Window Fade In and Out

Hi, I’m trying to make a window fade in when


is used and fade out when the window is closed.

I did actually ask this question on Stack Overflow - , I got an answer, but I don’t know much Obj-C and the code didn’t really work, the way I was using it or something.

Could anyone help me to do this in ASOC ? (The code at SO might help)

Show us the code you’ve tried.

It’s over on Stack Overflow, link in my first post…

- (void)fadeInAndMakeKeyAndOrderFront:(BOOL)orderFront {
    [self setAlphaValue:0.0];
    if (orderFront) {
        [self makeKeyAndOrderFront:nil];
    [[self animator] setAlphaValue:1.0];

- (void)fadeOutAndOrderOut:(BOOL)orderOut {
    if (orderOut) {
        NSTimeInterval delay = [[NSAnimationContext currentContext] duration] + 0.1;
        [self performSelector:@selector(orderOut:) withObject:nil afterDelay:delay];
    [[self animator] setAlphaValue:0.0];

I just put this in an Obj-C class and made it the window’s delegate.

Just do it in ASObjC. When you want to close a window, do something like:

	set theDelay to current application's NSAnimationContext's currentContext()'s duration()
	tell theWindow
		tell animator() to setAlphaValue_(0)
		performSelector_withObject_afterDelay_("orderOut:", missing value, theDelay + 0.1)
	end tell

That starts the animation, and closes the window just after it finishes. When you want to open a window, use something like this:

	tell theWindow
               -- open it in here
		tell animator() to setAlphaValue_(1)
	end tell

Oh right, ok, thanks!

I’ve tried fade in and fade out both work! :smiley: Thanks again!
