CSS scroll-padding-inline Property
The scroll-padding-inline property is used to set all the scroll padding to the start and end of a scroll element or container in the inline dimension at once. This property is shorthand for the scroll-padding-inline-start and scroll-padding-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. Similarly, start and end side are top and bottom sides respectively for vertical-rl or vertical-lr writing mode where horizontal-tb stands for horizontal top-to-bottom, vertical-rl is the vertical right to left and vertical-lr is the vertical left-to-right.
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 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-inline by scrolling to a point partway between the two of the “interfaces” of the example’s content.
