Table with table-layout fixed and how to make one column wider

0 votes

So I have a table with this style:

table-layout: fixed;

It results in the equal width of all columns. I want the first column to be wider, with the following columns filling in the remaining space in the table with equal widths.

How do you do that?

table {
  border-collapse: collapse;
  width: 100%;
  border: 1px solid black;
  background: #ddd;
  table-layout: fixed;
}

table th, table td {
  border: 1px solid #000;
}

table td.wideRow, table th.wideRow {
  width: 300px;
}
<table class="CalendarReservationsBodyTable">
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th colspan="97">Rezervovane auta</th>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <th class="corner wideRow">Auto</th>
      <th class="odd" colspan="4">0</th>
      <th class="" colspan="4">1</th>
      <th class="odd" colspan="4">2</th>
      <th class="" colspan="4">3</th>
      <th class="odd" colspan="4">4</th>
      <th class="" colspan="4">5</th>
      <th class="odd" colspan="4">6</th>
      <th class="" colspan="4">7</th>
      <th class="odd" colspan="4">8</th>
      <th class="" colspan="4">9</th>
      <th class="odd" colspan="4">10</th>
      <th class="" colspan="4">11</th>
      <th class="odd" colspan="4">12</th>
      <th class="" colspan="4">13</th>
      <th class="odd" colspan="4">14</th>
      <th class="" colspan="4">15</th>
      <th class="odd" colspan="4">16</th>
      <th class="" colspan="4">17</th>
      <th class="odd" colspan="4">18</th>
      <th class="" colspan="4">19</th>
      <th class="odd" colspan="4">20</th>
      <th class="" colspan="4">21</th>
      <th class="odd" colspan="4">22</th>
      <th class="" colspan="4">23</th>

The table-layout CSS property specifies the algorithm used to arrange the cells, rows, and columns of a table.

Use the following code:

table {
  table-layout: fixed;
  width: 120px;
  border: 1px solid red;
}

td {
  border: 1px solid blue;
  overflow: hidden;
  white-space: nowrap;
  text-overflow: ellipsis;
}
