    Help Navigation issue!

    Hi
    I would like some help around building a special navigation thing that I have seen (I saw it awhile ago) and is now wondering if this is possible in FrontPage(of course it is...)

    I would like to build something like this, trying with some steps describe what i want to do.

    Default page built with "shared borders"
    !------!-------------------
    !LINK1 !
    !
    !LINK2 !
    !
    !LINK3 !
    !
    !
    ! --------------------------

    When clicking on the LINK2 I want to have a line drawing like this...
    (exclude the dots only to get the drawing right)

    !---------!-------------------!
    !LINK1!
    !
    !LINK2!-------
    !..................!
    !LINK3!.........!
    !..................!----->
    !
    ! ---------------------------

    ...and when I am clicking on LINK3 I want a smooth transition like this...

    !-------------------------!
    !LINK1!
    !
    !LINK2!
    !
    !LINK3!-------
    !..................!----->
    !
    !---------------------------


    I want the bottom line with the arrow to stay at the same level and decrease the horizontal line smoothly...

    I hope you understand what I mean.

    Many thanks for you help

    Jonas,

    something like this should be possible using a number of images, but you can forget about Frontpage's shared borders. In a theme, you can influence appearence of a button on a button level, so each button will look like you specified (only with different texts), but what you want acts on the entire menu, and i can't see Frontpage doing that.
    I guess you'll have to come up with something yourself.
    Regards,
    Ronald.

    I beleive the best way to do this is to use a "onclick" javascript program and a animated gif
