  • Last Updated : 03 Dec, 2020

In this article, we will demonstrate the effect of Fold by using a JavaScript library called script.aculo.us having a smooth scaling down first in the vertical direction and then horizontal toward the left to finally disappear. We can adjust the duration of the effect as well.

Syntax:

Effect.Fold('id_of_element');

// Or

Effect.Fold('id_of_element', { duration: dur });

Parameters:

  • id_of_element: Element on which the effect to be applied.
  • duration: Duration taken by this effect.

Note: To use this library, we are supposed to download or install the library and then use it in our programs. And to do so you can follow this link http://script.aculo.us/downloads.



Approach:

  • To demonstrate the use of this function, we have written a small piece of code. In which we have written a small JavaScript function named FoldEffect() method which uses Fold() method of this library. 
  • By clicking on Click here to see the Fold effect, you will see the effect clearly.

Example 1: To see the effect first install the library and then open the following program in the local environment.

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
   
<head>
    <script src = "prototype.js"></script>
  
    <script src
        "scriptaculous.js?load = effects">
    </script>
   
    <script type = "text/javascript">
        function FoldEffect(element){
            new Effect.Fold(element, {duration:4});
        }
    </script>
</head>
   
<body>
    <div id = "myimage" onclick = "FoldEffect(this);">
  
        <img height=200px width=200px 
            src = "gfg.png" alt = "gfg logo" />
              
        <h2>Click here to see the Fold effect </h2>
    </div>    
</body>
