CSS3 Loading elements – part 2

We received a lot of feedback on this article CSS3 Loading elements, so we decided to prepare the second part of this article. Where we will create 4 new loading elements. All of them use pure CSS3 animation and don’t use images. Let’s review them.

So, lets start


Step 1. HTML

You can see here four elements – our new ‘loading’ elements. Every of them have a very easy structure.

<div class="main_body">
<div class="element">
<div class="loading1">
</div>
</div>
<div class="element">
<div class="loading2">
<div></div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="element">
<div class="loading3">
<div>loading..</div>
<div></div>
<div></div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="element">
<div class="loading4">
</div>
</div>
</div>

Step 2. CSS

Now, the most interesting step, I will give you CSS styles of every ‘loading’ element. Welcome to check styles of the first one:

.loading1 {
background-color: #000;
width: 90px;
height: 90px;
border: 30px solid #FFF;
border-right-width: 0;
border-radius: 50%;
box-shadow: 0 0 10px 5px #009933;
/* css3 animation */
-webkit-animation: anim1 1s linear infinite;
-moz-animation: anim1 1s linear infinite;
-ms-animation: anim1 1s linear infinite;
-o-animation: anim1 1s linear infinite;
animation: anim1 1s linear infinite;
}
/* css3 keyframes - animation 1 */
@-webkit-keyframes anim1 {
from { -webkit-transform: rotateX(45deg) rotateZ(0deg); }
50% { -webkit-transform: rotateX(0deg) rotateZ(180deg); }
to { -webkit-transform: rotateX(45deg) rotateZ(360deg); }
}
@-moz-keyframes anim1 {
from { -moz-transform: rotateX(45deg) rotateZ(0deg); }
50% { -moz-transform: rotateX(0deg) rotateZ(180deg); }
to { -moz-transform: rotateX(45deg) rotateZ(360deg); }
}
@-ms-keyframes anim1 {
from { -ms-transform: rotateX(45deg) rotateZ(0deg); }
50% { -ms-transform: rotateX(0deg) rotateZ(180deg); }
to { -ms-transform: rotateX(45deg) rotateZ(360deg); }
}
@-o-keyframes anim1 {
from { -o-transform: rotateX(45deg) rotateZ(0deg); }
50% { -o-transform: rotateX(0deg) rotateZ(180deg); }
to { -o-transform: rotateX(45deg) rotateZ(360deg); }
}
@keyframes anim1 {
from { transform: rotateX(45deg) rotateZ(0deg); }
50% { transform: rotateX(0deg) rotateZ(180deg); }
to { transform: rotateX(45deg) rotateZ(360deg); }
}

As you can see – we used CSS3 animation (with keyframes). This element looks like 3D button, all because of border-right-width: 0. This property emulates a push 3d button. Now, please review styles of our second ‘loading’ element:

.loading2 {
background-color: #009933;
border-radius: 2px;
height: 20px;
margin-top: 60px;
overflow: hidden;
position: relative;
width: 140px;
}
.loading2 > div {
background-color: #FFFFFF;
height: 100%;
width: 0;
/* css3 animation */
-webkit-animation-name:anim2;
-webkit-animation-duration:2.0s;
-webkit-animation-iteration-count:infinite;
-webkit-animation-direction:linear;
-webkit-animation-timing-function:ease;
-moz-animation-name:anim2;
-moz-animation-duration:2.0s;
-moz-animation-iteration-count:infinite;
-moz-animation-direction:linear;
-moz-animation-timing-function:ease;
-ms-animation-name:anim2;
-ms-animation-duration:2.0s;
-ms-animation-iteration-count:infinite;
-ms-animation-direction:linear;
-ms-animation-timing-function:ease;
-o-animation-name:anim2;
-o-animation-duration:2.0s;
-o-animation-iteration-count:infinite;
-o-animation-direction:linear;
-o-animation-timing-function:ease;
animation-name:anim2;
animation-duration:2.0s;
animation-iteration-count:infinite;
animation-direction:linear;
animation-timing-function:ease;
}
/* css3 keyframes - animation 2 */
@-webkit-keyframes anim2 {
from { width: 0; }
50% { width: 100%; }
to { width: 0; }
}
@-moz-keyframes anim2 {
from { width: 0; }
50% { width: 100%; }
to { width: 0; }
}
@-ms-keyframes anim2 {
from { width: 0; }
50% { width: 100%; }
to { width: 0; }
}
@-o-keyframes anim2 {
from { width: 0; }
50% { width: 100%; }
to { width: 0; }
}
@keyframes anim2 {
from { width: 0; }
50% { width: 100%; }
to { width: 0; }
}

