it helps some times Imagine a very common
layout, where the header and footer are fixed heights and the article gets as tall as needed (the page scrolls vertically to accommodate). That's like most web pages. , Here's a solution that works on webkit browsers, Firefox, and IE:
code :
// JS to work around the CSS column bug where the width
// is not properly calculated by the browser. We have a
// float:right marker at the end of the article. Set the
// width of the article to be where the marker is.
function resize()
    var article = document.querySelector("article"),
        marker = document.querySelector("endmarker");

    article.style.width = (marker.offsetLeft) + "px";

window.addEventListener("resize", resize);
* { padding: 0; margin: 0; }

holder {
    position: absolute;
    top: 0; left: 0;
    height: 100%;
    background: #fed;
    white-space: nowrap;

footer {
    position: relative;
	display: inline-block;
	height: 100%;
	vertical-align: top;
    white-space: normal;

header {
	background: green;
	width: 400px;

endmarker {
    position: relative;
    display: block;
    float: right;
    width: 10px;
    height: 10px;
    background: red;

article {
	background: #CCC;

	-webkit-columns: 235px auto;
    -moz-columns: 235px auto;
	columns: 235px auto;
    -webkit-column-fill: auto;
    -moz-column-fill: auto;
    column-fill: auto;
	-webkit-column-gap: 0;
	-moz-column-gap: 0;
	column-gap: 0;

article p {
	padding: .2em 15px;
	text-indent: 1em;
	hyphens: auto;

footer {
	background: yellow;
	width: 450px;
    	<h1>Article Title (width 400)</h1>
    <p><b>Article should stretch as wide as it needs to be. Horizontal scrolling only. Preferably, columns aren't sized according to viewport width. Seeing partial column helps the user know they can scroll left.</b>

2-column layout with fixed content width, unlimited background width

2-column layout with fixed content width, unlimited background width

This might help you If you want to use an image as you bg, then the image should span a minimum of 960px, the first 640px being one colour and the right 320px should be the other colour.
If you want the bg to span the entire site, then you have to create a background large enough to span the first 1024px with the above column dimensions I mentioned. Add this to your CSS:
code :
.wrapper {
    background:url("my image here") 0 0 repeat-y;
col1 { background-color:#fff; }
col2 { background-color:#ccc; }
<div class="wrapper">
    <div class="content">
        <div class="col1">
        <div class="col2">
// This will create a wrapper across the entire page.
.wrapper {
    margin:0 auto;

// This is your centered column
.content {

// This is your first column
.col1 {
    background: **your background goes here

// This is your second column
.col2 {
    background: **your background goes here

I wish this helpful for you I have a 5-column table whose first and last columns have fixed (and different) widths. How do I force the 3 center columns to be equally distributed across the remaining width of the table? , How about trying the following?
code :
<!DOCTYPE html>

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <script src="script.js"></script>
    <style type="text/css">
      table{width: 100%; font-size: 0; line-height: 12px; table-layout: fixed;}
      td {border: 1px solid black; }
      #first{ min-width: 10px; width: 10px; }
      #second{ min-width: 20px; width: 20px; }

      <td id="first">&nbsp;</td>
      <td id="second">&nbsp;</td>
      <td id="third">&nbsp;</td>
      <td id="fourth">&nbsp;</td>
      <td id="fifth">&nbsp;</td>

Hope that helps I've successfully solved the problem using CSS grid as it was suggested by Aravind Anil in the comments. Here is the solution:
code :

    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <style type="text/css">
        body {
            background: #CCCCCC;
            margin: 10px;

        .item-header {
            grid-area: header;
            justify-self: center;
            padding: 1rem;

        .item-sidebar {
            grid-area: sidebar;
            padding: 1rem;

        .item-main-1 {
            grid-area: main-block-1;
            background: white;
            padding: 1rem;
            border-radius: 5px;

        .item-main-2 {
            grid-area: main-block-2;
            background: white;
            padding: 1rem;
            border-radius: 5px;

        .container {
            display: grid;
            grid-template-columns: auto 1fr 1fr;
            grid-template-rows: 60px 1fr;
                "header header header"
                "sidebar main-block-1 main-block-2";
            grid-column-gap: 15px;
            grid-row-gap: 15px;
            height: 100%;


    <div class="container">
        <div class="item-header">
        <div class="item-sidebar">
        <div class="item-main-1">
        <div class="item-main-2">


Trying to make the label of UITableViewCell limited in width but unlimited in height

Trying to make the label of UITableViewCell limited in width but unlimited in height

wish of those help You need to subclass the UITableViewCell and set the size of the label in layoutSubviews.
Although when you are creating the cell the label is being sized correctly, every time the cell is drawn on the screen your sizes are 'overwritten' by the UITableViewCell methods and so you don't see any change.
