Force DIVs to container's height - start new "column"

P: 2

I managed to place few DIVs, one below another in container DIV.
The container DIV has fixed height (about the height of 2 inner DIVs).
The problem is that the inner DIVs are drawn, in one "column", down and out of the container.

How can I make them start new "column" when reaching the height of the container?

am1974po has a DIV (DIV1) in a page that hold two more DIV (DIV2 & DIV3) in a column layout.

The container DIV (DIV1) has a fixed size in height, suppose 300px. now if the inner DIV's height become greater than 300px, then those have to show their content in columns.

CSS3 can show the contents in a div in columns. you may use JavaScript to check the inner div's height greater than the container div or not. And if, greater than, then use CCS3 column setting.
