    help with creating basic menu using AS

    justdeandre
      i am working on a portfolio site for my friend who is a photographer and am looking to create a basic menu that when any menu item is moused over it enlarges and the other menu items move to make room for this enlarged menu item. i have tried to show this in the attached image.

      it would be much appreciated if someone could offer me some assistance or tips. thank you.

          Hello and welcome to the forums,

          What I would do there is use something like "Tweener", found at http://code.google.com/p/tweener/. This is built to work with AS 2.0 and 3.0. You could also use Mc Tween, found at http://hosted.zeh.com.br/mctween/. I am most comfortable with Mc Tween, I just haven't had time to look at Tweener. Basically it would work something like the following....

          What the code does is when you rollover the menu item, it will scale to 110% of its original size and when you rollout it scales to 100%...

          In order to use mc tween, you have to download and install the extenstion first.

          Once you've done that you will be all set... but if you plan on eventually using AS 3.0, check out Tweener.

          HTH,

          Doug
