CSS | padding-inline Property
  • Last Updated : 19 Jun, 2020

The padding-inline property in CSS is used to define the logical inline 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-inline: 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: This is the same as length and the length is set in terms of percentage of the window size.
  • auto: It is determined by the browsers.
  • initial: It is used to set the value of the padding-inline property to its default value.
  • inherit: It is used when it is desired that the element inherits the padding-inline property of its parent as its own.
  • unset: It is used unset the default padding-inline.

Below example illustrate the padding-inline property in CSS:
