Summary

The transition-property CSS property is used to specify the names of CSS properties to which a transition effect should be applied.

Note: The set of properties that can be animated is subject to change; as such, you should avoid including any properties in the list that don't currently animate, because someday they might, causing unexpected results.

If you specify a shorthand property (for example, {{ cssxref("background") }}, all of its longhand sub-properties that can be animated will be.

  • {{ Xref_cssinitial() }}: {{ Cssxref("all") }}
  • Applies to: all elements, {{ 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 grammar: none | [ all | IDENT ] [ , [ all | IDENT ] ]*
transition-property: none
transition-property: all
transition-property: test_05
transition-property: -specific
transition-property: sliding-vertically

transition-property: test1
transition-property: test1, animation4
transition-property: all, height, all
transition-property: all, -moz-specific, sliding

Values

none
No properties will transition.
all
All properties that can have an animated transition will do so.
IDENT
A string identifying the property to which a transition effect should be applied when its value changes. 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

There are several examples of CSS transitions included in the main CSS transitions article.
