How do you make an element flash in jQuery

0 votes
I'm brand new to jQuery and have some experience using Prototype. In Prototype, there is a method to "flash" an element — ie. briefly highlight it in another color and have it fade back to normal so that the user's eye is drawn to it. Is there such a method in jQuery? I see fadeIn, fadeOut, and animate, but I don't see anything like "flash". Perhaps one of these three can be used with appropriate inputs?

If all you want is that yellow "flash" effect without loading jquery color: var flash = function(elements) { var opacity = 100; var color = "255, 255, 20" // has to be in this format since we use rgba var interval = setInterval(function() { opacity -= 3; if (opacity <= 0) clearInterval(interval); $(elements).
