This post is a continuation of iteration 2. From the end user point of view Slide effects presented here are almost identical to these from previous post. The only difference is that target components shadow or other filter drawn beside components bounds (0,0 to width, height rectangle) are not cropped during slide animation.
A number of changes was required to implement this functionality:

This post is a continuation of Implementing SlideDown effect – iteration 1. It is quite short since extraction of Slide base class and implementation of SlideDown, SlideUp, SlideLeft and SlideRight classes was really straightforward. Most of the code from iteration 1 was used as base classes (Slide and SlideInstance). Concrete effect classes simply declares instanceClass in constructor while concrete effect instance classes overrides onTweenUpdate() method to tween animation in a specific direction.

This tutorial describes how to create reusable effect which can be applied both by calling play() function and by binding it to showEffect/hideEffect MXML attribute.
If you simply want to use slide effect in your application you don’t have to read whole this tutorial. Simply download sources, open included examples and you will surely understand how to use it.
I have divided this tutorial into three parts (posts):
