jQuery slideUp(), slideDown() and slideToggle() example

jQuery comes with three handy methods to create the sliding effect easily.

  1. slideUp() – Hide the matched elements with slide up effect.
  2. slideDown() – Display the matched elements with slide down effect.
  3. slideToggle() – If the matched element is displayed, it will hide with a slide up effect; if hidden, it will display with a slide down effect.

Above three methods are support duration as parameter : slow, fast, or exact milliseconds. If this parameter is omitted, the default 400 milliseconds is apply.

Try it yourself

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.4.2.min.js"></script>
<style type="text/css">
	.slideDownbox, .slideUpbox, .slideTogglebox{
		border:1px solid red;
<h1>jQuery slideUp(), slideDown() and slideToggle() example</h1>
<div class="clear">
	<h2>slideDown() example</h2>
	<div class="slideDownbox">

	<div class="slideDownbox">

	<h2>slideUp() example</h2>
	<div class="slideUpbox">

	<div class="slideTogglebox">
	<div class="slideTogglebox">

	<button id=reset>Reset</button>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(".slideDownbox").click(function () {
$(".slideUpbox").click(function () {
$("#slideToggle").click(function () {

    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
    using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve
    had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Thank you friend, I have a question,
    That I must do in order that the div proves to be hidden by fault ???


    I’m unable to get this effect … really don’t know why!!!
    I have also worked on a similar kind of example from w3schools.
    The jQuery code which is working in some online editors is not effective on my system.
    Looking for your help !!!

    Great Article! I love how simple you have made it for a user to easily get a grasp on jQuery. Great code snippets. I found this article because I was doing some research for other beginner articles on jQuery. Good job and thanks again.

    BTW, I have created a simple jQuery slideup and slidedown article that I feel would be targeted at very basic users, anyway let me know what you think, it’s at: http://www.tonylea.com/2010/jquery-slideup-and-slidedown/

    Thanks :)
