jqDock – jQuery Fish Eye Menu

Posted · Category: GPL License, Menu, MIT License

The Dock is a set of iconic images that expand when rolled over with the cursor, and usually perform some action when clicked. jqDock is a jQuery plugin that mimics that behaviour by transforming a contiguous set of HTML images into an expanding Dock, vertical or horizontal, with or without labels.

Basically, jqDock expands a reduced size image towards its full size when the cursor is on or near it. You can specify a vertical or horizontal orientation for the Dock, and select the direction in which the image should expand and whether to show labels or not. The styling and positioning of the Dock is (almost) entirely down to you.

You should also check out other Fish Eye Menus we mentioned earlier.

    Cheers – I like jQuery. There’s a nice code example of mac-like dock at CodeRun.com (go to Code Search)

  • Very nice indeed, although there seems to be a problem with the initial animation when the cursor hovers the dock– the animation is not even close to being smooth.

  • I like these Docks. It mimics MAC interface ;)

  • 100% CPU usage… just like many of these gizmos… does the job, but lacks to consider other very important aspects of GUI principles!!!

  • Great work.
    thanks :)

  • its cool dude i’ll use in my nxt layout…
