Summary

The animation-play-state CSS property determines whether an animation is running or paused. You can query this property's value to determine whether or not the animation is currently running; in addition, you can set its value 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.

  • {{ xref_cssinitial() }}: running
  • Applies to: all elements, and {{ cssxref("::before") }} and {{ cssxref("::after") }} pseudo-elements
  • {{ xref_cssinherited() }}: no
