Animated circle with callback

In the task Animated circle an animated growing circle is shown.

Now let’s say we need not just a circle, but to show a message inside it. The message should appear after the animation is complete (the circle is fully grown), otherwise it would look ugly.

In the solution of the task, the function showCircle(cx, cy, radius) draws the circle, but gives no way to track when it’s ready.

Add a callback argument: showCircle(cx, cy, radius, callback) to be called when the animation is complete. The callback should receive the circle <div> as an argument.

Here’s the example:

showCircle(150, 150, 100, div => {
  div.append("Hello, world!");


Take the solution of the task Animated circle as the base.
