    'Search this forum' dropdown thingie

    Hey,

    I'm looking to do something similiar as the little box that appears on this forum when you click 'Search this forum'. I was wondering if anyone can tell me if this sort of feature has a name, how to do it, or point me to page with more info about it.

    I thought it might just be a hidden layer that became visible, but that doesn't explain the little fade it does.

    It uses setTimeout() or setInterval() to make it appear to grow like that.

    I doubt there are any tutorials on how to do it -- you'll just have to figure out how to do it yourself.

    Thanks for the heads up, I wasn't familiar with setTimeout() and setInterval().
    I'll work on it using those functions
    Thanks again!
