The inline-size property in CSS is used to define the horizontal or vertical size of an element’s block. It coincides with the width or the height property, depending on the value of the writing-mode property. It leaves the space around the element text.
inline-size: length | percentage | auto | inherit | initial | unset
- length: It sets a fixed value defined in px, cm, pt etc. Negative values are allowed. Its default value is 0px.
- percentage: It is same as length but as a percentage of the window size.
- auto: It is used when it is desired that the browser determines the inline-size.
- initial: It is used to set the value of the block-size property to its default value.
- inherit: It is used when it is desired that the element inherit theblock-size property of its parent as its own.
