animation-play-state

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the spec changes.

Summary

The animation-play-state CSS property determines whether an animation is running or paused. This can be queried to determine whether or not the animation is currently running. In addition, its value can be set to pause and resume playback of an animation.

Resuming a paused animation will start the animation from where it left off at the time it was paused, rather than starting over from the beginning of the animation sequence.

Syntax

animation-play-state: running;
animation-play-state: paused;

animation-play-state: paused, running, running;

Values

running
The animation is currently playing.
paused
The animation is currently paused.
