CSS | padding-block-start Property

  • Last Updated : 25 Jun, 2020

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

Syntax:

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

Property values:

  • 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 the length but the size is set in terms of percentage of the window size.
  • auto: It is used when it is desired that the browser determines the padding-block-start size.
  • initial: It is used to set the value of the padding-block-start property to its default value.
  • inherit: It is used when it is desired that the element inherits the padding-block-start property of its parent as its own.
  • unset: It is used unset the default padding-block-start.
