-webkit-mask-repeat-x

This article needs a technical review. How you can help.

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

Syntax

/* Keyword values */
-webkit-mask-repeat-x: repeat;
-webkit-mask-repeat-x: no-repeat;
-webkit-mask-repeat-x: space;
-webkit-mask-repeat-x: round;

/* Multiple values */
-webkit-mask-repeat-x: repeat, no-repeat, space;

/* Global values */
-webkit-mask-repeat-x: inherit;
-webkit-mask-repeat-x: initial;
-webkit-mask-repeat-x: unset;

Values

repeat
The mask image is repeated both horizontally and vertically.
no-repeat
The mask image is not repeated; only one copy of the mask image is drawn. The remainder of the masked element's content is not displayed.
repeat
The mask image is repeated both horizontally and vertically.
space
The image is repeated as much as possible without clipping. The first and last images are pinned to either side of the element, and whitespace is distributed evenly between the images. The mask-position property is ignored unless only one image can be displayed without clipping. The only case where clipping happens using space is when there isn't enough room to display one image.
round
As the allowed space increases in size, the repeated images will stretch (leaving no gaps) until there is room for another one to be added. When the next image is added, all of the current ones compress to allow room. Example: An image with an original width of 260px, repeated three times, might stretch until each repetition is 300px wide, and then another image will be added. They will then compress to 225px.

Formal syntax

repeat | no-repeat | space | round

Examples

.exampleone {
  -webkit-mask-image: url('mask.png');
  -webkit-mask-repeat-x: repeat;
}

.exampletwo {
  -webkit-mask-image: url('mask.png');
  -webkit-mask-repeat-x: no-repeat;
}

Multiple mask image support

You can specify a different <repeat-style> for each mask image, separated by commas:

.examplethree {
  -webkit-mask-image: url('mask1.png'), url('mask2.png');
  -webkit-mask-repeat-x: repeat, space;
} 

Each image is matched with the corresponding repeat style, from first specified to last.
