I write a presentation with several slide contain \enumerate{}. If an \enumerate{} contains 5 \item, then each item expanding into five pages. Can I play animation of Beamer in one slide only?

\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=lightgray!40}  

\frametitle{\textbf{Latar Belakang}}  
\textbf{Latar Belakang}  
    \item Text line 1  
    \item Text line 2  
    \item Text line 3  
    \item Text line 4  
    \item Text line 5    
  • No, but if you are using a suitable pdf viewer you can make the 5 slides play automatically by setting the transduration. – samcarter Dec 1 '17 at 15:58

    Off-topic, but you don't need graphicx with beamer, as beamer already provides this functionality. – samcarter Dec 1 '17 at 16:00
  • Instead of using \textbf in the frametitle, rather do \setbeamerfont{frametitle}{series=\bfseries} – samcarter Dec 1 '17 at 16:00

    Then the answer is simply no, beamer overlays work by splitting a frame into separate slides. – samcarter Dec 1 '17 at 16:06

    Why do you want the animation to be in one slide? If you want to distribute copies of your slides and you don't want so many pages, then you can use \documentclass[handout]{beamer}, which will create one page per frame (with all elements visible). – Marijn Dec 1 '17 at 21:09

No, at least not using standard beamer overlays. Splitting a frame into multiple slides is how overlays work.

Using the animate package you could create an JavaScript based solution, which adds the text on the same slide, however you would need to change the syntax of your enumeration and use a pdf viewer capable of JavaScript.
