Definition and Usage

The animationstart event occurs when a CSS animation has started to play.

For more information about CSS Animations, see our tutorial on CSS3 Animations.

When a CSS animation plays, there are three events that can occur:

  • animationstart - occurs when the CSS animation has started
  • animationiteration - occurs when the CSS animation is repeated
  • animationend - occurs when the CSS animation has completed

Browser Support

The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the event.

Numbers followed by "webkit" or "moz" specify the first version that worked with a prefix.

Event
animationstart 4.0 webkit 10.0 16.0
5.0 moz
4.0 webkit 15.0 webkit

Note: For Chrome, Safari and Opera, use the webkitAnimationStart prefix.

object.addEventListener("webkitAnimationStart", myScript);  // Code for Chrome, Safari and Opera
