I'd like to populate an element (probably a
<div>) with a list of hyperlinks. Is there a way to populate content so it fills to the height of the element, then flows to the right, essentially creating dynamic columns? I'm looking for something similar to the file list in a browse dialog. Content will be arbitrarily pulled from the database, so I won't know in advance how many items there'll be.Possible, or am I asking for too much? (This is a customer request, but I can work around if necessary.)
If you are able to use CSS3 you could try the new column properties. There is an excellent article at A List Apart that goes over it pretty well.
