beta This component version is ready to be used but is still in active development.

Full Bleed utility

This utility class allows you to make a container take the full width of the viewport available but keep the content set to the maximum width of the grid.

github location npm version

Usage

As we should be relying on vf-grid, embl-grid, or a container to make sure the content is centered with a maximum width of 76.5em we use the ::before pseudo element to allow the background colour to 'bleed out' and fill any space avaiable.

For this to work you need to make sure that the parent element you place the class .vf-u-fullbleed has to have a background colour.

This can be done either by:

  • using a container component that has a defined background colour.
  • using a background colour utility class.

For example:

<section class="vf-content | embl-grid embl-grid--has-centered-content | vf-u-fullbleed | vf-u-background-color--blue">
  ...
</section>

Notes:

Browsers running on Windows tend to have scrollbars always showing. There is a small bug with the vw unit where the calculations leading to 100vw could create a horizontal scroll bar. To avoid this, without using JavaScript. We need to apply the CSS rule of overflow-x: hidden; to a parent element.

As we are making all components their own installable package we have added the required CSS to this component rather than relying on additional packages. Making use of Sass @at-root directive and defining what element to add the rule too. The variable used for this is $vf-u-fullbleed-parent. This is set to body as the default but can be overridden in your projects overriding Sass variables file (which needs to be near the top of the import file).

.vf-u-fullbleed {
  $vf-u-fullbleed-parent: body !defualt;

  ...

  @at-root #{$vf-u-fullbleed-parent} {
    position: relative;
  }
}

This has been test with sites using VF 1.x and no problems have been found. If you find an issue with this component being used alongside pages built with VF1.x please raise an issue.
