margin-inline-end

The margin-inline-end CSS property defines the logical inline end margin of an element, which maps to a physical margin depending on the element's writing mode, directionality, and text orientation. In other words, it corresponds to the margin-top, margin-right, margin-bottom or margin-left property depending on the values defined for writing-mode, direction, and text-orientation.

Syntax

/* <length> values */
margin-inline-end: 10px;   /* An absolute length */
margin-inline-end: 1em;    /* relative to the text size */
margin-inline-end: 5%;     /* relative to the nearest block container's width */

/* Keyword values */
margin-inline-end: auto;

/* Global values */
margin-inline-end: inherit;
margin-inline-end: initial;
margin-inline-end: unset;

It relates to margin-block-start, margin-block-end, and margin-inline-start, which define the other margins of the element.

Values

The margin-inline-end property takes the same values as the margin-left property.
