04.26.2004 - Scrolling & Expanding List
Another flash inspired project for you today, the Scrolling & Expanding List. I'm not able to point to anything specific, but I know I've seen this done in Flash before. Either that or I saw it done in DHTML and am subconsciously re-efforting someone else's work...but then this wouldn't be the first time.
At any rate, this project follows along with my new goal of applying interesting behavior to standard markup. This takes a regular list of twenty items, places them in a 60 pixel tall container element with a hidden overflow and allows for scrolling the data up and down in a sort of "bouncy" manner, as well as expanding the list in a fluid, animated motion.
Tested and works in Netscape 6+, Opera 7+, MSIE6, MacIE 5.2, OmniWeb 4.5, Firefox, Mozilla and Safari. I'm only able to test in Safari 1.0 and it has issues with the expanding bit, as does OmniWeb, though I'd like to think that later versions have a better time with it. I've no idea how Konqueror feels about it as my video card in that box has apparently died.
