In my earlier articles on animation
, I discussed various slide, grow and flip transitions for items and containers. In this article I want to discuss a fade animation and specifically the use of fades and auto-dismissal for informational dialogs. If you use a Mac, you may be familiar with Growl
as a notification system, and the nice way that messages that are informational just fade out after a few seconds. So in this blog entry I wanted to discuss how we could make an ADF popup behave in the same way. This can be an effective way of communicating information to the user without "getting in the way" with modal alerts.
