slideDown() in jQuery
The slideDown() method is used to animate the height of the specified element, is such a way it animates like the element is scrolling down.
Durations are given in milliseconds, higher values indicate slower animations.
By setting jQuery.fx.off = true all jQuery effects can be turned off globally , which in turn sets the duration to 0.
- Default value is 400.
- number - Integer values are given in milliseconds.
- slow - It denotes 600 milliseconds.
- fast - It denotes 200 milliseconds.
- easing - It is optional and is used to specify the speed at which the animation progresses.It can have two values.
- swing - It is a default value, animation progresses in an irregular way.
- linear - It specifies that the animation progresses at a constant pace.
- complete - It is optional. It indicates a function which will be executed after the element is hidden.
- options - Given below options are optional
- duration - It can be defined by string or number and is used to determine how long the animation will run.
