CSS Question

SVG path animation to begin on click of a button

I have an SVG path animation that at the moment is on an infinite loop. I'd like the animation to be invisible until it is triggered by a click event then once the animation is complete (one time, not infinite) the button should no longer work.

I've added a test button but the animation still seems to play as soon as the page is loaded and the button has no effect on it.



$("#button").click(function() {
$('.dashed').toggleClass('path');
});

.dashed{
stroke-dasharray: 10;

}
.path {
stroke-dasharray: 1000;
stroke-dashoffset: 1000;
animation: dash 5s linear infinite;
}

@keyframes dash {
from {
stroke-dashoffset: 1000;
}
to {
stroke-dashoffset: 0;
}
}

<input type="button" id="button" value="Animate" />




Answer

a) empty the class .path but keep it there:

.path { }

b) add the animation properties you removed from the .path into a new css class with replacing 'infinite' from the animation property to '1'.

.path-animation {
     stroke-dasharray: 1000;
     stroke-dashoffset: 1000;
     animation: dash 5s linear 1;
}

c) Use the following jquery to achieve the results you require:

$("#button").click(function() {
   $('.path').attr('class', 'path path-animation');
   //5 secs delay to complete the animation before removing it and disabling the button.
   setTimeout(function() {
      $('.path').attr('class', 'path');
      $("#button").attr("disabled","disabled");
   }, 5000);
});
