CSS Question

How do I align text/class with the button in the <style> tag when it won't center in css or style tag?

I put

margin-auto
in the
toggle
class on my site. It sort of went it the middle but it didn't align with the button. Do I need to do something in CSS or JavaScript and what should I place there?



<style>
.toggler { width: 500px; height: 200px; position: relative; margin-top:0; margin-right:auto; margin-bottom:0;
}
#button { padding: .5em 1em; text-decoration: none; }
#effect { width: 240px; height: 170px; padding: 0.4em; position: relative; }
#effect h3 { margin: 0; padding: 0.4em; text-align: center; }
.ui-effects-transfer { border: 2px dotted gray; }
.kiri{text-align:center;}
</style>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.js"></script>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/ui/1.12.0/jquery-ui.js"></script>
<script>
$( function() {
// run the currently selected effect
function runEffect() {
// get effect type from
var selectedEffect = $( "#effectTypes" ).val();

// Most effect types need no options passed by default
var options = {};
// some effects have required parameters
if ( selectedEffect === "scale" ) {
options = { percent: 50 };
} else if ( selectedEffect === "transfer" ) {
options = { to: "#button", className: "ui-effects-transfer" };
} else if ( selectedEffect === "size" ) {
options = { to: { width: 200, height: 60 } };
}

// Run the effect
$( "#effect" ).effect( selectedEffect, options, 500, callback );
};

// Callback function to bring a hidden box back
function callback() {
setTimeout(function() {
$( "#effect" ).removeAttr( "style" ).hide().fadeIn();
}, 1000 );
};

// Set effect from select menu value
$( "#button" ).on( "click", function() {
runEffect();
return false;
});
} );
</script>
</head>

Answer

Add margin: 0 auto; to both .toggler and #effect and it should do the trick. Since you set a width on #effect you'll need the auto margin to handle the centering for you.
