Any way to visualize the transform origin point in CSS?  #angularjs #reactjs

  • The third value will only work if you are using 3D transforms, and it cannot be a percentage.

I’m trying to make an object move along an arc, for which I need to set the transform-origin point away from the object itself and then rotate it. So instead of blindly moving the transform-origin point using different lengths and then finally achieving the desired result through trial and error, is there a way to make the point visible to make the process easier?

By default, the origin of a transform is “50% 50%”, which is exactly in the center of any given element. Changing the origin to “top left” (as in the demo above) causes the element to use the top left corner of the element as a rotation point.

Values can be lengths, percentages or the keywords top, left, right, bottom, and center.

The first value is the horizontal position, the second value is the vertical, and the third value represents the position on the Z axis. The third value will only work if you are using 3D transforms, and it cannot be a percentage.
