CSS Transitions Transition (longhand)



div {
  height: 100px;
  width: 100px;
  border: 1px solid;
  transition-property: height, width;
  transition-duration: 1s, 500ms;
  transition-timing-function: linear;
  transition-delay: 0s, 1s;
div:hover {
  height: 200px;
  width: 200px;


  • transition-property: Specifies the CSS properties the transition effect is for. In this case, the div will expand both horizontally and vertically when hovered.
  • transition-duration: Specifies the length of time a transition takes to complete. In the above example, the height and width transitions will take 1 second and 500 milliseconds respectively.
  • transition-timing-function: Specifies the speed curve of the transition effect. A linear value indicates the transition will have the same speed from start to finish.
  • transition-delay: Specifies the amount of time needed to wait before the transition effect starts. In this case, the height will start transitioning immediately, whereas the width will wait 1 second.
