Experimental: This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The setKeyframes() method of the KeyframeEffect interface replaces the keyframes that make up the affected KeyframeEffect with a new set of keyframes.

Syntax

existingKeyframeEffect.setKeyframes(keyframes);

Parameters

keyframes

A keyframe object or null. If set to null, the keyframes are replaced with a sequence of empty keyframes.

More information about a keyframe object's format.

Return value

Void.

Exceptions

Exception Explanation
TypeError One or more of the frames were not of the correct type of object, the keyframes were not loosely sorted by offset, or a keyframe existed with an offset of less than 0 or more than 1.

Note: If the keyframes cannot be processed or are malformed, the KeyframeEffect's keyframes are not modified.

existingKeyframeEffect.setKeyframes(
[
  { color: 'blue' },

  ]
