Choosing when to display an object

Choosing when to display an object

Choosing when to display an object

I need to move a page column's content over one without putting anything in it's place. I thought it may be simple(ish) to put an invisible object in that spot pushing the visible column over. The issue changes when mobile browsing and there is a huge blank spot between content. Is there a simple(ish) way to use the object when the browser is desktop sized, but not use it when it's mobile sized? Maybe I'm just over thinking the issue too?


RE: Choosing when to display an object

There is a property in CSS called display. You can set it to none to remove things from the layout, and they will take up no room.

So if you are using media queries to target the mobile devices you can do something like:


@media screen and (max-width:750px)
#object (or even div.classname) {

This will hide the object for all resolutions lower than 750px;
