How to create jQuery slide up and down toggle effect

Topic: JavaScript / jQueryPrev|Next

Answer: Use the jQuery slideUp() and slideDown() methods

You can simply use the jQuery slideUp() and slideDown() methods to hide and show the HTML elements with a smooth sliding motion using a single line of code.

Let's try out the following example to understand how these methods basically work:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>jQuery slideUp and slideDown Effect</title>
<style>
    .box{
        width: 400px;
        background: #f0e68c;
        border: 1px solid #a29415;
    }
    .box-inner{
        padding: 10px;
    }
</style>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.5.1.min.js"></script>
<script>
    $(document).ready(function(){
        $(".slide-up").click(function(){
            $(".box").slideUp();
        });
        $(".slide-down").click(function(){
            $(".box").slideDown();
        });
    });
</script>
</head>
<body>
    <button type="button" class="slide-up">Slide Up</button>
    <button type="button" class="slide-down">Slide Down</button>
    <hr>
    <div class="box">
        <div class="box-inner">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet...</div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

Alternatively, you can use the jQuery slideToggle() method that perform both slide up and down animation in such a way that if the element is initially displayed, it will be hidden; and if it is hidden, it will be shown. Let's check out the following example to see how it works:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>jQuery slideToggle Effect</title>
<style>
    .box{
        width: 400px;
        background: #f0e68c;
        border: 1px solid #a29415;
    }
    .box-inner{
        padding: 10px;
    }
</style>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.5.1.min.js"></script>
<script>
    $(document).ready(function(){
        $(".slide-toggle").click(function(){
            $(".box").slideToggle();
        });
    });
</script>
</head>
<body>
    <button type="button" class="slide-toggle">Slide Toggle</button>
    <hr>
    <div class="box">
        <div class="box-inner">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet...</div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>
