Basic usage

Setting the minimum height

Set the minimum height of an element using the min-h-0, min-h-full, or min-h-screen utilities.

<div class="h-48">
  <div class="h-24 min-h-full">
    <!-- ... -->

Applying conditionally

Hover, focus, and other states

Tailwind lets you conditionally apply utility classes in different states using variant modifiers. For example, use hover:min-h-full to only apply the min-h-full utility on hover.

<div class="h-24 min-h-0 hover:min-h-full">
  <!-- ... -->

For a complete list of all available state modifiers, check out the Hover, Focus, & Other States documentation.

Breakpoints and media queries

You can also use variant modifiers to target media queries like responsive breakpoints, dark mode, prefers-reduced-motion, and more. For example, use md:min-h-full to apply the min-h-full utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<div class="h-24 min-h-0 md:min-h-full">
  <!-- ... -->

To learn more, check out the documentation on Responsive Design, Dark Mode and other media query modifiers.

Using custom values

Customizing your theme

You can customize your min-height scale by editing theme.minHeight or theme.extend.minHeight in your tailwind.config.js file.

module.exports = {
  theme: {
    minHeight: {
      '1/2': '50%',

Learn more about customizing the default theme in the theme customization documentation.

Arbitrary values

If you need to use a one-off min-height value that doesn’t make sense to include in your theme, use square brackets to generate a property on the fly using any arbitrary value.

<div class="min-h-[50%]">
  <!-- ... -->

Learn more about arbitrary value support in the arbitrary values documentation.
