Sliding Boxes and Captions with jQuery

Check the project page for the latest release notes and features! The Basic Idea All of these sliding box animations work on the same basic idea. Confused? From this basic idea we can play around with animations of the sliding element to either show or cover up the viewing area, thus creating the sliding effect. Step 1 – CSS Foundation Work Given the basic structure outlined in the helpful image above, we will need to use a little bit of CSS to make it work as intended. The following defines the viewing window (.boxgrid) and sets the default position for images within it to the top left.

Documentation Spritely is a simple plugin with only two key methods, sprite() and pan() both of which simply animate the background-image css property of an element. The difference between the two is that a 'sprite' image contains two or more 'frames' of animation, whereas a 'pan' image contains a continuous image which pans left or right and then repeats. Typically, in either case, you would use a png file (with or without transparency) for this. You might wish to use a transparent gif for Internet Explorer 6, though it probably won't look as good. Your html elements must already be the correct size you want the sprite to appear, but the background image will typically be larger than the html element, and the spritely methods reposition the background image within the html element.
