Controlling CSS Animations and Transitions with JavaScript

Zach wrote to me telling me that, as a frequenter on coding forums like Stack Overflow, he sees the questions come up all the time about controlling CSS animations with JavaScript, and proved it with a bunch of links. I've had this on my list to write about for way too long, so I was happy to let Zach dig into it and write up this comprehensive tutorial. Web designers sometimes believe that animating in CSS is more difficult than animating in JavaScript. Using pointer-events with Media Queries. We all know that there are a number of ways we can modify layout based on CSS media queries -- hell, we can even animate properties between media queries.

Using pointer-events with Media Queries

One bit of outside the box thinking with media queries is deals with pointer-events. Using the pointer-events property, we can also enable and disable some functionality with CSS based on media query state! The scenario is one that's present in the current implementation of the MDN redesign. On the left you see article content, on the right you see a table of contents: Completely.js. Labs by Big Room Studios. CSS3 Animation and the JavaScript API. I previously wrote about CSS3 Animation Events in June 2012 but the browsers have moved on and it makes sense to revisit the topic as part of this series.

CSS3 Animation and the JavaScript API

While CSS3 animations provide reasonable control, it’s often necessary to add interaction or define a specific sequence of keyframe sets which play one after the other. For example, you could implement Dragon’s Lair in CSS3; an animation is played in response to the user’s keyboard or joystick movement. Event Types There are three types of event you can capture on an animated element: animationstart — fires when an animation starts for the first timeanimationiteration — fires at the start of every iteration (except for the first one)animationend — fires when the animation is complete (assuming it ever does). Cross-Browser Compatibility The three event types are supported by Firefox, IE10 and Opera 12.

Therefore, you must currently define event listeners for both sets of browsers: The Event Object View the CSS3 Animation Events demonstration… jQuery Plugin Registry.

CSS3 Animation Property Basics. In the second part of this series about CSS3 animations we’ll take a detailed look at defining keyframes and element properties.

CSS3 Animation Property Basics

Defining Keyframes In the previous lesson we discussed keyframes; a point within the animation where a known state is specified. Let’s create a simple set of keyframes where the background-color changes from blue to red to green to purple and back to blue again. First we need to define a @keyframes rule somewhere in our stylesheet (it doesn’t matter where): I’ve given the set a name of ‘colorchange’. Next, we define individual keyframes at percentage points throughout the duration of our animation: While we’ve only defined background-color, you can list any number of CSS properties (assuming it’s possible to animate them).
