The scroll-snap-destination CSS property defines the position in x and y coordinates within the scroll container's visual viewport which element snap points align with.

/* <position> value */
scroll-snap-destination: 400px 600px;

/* Global values */
scroll-snap-destination: inherit;
scroll-snap-destination: initial;
scroll-snap-destination: unset;
Initial value 0px 0px
Applies to scroll containers
Inherited no
Percentages relative to same axis of the padding-box of the scroll container
Media interactive
Computed value as specified, but with relative lengths converted into absolute lengths
Animation type a position
Canonical order the unique non-ambiguous order defined by the formal grammar



Specifies the offset of the snap destination from the start edge of the scroll container’s visual viewport. The first value gives the x coordinate of the snap destination, the second value its y coordinate.

Formal syntax


<position> = [ [ left | center | right ] || [ top | center | bottom ] | [ left | center | right | <length-percentage> ] [ top | center | bottom | <length-percentage> ]? | [ [ left | right ] <length-percentage> ] && [ [ top | bottom ] <length-percentage> ] ]

<length-percentage> = <length> | <percentage>

<div id="container">
    <p>At coordinate (0, 0)</p>
    <div class="scrollContainer destination0">

    <p>At coordinate (25, 0)</p>
    <div class="scrollContainer destination25">
