{{Div col}} can be used to make a list into columns that wrap properly and compatibly with portable computer devices, esp. PAD operating systems and small screens. It automatically breaks the available space into equal spaces, meaning, for instance, that it is not necessary to work out the halfway point, or the one-third and two-thirds points between two columns.

  • The list content is either provided by the content parameter (which can be restrictive of what content is allowed; e.g., wiki markup like | must somehow be escaped), or terminated with {{div col end}}. The {{columns-list}} wrapper uses the parameter method for providing content (including its limitations).
  • The template system (family) also offers parameter options to set a smaller (90%) font-size parameter (small=yes), place vertical lines parameter ("rules") between the columns (rules) and to add other custom styling (style).

{{Div col}} can create multiple columns in web browsers that support the following CSS properties:

By default, the template creates columns that are 30em wide.

Usage

There are five parameters for this template; their usage is described below.

colwidth 
Specifies the minimum width of the columns and determines automatically the number of columns based on screen width (i.e. more columns will be shown on wider displays). Can be specified in any CSS unit, for instance in em, about the width of a capital "M", e.g., colwidth=20em. If no value is supplied, the template uses a default of 30em.
rules 
Adds vertical lines ("rules") between the columns if set to yes or some CSS styling (e.g. 1px dashed blue;).
gap 
Specifies the space between the content of adjacent columns. Specified in any CSS unit, e.g, gap=2em. The default spacing (set by browser) is 1em.
style 
CSS styling to apply to the columns.
content 
content to apply to the columns.

Examples

{{div col end}}
produces
  • a

  • b
  • c
  • d
  • e
  • f
  • g
  • h

Usage of "gap" parameter

Example
{{Div col|colwidth=10em|rules=yes|gap=2em}}
* a
* b
* c
* d
* e
* f
* g
* h
{{Div col end}}
produces
  • a
  • b
  • c
  • d
  • e

  • g
  • h

Usage of "small" parameter

Example showing how setting "small" parameter to "yes" produces smaller font size
{{Div col|small=yes}}
* a
* b
* c
* d
* e
* f
* g
* h
{{Div col end}}
produces
  • a
  • b
  • c
  • d
  • e
  • f
  • g
  • h

Example showing how to provide "content" parameter without using {{Div col end}}
{{Div col|colwidth=10em|content=

* b
* c
* d
* e
* f
* g
* h
}}
produces
  • a
  • b
  • c
  • d
  • e
  • f
  • g
  • h

Usage with multiple parameters

Parameters can be used in any order. Example:

{{Div col|colwidth=10em|rules=yes|gap=2em|small=yes}}
* a
* b
* c
* d
* e
* f
* g
* h
{{Div col end}}

or

{{Div col|rules=yes|gap=2em|small=yes|colwidth=10em}}
* a
* b
* c
* d
* e
* f
* g
* h
{{Div col end}}
produces
  • a
  • b
  • c
  • d
  • e
  • f
  • g
  • h

and exactly the same result below

  • a
  • b
  • c
  • d
  • e
  • f
  • g
  • h
Example with column width of 20em
{{div col|colwidth=20em}}
* a
* b
* c
* d
* e
* f
* g
* h
{{div col end}}
produces
  • a
  • b
  • c
  • d
  • e
  • f
  • g
  • h
Example with column width of 30em
{{div col|colwidth=30em}}
* a
* b
* c
* d
* e
* f
* g
* h
{{div col end}}
produces
  • a
  • b
  • c
  • d
  • e
  • f
  • g
  • h
Example of how this template behaves if no bullets (generated by asterisk mark) are used.
