CSS scroll-padding-block Property

  • Last Updated : 09 Sep, 2020
Geek Week

The scroll-padding-block property is used to set all the scroll padding to the start and end of a scroll container or element in the block dimension at once. This property is shorthand for the scroll-padding-block-start and scroll-padding-block-end property.

Hence, the scroll-padding values represent outsets that define the scroll snap area that is used for snapping the box to the snap port. 


scroll-padding-block: keyword_values

/* Or */

scroll-padding-block: length_values
/* Or */

scroll-padding-block: Global_Values

Property Values: This property accepts three-properties mentioned above and described below:

  • length_values: This property refers to the values defined with length units. Ex: px, em, vh, etc.
  • keyword_values: This property refers to the keyword_values defined with units like auto. Generally, this will be set to 0px by default but it can be a non-zero value as well if the non-zero value is more appropriate.
  • Global_Values: This property refers to the global values like inherit, initial, unset, etc.

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