Tailwind CSS Place Self
  • Last Updated : 11 Feb, 2021

This class accepts lots of values in tailwind CSS. It is the alternative to the CSS Place Items property. This class is used for controlling how an individual item is justified and aligned at the same time. In this class, you can set multiple class values in a single class. 

Place Self Classes:

  • place-self-auto 
  • place-self-start 
  • place-self-end 
  • place-self-center 
  • place-self-stretch 

place-self-auto: This class is used if the items have no parent. This class is used to define the absolute position of the items.

Syntax:

<element class="place-self-auto">...</element>
