Target body {background-image)

Go to solution Solved by OSUblake,

Recommended Posts

I am working on a program that transitions the background image depending the level the player is on.  The line of code is:


document.body.style.backgroundImage =`url(/dist/asset.round${round}.png)`;

I would like the background to fade in  or out to reveal the next level's background image. 

I am really not picky about the transition, I just want to get rid of the abruptness of the change.


How do I target the background image to alter opacity, duration 2?

I am working in Javascript.

Welcome to the forums @Sunflair


You really can't fade something if you've removed it. 😉


You would need to stack your images on top of each other and then you can animate between them, kind of like in this demo.

If I were working with regular images, I could do it. I don't know how to 'touch' background image in the Body.

You'll need to use regular images as you can't animate the background image of the body like that.
