Javascript

Here is the list of javascript lib that we need to make the menu works

  • jquery-1.2.3.js: Off course.
  • jquery.easing.1.3.js: Easing function for the animation.
  • jquery.kwicks-1.5.1.js: our dude here.

And ….

Copy & paste the hold thing below for the job done, but it’s just a little bit code I got. Put it in <head> tag:

<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/jquery-1.2.3.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/jquery.easing.1.3.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/jquery.kwicks-1.5.1.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
   $().ready(function() {
    $('.kwicks').kwicks({
     max : 200,
     duration: 800,  
     easing: 'easeOutQuint'
    });
   });
</script>
