jQuery Show/Hide nested divs


I have awkward problem I cannot resolve.

I have a nested divs, which I want to show / hide when user clicks on a link. All divs at once.

I cannot assign ID's to my divs, so I will need to do it wiht classes.

<a href="#" id="showhide">Show more</a> <div class="more"> <div class="more1"> <h2>Some title</h2>

Some text

</div> <div class="more2"> <h2>Some title</h2>

Some text

</div> <div class="more3"> <h2>Some title</h2>

Some text

</div> </div>​

Here is the fiddle to my html structure. <a href="http://jsfiddle.net/56jdL/1/" rel="nofollow">http://jsfiddle.net/56jdL/1/</a>



You can use first hide the div, using css:

.more { display: none }

or jQuery:


And then use toggle method:

$(function() { // $('.more').hide() $('#showhide').click(function(e){ e.preventDefault(); $('.more').toggle() }) })

Try this :

$("#showhide").on('click', function(){ $(".more").children("div").slideToggle(); return false; });

To selectively toggle divs, give then a class by which they can be selected.

<div class="hideMe"> ... </div>

Then, the following jQuery will only act on those divs :

$("#showhide").on('click', function(){ $(".more").children("div.hideMe").slideToggle(); return false; });

<h2>EDIT 2</h2>

Here's a version that will work on your more complete code :

$(".showhide").on('click', function() { $(this).closest(".vrsticaoglas").find(".more").children("div").slideToggle(); return false; });
