A toggle example with ease and callback function options

The more the value of milliseconds the slower will be animation. Whereas, the value provided as fast means 200 milliseconds and slow means 600 MS.

In the following example, I will use duration as well as the callback function. The callback function will execute as the animation is done. You may perform some kích hoạt at the end of animation or show some descriptive message to your visitors.

The example also uses easing option. If you are using the jQuery library only, you may specify swing (which is default) or “linear” options. While if jQuery UI library is used, other easing options may also be specified. In this example, I will use the jQuery library lớn use other easing option.
