cool window switcher

hi,

have you ever seen in movies where some hacker has this cool window switching thingy - something like windows vista, where it highlights and zooms the active window, while diming and unzooming the unselected windows:
note: by window i mean a thumb with something in it.

but going back to our hacker and his cool window switcher, i want to make something that would rotate windows. you would have alot of windows stacked one after another in a circle, so when you would press the left key/button, it would bring the next window on the right in front, zoom it and make it bright, while the last active window would go to the left, get smaller and dimed and there would be more windows stacked behind it in a circular motion. I hope you get the picture, if not i can draw a sketch. anyhow, how can that be done ?

thank you

If you look at my portfolio website, this is similar what I have done there.

Let me know if this is exactly what you are looking for:

great, thats exactly what i've been looking for - with a few minor corrections

i need it to fix the 'window' that is in the front and center, every time it cycles through and not spin uncontrolably.

and i need it to only spin ( switch the front, selected window ) when mouse goes over one of the other windows ( bring the window the cursor is over to the front.

thank you
