CSS | margin-block Property

  • Last Updated : 26 Apr, 2021

The margin-block property is used to define the logical block end margin of an element. This property helps to place margin depending on the element’s writing mode, directionality, and text orientation.
Syntax: 
 

margin-block-end: length | auto | initial | inherit | unset;

Property values: 
 

  • length: Sets a fixed value defined in px, cm, pt. Negative values as mentioned earlier are allowed. 0 px is the default value.
  • auto: It is used when it is desired that the browser determines the width of the left margin.
  • initial: It is used to set the value of the margin-left property to its default value.
  • inherit: It is used when it is desired that the element inherit the margin-left property of its parent as its own.
  • unset: It is used unset the default margin-block.
