flex-basis

The flex-basis property is the desired size of an element before it grows or shrinks to fit within its container.

Property values

This property is meaningful only on elements that are directly within a flexbox container. It can be thought of as being synonymous with the element's original width or height, before the container's grow/shrink algorithm adjusts its size.

When the element's container has flex-direction:column, this property affects its width. When the element's container has flex-direction:row, this property affects its height.

Specify this value as one of these keywords:

Keywords:

content Automatically size according to the element's content
min-content The smallest size where the contents won't overflow
max-content The largest size where the contents fit perfectly, with no unused space
fit-content(size) The given size, but never more than max-content and never less than min-content

Or use any of these font-relative typographic units:

em em The font-size of the current font
rem relative em The font-size of the <html> element
lh line height The line-height of the current font
rlh relative line height The line-height of the <html> element
cap cap height The nominal height of the current font's capital letters
ex "x" The height of the current font's "x" glyph
ch "0" The advance measure (the width) of the current font's "0" glyph
ic ideograph count The advance measure (the width) of the current font's "水" ideograph

Or use any of these fixed size units which are independent of the current font:

in inch A size equal 96px
px pixels A size equal to 1/96 inch
pt point A size equal 1in/72 = 1.33px
pc pica A size equal 1in/6 = 12pt = 16px
cm centimeter A size equal to 96px/2.54 = 37.8px
mm millimeter A size equal to 96px/25.4 = 3.8px
Q quarter millimeter A size equal to 96px/1016 = 0.94px
