Using Combination Effects with the Scriptaculous DHTML Library
(Page 1 of 4 )


And speaking of DHTML effects, certainly you’ll recall that in the previous article of the series, I explained how to achieve more complex animations with the Scriptaculous framework by using a group of predefined effects, which are called a “combination.” These pre-built animations make it easy to develop web-based user interfaces that are quite attractive for potential visitors, while keeping the corresponding (X) structural HTML markup of the respective web documents completely free from unwanted, obtrusive JavaScript code.

However, despite the fact that I already reviewed a respectable number of visual effects that come bundled with the Scriptaculous JavaScript library, including those considered basic and some “combinations” too, the truth is that there are still many more DHTML animations that deserve a closer look. They can be potentially useful, particularly if you want to get the most out of this excellent software package.

Thus, taking into account this important fact, I’m going to dedicate this last tutorial of the series to discussing the combination effects that remain uncovered. As you'll see, they can be pretty handy for building eye-catching front-ends for different web applications.

Hopefully, by the end of this article you should have a solid background on how to use the entire set of visual animations that come integrated with Scriptaculous, something that can be really helpful, especially if you work with DHTML applications on a frequent basis.

Having established the subject of this final article of the series, let’s move on and continue learning how to use the remaining animation effects included with Scriptaculous library. Let’s get started now!
