Dynamic Ajax Content- Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (www.dynamicdrive.com)


I am currently using dynamic ajax content script to pull pages from links to my content div.

however, by doing this, i seem to be unable to allow for animated div effects such as sliding.

1) How can i add the functionality to include the content div to slide up and down before the new content is shown?

the script is as follows:

* Dynamic Ajax Content- Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (www.dynamicdrive.com)
* This notice MUST stay intact for legal use
* Visit Dynamic Drive at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ for full source code

var bustcachevar=1 //bust potential caching of external pages after initial request? (1=yes, 0=no)
var loadedobjects=""
var rootdomain="http://"+window.location.hostname
var bustcacheparameter=""

function ajaxpage(url, containerid){
var page_request = false
if (window.XMLHttpRequest) // if Mozilla, Safari etc
page_request = new XMLHttpRequest()
else if (window.ActiveXObject){ // if IE
try {
page_request = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP")
catch (e){
page_request = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
catch (e){}
return false
loadpage(page_request, containerid)
if (bustcachevar) //if bust caching of external page
bustcacheparameter=(url.indexOf("?")!=-1)? "&"+new Date().getTime() : "?"+new Date().getTime()
page_request.open('GET', url+bustcacheparameter, true)

function loadpage(page_request, containerid){
if (page_request.readyState == 4 && (page_request.status==200 || window.location.href.indexOf("http")==-1))

function loadobjs(){
if (!document.getElementById)
for (i=0; i<arguments.length; i++){
var file=arguments[i]
var fileref=""
if (loadedobjects.indexOf(file)==-1){ //Check to see if this object has not already been added to page before proceeding
if (file.indexOf(".js")!=-1){ //If object is a js file
fileref.setAttribute("src", file);
else if (file.indexOf(".css")!=-1){ //If object is a css file
fileref.setAttribute("rel", "stylesheet");
fileref.setAttribute("type", "text/css");
fileref.setAttribute("href", file);
if (fileref!=""){
loadedobjects+=file+" " //Remember this object as being already added to page

which is called by the following method

<li><a href="javascript:ajaxpage('<?php echo str_replace('&', '&amp;', $information['href']); ?>', 'content');loadobjs('catalog/view/theme/non-inline/stylesheet/stylesheet.css')"><?php echo $information['title']; ?></a></li>

and places the content inside

<div id="content"></div>

the page loads content correctly, upon each link that is generated, but like i say, how can i include animations to the script to execute before the new content is loaded?
