About last week I got a question from a friend in ExtJS subject, like this pst title said he asking how to load a grid from another grid, which mean the first grid loaded when the page load, and the second grid loads when a row in the first grid clicked.

A sliding door effect can be used what the site offer. About a week ago I visited a site called auroraos, on the first page I see a nice sliding image gallery on the front page, it used JQuery to creating the effect, it like a vertical accordion, sliding door effect or whatever you called it.
All the images must have the same size, in both width and height, the hovered images will shows entirely, and the others will mostly hidden.
