CSS3 – Simple transistion effect

With CSS3, we could make simple animation without any use of Javascript. The following is an example which created a mouse hover effect on a div.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>CSS3 - Simple transistion effect</title>
  <style type="text/css">
    #eureka {
      background-color: red;
      width: 200px;
      height: 200px;
      -webkit-transition: background-color 0.5s ease-in-out, width 0.5s ease-in-out;
      -moz-transition: background-color 0.5s ease-in-out, width 0.5s ease-in-out;
      -o-transition: background-color 0.5s ease-in-out, width 0.5s ease-in-out;
      -ms-transition: background-color 0.5s ease-in-out, width 0.5s ease-in-out;
      transition: background-color 0.5s ease-in-out, width 0.5s ease-in-out;
    }

    #eureka:hover {
      background-color: blue;
      width: 400px;
    }
  </style>
</head>
<body>
  <div id="eureka"></div>
</body>
</html>

 

You can also use the label all to replace each CSS properties if you want to make all of them as transition effect.

-webkit-transition: all 0.5s ease-in-out;
-moz-transition: all 0.5s ease-in-out;
-o-transition: all 0.5s ease-in-out;
-ms-transition: all 0.5s ease-in-out;
transition: all 0.5s ease-in-out;

 

For the easing input, there is a few options and you can refer to w3 specification. Here are some examples.

  • ease
  • linear
  • ease-in
  • ease-out
  • ease-in-out

 

Done =)