This element uses css3 animation with keyframes too, and it looks like loading slider. The next one element:

.loading3 {
border-radius: 50%;
font-size: 20px;
height: 100px;
line-height: 90px;
position: relative;
text-align: center;
width: 100px;
}
.loading3 > div:nth-child(2), .loading3 > div:nth-child(3) {
background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.2);
border: 5px solid #FFF;
border-radius: 50%;
box-shadow: 0 0 5px 0 #009933;
height: 100px;
position: absolute;
top: 0px;
/* set top and bottom border widths to 0 */
border-top-width: 0;
border-bottom-width: 0;
/* css3 animation */
-webkit-animation: anim3 2s linear infinite;
-moz-animation: anim3 2s linear infinite;
-ms-animation: anim3 2s linear infinite;
-o-animation: anim3 2s linear infinite;
animation: anim3 2s linear infinite;
}
.loading3 > div:nth-child(2) {
border-color: #FFF;
left: 0px;
width: 90px;
}
.loading3 > div:nth-child(3) {
border-color: #009933;
left: -5px;
width: 100px;
/* css3 delay */
-webkit-animation-delay:0.5s;
-moz-animation-delay:0.5s;
-ms-animation-delay:0.5s;
-o-animation-delay:0.5s;
animation-delay:0.5s;
}
/* css3 keyframes - animation 3 */
@-webkit-keyframes anim3 {
from { -webkit-transform: rotateY(0deg); }
50% { -webkit-transform: rotateY(180deg); }
to { -webkit-transform: rotateY(360deg); }
}
@-moz-keyframes anim3 {
from { -moz-transform: rotateY(0deg); }
50% { -moz-transform: rotateY(180deg); }
to { -moz-transform: rotateY(360deg); }
}
@-ms-keyframes anim3 {
from { -ms-transform: rotateY(0deg); }
50% { -ms-transform: rotateY(180deg); }
to { -ms-transform: rotateY(360deg); }
}
@-o-keyframes anim3 {
from { -o-transform: rotateY(0deg); }
50% { -o-transform: rotateY(180deg); }
to { -o-transform: rotateY(360deg); }
}
@keyframes anim3 {
from { transform: rotateY(0deg); }
50% { transform: rotateY(180deg); }
to { transform: rotateY(360deg); }
}

This is more interesting element, it looks like two semi-transparent circles in space around the label ‘loading’. We should generate 2 different circles and rotate them in Y coordinate, also we should set delay for the second circle. The last one element:

.loading4 {
background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #EEEEEE;
border-color: #009933;
border-radius: 100%;
border-style: solid;
border-width: 2px 2px 50px;
height: 48px;
position: relative;
width: 96px;
/* css3 animation */
-webkit-animation: anim4 1s linear infinite;
-moz-animation: anim4 2s linear infinite;
-ms-animation: anim4 1s linear infinite;
-o-animation: anim4 1s linear infinite;
animation: anim4 1s linear infinite;
}
.loading4:before {
background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #EEEEEE;
border: 18px solid #009933;
border-radius: 100%;
content: "";
height: 12px;
left: 0;
position: absolute;
top: 50%;
width: 12px;
}
.loading4:after {
background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #009933;
border: 18px solid #EEEEEE;
border-radius: 100%;
content: "";
height: 12px;
left: 50%;
position: absolute;
top: 50%;
width: 12px;
}
/* css3 keyframes - animation 4 */
@-webkit-keyframes anim4 {
from { -webkit-transform: rotateZ(0deg); }
50% { -webkit-transform: rotateZ(180deg); }
to { -webkit-transform: rotateZ(360deg); }
}
@-moz-keyframes anim4 {
from { -moz-transform: rotateZ(0deg); }
50% { -moz-transform: rotateZ(180deg); }
to { -moz-transform: rotateZ(360deg); }
}
@-ms-keyframes anim4 {
from { -ms-transform: rotateZ(0deg); }
50% { -ms-transform: rotateZ(180deg); }
to { -ms-transform: rotateZ(360deg); }
}
@-o-keyframes anim4 {
from { -o-transform: rotateZ(0deg); }
50% { -o-transform: rotateZ(180deg); }
to { -o-transform: rotateZ(360deg); }
}
@keyframes anim4 {
from { transform: rotateZ(0deg); }
50% { transform: rotateZ(180deg); }
to { transform: rotateZ(360deg); }
}

Conclusion

That is all for today. We have just created four different ‘loading’ elements. I hope that everything have been easy for you and you like our result. Good luck!
