Modifying Innerfade to display two tweets?

  • # February 8, 2010 at 10:58 am

    I’m trying to figure out if it’s possible to change how innerfade displays tweets. At the moment I have it fading them in sequence but I’d like for it to display and fade two tweets at a time rather than just the one. Is this possible?!

    the script:

    Code:
    jQuery(‘#twitter_update_list’).innerfade({
    animationtype: ‘fade’,
    speed: ‘normal’,
    timeout: 6000,
    type: ‘sequence’,
    containerheight: ‘auto’
    });
    Code:


    and the innerfade.js:

    Code:
    (function($) {

    $.fn.innerfade = function(options) {
    return this.each(function() {
    $.innerfade(this, options);
    });
    };

    $.innerfade = function(container, options) {
    var settings = {
    ‘animationtype’: ‘fade’,
    ‘speed’: ‘normal’,
    ‘type’: ‘sequence’,
    ‘timeout’: 2000,
    ‘containerheight’: ‘auto’,
    ‘runningclass’: ‘innerfade’,
    ‘children’: null
    };
    if (options)
    $.extend(settings, options);
    if (settings.children === null)
    var elements = $(container).children();
    else
    var elements = $(container).children(settings.children);
    if (elements.length > 1) {
    $(container).css(‘position’, ‘relative’).css(‘height’, settings.containerheight).addClass(settings.runningclass);

    for (var i = 0; i < elements.length; i++) {
    $(elements[i]).css('z-index', String(elements.length-i)).css('position', 'absolute').hide();
    };
    if (settings.type == "sequence") {
    setTimeout(function() {
    $.innerfade.next(elements, settings, 1, 0);
    }, settings.timeout);
    $(elements[0]).show();
    } else if (settings.type == "random") {
    var last = Math.floor ( Math.random () * ( elements.length ) );
    setTimeout(function() {
    do {
    current = Math.floor ( Math.random ( ) * ( elements.length ) );
    } while (last == current );
    $.innerfade.next(elements, settings, current, last);
    }, settings.timeout);
    $(elements[last]).show();
    } else if ( settings.type == 'random_start' ) {
    settings.type = 'sequence';
    var current = Math.floor ( Math.random () * ( elements.length ) );
    setTimeout(function(){
    $.innerfade.next(elements, settings, (current + 1) % elements.length, current);
    }, settings.timeout);
    $(elements[current]).show();
    } else {
    alert('Innerfade-Type must either be 'sequence', 'random' or 'random_start'');
    }
    }
    };

    $.innerfade.next = function(elements, settings, current, last) {
    if (settings.animationtype == 'slide') {
    $(elements[last]).slideUp(settings.speed);
    $(elements[current]).slideDown(settings.speed);
    } else if (settings.animationtype == 'fade') {
    $(elements[last]).fadeOut(settings.speed);
    $(elements[current]).fadeIn(settings.speed, function() {
    removeFilter($(this)[0]);
    });
    } else
    alert('Innerfade-animationtype must either be 'slide' or 'fade'');
    if (settings.type == "sequence") {
    if ((current + 1) < elements.length) {
    current = current + 1;
    last = current - 1;
    } else {
    current = 0;
    last = elements.length - 1;
    }
    } else if (settings.type == "random") {
    last = current;
    while (current == last)
    current = Math.floor(Math.random() * elements.length);
    } else
    alert('Innerfade-Type must either be 'sequence', 'random' or 'random_start'');
    setTimeout((function() {
    $.innerfade.next(elements, settings, current, last);
    }), settings.timeout);
    };

    })(jQuery);

    // **** remove Opacity-Filter in ie ****
    function removeFilter(element) {
    if(element.style.removeAttribute){
    element.style.removeAttribute('filter');
    }

    }
