jQuery Mobile is a JavaScript library built using jQuery & is based on the user interface system designed to make responsive websites and apps that are accessible on all smartphone, tablet, and desktop devices. The jQuery toolbar is a widget that can be utilized to enhance headers and footers. These widgets are used to add toolbars to the top &/or bottom of the page.

In this article, we will be using the jQuery Mobile Toolbar transition option. It is used to set the type of transition that we want while the toolbar is hiding/showing. This transition option is facilitated by the fixed Toolbar extension & is only applicable with the fixed toolbar. The default value is “slide” & it is of string type.

.Syntax: Initializing the toolbar by specifying the transition option:

$( "Selector" ).toolbar({
  transition: "none"
});

Setting & returning the transition option, after initialization:

  • Get the transition option:
var transition = $( "Selector" ).toolbar( "option", "transition" );
  • Set the transition option:
$( "Selector" ).toolbar( "option", "transition", "fade" );

Accepted values:

  • none: The toolbar will appear and disappear without any transition.
  • slide: The toolbar will slide in/out when it is toggled.
  • fade: The toolbar will fade in/out when it is toggled.
