The scroll-padding-block-start property is used to set all the scroll padding to the start of a scroll container or element in the block dimension at once. The start side is the top side for horizontal-tb writing mode and right or left side for vertical-rl or vertical-lr writing mode respectively. Where horizontal-tb stands for horizontal top-to-bottom and vertical-rl or vertical-lr stands for vertical right-to-left and vertical left-to-right respectively.


scroll-padding-block-start: keyword_values


scroll-padding-block-start: length_values


scroll-padding-block-start: Global_Values

Property values: This property accepts three properties mentioned above and described below.
