I have 3 buttons each performing simple animations. The last button ( <button id="moveDiv" >Move Div</button>) is not working.

Question: How can I fix the code so that upon click on "Move Div" button, the div will swing to the right?

Thank you,

Mike

Try

left: "500px"

instead of left: "500"

also #moveDiv should be positioned relative or absolute for property left to work.


just try CSS

#moveDiv {
 position:relative;
}
