If you are creating column divs in JavaScript but they are rendering as rows instead, it is likely due to how you are setting the CSS styles for the divs. To create column divs, you need to apply the correct CSS properties to make them display in a column layout.

Here's an example of how to create column divs using JavaScript and apply the necessary CSS styles:


<div id="container"></div>


// Function to create and append column divs function createColumnDivs() { const container = document.getElementById('container'); // Create three column divs for (let i = 0; i < 3; i++) { const columnDiv = document.createElement('div'); columnDiv.textContent = `Column ${i + 1}`; container.appendChild(columnDiv); } } // Call the function to create the column divs createColumnDivs();


/* Apply column layout to the container */ #container { display: flex; flex-direction: column; } /* Add styles for the column divs */ #container div { padding: 10px; border: 1px solid black; }

In this example, the JavaScript code creates three column divs inside the #container div. The CSS styles are applied to the #container div to use flexbox with flex-direction: column, which makes the child divs stack vertically as columns.

By setting flex-direction: column, you ensure that the child divs inside the container div are arranged in a column layout. The padding and border styles are added to demonstrate the column layout visually.

If you're still experiencing issues where the divs are rendering as rows, double-check the CSS styles and make sure there are no conflicting styles applied elsewhere in your code. Additionally, inspect the rendered HTML and CSS using the browser's developer tools to understand how the styles are being applied and if there are any overriding styles causing the unexpected behavior.
