Hello,

I need help with sliding down an element.

When it is sliding down I want the parent's div height to change so it will contain the sliding element.

My html:

<div class="sliderBox">
<ul>
  <li>
    <div class="main">

     <div class="publicationTitleOuter">
      <div class="publicationTitleInner">Kouga/Uitenhage</div>
     </div>

     <p class="issueDate">8 MAY 2013</p>

     <div style="margin-top:10px"></div>

     <div style="width: 121px; margin: 0 auto">
      <a href="http://www.thinklocal.co.za/magazines/thinklocal/kouga/2013-05-08-225" target="_blank">
      <img src="http://tl/assets/img/thinklocal/kouga/tl-kouga-2013-05-08-cover.jpg" alt="Think Local issue: 8 MAY 2013" width="121" height="163" class="issue" />
      </a>
     </div>

     <div style="margin-bottom: 10px"></div>

     <a class="moreBtn" href="#">CLICK FOR MENU</a>
    </div><!-- end main -->          

    <div class="more">
      <h2 class="title">Kouga/Uitenhage</h2>
      <div class="issuemain" style="vertical-align: middle; line-height: 216px; float: left; width: 180px">
       <a href="http://thinklocal.co.za/magazines/thinklocal/kouga/2013-05-08-225" target="_blank">
       <img src="http://tl/assets/img/thinklocal/kouga/tl-kouga-2013-05-08-cover.jpg" alt="Think Local issue: 2013-05-08" width="160" height="216" />
       </a>
      </div>
      <div class="closer"></div>
    </div><!-- end more -->          

</li>

My jquery:

$('.moreBtn').on('click', function()
{
    $(this).parent().next().slideDown();

    return false;
});

The div with the class "more" has a display: none style.
So when I click the CLICK FOR MENU button, the div with the class "more" should slide down, and the div with the class "sliderBox" should grow accordingly.

How do I do that?

Thank you

Can you provide the styling as well? Or if you have this site online, the URL would be helpful.

Hi,

I've made some changes so here is the url: Click Here

You can see the problem under the Phonebook section, first CLICK FOR MENU button under Kouga/Uitenhage
You can see that when it slides down, it hides the bottom border of the parent div.

My jquery:

$('.moreBtn').on('click', function()
    {
        $(this).parent().next().slideDown();
        //console.log($($(this).parent().next()));
//      var h = $($(this).parent().parent().parent().find('.more')).height();
        //console.log(h);
        //console.log($(this).parent().parent().parent().parent());
      //$($(this).parent().parent().parent().parent()).css('height', 'auto');
        //console.log($(this).parent().parent().parent().parent().height());

    //  $('.sliderBox').css('border', '5px solid red');
//      $(this).parent().parent().css('height', h+'px');

        return false;
    });

My sliderBox style (The div that needs to change height):

.sliderBox {
    padding: 15px 10px;
    background:#fff;
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 0px 5px 1px rgba(100,100,100,0.3);
    -moz-box-shadow: 0px 0px 5px 1px rgba(100,100,100,0.3);
    box-shadow: 0px 0px 5px 1px rgba(100,100,100,0.3);
    overflow:visible;
    margin-top: 12px;
    background:#fff;
    z-index:1;
    position: relative;
    width: 100%
}

The .main div that slides down style:

.sliderBox .more {
position: absolute;
top:2px;
left:0;
z-index:9;
display: none;
background-color: #fff;
width: 100%;
padding: 0 5px;
box-sizing:border-box;
-moz-box-sizing:border-box;
-webkit-box-sizing:border-box;
}

Thank you

first CLICK FOR MENU button under Kouga/Uitenhage
You can see that when it slides down, it hides the bottom border of the parent div.

When i click on "click for menu", there is no sliding down, you just loaded new content. I assume that you recently changes this or am I clicking on the wrong item?

@JorgeM - It slides very quickly, it opens a div with a menu and text.

@RoryGren - If I try overflow: auto; on my sliderbox class it opens too big, it includes the li item in it as well.

Thank you
