ViewTransition: skipTransition() method

Limited availability

This feature is not Baseline because it does not work in some of the most widely-used browsers.

The skipTransition() method of the ViewTransition interface skips the animation part of the view transition, but doesn't skip running the document.startViewTransition() callback that updates the DOM.

Syntax

js
skipTransition()

Parameters

None.

Return value

undefined.

Examples

js
// start new view transition
const transition = document.startViewTransition(() => displayNewImage());

// skip the animation and just update the DOM
transition.skipTransition();
