How to margin div inside other div?

Tags: html,css,styling

Problem :

html body,simple form with table and two divs inside(login and table):

    <div id="container">
            <div class="login">
                <div class="table">
                    <table class="userInput">
                            <td><input type="text" placeholder="Username" id="username"
                            <td><input type="submit" value="submit"></td>

My css:

html,body {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    height: 100%;

table.userInput {
    margin-top: 15%;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;

div#container {
    background: pink;
    height: 100%;

div.login {
    background-color: black;
    margin-top: 15%;
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
    height: 10%;
    width: 10%;
    padding: 10px;

div.table {
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    background-color: grey;

Need my div class="table" after margin-top:15% of table class="userInput" visible with grey background but after offset i can see black color of login div class="login". How to make it grey with margin-top?enter image description here

Solution :

If i understand your question well i suggest you to change




and increase width of <div class='login'> element


Your image change almost everything , please check this fiddle : SOLUTION

Only thing i change is remove margin-top:15%; and replace it with padding-top:15%; so i can add background-color:grey; to table.userInput element.

Looks like in your image. Let me know if it helps :)
