[Pro] Transition FX on a Page?

Hi,

Is it possible to apply a Transition FX or some other simlar action to a page?

I basically have my main page where the user presses a button which spawns a new window. I basically would like to be able to apply a transition effect (zoom/fade-in) to the page, when the user presses the button.

Can anyone pls assist.

Thanks.
Tony.

Based on the 0 replies, I am assuming this is not possible.

Would be great if there was an Action like Transition FX that could be applied to a page and not just an individual item.

‘No answer’ really means nothing more than “no answer” (grin)… but
in this case you’re right: new browser windows can’t be set to fade
in. We’re talking about core OS window drawing routines here, not how
content within a browser window is rendered. No chance of that
whatsoever. Sorry!

What though if you drew an HTML item the size of your page, place within it other items (in the inspector the ‘combine graphics’ will be ticked) and apply the FX to that? I did that with http://www.corneliedejong.nl/ The FX is slide up and everything within the parent item slides up with it on the trigger click and reveals what is behind. Will work with fade or appear too.

Whether this is bad SEO wise has been discussed eleswhere and the conclusion seemed to be that the the text behind the item was not penalised by Google. But who knows.

Thanks Keith for your response and sorry, didn’t mean anything with my “Based on the 0 replies, I am assuming this is not possible.”

I guess I just suspected what you have just confirmed - appreciate your response.

Hey Richard, thanks for your idea and that website where you used it, looks great.

Will try it out.

Thanks.

Tony.

Not a problem - no offence even assumed, let alone taken. :slight_smile:
The idea was an interesting one, and I have authored custom apps that
do that sort of thing at different times in the past. (Using some
very clever window manager code written by a friend.) But this is
very different from working within an existing third-party-app web
browser. And it is also extremely platform-specific.

Finally, if it was an option offered at the OS window-management
level AND it was cross-platform, I’d lay money on it being disallowed
in browsers because of the potential for security breaches. Imagine
the nefarious fun someone could dream up with a spawned browser
window that was set to be 1% or 0% opaque, particularly in a
Windows-based environment?

Richard’s suggestion does offer a way forwards. But make sure you
don’t end up with permanently invisible content if you visit with
JavaScript turned off. I don’t know if that’s really a danger - but
it is worth checking.
