Hi Ricky!

Here is a JavaScript solution - it is annotated fairly well in the script so I won’t go into it in this post. (14.8 KB)

Demo here.

• “Head HTML” - a global variable is initialized.
• “sliderMenus” function - does the work for both “menu” buttons.


thankyou for your help Jim . It works nicely , but until I click the same button consecutively 5 times , it stops working , how can I fix that?

Hi Ricky!

I ca not replicate the “5-click limit” issue. I have clicked on both the green & orange buttons for 10-click cycles (open>close) and not had a problem - don’t know what to say except look at your “Developer” menu to see what happens after click 5 - is there an error or any sort of reporting?

Also what browser are You using (and version number)? I have given Safari (10.1.1), Chrome (61.0.3163.100 (Official Build) (64-bit) ) & Firefox (56.0.2 (64-bit) ) the 10-click trial with no issues - including another testing of randomizing the button selection during clicking - again no issues.

I made a no-need-js version, hope to help you (14.2 KB)


Note the “the blue bar come out the red bar sliding back inside”.
The OP’s request was to have sliders move back into place, not just disappear as per your version.

e.g. Using your color scheme:

Yellow button triggers the "red slider"
Cyan button triggers the “blue slider”

If the “red slider” is extended (Yellow button was clicked), when clicking on the Cyan button the “red slider” disappears, it does not slide back in place - after which the “blue slider” slides out into position.

Vice versa for clicking the Yellow button when the (Cyan button’s) “blue slider” is extended. The “blue slider” does not slide back into place it just disappears and then the “red slider” slides out.

I tried doing a “timeline only” version and I could not get it to consistently run clean with the sliders always sliding in and out properly.

Oops, I made some mistakes, and I tried another way of thinking, and it should be able to solve the problem better. (14.8 KB)

it works , thanks to you . i tried to change the time to 0.5 , so it doesn’t get slower when it goes back . Cause when you put 1 second on it , it feels it was stuck .

Nice effort on the “Timeline only” solution - it works well!
