CSSKeyframesRule.deleteRule()

The deleteRule() method of the CSSKeyframeRule interface deletes the CSSKeyFrameRule that matches the specified keyframe selector.

Syntax

CSSKeyframesRule.deleteRule(select);

Parameters

select

A CSSOMString which contains the keyframe selector of the rule to be deleted, which must be:

  • a comma-separated list of percentage values between 0% and 100%;
  • or, the keywords from or to

Note that the number and order of the values in the specified keyframe selector must match those of the targeted keyframe rule(s). White-space is disregarded.

Return value

None.

Example

The CSS includes a keyframes at-rule. This will be the first CSSRule returned by document.styleSheets[0].cssRules. myRules[0] returns a CSSKeyframesRule object. Returning the cssRules property would return a CSSRuleList containing two rules.

After deleting a rule with deleteRule() the cssRules property returns a CSSRuleList containing one rule.

@keyframes slidein {
  from {
    transform: translateX(0%);
  }

  to {
    transform: translateX(100%);
  }
}
let myRules = document.styleSheets[0].cssRules;
let keyframes = myRules[0]; // a CSSKeyframesRule
keyframes.deleteRule('to');
console.log(keyframes.cssRules); // a CSSRuleList object with one rule
