What is Overflow?

An overflow issue occurs when the user unintentionally scrolls horizontally on a web page due to an unintentional horizontal scrollbar. Different factors can cause overflows to occur.

“When there is too much content for a box to contain, overflow occurs.”

Keywords You Can Use To Overflow

The overflow property can accept the following possible values:

div {
   overflow: visible | hidden | scroll | auto | inherit
}

Visible CSS Overflow:

visible CSS

When the content leaves the boundary of its box, it is not clipped. This is the default setting of this property.

CSS:

.element {
  height: 100px;
  overflow: visible;
}

Hidden Overflow CSS:

Hidden CSS

Content that is overflowing will be hidden.

CSS:

.element {
height: 100px;
overflow: hidden;
}

Scroll:

Scroll CSS

Hidden with the exception that users can move through the hidden content as they scroll.

Whether the content is long or short, the scrollbar is always visible.

CSS code:

.element {
  height: 100px;
  overflow: scroll;
}

Auto:
