MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:

-webkit-transition-property Redirect 1

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the spec changes.


The transition-property CSS property is used to specify the names of CSS properties to which a transition effect should be applied.

Note: The set of properties that can be animated is subject to change; as such, you should avoid including any properties in the list that don't currently animate, because someday they might, causing unexpected results.

If you specify a shorthand property (for example, background, all of its longhand sub-properties that can be animated will be.


/* Keyword values */
transition-property: none;
transition-property: all;
transition-property: test_05;
transition-property: -specific;
transition-property: sliding-vertically;

transition-property: test1;
transition-property: test1, animation4;
transition-property: all, height, all;
transition-property: all, -moz-specific, sliding;

/* Global values */
transition-property: inherit;
transition-property: initial;
transition-property: unset;


No properties will transition.
All properties that can have an animated transition will do so.
A string identifying the property to which a transition effect should be applied when its value changes. This identifier is composed by case-insensitive letter a to z, numbers 0 to 9, an underscore (_) or a dash(-). The first non-dash character must be a letter (that is no number at the beginning of it, even preceded by a dash). Also two dashes are forbidden at the beginning of the identifier.

Formal syntax

There are several examples of CSS transitions included in the main CSS transitions article.
