jQuery show() method

The show( speed, [callback] ) method shows all matched elements using a graceful animation and firing an optional callback after completion.

Here is the description of all the parameters used by this method −

  • speed − A string representing one of the three predefined speeds ("slow", "normal", or "fast") or the number of milliseconds to run the animation (e.g. 1000).
  • callback − This is optional parameter representing a function to call once the animation is complete.

Example
