With this code:




<meta charset="UTF-8">

<title>Untitled Document</title>


#test {

width: 50%;

background-color: red;

border-style: solid;

border-color: black;

border-width: 50px;



<script src=""></script>


$(document).ready(function() {

$('html').click(function() {


borderLeftWidth : 'toggle'







<div id="test">blah</div>



On the first click, the left border animates to 0 and then the entire element dissappears. Click again and the element reappears and animates to original 50px value.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a complete reduced test case on jsFiddle to help us assess your ticket!

Additionally, be sure to test against the jQuery Edge version to ensure the issue still exists. To get you started, use this boilerplate:

Open the link and click to "Fork" (in the top menu) to get started.

This works as intended: the

value will call show/hide at the beginning/end of its animation... It is still animating.
