This is my first post and I am hoping you are not a bunch of sharks that are after my bleeding appendages. I need some guidance with a current web design project that I am doing.
The site itself is a fixed framing of about 800 x 600 pixels.
At the bottom of the site there are six navigation buttons.
The 6 buttons trigger a SMALLER inset frame in the middle of the site design.
How can I achieve the following?
When the user highlights one of these navigation buttons, the following happens:
The navigation button font changes colors and plays a sound signifying hover, and a sub-menu extends above revealing sub-catgeories for the user to pick.
ONCE A sub category is SELECTED,
The following happens:
Information in the little INSET window CHANGES
The background of the "HOST" site, carrying the frame with changing content, FADES SMOOTHLY into a different set image. (The portions of the website that are BEHIND the text information frame.)
Id like to avoid using flash if possible, so if having a sound means flash id rather do without.
Does this make sense?
If anyone can help Id be so thankful!
have a happy day!
If you are looking to avoid a Flash solution, you should post this in a non-Flash forum. Try the Dreamweaver forum: http://forums.adobe.com/community/dreamweaver/dreamweaver_general... there's plenty of folks there that don't care for Flash that should hopefully be able to offer a non-Flash solution.... though what you described sounds like a complete Flash design may be appropriate, not just the sound aspect.
More than likely you will need to avoid the sound if you are not wanting to use flash at all. If you use embed tag with html.. most browser will just download the sound.
