Resizable, Animated Menu Item
I'd like to implement resizable and animated menu items.
so, when a menu item gains focus, it's size changes with hopefully a certain transition effect.
it was quite easy to implement a rollover button as the only thing I had to do was just using HIcon class's HIcon(java.awt.Image imageNormal, java.awt.Image imageFocus, int x, int y, int width, int height) constructor.
I think there must be some classes that supports transition effects.
to summarize, let's say there's a "button A" at x=10, y=10, w=100, h=100
and when the button gains a focus, the buttons attributes changes to
x=50, y=10, w=300, h=300. with a transition effect.
will there be any way to implement this?
