Hi Deon,

I you looking to do this on a webpage/ website or on an ios/andriod app ??

Also are you familiar with JQuery ?

I think I know what knid of menu you you are talking about its similar to that of Twitter where when you scroll down the nav becomes fixed to the top of the page and the content scrolls underneath is this correct?


I'm not familiar with JQuery... The header is invisible until you scroll down the page. As you start to scroll the header fades in from 0%-100% opacity and then stays there. When scrolling back to the top it fades out again in the same fashion.

No Problem,

This would require some JavaScript or jQuery to achieve in the best possible way having it fade in a good manor.

Here are the treehouse courses on JavaScript and jQuery

Standard HTML and CSS wont be best to this and the above have fields designed to manipulate front end on user interaction like scrolling.

Hope this helps !
