How to toggle animate with css display:none

Tags: javascript,jquery,css

Problem :

Hopefully this ties together posts where gaps are missing, as I am having a ton of trouble with this.

Trying to toggle the div so it slides out of view and back into view each time a button is pushed. Ultimately will be two or more dividers sliding out at the same time. I'm using:

display {visibility:hidden}

Then checking in the code for:

("#initiate").click( function(event) {
$("#initiate").click( function(event) {
  if ($("#nav").is(":hidden")) {
      right: '520px'
    }, 1300);
    else {
        right: '320px'
      }, 1300);


Multiples problems: 1. Slide only works if the visibility is set to something other than "none." 2. Only slides out, not back in.

How can I make this work guys?

Solution :

Taking a slightly different approach, I would rather do the animation with css3 thanks to transition, and then toggle classes with javascript/jquery:,css,js,output

<!DOCTYPE html>
<script src=""></script>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">
  transition:right 0.5s ease;
<p id="initiate">test</p>
<div id="display" class="hide"></div>

It introduce less complexity to the code and is easier to maintain in the long run (and with multiple sliding div etc etc).
