Positioning (Css tutorial)

Hello Web design tutorialz readers! morning to you all. Welcome to a new section on my tutorials on CSS. Before i continue i want to first apologize to you guys for not droping any tutorial post since last month, was very busy with other stuffs.

Am going to continue from where i stoped, in my last tutorial on CSS i talked about Visibility and i showed you guys how it works. Now in this tutorial am going to be talking about Positioning in CSS. Without wasting much time, lets go down to business.

CSS helps you to position your HTML element. You can put any HTML element at whatever location you like. You can specify whether you want the element positioned relative to its natural position in the page or absolute based on its parent element.

Now lets take a look at all the CSS positioning related properties with proper examples.

Relative Positioning 
Relative positioning changes the position of the HTML element relative to where it normally appears. So "left:30" adds 30 pixels to the element's LEFT position.

You can use two values top and left along with the position property to move a HTML element any where in a HTML document.
  • Move Left - Use a negative value for left.
  • Move Right - Use a positive value for right.
  • Move Up - Use a negative value for top.
  • Move Down - Use a positive value for down.
NOTE: You can use the bottom or right values as well in same way as top and left.

Below is a short example:

<div style="position:relative; left:70px; top:4px;
                    background-color:red;">
This div element has a relative positioning.
</div>

Absolute Positioning
An element with absolute position is positioned at the specified coordinates relative to your screen top-left corner.

You can use two values top and left along with the position property to move a HTML element any where in a HTML document.
  • Move Left - Use a negative value for left.
  • Move Right - Use a positive value for right.
  • Move Up - Use a negative value for top.
  • Move Down - Use a positive value for down.
NOTE: You can use the bottom or right values as well in same way as top and left.

Below is a short example:

<div style="position:absolute; left:70px; top:15px;
                    background-color:red;">
This div element has an absolute positioning.
</div>

Fixed Positioning
Fixed positioning allows you to fix the position of an element to a particular spot on the HTML page, regardless of scrolling. Specified coordinates will be relative to the browser window. 

You can use two values top and left along with the position property to move a HTML element any where in a HTML document.
  • Move Left - Use a negative value for left.
  • Move Right - Use a positive value for right.
  • Move Up - Use a negative value for top.
  • Move Down - Use a positive value for down.
NOTE: You can use the bottom or right values as well in same way as top and left.

Below is a short example:

<div style="position:fixed; left:70px; top:15px;
                    background-color:red;">
This div element has a fixed positioning.
</div>
