  • // get the element (the one being transitioned or any parent/grandparent all the way to document.body)
    var someElement = document.getElementById('foo'); // or document.querySelector('.foo');
    someElement.addEventListener('endtransition', function(ev) {

    var srcElement = ev.srcElement;

  • maybe I didn't write my question properly.

    My problem is that there is no "endtransition" event for UI elements in windows store apps.

    I'm looking for any replacement event or method to implement it.

  • Open an HTML app in Visual studio
    Look under references and find Windows Library for JavaScript 1.0
    Open base.js inside it...

    Search for: "function executeElementTransition"

    They do:


    "transitionend", onTransitionEnd, false);

    So I don't know what you mean by its not implemented...

    Alternatively you could use setTimeout(function, 300) to run code 300ms from now (not really timed in sync but close enough for most problems)...

  • yes you are right.

    my problem was that I was using "endtransition" but it is "transitionend"

    now it works.

    Thank you
