What is Colspan in HTML?

Introduction

Colspan is an attribute used to define the number of cells available in the span table in HTML. With the help of the colspan attribute, we can define the cell that occupies the width of one or more columns and cells. The working principle of the colspan attribute is similar to the working principle of the merging cell in the Excel worksheet. It also defines the actual number of rows divided in it.

Supported Elements

In HTML, the colspan attribute supports the table tag's <td> and <th> elements. In HTML, we can represent the table with the help of

<td> and <th> elements. We can represent the table's header with the help of <th> tag. Also, we can define the table's data with the help of <td> tag in HTML.

Syntax (with all <td>, <th> & <ElementName> elements):

We can define the colspan element with the help of the following syntax.

In the above syntax, the element name is the tag's name, supported in the HTML. The value defines the number of columns that are going to be spaned. The value is always an integer positive value. The default value of the colspan attribute is 1.

With the help of the following syntax, we can define the colspan attribute with the <td> and <th> elements, which determine the number of columns in a single cell.
