What does this mean scope=col?

Hello there. What does the scope=“col” mean?

Please post your actual code instead of a picture. Thanks

When I try to post the code, it doesn’t post it in a good format

When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

Hi @mcmichaeltyler93 ,

The HTML <th> scope Attribute is used to specify the header cell is used for header row, column, colgroup or rowgroup . This attribute does not display any visual effect on the browser but it is used for screen readers.

Syntax:

<th scope="col | row | colgroup | rowgroup">

Attribute Values:

  • col: It specifies that the header cell is used for column.
  • row: It specifies that the header cell is used for row.
  • colgroup: It specifies that the header cell is used for group of column.
  • rowgroup: It specifies that the header cell is used for group of row.
