animate()

The jQuery animate() method provides you a way to create custom animations.

Syntax:

snippet
$(selector).animate({params}, speed, callback);

Here, params parameter defines the CSS properties to be animated.

The speed parameter is optional and specifies the duration of the effect. It can be set as "slow" , "fast" or milliseconds.

The callback parameter is also optional and it is a function which is executed after the animation completes.
