Fade and Destroy Elements

One of my favorite methods that I use constantly in various interfaces combines fading and removing of an element. It could be a table row, or list item, or a div, but often times when I wanted to remove something, I’d like it to remove with a fade. And not always wanting to write to listen for the complete event and then remove the element.

fadeAndDestroy: function(duration) {
	duration = duration || 600;
	var el = this;
	this.set('tween', {
		duration: duration
	}).fade('out').get('tween').chain(function() {

You’d proceed to use this combo function like so:

  • #javascript
  • #mootools
