CSS Transition Shorthand Property

While we believe that this content benefits our community, we have not yet thoroughly reviewed it. If you have any suggestions for improvements, please let us know by clicking the “report an issue“ button at the bottom of the tutorial.

Shift between two CSS values in style and save time with the transition shorthand:

transition: margin-top 1s ease-in-out 0.5s;

Is equivalent to this:

transition-property: margin-top;
transition-duration: 1s;
transition-timing-function: ease-in-out;
transition-delay: 0.5s;

Use all as the property to affect all values at once. Define multiple transitions in the shorthand using comas:

.box {
  transition: margin-top 1s linear,
  margin-bottom 0.5s cubic-bezier(0,1.18,.87,.32),
  margin-left 2s;
}
