How to get this div to slide after page loads and not on a mouse click?

Calling JQuery geniuses:

How do do you this please where the sliding div automatically animates when the page has finished loading?

I know that this is the essential part:

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('#slidebottom button').click(function() {
    $(this).next().slideToggle();
  });

Open in new window


Thank you in advance.

Hello gurvinder372.

Just one question please.
It works brilliantly  but when I remove the button ( I want the div to be just content ) it doesn't slide anymore.
How do I get your code to work wihout the button.

Thank you so very much.

in that case, you need to give an id to that sliding content. Since, currently  you are traversing to that div via that button only.

If you cannot give id to that sliding div, then hide the button

Hello gurvinder372.

I'm not sure how to do that correctly.
I can't seem to get it to work by removing the button.
I am not much of a coder, but I am trying.

This is what I tried.

<style type="text/css">
.slide {
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;
  height: 120px;
  width: 350px;
  margin: 1em 0;
  background-color: #ffc;
  border: 1px solid #999;
}
.slide .inner {
      position: absolute;
      left: 0;
      bottom: 0;
      width: 338px;
      height: 36px;
      padding: 6px;
      background-color: #9CF;
      color: #333;
}

.slide button {
  margin: .7em 0 0 .7em;
}
.js #slidebottom .inner {
  display: none;
}
#content1 {
      font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;
      font-size: 10px;
}
</style>    
<script type="text/javascript">
  document.documentElement.className = 'js';
</script>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {
   setTimeout(function(){
      $('#content1').next().slideToggle();
   }, 1500);
  });

</script>



</head>

<body>
  <div id="content1" class="slide">
   Hello
    <div class="inner">Slide from bottom</div>
  </div>



</head>

<body>
  <div id="content1" class="slide">
   Hello
    <div class="inner">Slide from bottom</div>
  </div>

:) Would you believe it. IT works but instead of the div sliding open, it starts open and closes. I feel so dumb.
