I have an image that I want to use as button image. I want to be able to define an area where the buttons shall be located. How can I set limits for where the buttons will be located?


I want to have the buttons in two rows and I don't know how many buttons there will be at a certain time since they are created dynamically.

A link to the page would help.  what do you mean by: How can I set limits for where the buttons will be located?

I don't have a link.

I have a web-page containing a header. Directly under there I want to have two rows with buttons like this:

---------------
1 3 5 7 9
2 4 6 8 10
---------------

How do I control in a nice way where they end up? When I put them out with position:absolute, it looked very ugly when I shrinked and grow the browser since the resten moved away accordingly.

One idea could be to use flexbox. I have tried that but without success. The plan then was to group the images two and two, putting columns (of two images) beside other columns.

How do I do that?

Flexbox is very thinly support and not yet reliable.

Just float the buttons left and they will line up and adjust when the browser width is changed.

I can't really do much with coding without seeing the page, and seeing what you are actually building.

Float left was almost perfect! Great!
