I am attempting to prepend a div to another div. I want the div's elements to slide down, and then have the newly prepended element faded in. Here's what I have, but it's not working.
In what way is it not working?
The slideDown() function will make the new element appear - so the subsequent fadeIn() will have no effect - is that the problem?

Yes. The new element isn't fading in, which is what I'm trying to do. I don't want slidedown to automatically show the new element.
That's what slideDown does, unfortunately. Is there any reason not to just use fadeIn and remove the slideDown entirely?

I would like to keep both (even if I have to hack it to work correctly). I like the animation of the current contents sliding down to make room for the new element, and then the new element fading into view.
Have a try with:
Setting the opacity to 0 before the slideDown allows the element then to be faded in with animate.

That works! Thank you so much!!
