Transfer Effect

Description: Transfers the outline of an element to another element

  • transfer

    • className
      Type: String
      argumental class name the transfer element will receive.
    • to
      Type: String
      jQuery selector, the element to transfer to.

Very useful when trying to visualize interaction between two elements.

The transfer element itself has the class ui-effects-transfer, and needs to be styled by you, for example by adding a background or border.

Example:

Clicking on the green element transfers to the other.
