# Class SequentialTransition

```public final class SequentialTransition
extends Transition```
This `Transition` plays a list of `Animations` in sequential order.

Children of this `Transition` inherit `node`, if their `node` property is not specified.

Code Segment Example:

``` ```
Rectangle rect = new Rectangle (100, 40, 100, 100);
rect.setArcHeight(50);
rect.setArcWidth(50);
rect.setFill(Color.VIOLET);

final Duration SEC_2 = Duration.millis(2000);
final Duration SEC_3 = Duration.millis(3000);

PauseTransition pt = new PauseTransition(Duration.millis(1000));
ft.setFromValue(1.0f);
ft.setToValue(0.3f);
ft.setCycleCount(2f);
ft.setAutoReverse(true);
TranslateTransition tt = new TranslateTransition(SEC_2);
tt.setFromX(-100f);
tt.setToX(100f);
tt.setCycleCount(2f);
tt.setAutoReverse(true);
RotateTransition rt = new RotateTransition(SEC_3);
rt.setByAngle(180f);
rt.setCycleCount(4f);
rt.setAutoReverse(true);
ScaleTransition st = new ScaleTransition(SEC_2);
st.setByX(1.5f);
st.setByY(1.5f);
st.setCycleCount(2f);
st.setAutoReverse(true);

SequentialTransition seqT = new SequentialTransition (rect, pt, ft, tt, rt, st);
seqT.play();
```

• ## Property Details

• ### node

public final  nodeProperty
This `Node` is used in all child `Transitions`, that do not define a target `Node` themselves. This can be used if a number of `Transitions` should be applied to a single `Node`.

It is not possible to change the target `node` of a running `Transition`. If the value of `node` is changed for a running `Transition`, the animation has to be stopped and started again to pick up the new value.

`getNode()`, `setNode(Node)`
• ## Constructor Details

• ### SequentialTransition

public SequentialTransition​(Node node, Animation... children)
The constructor of `SequentialTransition`.
Parameters:
`node` - The target `Node` to be used in child `Transitions` that have no `Node` specified themselves
`children` - The child `Animations` of this `SequentialTransition`
• ### SequentialTransition

public SequentialTransition​(Animation... children)
The constructor of `SequentialTransition`.
Parameters:
`children` - The child `Animations` of this `SequentialTransition`
• ### SequentialTransition

public SequentialTransition​(Node node)
The constructor of `SequentialTransition`.
Parameters:
`node` - The target `Node` to be used in child `Transitions` that have no `Node` specified themselves
• ### SequentialTransition

public SequentialTransition()
The constructor of `SequentialTransition`.
• ## Method Details

• ### setNode

public final void setNode​(Node value)
Sets the value of the property node.
Property description:
This `Node` is used in all child `Transitions`, that do not define a target `Node` themselves. This can be used if a number of `Transitions` should be applied to a single `Node`.

It is not possible to change the target `node` of a running `Transition`. If the value of `node` is changed for a running `Transition`, the animation has to be stopped and started again to pick up the new value.

• ### getNode

public final Node getNode()
Gets the value of the property node.
Property description:
This `Node` is used in all child `Transitions`, that do not define a target `Node` themselves. This can be used if a number of `Transitions` should be applied to a single `Node`.

It is not possible to change the target `node` of a running `Transition`. If the value of `node` is changed for a running `Transition`, the animation has to be stopped and started again to pick up the new value.

• ### nodeProperty

public final  nodeProperty()
This `Node` is used in all child `Transitions`, that do not define a target `Node` themselves. This can be used if a number of `Transitions` should be applied to a single `Node`.

It is not possible to change the target `node` of a running `Transition`. If the value of `node` is changed for a running `Transition`, the animation has to be stopped and started again to pick up the new value.

`getNode()`, `setNode(Node)`
• ### getChildren

public final  getChildren()
A list of `Animations` that will be played sequentially.

It is not possible to change the children of a running `SequentialTransition`. If the children are changed for a running `SequentialTransition`, the animation has to be stopped and started again to pick up the new value.

Returns:
a list of Animations that will be played sequentially
• ### getParentTargetNode

protected Node getParentTargetNode()
Returns the first non-`null` target `Node` in the parent hierarchy of this `Transition`, or `null` if such a node is not found.

A parent animation is one that can have child animations. Examples are `SequentialTransition` and `ParallelTransition`. A parent animation can also be a child of another parent animation.

Note that if this `Transition` has a target node set and is not a parent animation, it will be ignored during the call as this method only queries parent animations.

Overrides:
`getParentTargetNode` in class `Transition`
Returns:
the target `Node`
• ### interpolate

protected void interpolate​(double frac)
The method `interpolate()` has to be provided by implementations of `Transition`. While a `Transition` is running, this method is called in every frame. The parameter defines the current position with the animation. At the start, the fraction will be `0.0` and at the end it will be `1.0`. How the parameter increases, depends on the `interpolator`, e.g. if the `interpolator` is `Interpolator.LINEAR`, the fraction will increase linear. This method must not be called by the user directly.
Specified by:
`interpolate` in class `Transition`
Parameters:
`frac` - The relative position
