the animator


// Animate (11-January-2010)
// by Vic Phillips http://www.vicsjavascripts.org.uk

// To progressively change the Left, Top, Width, Height or Opacity of an element over a specified period of time.
// With the ability to scale the effect time on specified minimum/maximum values
// and with three types of progression 'sin' and 'cos' and liner.

// **** Application Notes

// **** The HTML Code
//
// when moving an element the inline or class rule style position of the element should be assigned as
// 'position:relative;' or 'position:absolute;'
//
// The element would normally be assigned a unique ID name.
//

// **** Initialising the Script.
//
// The script is initialised by assigning an instance of the script to a variable.
// e.g A = new zxcAnimate('left','id1')
// where:
// A = a global variable (variable)
// parameter 0 = the mode(see Note 1). (string)
// parameter 1 = the unique ID name or element object. (string or element object)
// parameter 1 = the initial value. (digits, default = 0)

// **** Executing the Effect
//
// The effect is executed by an event call to function 'A.animate(10,800 ,5000,[10,800]);'
// where:
// A = the global referencing the script instance. (variable)
// parameter 0 = the start value. (digits, for opacity minimum 0, maximum 100)
// parameter 1 = the finish value. (digits, for opacity minimum 0, maximum 100)
// parameter 2 = period of time between the start and finish of the effect in milliseconds. (digits or defaults to previous or 0(on first call) milliSeconds)
// parameter 3 = (optional) to scale the effect time on a specified minimum/maximum. (array, see Note 3)
// field 0 the minimum value. (digits)
// field 1 the maximum value. (digits)
// parameter 3 = (optional) the type of progression, 'sin', 'cos' or 'liner'. (string, default = 'liner')
// 'sin' progression starts fast and ends slow.
// 'cos' progression starts slow and ends fast.
//
// Note 1: Examples modes: 'left', 'top', 'width', 'height', 'opacity.
// Note 2: The default units(excepting opacity) are 'px'.
// For hyphenated modes, the first character after the hyphen must be upper case, all others lower case.
// Note 3: The scale is of particular use when re-calling the effect
// in mid progression to retain an constant rate of progression.
// Note 4: The current effect value is recorded in A.data[0].
// Note 5: A function may be called on completion of the effect by assigning the function
// to the animator intance property .Complete.
// e.g. [instance].Complete=function(){ alert(this.data[0]); };
//



// **** Functional Code(1.58K) - NO NEED to Change

function zxcAnimate(mde,obj,srt){
this.to=null;
this.obj=typeof(obj)=='object'?obj:document.getElementById(obj);
this.mde=mde.replace(/\W/g,'');
this.data=[srt||0];
return this;
}

zxcAnimate.prototype.animate=function(srt,fin,ms,scale,c){
clearTimeout(this.to);
this.time=ms||this.time||0;
this.neg=srt<0||fin<0;
this.data=[srt,srt,fin];
this.mS=this.time*(!scale?1:Math.abs((fin-srt)/(scale[1]-scale[0])));
this.c=typeof(c)=='string'?c.charAt(0).toLowerCase():this.c?this.c:'';
this.inc=Math.PI/(2*this.mS);
this.srttime=new Date().getTime();
this.cng();
}

zxcAnimate.prototype.cng=function(){
var oop=this,ms=new Date().getTime()-this.srttime;
this.data[0]=(this.c=='s')?(this.data[2]-this.data[1])*Math.sin(this.inc*ms)+this.data[1]:(this.c=='c')?this.data[2]-(this.data[2]-this.data[1])*Math.cos(this.inc*ms):(this.data[2]-this.data[1])/this.mS*ms+this.data[1];
this.apply();
if (ms<this.mS) this.to=setTimeout(function(){oop.cng()},10);
else {
this.data[0]=this.data[2];
this.apply();
if (this.Complete) this.Complete(this);
}
}

zxcAnimate.prototype.apply=function(){
if (isFinite(this.data[0])){
if (this.data[0]<0&&!this.neg) this.data[0]=0;
if (this.mde!='opacity') this.obj.style[this.mde]=Math.floor(this.data[0])+'px';
else zxcOpacity(this.obj,this.data[0]);
}
}

function zxcOpacity(obj,opc){
if (opc<0||opc>100) return;
obj.style.filter='alpha(opacity='+opc+')';
obj.style.opacity=obj.style.MozOpacity=obj.style.KhtmlOpacity=opc/100-.001;
}




initialise by (just before the </BODY> tag) ie one the page has loaded


var M=new MenuPop({
MenuArray:menu,
EffectDuration:500
});

the way your main menu is constructed with overlapping images makes the sub menus difficult to trigger
