CSS scroll-margin-inline Property

  • Last Updated : 07 Sep, 2020

The scroll-margin-inline property is used to set all the scroll margins to the start and end of a scroll element at once. This property is shorthand for the scroll-margin-inline-start and scroll-margin-inline-end property. The selection of the start and end sides depends upon the writing mode. The start side and end side are left and right sides respectively for horizontal-tb writing mode.

  • Where horizontal-tb stands for horizontal top-to-bottom.

Similarly, start side and end side are the top and bottom sides respectively for verticle-rl or verticle-lr writing mode.

  • Where verticle-rl is the verticle right to left and verticle-lr is the verticle left-to-right.
