CSS margin on given side

Direction-Specific Properties

CSS allows you to specify a given side to apply margin to. The four properties provided for this purpose are:

  • margin-left
  • margin-right
  • margin-top
  • margin-bottom

The following code would apply a margin of 30 pixels to the left side of the selected div.

#myDiv {
margin-left: 30px;

This is a div tag with margin-Left 30px

The standard margin property can be expanded to specify differing widths to each side of the selected elements. The syntax for doing this is as follows:

The following example applies a zero-width margin to the top of the div, a 10px margin to the right side, a 50px margin to the left side, and a 100px margin to the left side.

#myDiv {
margin: 0 10px 50px 100px;
