How can I transition height: 0; to height: auto; using CSS?

648

I am trying to make a <ul> slide down using CSS transitions.

The <ul> starts off at height: 0;. On hover, the height is set to height:auto;. However, this is causing it to simply appear, not transition,

If I do it from height: 40px; to height: auto;, then it will slide up to height: 0;, and then suddenly jump to the correct height.

How else could I do this?

 

#child0 {
    height: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    background-color: #dedede;
    -moz-transition: height 1s ease;
    -webkit-transition: height 1s ease;
    -o-transition: height 1s ease;
    transition: height 1s ease;
}
#parent0:hover #child0 {
    height: auto;
}
#child40 {
    height: 40px;
    overflow: hidden;
    background-color: #dedede;
    -moz-transition: height 1s ease;
    -webkit-transition: height 1s ease;
    -o-transition: height 1s ease;
    transition: height 1s ease;
}
#parent40:hover #child40 {
    height: auto;
}
h1 {
    font-weight: bold;
}
The only difference between the two snippets of CSS is one has height: 0, the other height: 40.

        <br />Some content
        <br />Some content
        <br />Some content
        <br />
    </div>

    </div>
</div>
