CSS background-repeat

Demo

The CSS background-repeat property is used to specify if a background image repeats (tiles) or not, and how it should repeat.

Syntax

background-repeat: <value>

Possible Values

  • repeat (background repeats both horizontally and vertically)
  • repeat-x (background repeats horizontally only)
  • repeat-y (background repeats vertically only)
  • no-repeat (background is not repeated)

In addition, all CSS properties also accept the following CSS-wide keyword values as the sole component of their property value:

initial
Represents the value specified as the property's initial value.
inherit
Represents the computed value of the property on the element's parent.
unset
This value acts as either inherit or initial, depending on whether the property is inherited or not. In other words, it sets all properties to their parent value if they are inheritable or to their initial value if not inheritable.
