<div class='toggler'>
    <div id='effect' class='ui-widget-content ui-corner-all'>
        <h3 class='ui-widget-header ui-corner-all'>Animate</h3>

            I am changing color and please ignore me my friend.

<a href='#' id='button' class='ui-state-default ui-corner-all'>Toggle Effect</a>

Try The Code

Clicking on the Toggle Effect button will change the background color of the div box with id=’effect’ to #aa0000.
