CSS scroll-margin-inline-end property

The scroll-margin-inline-end property is used to set all the scroll margins to the end of the inline dimension of a scroll element at once. The selection of the end side depends upon the writing mode. The end side is the right side for the horizontal-tb writing mode and bottom or top side for the verticle-lr and verticle-rl writing mode respectively.

Where horizontal-tb stands for horizontal top-to-bottom, verticle-rl is the verticle right-to-left, and verticle-lr is the verticle left-to-right.





Property Values: The scroll-margin-inline-end property accepts two properties mentioned above and described below.

  • length: This property refers to the values defined with the length units like em, px, rem, vh, etc.
  • Global_Values: This property refers to the global values like inherit, initial, unset, etc.

Note: The scroll-margin-inline-end does not accept percentage value as the length.

Example: In this example, you can see the effect of scroll-margin-inline-end by scrolling to a point partway between two of the interfaces of the example’s content.
