{{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 which support the following CSS properties:

  • column-width (for CSS3-compliant browsers; see CSS3 module: Multi-column layout)

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

Usage of "colwidth" parameter

Example with column width of 10em
{{div col|colwidth=10em}}
* a
* b
* c
* d
* e
* f
* g
* h
{{div col end}}
produces
  • a
  • b
  • c
  • d
  • e
  • f
  • g
  • h

Usage of "rules" parameter

Example
{{Div col|rules=yes}}
* a
* b
* c
* d
* e
* f
* g
* h
{{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
  • f
  • 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

Usage of "content" parameter

Example showing how to provide "content" parameter without using {{Div col end}}
{{Div col|colwidth=10em|content=
* a
* 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.
{{div col|colwidth=10em}}
a
b
c
d
e
f
g
h
{{div col end}}
produces

dagger I.e., can the columns handle the wiki markup {| | || |- |} used to create tables? If not, templates that produce these elements (such as {{(!}}, {{!}}, {{!!}}, {{!-}}, {{!)}}) and/or HTML tags (<table>...</table>, <tr>...</tr>, etc.) will need to be used instead.
