animate a dir right position like toggle

Hi
i have a div that start like so:
right: -50%;

Open in new window


i need to toggle it to:
right: -90%;

Open in new window


i tried toggle but it doesn't just move it, it is like hide and show. i just need to toggle its right between these two points.
so i have this, and it works but it doesn't act like a toggle:
$('#menu-btn').on("click",function(e) {
 $('.slide').animate({"right": '-90'});
});

Open in new window


what am i missing here? how to make it act like a toggle?

best regards

Hi,

please try this:
$('#menu-btn').on("click",function(e) {
 if ($('.slide').css('right') == '-90%') {
	$('.slide').css('right') = '-50%';
 } else {
	$('.slide').css('right') = '-90%';
 }
});

Open in new window


Which jQuery version are you using?

Hi Rainer
i am using 1.10.2

but i found out that if you use jquery ui with toggleClass i can get exactly what i wanted:
$('#menu-btn').on("click",function(e) {
    e.preventDefault();
    $(".slide").toggleClass('open', 1000, "easeOutSine");
    return false;
});

Open in new window


then in the open class just change the right property.

do not know if i can give myself points, but someone else might find it helpfull.
