The transition property in CSS is used to make some transition effects. The transition is the combination of four properties which are listed below: 

  • transition-property
  • transition-duration
  • transition-timing-function
  • transition-delay

Note: The transition effect can be defined in two states (hover and active) using pseudo-classes like hover or: active or classes dynamically set by using JavaScript.


transition: transition-property transition-duration 
transition-timing-function transition-delay; 

Note: If any of the values are not defined then the browser assumes the default values.

Property Values: 

  • transition-property: It specifies the CSS properties to which a transition effect should be applied.
  • transition-duration: It specifies the length of time a transition animation should take to complete.
  • transition-timing-function: It specifies the speed of transition.
  • transition-delay: It specifies the transition delay or time when the transition starts.

Example: In this example, we are using the above-explained property.


<!DOCTYPE html>
        CSS transition Property
        div {
            width: 100px;
            height: 270px;
            background: green;
            transition: width 5s ease-in .2s;
            display: inline-block;
        div:hover {
            width: 300px;
<body style="text-align:center;">
    <h2>Transition Property</h2>
