← Previous Next →


The jQuery show() method is used to show the selected elements.

Syntax :

$(selector).show();  
$(selector).show(speed, callback);  
$(selector).show(speed, easing, callback);  

speed: It is an optional parameter. It specifies the speed of the delay. Its possible vales are slow, fast and milliseconds.

easing: It specifies the easing function to be used for transition.

callback: It is also an optional parameter. It specifies the function to be called after completion of show() effect.


Let's take an example to see the jQuery show effect.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.2/jquery.min.js">
</script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){ $("#hide").click(function(){ $("p").hide(); }); $("#show").click(function(){ $("p").show(); }); }); </script>
</head>
<body>
<p>
<b>This is a little poem: </b>
Twinkle, twinkle, little star<br/>
How I wonder what you are<br/>
Up above the world so high<br/>
Like a diamond in the sky<br/>
Twinkle, twinkle little star<br/>
How I wonder what you are </p>
<button id="hide">
Hide</button>
<button id="show">
Show</button>
</body>
</html>

Output:

This is a little poem:
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
