The max-height property in CSS is used to set the maximum height of an element. If the content of the element is larger than the specified maximum-height then the content will overflow otherwise it has no effect. If the content of the element is smaller then it has no effect. The height property value can be overridden by the max-height property.
The max-height property defines the maximum height of an element.
If the content is larger than the maximum height, it will overflow. How the container will handle the overflowing content is defined by the overflow property.
If the content is smaller than the maximum height, the max-height property has no effect.
Note: This prevents the value of the
height property from becoming larger than
max-height. The value of the
max-height property overrides
the height property.
