This page shows you how to fade a HTML element using JavaScript by CSS transition.

Code

Here's the HTML code:

<div id="id66259"><span style="font-size:6em">★</span></div>

<button id="b1">Fade</button>
<button id="b2">UnFade</button>

Here's the JavaScript code:

var star = document.getElementById("id66259");
star.style.opacity = 1;
star.style.transition = "opacity 1s";

var button1 = document.getElementById("b1");
var button2 = document.getElementById("b2");

function fade() {
    star.style.opacity = 0;
}

function unfade() {
    star.style.opacity = 1;
}

button1.addEventListener("click", fade , false);
button2.addEventListener("click", unfade , false);

This is done by simply setting CSS “transition” property, with changes on opacity. See: CSS: Transition Tutorial.

For pure JavaScript version without using CSS transition, see: JavaScript: Fade a Element.
