http://www.youngpup.net/, has a really cool effect with its lower main frame. It seems to me that he/she is using a script, to make other contented frames (resizable) slide in from the side and the bottom and etc. I was curious if anyone has seen or has an idea on how he/she did that, I would appreciate a lead so I can figure it out. I like the effect that it gives and any help to try to figure out how it was done will be greatly appreciated.

Just click on one of the nav links such as Experiments or something and follow one of the links that proceed.

Look at the bottom of his page and I think he has a "how does this work" link.

These aren't actually frames, I believe he is writing out DIV's with the overflow property set to "scroll"

Something like this

<div style="height: 100; width: 100; overflow: scroll">
This is a lot of different text
This is a lot of different text
This is a lot of different text
This is a lot of different text
This is a lot of different text
This is a lot of different text
This is a lot of different text
This is a lot of different text
This is a lot of different text
</div>


Throw that in an HTML page and you should see what I mean. Then the rest is just moving around and sizing some divs which is pretty easy.

Hey, thanks for the help. I see the link for the file to be downloaded "How does this work?"
but the file are just the .asp's and the .xml's, which are vital but the most vital file is the .xml file that is requested from those pages. They are called from their origin on the web, not from a relative path from the file. It is a direct path ex. http://www.youngpup.net/?request=/news/2003-6.xml , not something like ex. news/2003-6.xml where its called from a local dir. But I am not sure myself. Cause those frames slide in and I dont think regular div tags are gonna do it.

But thanks anyway.

Actually that link to how to do it is the whole site including the JS needed and the ASP used to parse the pages. It's a very complicated (yet elegant) system.

The XML is just the data not the presentation code (as it should be) you can see it here

It will take a lot of reverse engineering but the code is all in that zip file.

may I suggest that you just email youngpup (he is a guy), i'm sure you'll find him helpful enough to answer your questions, he can tell you best of all how his site works.

Actually, the reason he released the source to his site was because he constantly got flooded with emails about how he made his website, so any reply you get will likely point you to the source he released anyhow.

Besides, if you can't figure it out on your own or from the suggestions here or form the source code provided, maybe you should focus on something smaller untill you learn enough about DHTML and Javascript to tackle something like this.

Hey, Maybe I should try something a little less complicated. But it does not hurt to try to advance by asking. We all learn in different ways and and I did not know that being curious about something was a crime. Well thanks to everyone for the info. But ill keep trying.
