The inset property in CSS is used to define physical offset, not for the inline offset or logical block. This property can apply to any writing-mode property. 

Syntax:

inset: length|percentage|auto|inherit|initial|unset;

Property values:

  • length: It sets a fixed value defined in px, cm, pt etc. Negative values are also allowed. Its default value is 0px.
  • percentage: It is same as length but it set the size in terms of percentage of the window size.
  • auto: It is used when it is desired that the browser determines the inset size.
  • initial: It is used to set the value of the inset property to its default value.
  • inherit: It inherits the inset property value from its parent element.
  • unset: It is used to unset the inset property and it is the default value.

Below examples illustrate the inset property in CSS:
