Rico98โ€™s questions for the community

I found difficult using flexbox when the flex-direction is set to column. Not that sure if flexbox is the only way to position the QR Component in the center of the screen. I've heard of margin: auto but couldn't make it work. Feedback is absolutely welcome!

Hello there ๐Ÿ‘‹. Good job on completing the challenge !

I have some suggestions about your code that might interest you.

  • Using display: flex; is a very common way to center elements. Another alternative is to use the grid layout.

    body {
      display: grid;
      min-height: 100vh;
      place-items: center;
    }
    

    Another way to center an element is using display: absolute but it may introduce issues on smaller devices. The component might overflow or cause layout problems.

    If you choose to use margin: auto; for centering, keep in mind that it won't center vertically, only. For vertical centering, you can use flexbox with margin: auto:

    body {
      display: flex;
      min-height: 100vh;
    }
    
    .item {
       margin: auto;
    }
    

I hope you find it useful! ๐Ÿ˜„

Happy coding!

Hey @MelvinAguilar thanks for the feedback!

I'll have a check on grid as an alternative for centering. On the other hand, I find margin a viable solution for, let's say modals; the kind of messages that covers all the screen.

Anyway, thanks again and happy coding!
