height: 250px;
border-radius: 250px;
border : 3px solid black;
position: absolute;
left: 0px;
right: 0px;
width: 500px;
height: 500px;
border : 3px solid black;
position: absolute;
left: 25%;
top: 25%;

Please help me with this.
Thank you so much for your time.

If you are trying to get the elements inside the container, you could add the following code to the end of the styling section. This would line all the new elements horizontally and will get stacked.

document.getElementById(b).style.float = 'left';

The following is the updated jsfiddle.


If you want to restrict adding after the container is full, you would need to write a separate logic to identify that.
