CVI
reflex.js 1.5 allows you to add a Cover Flow effect (including reflection) to images on your webpages. *Cover Flow is a trademark of Apple Inc.

It works in all the major browsers - Mozilla Firefox 1.5+, Opera 9+, Safari and IE6+. On older browsers, it'll degrade and your visitors won't notice a thing.

Demonstration

Shows some of the things reflex.js does.

First 3 images with class "reflex" only, last 3 with "idistance?? iheight?? iopacity?? iborder? icolor??????" ...


"reflex iopacity50"

"reflex iopacity75"

"reflex iopacity25"

Images used are copyrighted and are used for demonstration only.

Setting Up

Download reflex.js and include it into your webpage.

<script type="text/javascript" src="reflex.js"></script>

Using It

To get the effect just add a class="reflex" to the image (minimum dimension: 32x32).
The needed vertical space of the canvas element will grow by the height of the reflection, plus the height of the distance.

Classes

Scripting lib

If you want flexibility, use "cvi_reflex_lib.js" instead of "reflex.js". You can make your images respond to user actions (e.g. changing one or more options when the image is hovered over).

Set defaults using Javascript
cvi_reflex.defaultTilt = 'none'; //STR 'n|l|r'-'none|left|right'
cvi_reflex.defaultHeight = 33; //INT 10-100 (%)
cvi_reflex.defaultDistance = 0; //INT 0-100 (px)
cvi_reflex.defaultTransparency = 50; //INT 1-100 (%)
cvi_reflex.defaultBorder = 0; //INT 0-20 (px)
cvi_reflex.defaultColor = '#ffffff'; //STR '#000000'-'#ffffff'
cvi_reflex.defaultBoxmode = false; //BOOLEAN
If cvi_filter_lib.js is loaded also...
cvi_reflex.defaultFilter = null; //OBJ [{f='grayscale'},{f='emboss', s:1}...]

Add images using Javascript
cvi_reflex.add(image, options);
image should be an image element: document.getElementById("myimg")
options can contain one or more values: {tilt: value, height: value, distance: value, transparency: value, border: value, color: value, boxmode: value, filter: value}
Examples:
cvi_reflex.add(document.getElementById("myimg"), { height: 25, distance: 10 });
<img onLoad="cvi_reflex.add(this, { height: 25, distance: 10 });" ...>

Modify images using Javascript
cvi_reflex.modify(image, options);
If the image has already an effect but a option value has changed, the effect will be changed accordingly.
Example:
cvi_reflex.modify(document.getElementById("myimg"), { tilt: "left" });

Remove effect from an image using Javascript
cvi_reflex.remove(image);

Support libs

If you are using the more flexible "cvi_reflex_lib.js" instead of "reflex.js", you'll get access to additional features by the following support libraries (part of distribution):

Why use Javascript Reflex Image?

In older browsers, the script degrades and your visitors won't notice a thing.
