# mdframed: continuous background for adjacent blocks

Is it possible for multiple mdframed blocks to have a contiguous background and border if they are next to each other? Here's an example:

These blocks are one after the other in code.

They appear with space between because I want isolated blocks to have some spacing with the rest of the text. What I would like is that if they're next to each other (and are of the same style), the background and border would extend between them like this: (edited on Photoshop)

This is the code I have right now

\documentclass[11pt, a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage{amsthm}
\usepackage{mdframed}
\usepackage{xcolor}

\newtheoremstyle{definition-style}
{}
{}
{}
{}
{\bf\sffamily}
{.}
{.5em}
{\thmname{#1}\thmnumber{ #2}\thmnote{ (#3)}}

\mdfdefinestyle{ndef-frame}{
linewidth=1pt, %
linecolor= gray, %
backgroundcolor= gray!5,
topline=false, %
bottomline=false, %
rightline=false,%
leftmargin=0pt, %
innerleftmargin=1em, %
innerrightmargin=1em,
rightmargin=0pt, %
innertopmargin=1.5em,%
innerbottommargin=1em, %
splittopskip=\topskip, %
%splitbottomskip=\topskip, %
}%

\surroundwithmdframed[style=ndef-frame]{ndef}

\theoremstyle{definition-style}
\newtheorem{ndef}{Definición}[section]

\begin{document}

\begin{ndef}[Name] Text
\end{ndef}

\begin{ndef}[Name] Text
\end{ndef}

\end{document}

• @ChristianHupfer Now it's compilable – José María Apr 22 '17 at 20:07
• Just put them in one block and include some space where you want it? Or use a nested environment to manage the space automatically. – cfr Apr 22 '17 at 22:55
