View Full Version : Resolved Control speed of a jQuery animation

02-13-2011, 10:03 PM
I am new to jQuery (2 weeks). I would like to set up my animations so that the #logo slides in over a period of 3 seconds, then the #homeDetail fades in over a period of 5 seconds. I don't know how to control the speed of the logo slide, and I don't know how to tell the #homeDetail to start after the slide.

Here's the code I'm using right now:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {

var $lefty = $("#logo");
left: parseInt($lefty.css('left'),10) == 15 ?
-$lefty.outerWidth() :

The first place to look for answers should always be the official documentation:

What you're looking for are the "duration" and "queue" options.

I had gone to that page before, but didn't understand it. I did see the word "delay" at some point in my search, and when I went to the "delay" page, I got the answer I needed. Plus, their code made more sense to me.

$(document).ready(function() {
//set opacity of logo and detail to 0, then slide in and fade up
left: "170px",
opacity: "0"
opacity: 1,
left: "10"
}, 2000 );

//set opacity to 0, delay for 1.2 seconds, then fade up
opacity: "0"
opacity: 1
}, 2000 );
