CSS Overflow

The overflow property defines whether the content must be clipped or added to the scrollbars when the content of an element is too big to fit in the specified area.

The overflow property consists of the following values:

  • visible – Default. The overflow is not clipped. The content is rendered outside the element’s box.
  • hidden – The overflow is clipped, and the rest of the content will be invisible.
  • scroll – The overflow is clipped, and a scrollbar is added to see the rest of the content
  • auto – Similar to scroll but adds scrollbars only when required.

1) overflow: visible

The overflow is visible means that it is not clipped and it renders outside the element’s box

				
					<h2>Overflow: visible</h2>
<p>By default, the overflow is visible, meaning that it is not clipped and it renders outside the element's box:</p>
<div>You can use the overflow property when you want to have better control of the layout. The overflow property specifies what happens if content overflows an element's box.</div>

				
			
CSS
				
					div {
  background-color: grey;
  width: 200px;
  height: 65px;
  border: 1px solid;
  overflow: visible;
}
				
			

Output

overflow visible

2) overflow: hidden

Using the overflow hidden value, the overflow is clipped, and the rest of the content is hidden:

HTML
				
					<h2>Overflow: hidden</h2>

<p>With the hidden value, the overflow is clipped, and the rest of the content is hidden:</p>
<p>Try to remove the overflow property to understand how it works.</p>
<div>You can use the overflow property when you want to have better control of the layout. The overflow property specifies what happens if content overflows an element's box.</div>
				
			
CSS
				
					div {
  background-color: grey;
  width: 200px;
  height: 65px;
  border: 1px solid black;
  overflow: hidden;
}
				
			

Output

3) overflow: scroll

If the value is set to scroll, the overflow is clipped and a scrollbar is used with the  scroll inside the box.

HTML
				
					<h2>Overflow: scroll</h2>
<p>Setting the overflow value to scroll, the overflow is clipped and a scrollbar is added to scroll inside the box. Note that this will add a scrollbar both horizontally and vertically (even if you do not need it):</p>
<div>You can use the overflow property when you want to have better control of the layout. The overflow property specifies what happens if content overflows an element's box.</div>
				
			
CSS
				
					div {
  background-color: grey;
  width: 200px;
  height: 100px;
  border: 1px solid black;
  overflow: scroll;
}
				
			

Output

overflow scroll

4) overflow: auto

The auto value is like scroll, but it adds scrollbars only if required:

HTML
				
					<h2>Overflow: auto</h2>

<p>The auto value is similar to scroll, only it add scrollbars when necessary:</p>
<div>You can use the overflow property when you want to have better control of the layout. The overflow property specifies what happens if content overflows an element's box.</div>

				
			
CSS
				
					div {
  background-color: grey;
  width: 200px;
  height: 65px;
  border: 1px solid black;
  overflow: auto;
}

				
			

Output

5) overflow-x and overflow-y

The overflow-x and overflow-y properties define whether the overflow of content should be changed horizontally or vertically (or both):

overflow-x defines what should be done with the left/right edges of the content.

overflow-y specifies what should be done with the top/bottom edges of the content.

HTML
				
					<h2>Overflow-x and overflow-y</h2>
<p>You can also change the overflow of content horizontally or vertically.</p>
<p>overflow-x specifies what to do with the left/right edges of the content.</p>
<p>overflow-y specifies what to do with the top/bottom edges of the content.</p>
<div>You can use the overflow property when you want to have better control of the layout. The overflow property specifies what happens if content overflows an element's box.</div>
				
			
CSS
				
					div {
  background-color: grey;
  width: 200px;
  height: 65px;
  border: 1px solid black;
  overflow-x: scroll;
  overflow-y: scroll;
}
