Summary

The animation-name CSS property specifies a list of animations that should be applied to the selected element. Each name indicates a {{ cssxref("@keyframes") }} at-rule that defines the property values for the animation sequence.

It is often convenient to use the shorthand property {{ cssxref("animation") }} to set all animation properties at once.

  • {{ xref_cssinitial() }} {{cssinitial("animation-name")}}
  • Applies to all elements, and {{ cssxref("::before") }} and {{ cssxref("::after") }} pseudo-elements
  • {{ xref_cssinherited() }} no
  • Media {{ Xref_cssvisual() }}
  • {{ xref_csscomputed() }} as specified
  • {{ xref_cssanimatable() }} no
  • {{ xref_csscanonicalorder() }} the unique non-ambiguous order defined by the formal grammar

Syntax

Formal syntax: {{csssyntax("animation-name")}}
animation-name: none
animation-name: test_05
animation-name: -specific
animation-name: sliding-vertically

animation-name: test1
animation-name: test1, animation4
animation-name: none, -moz-specific, sliding

Values

none
Is a special keyword denoting no keyframes. It can be used to deactivate an animation without changing the ordering of the other identifiers, or to deactivate animations coming from the cascade.
IDENT
A string identifying the animation. 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.

Examples

See CSS animations for examples.
