Table Center To Browser

Hi Experts!

Thanks for reading this.

Trying to build a page with a header, footer, and a table.

Need help centering table to the browser, but the contents in the table shouldn't be centered. If you could can show the table's border and add the buttons that would be gravy.

Should look like this:

screenshoot
Here's the incomplete code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>MyTitle</title>
</head>

<body>

<div id="Header">Header</div>

    <table>
    <tr>
        <td>button 1 </td>
        <td>button 2 </td>
        <td>button 3 </td>
    </tr>
</table>

<div id="Footer"> Footer</div>

</body>
</html>

Open in new window


TIA!

Hi, try this:

<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
#Header {background-color:#CCC; border: solid 1px #AAA;}
#Footer {background-color:#CCC; border: solid 1px #AAA;}
.centerTable {background-color:#EEE; height:90%; width:100px; margin: 20px 0px;}
.centerTable td {text-align:center; vertical-align: middle;}
</style>
</head>

<body>

<div id="Header">Header</div>
<center>
    <table class="centerTable" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="1">
    <tr>
        <td>button 1 </td>
        <td>button 2 </td>
        <td>button 3 </td>
    </tr>
</table>
</center>
<div id="Footer"> Footer</div>

</body>
</html>

Open in new window


Now you can change width of table in CSS.

Try this:

The CSS
    <style type="text/css">

	padding-top: 2px;
	padding-bottom: 2px;
	padding-left: 4px;
	font-family: Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 14px;
	border: 1px solid #000000;
}
#Footer {
	background-color: #99CCFF;
	padding-top: 2px;
	padding-bottom: 2px;
	padding-left: 4px;
	font-family: Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 14px;
	border: 1px solid #000000;
}
#table_div {
	border: thin solid #999999;
	padding-top: 25px;
	padding-bottom: 25px;
	margin-top: 30px;
	margin-bottom: 30px;
	text-align: center;
	margin-right: auto;
	margin-left: auto;
	width: 90%;

#table_div #myTable {

#myTable .td_button {

Hi HagayMandel,

a quick question; how do you change the Table width?
Tried several adjusting the 'width' in with the different selector in CSS and doesn't work.

Thanks!
