jQuery code snippet to make an options bar slider which can be toggled up and down to show options for a tool or such. It changes the arrow image when the animation ends.

Online Demo

	/*OPTIONS SLIDER / BUTTON ANIMATION -----------------*/
	var optionsToggleBtn = $('#options_btn');
	var buttonState = 1; //open
	optionsToggleBtn.live('click', function(){
		$('#options').slideToggle('slow' , function(){
			if (buttonState == 1) {
				buttonState = 0;
			} else { 
				buttonState = 1;

    Hi, the link to the online demo is wrong. It currently goes to the json tree viewer.

    Hi Thomas, Yes this is the correct demo. The options toolbar can be opened and closed using the green arrow on the right of the JSON Tree Viewer. Cheers. Sam
