How to Create a Left-Right Scroll Animation with jQuery Animate?

Estimated read time 2 min read

To create a left-right scroll animation with jQuery animate, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a container element in your HTML code that will hold the content you want to animate. Here’s an example:
<div id="container">
  <div id="content">
    <!-- Your content here -->
  1. Add some CSS code to position the container element and set its width and height. Here’s an example:
#container {
  position: relative;
  width: 500px;
  height: 200px;
  overflow: hidden;

#content {
  position: absolute;
  left: 0;
  top: 0;

This code will create a container element with a fixed width and height, and set its overflow to hidden so that anything outside of it will be hidden. The content element inside the container will be positioned absolutely and anchored to the top-left corner.

  1. Add some JavaScript code that will animate the content element when the user clicks a button or triggers an event. Here’s an example:
$('#left-button').click(function() {
  $('#content').animate({ left: '-=200px' }, 500);

$('#right-button').click(function() {
  $('#content').animate({ left: '+=200px' }, 500);

This code will listen for clicks on two buttons with IDs “left-button” and “right-button”, and animate the left position of the content element by 200 pixels to the left or right, depending on the button that was clicked. The animation will take 500 milliseconds to complete.

  1. Make sure to include jQuery in your HTML code before the script that you just created. Here’s an example:
<script src=""></script>
  // Add the JavaScript code here

That’s it! Now, when the user clicks the left or right button, the content element will animate smoothly in the corresponding direction. You can customize the animation by changing the values in the animate function, such as the distance and duration.
