Lesson 16. Using DHTML Effects > Adding Page Transitions

Adding Page Transitions

A page transition is a visual effect that will act on the entire Web page when the page is entered or exited (transitions can also be setup that are triggered when a visitor enters or exits your Web site. The transition is a visual intermediary event as you move to or from the page that you have assigned the transition to. FrontPage offers a number of different page transition types:

  • Wipes: The contents of the page are cleared from one side of the page to another. For example, a wipe down wipes the page from top to bottom. Up, down, right, and left wipes are available.

  • Blinds: As the name implies, a blind transition looks like the opening or closing of a window blind. Both vertical and horizontal blinds are available.

  • Box: The browser window is closed down or opened up using a rectangular frame. Both a box in and box out are available. Figure 16.1 shows a box in transition from one Web page to another.

    Figure 16.1. Page transitions can add interest to your Web site.

  • Circle: The browser window is closed down or opened up using a circular frame. You can choose from circle in or circle out transitions.

  • Split: The browser window is split by a vertical or horizontal line that wipes the page either in or out. Vertical and horizontal splits are available.

  • Dissolve: The Web page is basically pixilated as the text and images on it appear when you access the page.
