Animation events

The visual appeal of digital signage applications can be greatly enhanced with jSignage due to the possibility to add different types of animation events: effects, transitions or custom animations.


jSignage effects can be used to improve the way a layer appears (in effect) or disappears (out effect) from the scene.

// add fade in and fade out effects to all the images in the document
$('image').fadeIn({ dur: '0.5s' }).fadeOut();

// add an SVG clock to the document with a fade in animation
    $.animation ({ href: 'clock.svg', id : 'clk1' }).fadeIn({ dur: '3s' })

See also how to create new effects with jSignage.


jSignage transitions are applied between consecutive items of a playlist or slideshow. A transition is a combination of an out-effect on the current slide and an in-effect on the next one.

// create a playlist of images with a cross-fade transition between them and add it to the document
    data: [ 'A.jpg', 'B.jpg', 'C.jpg', 'D.jpg' ],
    defaultTransition : $.crossFade( )
}).addTo( 'svg' );
