Transition Blend

Had used the following on a website

<META http-equiv=“Page-Enter” content=“blendTrans(duration)=20.0)”>

It no longer works. Is there a reason? Does it have to do with upgrade in browser (IE8)?

It’s possible. IE8 was meant to support IE-only stuff, but Microsoft wanted things like the IE-only stuff in CSS to always be prefixed with -ms… so very likely they made changes to this meta tag. I would imagine IE8 does still support it somehow, but it may need a different tag.

When I make that change the “next” page goes into transition? Used to be the index page would open that way, which is what I preferred.

Try it without that middle parenthesis:

Instead of
<META http-equiv=“Page-Enter” content=“blendTrans(duration)=20.0)”>

try this:

<META http-equiv=“Page-Enter” content=“blendTrans(duration=20.0)”>

The transition worked fine until about six months ago…with IE7. With IE8 it does not.

That’s right - MS proprietary for use on intranets only.

Well you can use it elsewhere but then your visitors using IE have a completely different experience to what everyone else sees.

Is blendTrans still not supported by non-IE browsers? As I remember, it’s a non-standard, MS-proprietary function.
