I'm about to build a Flex application with a rather "graphic
and animation heavy" menu system. Here's what it should end up as:
- All menu items are loaded dynamically from an XML file
- The menu will be horizontal and have about 10 buttons
- on rollOver on a menu item an arrow will appear beneath the
item and the arrow will animate into a large info box containing
text and buttons explaining the menu item.
- on rollOver on another menu item the current active info
box will animate back into its menu button and a new animation will
appear with a new info box from beneath the selected menu item.
I hope the above makes sense!
How would go go about creating a menu with so much animation
I will probably have to create some components in Flash, but
will Flex 3 be a much better solution than Flex 2?
Would it make sense to code animations on the components, and
what are the options for that?
