CSS transition-delay Property

In CSS, the transition-delay property specifies when the transition should begin. The transition-delay value is specified in seconds or milliseconds.

The default value for transition-delay is 0s, which means there will be no delay and the transition will begin immediately. For more precise timing, the time value can be expressed as a decimal-based number. When a transition has a negative delay value, the transition will start immediately, but it will start halfway through the process, as if it had already started.
