    animation on container

    Hi,

    I am trying something interesting - but it may not be possible at the moment.
    I have a container which houses three containers.
    maintcontainer{container1,container2,container3}
    Look like so.

    In the ready event (also tried in resize) I increase the size of the main container by 3.
    Leaving me a single visible container.
    Like so.

    If I set the maincontainer.left = maincontainer.left-250. I get the desired affect. All three containers shift (slide) to the left.
    Like so.

    However, If I try to do the same thing using maincontainer.animate(), the screen flickers and then all the containers are returned to their original positions.

    In this type of case, am I better off using a timer, or am I missing something simple?

    Thanks.

    Hi Herb

    no, animate should handle that. Can you package up a .lpk example and attach to a ticket then I will take a look and see what's going on.
