- DropOut Effect



The DropOut effect combines the core effects to remove an element from the document flow in an animated fashion.

In this case, the Opacity and MoveBy core effects are combined to make it look as if the element drops off the page towards the floor.


You can use one of the following two forms to use this effect −

new Effect.DropOut('id_of_element', [options]);


new Effect.DropOut(element, [options]);

Effect-Specific Parameters
