How to animate div width on mouse hover using jQuery

  1806 views   2 years ago jQuery

Use the jQuery animate() method

You can simply use the jQuery animate() method in combination with the mouseenter() and mouseleave() methods to animate the width of a <div> element on mouseover.

Let's take a look at an example to understand how it basically works:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>jQuery Animate Div Width on Hover</title>
        width: 200px;
        height: 150px;
        background: #f0e68c;
        border: 1px solid #a29415;
<script src=""></script>
        var boxWidth = $(".box").width();
                width: "400"
                width: boxWidth
    <p><strong>Note:</strong> Place mouse pointer over the box to play the animation.</p>
    <div class="box"></div>
