Blinds Transition
Posted: 27 Oct 2005 02:05 AM
Here's a transition set that I put together, from info from the Msdn pages. It transitions w/a window blinds effect. Pardon if it's already been posted.
-------------------------------------------------
<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0" >
<Transitions>
<TransitionDLL guid="{9A4A4A51-FB3A-4F4B-9B57-A2912A289769}">

<Transition name="Blinds: horizontal up" iconid="37" comment="Horizontal blinds up">
<Param name="bands" value="8"/>
<Param name="direction" value="UP"/>
</Transition>

<Transition name="Blinds: horizontal down" iconid="37" comment="Horizontal blinds down">
<Param name="bands" value="8"/>
<Param name="direction" value="DOWN"/>
</Transition>

<Transition name="Blinds: vertical right" iconid="37" comment="Vertical blinds right">
<Param name="bands" value="8"/>
<Param name="direction" value="RIGHT"/>
</Transition>

<Transition name="Blinds: vertical left" iconid="37" comment="Vertical blinds left">
<Param name="bands" value="8"/>
<Param name="direction" value="LEFT"/>
</Transition>

</TransitionDLL>
</Transitions>
</TransitionsAndEffects>
---------------------------------------------------------

Note: I haven't figured out how to make Icons yet, so I just used the bars iconid="37". If you have the 'Cool Gradients 2' dll package, you could substitute a couple of their icons, which provide a better visual description. Just substitute the first line of code w/this line:
<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0" SpecialIconFileID="2013" SpecialIconResourceID="101" >

...and then sub in the iconId="1" for the 2 vertical transitions, and sub in the iconid="11" for the 2 horizontal transitions.

In these transitions, the number of 'bands' can also be adjusted in the 'value' parameter from 2-10.
