Is there any way to animate an ellipsis with CSS animations

0 votes

I'm trying to make an ellipsis animate, and I was wondering if CSS animations could do it...

So it might be like

Loading...
Loading..
Loading.
Loading...
Loading..

And basically just continue like that. Any ideas?

You might try to time each ellipsis character using the animation-delay parameter. In this scenario, I've placed each ellipsis character in its own span class> so that I can animate them independently.

I produced a demo that isn't great, but it shows what I mean.

The code from my example:

HTML

Loading<span class="one">.</span><span class="two">.</span><span class="three">.</span>​

CSS

.one {
    opacity: 0;
    -webkit-animation: dot 1.3s infinite;
    -webkit-animation-delay: 0.0s;
    animation: dot 1.3s infinite;
    animation-delay: 0.0s;
}

.two {
    opacity: 0;
    -webkit-animation: dot 1.3s infinite;
    -webkit-animation-delay: 0.2s;
    animation: dot 1.3s infinite;
    animation-delay: 0.2s;
}

.three {
    opacity: 0;
    -webkit-animation: dot 1.3s infinite;
    -webkit-animation-delay: 0.3s;
    animation: dot 1.3s infinite;
    animation-delay: 0.3s;
}

@-webkit-keyframes dot {
    0% {
        opacity: 0;
    }
    50% {
        opacity: 0;
    }
    100% {
        opacity: 1;
    }
}

@keyframes dot {
    0% {
        opacity: 0;
    }
    50% {
        opacity: 0;
    }
    100% {
        opacity: 1;
    }
}
