is my current animation. The elements are animating independently. I am trying to figure out how to get the top and bottom of the black box to match the top and bottom green bars. So when animating it fills the space between the green bars, black. Any ideas? Thank you

var regHeight = $('#register').height();

$("#content").show().animate({"height": "600px", "top": "15%"}, 1000);
