The overflow-clip-margin CSS property determines how far outside its bounds an element with overflow: clip may be painted before being clipped.


overflow-clip-margin: 20px;
overflow-clip-margin: 1em;

/* Global values */
overflow-clip-margin: inherit;
overflow-clip-margin: initial;
overflow-clip-margin: unset;

The overflow-block property is specified as a length, negative values are not allowed.

If the element does not have overflow: clip then this property will be ignored.
