    Lightbulb Classes in CSS

    Hi all,

    We can use multiple classes for an element, i have a doubt is there any limitation for the count?

    E.g
    <div class="class1 class2 class3 ..... "></div>

    How many classes can be used for an element?

    Share Your Ideas....

    No idea. I thought you could just use as many as you wanted.

    No limitation, -so long as no declaration/selector over-rules another, previously-stated. Then, order-of-precidence takes 'hold and the last-stated is the obeyed.

    .first {color:red;....}
    .second {color:blue;....}
    .third {color:green;...}
    applied to:
    <h1 class="first second third">HEADER TEXT</h2>
    would be GREEN text, because the class "third" is stated last in the precedence order in the HTML..

    It gets complicated when you want some styles from class="first" and class="second" if you need "display:block;" and the second class states "display:inline;", and so forth...

    Myself, if more than TWO classes are needed, I combine the stated-needed Declarations and create another new class (like, class="four") and use solely that, instead of combining three potentially-conflicting classes.

    Within the confines of the syntax of HTML a class is just an attribute and I've never seen a character limit on an attribute value. If there are limits they are probably browser specific.
