Chapter 35. Cross-Browser DHTML Examples > Some Notes Before We Begin

Some Notes Before We Begin

Chapter 34, "Cross-Browser Solutions: Detection and Generic Functions," showed you how to use a custom object as a front end to hide the code necessary to produce cross-browser DHTML effects. It also introduced you to over three dozen generic functions that implemented the various methods of the custom object. In this chapter, you'll see how to use these methods to create interesting and useful DHTML effects. In each of the thirteen examples in this chapter, I use the same basic three-step process:

  1. Create a positioned <div> tag (or tags) to use for the dynamic effect or animation.

  2. "Initialize" the DHTML by running the create_object_array() function to create a custom object front-end for the <div> tag (or tags).

  3. Use the custom object's cross-browser methods to manipulate the <div> tag (or tags) and produce the effect.
