The CSS place-content property is the shorthand of align-content and justify-content property. The shorthand properties in CSS means that you can set the multiple properties values in a single property. Here the place-content property can hold the value of the align-content and justify-content property values.   

Syntax:

place-content: align-content-property-value justify-content-property-value

Property Values: This property accepts all the possible combination values that can make by the align-content and justify-content property values.

  • start: This property is used to align flex items from the start of the container.
  • end: This property is used to align flex items from the end of the container.
  • flex-start: This property displays the lines at the start of the flex container.
  • flex-end: This property displays the flex lines at the end of the flex container.
  • center: This property aligns flex items at the center of the container.
  • space-around: This property distribute space equally around the flex lines.
  • space-between: This property distribute flex lines space with equal space between them.
  • space-evenly: This property defines the position with equal spacing between them but the spacing from corners differs.
  • stretch: This property defines the line stretched to take the remaining space of the flex container. It is the default value.
