CSS | padding-block Property

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

Syntax:

padding-block: length|percentage|auto|inherit|initial|unset;

Property values:



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