View Full Version : Center a div vertically in another div

I am sure this question was asked more than 100 times but I still can not find a simple answer, how to center a Div vertically inside another Div?

One of my colleagues told me to use padding to push the inner Div to center, I don't think it's a good idea, please do not give me the same answer.

Try this.

<div style="position: relative; width:200px; height:200px; background-color:blue;">
<div style="position: absolute; width:100px; height:100px; top: 50%; margin-top: -50px; background-color:red;">
Centered Box
