What can do this?

Recommended Posts

I am putting together a basic website and I want to do the following.1) Transition drop down tables that shows up when the user highlights the links2) Tables with colors with some transparency to show the background image3) When certain cells of the table are highlighted, the background color will transition to a different color.I know all these can be done with html and JavaScript, but they will not have the "smooth” transition that makes it look so much better. I really don’t want to pay $1,799.00 for flash just to use 5% of its capabilitiesWhat can I do this with??? other than flash, anything else cheaper??

What makes you think it won't be smooth? Have you looked at the effects available with the latest JavaScript libraries?http://api.jquery.com/category/effects/http://jqueryui.com/

images, CSS3, and certain browsers have proprietary functionality for handling transparency.

1. For a simple page, dojo may be more overkill, you can do this fairly simply with javascripthttp://docs.dojocampus.org/dijit/layout/TabContainer2. Transparencyhttp://www.w3schools.com/Css/css_image_transparency.asp3. Not sure if this is right, but you could use onclick/onhover or pseudo classeshttp://www.w3schools.com/css/css_pseudo_classes.asp

Adobe Flex? Or are you thinking of more of something like JavaFX?
