How to place object in relation to window browser in css/html?


Tags: html,css

Problem :

How do I place an object in css to move in relation to the size of the window browser?

I tried the following types of positioning: Fixed, Absolute, and Relative. The problem I have with these are that when ever I change the size of the window browser, it stays in the same exact spot and does not move with the browser size.

Thanks in advance for the help!



Solution :

You must be defining top, bottom, left, right using px, so you need to use % instead

Demo

<div class="hello">
  Whatever
<div>

.hello {
   position: absolute;
   top: 50%;
   left: 50%;
}

Make sure if you are using absolute position, than wrap it inside a relative positioned container, so that it doesn't flow out in the wild
