jQuery Question

jQuery setting height of iframe based on if else condition upon click event?

Hi guys I have an iframe that changes in height every time I click on my div with the class "top". The code starts with the deault height of 300 and when I click my div "top" the height drops to 0. However when I click on my div again the height won't go to 300 as I want it to.

JS, CSS and HTML files in order:

$(document).ready(function () {
var height = $("#target").height();
if(height === 300 ){
} else{

.top {
height: 100px;
width: 300px;
background-color: green;
.cb {
position: fixed;
right: 0;
bottom: 0;

<script src=""></script>
<div class="cb">
<div class="top"></div>
<iframe id="target" src="" width="300" height="300" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

I'm new to jQuery So please advice me how I can implement a slide up and down function too on my iframe so when I click the div it will slide up and down nicely. Thanks and have a great day!

 if(height = 300)

should be


or better yet (check type in addition to value)


Since "height = 300" is an expression, it's assigning a variable named 'height' to 300. In a conditional statement, this returns true every time. Here is more information on conditional operators:
