HTML Tables IV: Format and touch up a page layout

This table has autostretch.

One final adjustment you can make to a layout table is to apply autostretch. Doing so will make the table automatically resize to fill the entire space of a site visitor's browser window.

Click the Play button on the left to see an animated example of a table with autostretch.

Autostretch might sound familiar if you took HTML Tables II, but in that course, you had to set it up manually. With layout tables, it only takes a few clicks. Make sure to take the practice session to learn how.

Note    You can apply autostretch to only one column in a layout table. The other columns will remain at a fixed width.
