The animation-delay property in CSS is used to specify the delay for the start of an animation. The animation-delay value is defined in seconds (s) or milliseconds (ms).
- time: This value is optional. It is used to define the number of seconds (s) or milliseconds (ms) to wait before the animation will start, that is the amount of time for which the animation will be delayed. The default value is 0. Negative values are allowed. If a negative value is used, the animation will start as if it had already been playing for N seconds/milliseconds.
- initial: This value is used to set the property to its default value.
- inherit: This value is used to inherits the property from its parent element.
Example: HTML program to illustrate the CSS animation-delay property.
