Curtain Opening Effect Using jQuery And CSS


To Create Curtain Opening Effect It Takes Only Two Steps:-

  1. Make a HTML file and define markup and scripting
  2. Make a CSS file and define styling


Step 1.Make a HTML file and define markup and scripting

We make a HTML file and save it with a name effect.html

<html>
<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="effect_style.css">
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
function open_curtain()
{
 $("#curtain1").animate({width:20},1000);
 $("#curtain2").animate({width:20},1000);
}
function close_curtain()
{
 $("#curtain1").animate({width:200},1000);
 $("#curtain2").animate({width:191},1000);
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="wrapper">

<div id="effect">
 <p>Surprise You Got A Lottery!</p>
 <img src="images/curtain1.jpg" id="curtain1">
 <img src="images/curtain2.jpg" id="curtain2">
</div>

<div id="curtain_buttons">
 <input type="button" value="OPEN CURTAIN" onclick="open_curtain();">
 <input type="button" value="CLOSE CURTAIN" onclick="close_curtain();">
</div>

</div>
</body>
</html>

In this step we create a 'effect' div and insert curtain images and then create two buttons to open and close the curtains.In open_curtain() function we animate 1st curtain to left side and 2nd curtain to right side same as the real curtain opening effect.In close_curtain() function we use just the opposite of previous function we animate 1st curtain to right and 2nd curtain to left.You may also like Blink Text Effect Using CSS3.

{
 text-align:center;
 width:100%;
 margin:0 auto;
 padding:0px;
 font-family:helvetica;
 background-color:#F79F81;

#wrapper

}

 position:absolute;
 left:0px;
 height:220px;
}
#curtain2
{
 top:0px;
 position:absolute;
 height:220px;
 right:0px;
}
#curtain_buttons input[type="button"]
{
 margin-top:20px;
 width:150px;
 height:45px;
 border-radius:2px;
 color:white;
 background-color:#B43104;
 border:none;
