Grid is a 2D (two dimensional) design pattern to handle grid-based user interfaces on the web. It describes the number of properties that allow to design of grid structures and control the placement of grid items using CSS. It can change the layout of grid items irrespective of their source order, which allows moving grid items around to cater to these varying contexts without having to modify the underlying markup.

Syntax: 

grid-column: grid-column-start|grid-column-end;

Property Values: The grid-column-start and grid-column-end, property can be described in three ways:

  • auto: The element will be placed in the default flow. It is default value.
  • span n: It specifies the number of columns item will span in grid-column-start and grid-column-end both cases.
  • column-line: It describes on which column to start and display the item in case of grid-column-start and column on which to end the display of item for grid-column-end.

Example 1: This example describes the grid-column: auto property.
