Performs an animation that fades an item or set of items out of view.
WinJS.UI.Animation.fadeOut(hidden).done( /* Your success and error handlers */ );
Element or elements being faded out.
Return valueType: Object
An object that completes when the animation is finished.
The hidden parameter of this method can be expressed in several ways:
- As the special value "undefined", which means that the animation has no such target
- As a single object
- As a NodeList (for example, the result of querySelectorAll)
- As an HTMLCollection
If you want to remove an element involved in this animation from the document altogether, doing so before the animation is complete causes the animation to abruptly stop. You should use the Promise to be notified when the animation completes and then remove the element from the document.
