HTMLElement: animationend event

The animationend event is fired when a CSS Animation has completed. If the animation aborts before reaching completion, such as if the element is removed from the DOM or the animation is removed from the element, the animationend event is not fired.

Bubbles Yes
Cancelable No
Interface AnimationEvent
Event handler property onanimationend

Examples

This example gets an element that's being animated and listens for the animationend event:

const animated = document.querySelector('.animated');

animated.addEventListener('animationend', () => {
  console.log('Animation ended');
});

The same, but using the onanimationend event handler property:

const animated = document.querySelector('.animated');

animated.onanimationend = () => {
  console.log('Animation ended');
};

animation.addEventListener('animationstart', () => {
  animationEventLog.textContent = `${animationEventLog.textContent}'animation started' `;
});

animation.addEventListener('animationiteration', () => {
  iterationCount++;
  animationEventLog.textContent = `${animationEventLog.textContent}'animation iterations: ${iterationCount}' `;
});

animation.addEventListener('animationend', () => {
  animationEventLog.textContent = `${animationEventLog.textContent}'animation ended'`;
  animation.classList.remove('active');
  applyAnimation.textContent = "Activate animation";

animation.addEventListener('animationcancel', () => {
  animationEventLog.textContent = `${animationEventLog.textContent}'animation canceled'`;
});

applyAnimation.addEventListener('click', () => {
  animation.classList.toggle('active');
  animationEventLog.textContent = '';
  iterationCount = 0;
