CSS Responsive Table

Responsive Table

A responsive table will display a horizontal scroll bar if the screen is too small to display the full content:

Add a container element (like <div>) with overflow-x:auto around the <table> element to make it responsive:


<div style="overflow-x:auto;">

... table content ...


Note: In OS X Lion (on Mac), scrollbars are hidden by default and only shown when being used (even though “overflow:scroll” is set).
