jQuery Hide and Show

jQuery Effects - Hide and Show

 

jQuery hide() and show()

Hide, Show, Toggle, Slide, Fade, and Animate. WOW !

With jQuery, you can hide and show HTML elements with the hide() and show() methods :

Example

$("#hide").click(function(){
    $("p").hide();
});

$("#show").click(function(){
    $("p").show();
});

Syntax :

$(selector).hide(speed,callback);
$(selector).show(speed,callback);

The optional speed parameter specifies the speed of the hiding/showing, and can take the following values: "slow", "fast", or milliseconds.

The optional callback parameter is a function to be executed after the hide() or show() method completes (you will learn more about callback functions in a later chapter).

The following example demonstrates the speed parameter with hide() :

Example

$("button").click(function(){
    $("p").hide(1000);
});

jQuery toggle()

With jQuery, you can toggle between the hide() and show() methods with the toggle() method.

Shown elements are hidden and hidden elements are shown :

Example

$("button").click(function(){
    $("p").toggle();
});

Syntax :

$(selector).toggle(speed,callback);

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

The optional callback parameter is a function to be executed after toggle() completes.
