View Full Version : Faq for animation / effect

31 Aug 2011, 7:17 AM

I'm trying to add some effects to my application but I don't really understand how to do it (for example to add an effect with show (http://docs.sencha.com/ext-js/4-0/#!/api/Ext.Component-method-show)( [String/Ext.Element animateTarget], [Function callback], [Object scope] ) method when opening a popup, ...).
Is there a faq or example to do it ?

For the show() method there isn't much you can do by way of animation. The method allows you to specify an element, animateTarget, which be used to display an effect that makes the component being shown appear to launch out of the specified element.

Other effects for showing things work directly with elements, not components, but that doesn't mean you can't use them. Usually you'd do component.getEl() and then apply an animation to that element. Then you can use effects like fadeIn() on it.
