Because transitions run asynchronously, you must track each transition state through onfilterchange events to determine when a particular transition is finished. GIF images must be in gif89a format with a transparent color to display these filters properly.
Even when dynamically adding filters, in most cases you should add the filter to the initial filter declaration in the object’s style sheet with the Enabled property set to false. The second filter flips the image vertically. Filters are considered subobjects of the object to which they are attached. You can use timers to create cyclical effects.
Best of all, this is all done in code and doesn’t require downloading additional graphics from a server. A transition provides an animated effect to display the new image. The Alpha Channel filter alters the opacity of the object, which makes it blend into the background. To see the Filters and Transitions Interactive Demo, which demonstrates most of the filters and transitions, click the following button.

The following example uses transitions to display information in an interesting manner as the page loads. Introduction to Filters and Transitions.
An object’s boundary can be clipped when it is set too close to the filtered content. In the example, using BasicImage’s Mirror and Rotation properties gives the appearance of flipping the image vertically. This allows changes to be made without affecting the display immediately. This raises the question, “Why use filters if script can do the job? It is useless to try to apply and change a filter on an object before the browser can even render it.
Another option is to wrap the changes in a larger object and apply the transition to the larger object. To ensure updates are performed for each cycle of the script, use an onfilterchange event handler to delay changes in opacity until the browser has rendered the last update.
By continuing to browse this site, you agree to this use. Put simply, having layout means that an object has a defined height and width. When a filter completes a display update or a transition finishes playing, the onfilterchange event is fired.
You can apply multiple filters, as shown in the example.

The Style object also has a dytml property. This is important for filters and transitions that have common properties and methods, such as the Color and play properties. The following scenarios demonstrate adn or interesting applications of filter styles combined with transitions and script functions.
Clicking the button runs the doTrans script, which calls the apply method on the Blinds transition to stop painting the image. You can apply an interpage transition to a page when it is loaded or exited using the same transitions described in the Transitions section above.
You can also apply transitions to make an object fade in or fade out by changing the visibility property.

Each filter can have a set of optional parameters that define the nature of the effect, such as color or duration. This example chains transitions together to make a slide presentation.
The default value is left.
