Need documentation for "animate.js"

Hello all;

I've been able to locate, and download, the source for "animate.js" from a
number of web sites, but have not been able to find *any* documentation on
this script.

Does anyone have any docs, or point to where they are? (I've tried about a
dozen different search term combinations on google -- but no joy!!)

TIA

Charles...

Wow... that is a vague request. Any one can write a file, and call it
"animate.js". As far as I can tell, MS FrontPage includes a file called
"animage.js". Is this the file you are looking for?

If this is the case, it probably does not have documentaiton. It is
probably used with WYSIWYG controls, and auto-generated code.

But without having any clue to what you are really talking about, this
is the best I can do. Can you post a link to the code? Do you know its
origins?

Vague?? No kidding!! I found the code, but no documentation, I have no idea
about its origins, nor who wrote it. But I gotta start somewhere, right?

I do not know whether it is the file included with MS FrontPage, but here is
a link to the file I found:

Thanks

Ok, at the top of the script, it says the following:

// See KB article about changing this dynamic HTML

After doing a Google search on this, I was able to figure out that KB
means Knowledge Base, aka MSDN Knowledge base.

http://msdn.microsoft.com

From there, I searched for animate.js, and sure enough, a bunch of
hits, though none are actual documentation.

There is probably a good reason for this. The code is not yours to use.
It is Microsoft's code, and you can use it, if Front Page includes it
for you.

Yea, I know -- I found the same hits -- but no documentation.

Oh well, It looked like a real good script to animate gif images.

Thanks for the help.

Hmmmm... All you need is to animate gifs? Dont do it with Javascript.
Use animated gifs!!! The GIF file format has it built in to do
animations. Download a GIF animation tool that will put them together
in a single file.

Doing it this way has many advantages:
1. A single, more compressed file
2. More fluid animation
3. Does not require the browser to have Javascript turned on
