CSS inset-block-end Property

The inset-block-end property in CSS is known for defining the logical block and offset of an element which gets mapped to a physical inset on the basis of the writing mode, text orientation, and the directionality of the element.

This property corresponds to the right, top, left, or bottom property which depends on the values defined for the text orientation, direction, and writing mode. This property takes up the same values as the left property.

Syntax

inset-block-end: length | percentage | auto | inherit | initial | unset;

Example: CSS inset-block-end Property

In this example, we are using the inset-block-end property for designing our text in different positions inside the container using different values. Here, we have given the values as 20px 50px. So, our text gets positioned accordingly inside the container.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
	<title>The inset-block-end property in CSS</title>
	<style type="text/css">
		div {
	  background-color: deeppink;
	  width: 120px;
	  height: 120px;
	}	
	.exampleText {
	  writing-mode: vertical-lr;
	  position: relative;
	  inset-block: 20px 50px;
	  background-color: #cff8fc;
	}
	</style>
</head>
<body>
	<div>
		<p class="exampleText">Study Tonight</p>
	</div>
</body>
</html>

Example 2: CSS inset-block-end Property

Here in this second example, we have given the inset-block-end property value as 2.4em 3em. Hence, our text gets aligned and positioned accordingly inside the container.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
	<title>The inset-block-end property in CSS</title>
	<style type="text/css">
		div {
	  background-color: deeppink;
	  width: 120px;

	  position: relative;
	  inset-block: 2.4em 3em;
	  background-color: #cff8fc;

<body>
	<div>
		<p class="exampleText">Study Tonight</p>

Browser Compatibility

The term browser compatibility indicates the ability of a particular website to appear fully functional on several browsers, available in the market. This means that the HTML coding of the website and the scripts on that website must be compatible to run on the browsers. It is of immense importance today when there is a large variety of web browsers available.

Conclusion

This property is applicable to the positioned elements. It is not an inherited property. The percentage value refers to the logical height of the containing block. The computed value for this property is the same as box offsets except for the directions.
