CSS justify-tracks Property

The justify-tracks property in CSS is known for setting the alignment in the masonry axis for the grid containers that contain masonry in their inline axis. The property may take a single value where all the tracks are aligned in the same way.

In case a list of values is used, then the first value gets applied to the first track in the grid axis and the second track to the next grid, and so on.

In case there are fewer values than the tracks, the last value gets for all the remaining tracks. In case there are more values than the tracks, then any extra value is ignored.

Syntax

justify-tracks:start|space-between|center|start|center|end|
inherit|initial|unset

Example: CSS justify-tracks Property

Here in the example below, we are using the justify-tracks property to align grid containers according to the value of this property as specified by us.

In this case, we have given the justify-tracks property value as an end, center, space-around. So, our grid containers or items get aligned according to these values.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
	<title>The justify-tracks property in CSS</title>
	<style type="text/css">
		.grid {
	  display: grid;
	  gap: 10px;
	  grid-template-columns: masonry;
	  grid-template-rows: repeat(3, 100px);
	  justify-tracks: end, center, space-around;
	  color: blue;
	}
	.item1{
		inline-size: 6em;
		}
		.item2{
	inline-size: 7.5em;
		}
		.item3{
			inline-size: 2.5em;
		}
	</style>
</head>
