css : center element vertically and horizontally

CSS transform allows us to modify the coordinate space of any element.

transform can have one of the following functions as its value :

  • rotate
  • skew
  • scale
  • matrix
  • translate
  • perspective

Using the translate function we can solve the problem of centering any element in the middle of the page.

First, we need to center the element in the middle of the page using top and left. Then we need to consider offset the middling for its height and width using transform: translate(x, y).
