Using Page Transitions

This particular DHTML feature lets you create video-like transitions when a site visitor enters or leaves a page or your site. FrontPage includes more than 20 transition effects. While they are very cool, use page transitions only if you’re creating a corporate intranet where you know for certain that everyone is using the Windows version of the Internet Explorer 4 or 5 browser. Page transitions don’t work with other browsers, so be careful not to exclude those users.

To add page transitions

1.
Make sure you’re in page view and the Normal tab is selected. Click anywhere in the page and choose Format > Page Transition (Figure 14.49).

Figure 14.49. To add page transitions, choose Format > Page Transition.


2.
When the Page Transitions dialog box appears (Figure 14.50), use the Event drop-down menu to select when the effect will be applied.

3.
Use the Transition effect scrolling menu box to select which effect will be applied.

4.
Enter a number in the Duration (seconds) text box to set how long the transition will take to complete.

5.
Once you’ve made your selections, click OK. Click the Preview tab in FrontPage’s main window to see how the transition looks.
