padding-inline-end

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The padding-inline-end CSS property defines the logical inline end padding of an element, which maps to a physical padding depending on the element's writing mode, directionality, and text orientation. It corresponds to the padding-toppadding-rightpadding-bottom, or padding-left property depending on the values defined for writing-mode, direction, and text-orientation.

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

Syntax

/* <length> values */
padding-inline-end: 10px;   /* An absolute length */
padding-inline-end: 1em;    /* A length relative to the text size */

/* <percentage> value */
padding-inline-end: 5%;     /* A padding relative to the block container's width */

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