View Full Version : javascript sliding window/full screen?

12-02-2008, 06:03 AM

I was looking for a "slide out window" similar to what google maps uses.


it has the little arrows to hide control panel (where the icons and whatnot show up on the side). thinking about this (http://blog.paranoidferret.com/?p=4)

I know it is a javascript function, but am unfamiliar in this area. More specifically, how does the map claim the space of the control panel when the panel is minimized?

Just a little confused.

Try jQuery (http://jquery.com). You can make use of the slideToggle() (http://docs.jquery.com/Effects/slideToggle#speedcallback) method.

I had checked that out, I would like to have horizontal sliding, probably an easy fix.

What I am unsure about, is will the screen automatically claim that unused space? Like a resize?

If you don't set any width constraints on the space it should resize to the space available.
