AutoSprites – A jQuery Menu Plugin
Want an animated menu bar? Use this plugin to create an animated menu bar in your website. This plugin provides animations such as highlighting as the mouse is hovered over the menu items. Such interesting animations add extra effects to the website. There are two orientations, horizontal and vertical. These two orientations give you a new way to showcase your styles in displaying the websites. With such plugins you can create an interesting user experience for the viewers of your website.
Author note: We have written and released a jquery dropdown menu plugin as well as a CSS Sprites2 Plugin — this post is along the same lines. Its purpose is to allow you to build an image-based menu with animated hover states as easily as possible and by using the most concise descriptions possible. To see the results on both a horizontal and vertical menu, check out the demo.
Setting up the jQuery Menu Plugin
The first component when doing something with sprites is a combined image that contains all menu states. For the menu above, this is the image below was used. (This was designed by Liaison Design Group, one of our Partners)
