jQuery Effects - Sliding Example

In this jQuery series tutorial i will discuss about jquery slide animation. In jQuery slide method the jQuery slide methods slide elements up and down. 

In this tutorial we will see jQuery slide effect example with source code. Using jQuery you can create a sliding effect on elements.

jQuery has the following slide methods:

  • slideDown()
  • slideUp()
  • slideToggle()

 

The jQuery slideDown() method is used to slide down an element.

Syntax
$(selector).slideDown(speed,callback);

 

The optional speed parameter specifies the duration of the effect. It can take the following values: "slow", "fast", or milliseconds.

The following example demonstrates the slideDown() method:

$("#flip").click(function(){
  $("#panel").slideDown();
});

 

The jQuery slideUp() method is used to slide up an element.

Syntax
$(selector).slideUp(speed,callback);

 

The optional speed parameter specifies the duration of the effect. It can take the following values: "slow", "fast", or milliseconds.

The following example demonstrates the slideUp() method:

$("#flip").click(function(){
  $("#panel").slideUp();
});

 

The jQuery slideToggle() method toggles between the slideDown() and slideUp() methods. If the elements have been slid down, slideToggle() will slide them up. If the elements have been slid up, slideToggle() will slide them down.

 

Syntax
$(selector).slideToggle(speed,callback);

 

The optional speed parameter can take the following values: "slow", "fast", milliseconds.

The following example demonstrates the slideToggle() method:

$("#flip").click(function(){
  $("#panel").slideToggle();
});
