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
  • Media {{xref_cssvisual}}
  • {{xref_csscomputed}} as specified
  • {{xref_cssanimatable}} no
  • {{xref_csscanonicalorder}} the unique non-ambiguous order defined by the formal grammar
