Animating / Sliding Tab

I've been working on my project based on actionBar.js sample. But then I notice that the tabs content are loaded on single HTML file which then switched by javascript (by setting css display).


My question is, how do I get an animated tab effect like in Android? And maybe how to do animation with BBUI.js?


(I've been looking for a way to achieve this, but I only found a JQuery solution on the web, and I see no animation class on BBUI.)


So is there a way to achieve this?


The only animation reference found in the BBUI documentation is only the page load animation. Maybe I missed something.

Re: Animating / Sliding Tab

[ Edited ]

OK, I managed to solve this myself. Just in case somebody else wondering how to do it.


I used HTML5 and CSS3 animation. (no JQuery, no other JS framework)


The technique I use:

1. Define the animation in a CSS class

2. Append the animation class (from no.1) using javascript (onclick event for example)


Simple as that. I guess searching both step on Google to get the exact code wouldn't be too hard.


It worked perfectly (and smooth too) in Ripple, but I don't know how it perform on actual device since I don't have one. Not sure about the BB10 emulator ... haven't tried it either ...
