.slideUp()

.slideUp( [ duration ], [ callback ] ) Returns: jQuery

Description: Hide the matched elements with a sliding motion.

  • version added: 1.0.slideUp( [ duration ], [ callback ] )

    durationA string or number determining how long the animation will run.

    callbackA function to call once the animation is complete.

The .slideUp() method animates the height of the matched elements. This causes lower parts of the page to slide up, appearing to conceal the items. Once the height reaches 0, the display style property is set to none to ensure that the element no longer affects the layout of the page.

Durations are given in milliseconds; higher values indicate slower animations, not faster ones. The strings 'fast' and 'slow' can be supplied to indicate durations of 200 and 600 milliseconds, respectively. If any other string is supplied, or if the duration parameter is omitted, the default duration of 400 milliseconds is used.

If supplied, the callback is fired once the animation is complete. This can be useful for stringing different animations together in sequence. The callback is not sent any arguments, but this is set to the DOM element being animated. If multiple elements are animated, it is important to note that the callback is executed once per matched element, not once for the animation as a whole.

We can animate any element, such as a simple image:

<div id="clickme">
  Click here
</div>
<img id="book" src="book.png" alt="" width="100" height="123" />

With the element initially shown, we can hide it slowly:

$('#clickme').click(function() {
  $('#book').slideUp('slow', function() {
    // Animation complete.
  });
});
  

Examples:

Example: Animates all divs to slide up, completing the animation within 400 milliseconds.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <style>
  div { background:#3d9a44; margin:3px; width:80px; 
    height:40px; float:left; }
  </style>
  <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
	Click me!
  <div></div>
  <div></div>
  <div></div>
  <div></div>

  <div></div>
<script>
  $(document.body).click(function () {
    if ($("div:first").is(":hidden")) {
      $("div").show("slow");
    } else {
      $("div").slideUp();
    }
  });

  </script>
</body>
</html>

Demo:

Example: Animates the parent paragraph to slide up, completing the animation within 200 milliseconds. Once the animation is done, it displays an alert.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <style>
 div { margin:2px; }
</style>
  <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
	<div>
  <button>Hide One</button>
  <input type="text" value="One" />

</div>
<div>
  <button>Hide Two</button>
  <input type="text" value="Two" />

</div>
<div>
  <button>Hide Three</button>
  <input type="text" value="Three" />

</div>
<div id="msg"></div>
<script>
  $("button").click(function () {
    $(this).parent().slideUp("slow", function () {
      $("#msg").text($("button", this).text() + " has completed.");
    });
  });

</script>
