API documentation for the React Fade component. Learn about the available props, and the CSS API.


import Fade from '@material-ui/core/Fade';
// or
import { Fade } from '@material-ui/core';
You can learn about the difference by reading this guide on minimizing bundle size.

The Fade transition is used by the Modal component. It uses react-transition-group internally.


appearbooltruePerform the enter transition when it first mounts if in is also true. Set this to false to disable this behavior.
childrenelementA single child content element.
⚠️ Needs to be able to hold a ref.
inboolfalseIf true, the component will transition in.
| { appear?: number, enter?: number, exit?: number }
{ enter: duration.enteringScreen, exit: duration.leavingScreen, }The duration for the transition, in milliseconds. You may specify a single timeout for all transitions, or individually with an object.

The ref is forwarded to the root element.
Any other props supplied will be provided to the root element (Transition).


While not explicitly documented above, the props of the Transition component from react-transition-group are also available on Fade. You can take advantage of this to target nested components.
