Css and jQuery: How do I trigger the repositioning of a CSS3-animated element back to where it was before the animation?

Tags: jquery,css,css3,css-animations

Problem :


Le Code:

$j(document).bind('click', function() { 
    $j("#test").css({ bottom:0px })

Looking in the inspector, even when the element is at the top of the page, it still says it's bottom value is 0.

Maybe I need to play the animation in reverse somehow? or play a different animation? (Using Bottom %, rather than top %)

Solution :

As you were thinking you can make a second keyframe block to reset it back to the bottom:

@-webkit-keyframes reset_to_bottom {
    0%, 100% {
        top: auto;
        bottom: 0;
        z-index: 1000000;
        opacity: 0.5;

then have your jQuery change the animation name:

    '-webkit-animation-name': 'reset_to_bottom'


When using -webkit-animation-fill-mode: forwards; forwards will maintain the last keyframe styles, so top:0% is still set which is why bottom:0 was having no effect

for fun...switch between animation's each click


$j(document).bind('click', function() {
    if ($j("#test").css('-webkit-animation-name') == "slide_to_top") {
        $j("#test").css({'-webkit-animation-name': 'reset_to_bottom'});
    } else {
        $j("#test").css({'-webkit-animation-name': 'slide_to_top'});
