This article is about the definition of the block states. For the files that determine block models, see Models § Block states.
This page lists blocks and their associated block states. For a list of block states and their associated blocks, see Java Edition data values § Block states

Block states (also known as block properties)[1] are extra pieces of data that further define a block, such as how it appears or behaves.

In Bedrock Edition, there're also aux values (also known as Metadata) to define a block. Aux values are in the format of binary flags, which basically match the block states one-to-one. And they are accesible in decimal number in commands. However, aux values are intended to be deprecate, and newly added blocks or block states no longer support aux values.

If bit 0x8 is set, this fluid is "falling" and spreads only downward. At this level, the lower bits are essentially ignored, since this block is then at its highest fluid level. This level is equal to the falling lava above, equal to 8 plus the level of the non-falling lava above it.

The lower three bits are the fluid block's level. 0 is the highest fluid level (not necessarily filling the block - this depends on the neighboring fluid blocks above each upper corner of the block). Data values increase as the fluid level of the block drops: 1 is the next highest, 2 lower, on through 7, the lowest fluid level. Along a line on a flat plane, lava drops one level per meter in the Nether and two everywhere else. So in the End and Overworld, only 2, 4 and 6 are used.

If bit 0x8 is set, this fluid is "falling" and spreads only downward. At this level, the lower bits are essentially ignored, since this block is then at its highest fluid level. This level is equal to the falling water above, equal to 8 plus the level of the non-falling lava above it.

The lower three bits are the fluid block's level. 0 is the highest fluid level (not necessarily filling the block - this depends on the neighboring fluid blocks above each upper corner of the block). Data values increase as the fluid level of the block drops: 1 is the next highest, 2 lower, on through 7, the lowest fluid level. Along a line on a flat plane, water drops one level per meter.

History[]

This section is missing information about the history in Bedrock Edition. 
Please expand the section to include this information. Further details may exist on the talk page.
Java Edition
1.814w11aAdded block states. Only used in the game engine, not saved in world files or used in commands yet.
14w26aSwitched to mostly using block states in the code.
1.1116w32aEnabled the use of block states in commands.
1.1317w47aMany block states got added, changed and removed due to the Flattening.
Added the debug stick, which is an item used to edit the block states of blocks.
  1. Sometimes they're different: A block state may refer to a state of the block type, also known as a block permutation in Bedrock Edition, e.g. a south facing pressed button. While a block property refers to a specific property used to define a block state, e.g. facing property of button block.
