Animating pointer clicks (HTML)

Use pointer animations to provide users with visual feedback of a tap or click on an item. The pointer down animation is played when a user taps or clicks on an item. The animation slightly shrinks the item to indicate that it is pressed. The pointer up animation is played when the tap or click is released. This animation restores the item to its original size, to indicate that it has been released.

This set of animations consists of the following APIs:
