First we start of with the necessary file includes:

[removed]<!--mce:0-->[removed]
[removed]<!--mce:1-->[removed]
[removed]<!--mce:2-->[removed]

Let’s set the height of the contactArea div to the desired height in the css. We’re going to hide it with jQuery so that anyone with javascript turned off will still see the form and be able to use it.

#contactArea { height: 225px; }

Of course we need to start off with the $(document).ready() function so that jQuery knows what code to load and use.

$(document).ready(function() {

// put all your jQuery goodness in here.

});

The first line of code is going to be the code mentioned earlier to hide the contactArea div. Here we are basically telling jQuery to set the height of #contactArea to 0.

$(document).ready(function(){ 

$("#contactArea").css('height', '0px');

});

time to tell jQuery to do something when the button is clicked. Obviously we want the contact us area to slide out from the top of the page to reveal the form. We will also want to hide the area when the button is clicked again. This is achieved by using jQuery’s built-in toggle function.

$(document).ready(function(){ 

$("#contactArea").css('height', '0px');

$("a.contact").toggle(
function () {
$("#contactArea").animate({height: "225px"}, {queue:false, duration: 1700, easing: 'easeOutBounce'})
},
function () {
$("#contactArea").animate({height: "0px"}, {queue:false, duration: 1700, easing: 'easeOutBounce'})
}
);

});
