Visual Effects with Page Transition in Microsoft Expression Web 2

A page transition is a visual effect with which a page opens or closes. For example, fading, wiping out. You can add a page transition to multiple pages in a website.

Adding a page transition

Go to Format menu > Page Transition to launch the Page Transition dialog box (shown below).



Choose following options in the Page Transitions dialog box:

Event: Select the event for which the page transition should occur. You have four events to choose from;

1.       Page Enter – when a page opens in a browser.

2.       Page Exit – when a page loses its focus.

3.       Site Enter – when a web site is opened for the first time.

4.       Site Exit – when the web site loses its focus.

Duration (seconds):  Enter the duration in seconds, for which the page transition effect should last.

Transition effect: Choose the type of transition effect you want to apply.

NOTE: You can add transitions to more than one event, but be careful as to not create too many flashy effects as it may lead nuisance to the viewer and may not visit your web site again.
