jquery sliding side bar Left to right

I am trying to create a sliding side bar with effects similar to


  1. www.wookmark.com

  2. http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/slideinmenu.htm.



This is how far I wrote the code.But this is jerky.


  1. Can anyone propose a better solution with aniamtions/easing/toggle etc

  2. I want code to be independent of left parameter i.e. $("#slide").css("left", "-150px");
    It should be able to slide-in/slide-out with all sorts of div width



Any ideas ?

CSS

#slide{
border:1.5px solid black;
position:absolute;
top:0;
left:0;
width:150px;
height:100%;
background-color:#F2F2F2;
layer-background-color:#F2F2F2;
}


HTML

<div id="slide" style="left: -150px; top: 0px; width: 160px;">
<p>Something here</p>
</div>


Jquery

<script>
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
$('#slide').mouseover(function() {
$("#slide").css("left", "0px");
});

$('#slide').mouseout(function() {
$("#slide").css("left", "-150px");
});

});
</script>

Answer

You need animate() method -

var width = $('#slide').width() - 10;
$('#slide').hover(function () {
     $(this).stop().animate({left:"0px"},500);     
   },function () {          
     $(this).stop().animate({left: - width  },500);     
});

Here I've added .stop() before. This will clear animation queue that is built up because of moving mouse quickly.
