resolution media feature

Describes the resolution of the output device—that is, the density of the pixels.

Possible values

  • Value: <resolution>
  • Applies to: bitmap media types
  • Accepts min/max prefixes: yes

Remarks

The resolution of the device can be described in either dots per inch (dpi) or dots per centimeter (dpcm).

When querying devices with non-square (rectangular) pixels:

  • Specifying min-resolution causes the least-dense dimension to be compared to the given value
  • Specifying max-resolution causes the most-dense dimension to be compared to the given value
  • Specifying resolution (without a "min-" or "max-" prefix) never matches a device with non-square pixels

Examples

The following declaration indicates that a style sheet is usable on devices with resolution greater than 300 dpi.


@media print and (min-resolution: 300dpi) {  
  ...
}

The following declaration indicates that a style sheet is usable on devices with resolution greater than 118 dots per centimeter (dpcm).


@media print and (min-resolution: 118dpcm) {  
  ...
}
