Hide the matched set by fading it to transparent, optionally providing a duration and/or an easing and/or a callback function.

  • When used in its basic form with no parameters or incorrect parameters the .fadeOut() method defaults to fading out the element(s) with a duration of 400 milliseconds which is the default.

In the example below when the first button is pressed we fade out the first image and it defaults to a fade out duration of 400 milliseconds.

When the second button is pressed we use 'swing' easing to animate the picture as we fade it out.

When the third button is pressed we use a callback to alert when the image is faded out.

When the fourth button is pressed we use a duration, easing and a callback to alert when the images are faded out.
