Problem :

This question already has an answer here:

I have something like the following

 <div class='texts-container'>
               <div class='texts-title'>Text title</div>
               <div class='texts'><p>some texts here. Dynamically generate.</p></div>


width: 650px;
height: 120px;
margin: 18px;

   float: left;
   padding: 10px;
   background-color: #ECECEC;
   height: 80px;
   width: 130px;
   line-height: 80px;
   text-align: center;
   vertical-align: middle;

   background-color: #E2E2E2;
   float: left;
   padding: 5px;
   height: 90px;
   width: 430px;

My question is how to make my .texts div height automatically adjust if I have lots of texts in that div.

I don't want to set the height of the text div very high as most of my contents are short. However, I do want to adjust the height automatically when I have large amount of contents. Can anyone give me a hint? Thanks!

Solution :

Set a min-height, but not a height, like this:
