HTML | DOM animationiteration Event

  • Last Updated : 24 Jul, 2019

The animationiteration event occurs when a CSS animation is repeated.

The animation will only be played one-time if the CSS animation-iteration-count property is set to “1”. The animation needs to run more than once for this event to fire.

Attention reader! Don’t stop learning now. Get hold of all the important HTML concepts with the Web Design for Beginners | HTML  course.

Events that can occur when a CSS animation plays:

  • animationstart: occurs when the CSS animation has started.
  • animationiteration: occurs when the CSS animation is repeated.
  • animationend: occurs when the CSS animation has completed.


  • Code for Chrome, Safari and Opera
    object.addEventListener("webkitAnimationIteration", myScript);
  • Standard syntax:
    object.addEventListener("animationiteration", myScript);


<!DOCTYPE html>
        #div {
            width: 100%;
            height: 100px;
            background: green;
            position: relative;
            font-size: 40px;
        /* Chrome, Safari, Opera */
        @-webkit-keyframes mymove {

                top: 0px;
            to {

        @keyframes mymove {
