Blind Effect

Blind Effect

Description: The blind effect hides or shows an element by wrapping the element in a container, and "pulling the blinds"

  • blind

    • direction (default: "up")
      Type: String

      The direction the blind will be pulled to hide the element, or the direction from which the element will be revealed.

      Possible Values: up, down, left, right, vertical, horizontal.

The container has overflow: hidden applied, so height changes affect what's visible.


Toggle a div using the blind effect.
