Definition and Usage
scroll-margin-block-start property specifies the distance in block direction, between the snap position and the container .
This means that when you stop scrolling, the scrolling will quickly adjust and stop at a specified distance in block direction, between the snap position at the start of the child element and the container.
Block direction is where the next line is put compared to the position of an existing line, and this is also how tags with CSS
display: block; like <p> and <div> tags are laid out on a page. Block direction is dependent on the written language, i.e. Mongolian where new lines are laid out left to right which makes block direction left to right, while pages in English have a downward block direction. Block direction can be defined with CSS property
Snap position is the position on the child element where it snaps into place in the container when you stop scrolling.
Note: This property only works if the scroll-snap-align property is set to 'start' for the block direction.
To see the effect from the
scroll-margin-block-start property, the
scroll-snap-align properties must be set on the child elements, and the
scroll-snap-type property must be set on the parent element.
scroll-margin-block properties are very similar to CSS properties
scroll-margin-right, but the
scroll-margin-inline properties are dependent on block and line directions.
