The scroll-margin-left property is used to set all the scroll margins to the left of an element at once. The value specified for the scroll-margin-left determines how much of the page that is primarily outside the support should remain visible.

Hence, the scroll-margin-left values represent outsets that define the scroll snap area that is used for snapping this box to the support. 

Syntax:

scroll-margin-left: length
/* Or */
scroll-margin-left: Global_Values

Property values: This property accepts two-properties mentioned above and described below:

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

Note: scroll-margin-left doesn’t accept percentage value as the length.

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