List of Transitions and aligning Menu

Poster: NormalGod
Dated: Tuesday September 2 2003 - 3:58:59 BST

I have two questions that I would really appreciate being answered:

1) There used to be a whole list on the old site of transitions and effects that you could manipulate right there, and see in action. Is this list gone, in re-development, or moved? Regardless, could someone please post the old list here?

2) On my site ( I can not get the menu, nor any of the page elements to seamlessly align with the left and top of the screen. How do you do this?
A good example of the aligment I'm trying to get is at

Thanks to any who can help.

If you have position="center;middle"; remove it and use left= & top=


I'm guessing, may need to see your data.

menu_data.js at:

I was also wondering about all the other page elements, and why they won't slide over.

When the menu is alone, I can get it to align with the IE window, but when I put it in a table cell, it shifts over with everything else.

I'm not sure what you are asking. This is what you have now in the table setup
<table align="left" width="75%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0">
<tr bgcolor="FFFFFF"><td colspan=2><img src="menu_head.jpg" alt="Welcome" align="left" height="120" width="547" border="0"></td></tr>
<tr><td align="left" bgcolor="D3D3D3" colspan=2><script> milonic script here</script></td></tr>

That places the menu below the header image. Switch these around and the menu will come up above that image and be at the top. As for the all the way at the top and left, even with the table border set at zero, browsers have a default 'margin'. I use this code and it eliminates the margins, at least in some browsers, but be aware it will shift the whole table and everything in it all the way left and top.
<body bgcolor="green" leftMargin="0" topMargin="0" VSPACE="0" HSPACE="0" MARGINWIDTH="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0">

And I went to the link you gave as an example and didn't even see a menu, only drop type 'pick your country' thing and pictures above.

Try this and see if it's what you mean.

Also, here about the middle of the page of the Horizontal Menu explanation are links for explaining positioning in more detail, including one for attached to a table cell.

RE the filters list, go to and scroll to the bottom and you will see all the filters available from microsoft. Clicking on them shows you how to implement them.
Basically you can use any that MS has, but obivously the ones that are best are the ones you see in the examples. I have successfully implemented motionblur, blur and glow as effects. You can get some neat effects going, try blur, it will make your users think they are loosing their eyesight...hehe :}

Thank you for the useful link.

I notice that shadow has transparency, after I removed opaque I still get a seethrough submenu, not understanding how to implement the effect, do I change shadow values to obtain a white bgcolor, if I change color to #FFFFFF I think I will lose shadow?

overfilter = "Fade(duration=0.2);Shadow(color='#777777',Direction=135, Strength=5)";
outfilter = "randomdissolve(duration=0.3)";

You wont loose the shadow, it will just be white and fade to nothing. Obviously if you have a white background on your site, it will look like its missing. But the color sets what the color of the shadow is closest to the object being shadowed, and then the strength and direction determine in what direction and how many pixels it takes for the opacity of that color to drop to nothing.
