dojox.widget.rotator.Slide

Authors:Chris Barber
Project owner:Chris Barber
Available:since V1.4

A slide transition for a dojox.widget.Rotator or dojox.widget.AutoRotator.

Usage

The slide rotator transition is not an instantiated object, but rather a series of functions which consist of:

  • slideDown() - Returns a dojo.Animation that slides in the next rotator pane from the top.
  • slideRight() - Returns a dojo.Animation that slides in the next rotator pane from the right.
  • slideUp() - Returns a dojo.Animation that slides in the next rotator pane from the bottom.
  • slideLeft() - Returns a dojo.Animation that slides in the next rotator pane from the left.

These functions are invoked by the rotator and may be different per pane.

Each function is passed an object containing the “transitionParams” along with the rotator’s current and next pane which are to be panned, then returns a dojo.Animation object describing the animated sequence.

Examples
