Posted · Category: Menu, MIT License

We have seen a lot of Fisheye menus, however The Fisheye component is a bit different to others. It is built with Flex which shows us how the best of what flex gives you (productivity, development process, consistent component model) with the best of what people have been doing in flash for years (rich, highly interactive, fluid, etc).

The Fisheye component is based around the concept of itemRenderer factories, just like the flex list and charting components. The goal is to use composition to separate behaviour from content, so you can reuse the basic fisheye effect across many different applications and uses. It’s available under the MIT Open Source license, so feel free to use it or modify it in your own applications. Check out the 2D Fisheye Demo, it looks really nice.

Mac OS X-Style Dock Menu in Javascript

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

Remember the time when I introduced Nice List of Open Source Fish Eye Menu? The dock’s ‘fish-eye’ effect, whereby icons expand and contract as the mouse moves over them. Now, we have another solution for it, MacStyleDock function allows this feature to be implemented easily.


Safalra has pointed out some usability issues when using dock as well. Anyone considering using the dock should be aware of the usability issues it raises. Firstly, the dock is generated entirely using JavaScript. If no alternative navigation is available then the site will be impossible to navigate for those without JavaScript. Secondly, the dock item magnification itself harms usability. Because the dock icons expand dynamically, they move on screen. The user has to correct for this movement, and this slows down their use of the dock.

Requirements: Any Modern Browsers with Javscript Enabled

Advanced CSS Navigation Menu Trick

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

We are now coming to a point where the browsers are supporting a lot of new features, giving us more opportunities to take advantage of previously unused pseudo elements. Advanced Css Menu Tricks is instead of simply altering the state of the navigation item the user is currently rolling over, we want to alter the non navigation items as well. This will help focus the users attention on the item they have selected on, and create a new look and feel for the site overall.


Advanced Css Menu Tricks will work perfectly in any modern browser, yet still be fully functional in your older version of IE as well.
