Vertical Text Gos Outside the box

About 12 months ago you helped me to align som etext vertically in a table.

The CSS which worked on www.c5d.co.uk/descriptioned21891.php was as follows:
/* TABLE.test */
.test {
table-layout:auto;
width:950px;
border-spacing:3px;
margin:0px auto;
}
.test th,
.test td {
width:9%;
border:1px solid #000;
text-align:center;
vertical-align:middle;
padding:2px 0 1px;
}
.test th.col7,
.test td.col7 {width:11%;}
.test th.col8,
.test td.col8 {width:11%;}
.test th.col9,
.test td.col9 {width:24%;}

/* TEXT */
.test p {
margin:.2em .1em .4em;
}
.test p.rotate {
display:inline-block;
-webkit-transform:rotate(-90deg);
-moz-transform:rotate(-90deg);
-ms-transform:rotate(-90deg);
transform:rotate(-90deg);
line-height:1.5;
letter-spacing:1px;
margin:0 -90px;
}

/* LIST */
.test ul {
list-style-type:none;
padding:4px 0 6px;
margin:0;
}
.test li {
margin:5px auto;
}

I have a similar table now which I want just two table cells to be vertical.

It’s www.c5d.co.uk/workhouse.php

I have renamed the table “vertical” in this web page but the text goes out of the cell

What am I missing ?

Thanks

It only worked in the previous table because there was a lot of content in column 9 on that row. Are you likely to have content in the other cells of that row? If not, you could put some dummy content, like <br>s, but that’s very dirty, so there are better CSS options (such as tr:nth-child(3) {height: 400px;}). But the table will look pretty weird with no other content on that row anyway. :-/

Thanks for your thoughts.

I was hoping to somehow limit the height of the cell to force it to wrap, or something similar.

Maybe this should be the width if the text is rotated 90 degrees.

The effct may be weird but it will then look as originally printed. It is a census transcription from 170 years ago.

I just want the two cells showing the text “whether born in the same County” and Whether born in Scotland Ireland or Foreign Parts to read vertically as the form was printed.

Thanks

Rather than doing multiple rows the data needs to be in one row as per your original example.

You would need to put all that date in a nested table inside one cell and then the vertical text in cells of their own so you basically have a table with three cells. The firs cell contains the nested table and the other two cells just contain the vertical text.

e.g.


<table class="vertical">

						</table></td>
				<td class="workhouse"><p class="rotate">Whether&nbsp;Born&nbsp; in the same County.</p></td>
				<td><p class="rotate">Whether&nbsp;Born&nbsp;in  Scotland,&nbsp;Ireland, or&nbsp;Foreign&nbsp;Parts.</p></td>
		</tr>
</table>

You will probably have to change the negative margins on p.rotate as this text is much longer than your other example.

e.g.


.vertical p.rotate {
    display: inline-block;
    letter-spacing: 1px;
    line-height: 1.5;
    margin: 0 -146px;
    transform: rotate(-90deg);
    white-space: nowrap;
}

That will have to be a new class or it will conflict with the other table.

The other problem is that because the table is so tall you will have to scroll down a bit before you see the centred vertical text.

Thanks for this but what you have suggested appears to put the text into another row.

Maybe an image of what I am trying to achive will help

It’s attached

Thanks

It’s basically the same answer :slight_smile:

Just put all that top row into single cells. You will need to split the last cell into two rows and two columns.

e.g.


<table class="vertical">
		<tbody>
				<tr class="firstrow">
						<td colspan="2" rowspan="2">NAMES&nbsp;of&nbsp;each&nbsp;person&nbsp;who&nbsp;abode&nbsp;therein&nbsp;on&nbsp;the Night&nbsp;of&nbsp;Sunday,&nbsp;June&nbsp;6th.</td>
						<td rowspan="2" >Age of Males.</td>
						<td rowspan="2" >Age of Females.</td>
						<td rowspan="2" >OCCUPATION, if any.</td>
						<td class="last" colspan="2">Where&nbsp;born</td>
				</tr>
				<tr class="rot">
						<td><p class="rotate2">Whether&nbsp;Born <br>
										in&nbsp;same&nbsp;County.</p></td>
						<td><p class="rotate2">Whether&nbsp;Born&nbsp;in <br>
										Scotland,&nbsp;Ireland, <br>
										or&nbsp;Foreign&nbsp;Parts.</p></td>

Well I achieved what I set out to do and it’s now here.

www.c5d.co.uk/workhouse.php

As usual I couldn’t have done it without your help.

An extract of the css and the table is here

    -webkit-transform:rotate(-90deg);
    -moz-transform:rotate(-90deg);
    -ms-transform:rotate(-90deg);

Glad you got it working :slight_smile:

Note that my example will vertically distribute those heading in line with your vertical text if that’s what you wanted.

Thanks for this.

Our repleis crossed.

My page has Ralph M’s <&bsp;> but it works.

I shall try your pure CSS example in the morning when I have some time to do it properly

Thanks for your help as always
