jQuery UI hide

To manage jQuery UI visual effects to apply an animation effect to hide elements, the jQuery hide() method is used.


.hide( effect, [options], [duration], [complete] )


  • Effect: Used to define the effects which are used for transition.
  • Options: Used to define the specific setting and easing for the effects, where each effect has its own set of options.
  • Duration: Used to define the time duration and to specify the number of milliseconds of the effect, with a default value of 400.
  • Complete: Called for each element, as a callback method, when the effect is completed for the elements.

               $( "#effect-1" ).hide( "shake", {times: 5, distance: 300}, 500, callback );  
            // callback function to bring a hidden box back  
            function callback() {  
               setTimeout(function() {  
                  $( "#effect-1" ).removeAttr( "style" ).hide().fadeIn();  
               }, 500 );  
            // set effect from select menu value  
            $( "#btn-1" ).click(function() {  
               return false;  
      <div class="togglr">  
      <div id="effect-1" class="ui-widget-content ui-corner-all">  
         <h3 class="ui-widget-header ui-corner-all">Hello World!!</h3>  
            Click the button to shake me......  
      <a href="#" id="btn-1" class="ui-state-default ui-corner-all">Shake Effect Hide Button</a>
