    border-image-repeat

    Summary

    The border-image-repeat CSS property defines how the middle part of a border image is handled so that it can match the size of the border. It has a one-value syntax that describes the behavior of all the sides, and a two-value syntax that sets a different value for the horizontal and vertical behavior.

    Syntax

    Formal syntax: [ stretch | repeat | round ]{1,2}  
    border-image-repeat: type                      /* One-value syntax */       E.g. border-image-value: stretch;
    border-image-repeat: horizontal vertical       /* Two-value syntax */       E.g. border-image-width: round space;
    
    border-image-repeat: inherit
    

    Values

    type
    One of the stretch, repeat, round, or space keywords denoting how the image is treated both horizontally and vertically.
    horizontal
    One of the stretch, repeat, round, or space keywords denoting how the image is treated horizontally.
    vertical
    One of the stretch, repeat, round, or space keywords denoting how the image is treated vertically.
    stretch
    Keyword indicating that the image must be stretched to fill the gap between the two borders.
    repeat
    Keyword indicating that the image must be repeated until it fills the gap between the two borders.
    round
    Keyword indicating that the image must be repeated until it fills the gap between the two borders. If the image doesn't fit after being repeated for an integral number of times, the image is rescaled to fit.
    space
    Keyword indicating that the image must be tiled to fill the area. If the image doesn't fill the area with a whole number of tiles, the extra space is distributed around the tiles.
    inherit
    Keyword indicating that all four values are inherited from their parents' calculated element value.
