CSS Float

CSS Float: The float property of CSS is the positioning property. This property is applied to elements to push them either to left or right. It permits for wrapping facility to other elements. Generally, it is applied with layouts and images.

These elements are only horizontally floated. Thus, it is feasible to float various elements either in the left or right direction, not in the up or down direction.

  • After these floating elements, the elements will flow over it.
  • Before these floating elements, the elements can’t be affected.
  • If any image floated in the right direction, the text flow flows in the left direction around it. If any image floated in the left direction, the text flow flows in the right direction around it.
