ACCUMULATE Attribute | accumulate Property

Sets or gets a value that indicates whether the animation is cumulative.

Syntax

HTML <ELEMENT ACCUMULATE = sType... >
Scripting [ sType = ] object.accumulate [ = val ]

Possible Values

sType String that specifies or receives one of the following values.
noneDefault. Repeat iterations are not cumulative.
sumEach repeat iteration after the first one builds on the last value of the previous iteration.

The property is read/write. The property has a default value of none.
