how to do that?


  <table class="MyClass">
    <caption>Random text</caption>


@media screen and (max-width: 500px){
 .MyClass { 

Solution :

You can try this


@media (max-width: 500px) {
    section table {
        display: none;

    section:after {
        content: "There is not enough space to show table";

Or you can do this with JS

$(window).resize(function() {
    var width = $(window).width();
    if (width < 500) {
       $('.MyClass').css('display', 'none');
       $('.info').css('display', 'block');          
    } else {
      $('.MyClass').css('display', 'block');
       $('.info').css('display', 'none');
