Basic Concepts

Okay, let’s start now. What actually is a CSS Float? It’s actually in the name itself. The float property can make an object to float or be placed at a certain position. This includes left, right, or none. There are some cases where the float will NOT WORK. We will look through it after we see how to use CSS Float.

There are 4 values for float. Let’s see the first one.

1. float: none

The first float doesn’t do anything much honestly. The only thing it does is NOT ACTIVATE THE FLOAT.  Here’s how we can easily code float: none property.

<html>
<head>
<style>
.box {
background:royalblue;
float: none;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<p><div class="box" style="width:170px;height:170px;margin-right:15px;"></div>
Insert random text here.</p>
</body>
</html>

2. float: left

This property is a common one. You may have seen articles, blogs or mainly newspaper companies commonly using this technique. Here’s what the output of this property looks like.

<html>

<head>
    <style>
        .box {
            background: royalblue;
            float: Left;
        }
    </style>
</head>

<body>
    <p>
    <div class="box" style="width:170px;height:170px;margin-right:15px;"></div> Insert random text here.</p>
</body>

</html>

3. float: right

<html>

<head>
    <style>
        .box {
            background: royalblue;
            float: right;
        }
    </style>
</head>

<body>
    <p>
    <div class="box" style="width:170px;height:170px;margin-right:15px;"></div> Insert random text here.</p>
</body>

</html>

 

In this property, the output is similar to left float, but imagine if we change the direction by horizontally. The image below shows this well:

For this output, use float:right instead of float:left

4. float: inherit

<html>

<head>
    <style>
        .box {
            background: royalblue;
            float: inherit;
        }
    </style>
</head>

<body>
    <p>
    <div class="box" style="width:170px;height:170px;margin-right:15px;"></div> Insert random text here.</p>
</body>

</html>

This property resembles its name. This property makes the float inherit its original/default position which is float : none . The output is below:

Problems of float

Despite float being easy and nice to use, there are some problems to take note of.

Firstly, elements that have been given the absolute value in CSS, will IGNORE THE FLOAT PROPERTY if applied
Secondly, elements besides a float property element will flow together around it. To avoid this from happening, use the clear property.
