I have gone through google, jquery, and everything I know trying to find a script for a right to left flyout panel that is triggered on hover. I have found plenty of drop down panels but I don't know how to modify them to go right to tleft and to do it on hover.

I am creating a help section that sits on the right side of a lightbox popup. When they hover over a bar on the right side of the box it will flyin a panel containing help options.

I am already using jQuery so to stick with that would be nice.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!!!

Perfect! Thanks! I had to make one small adjustment. The one pixel border wasn't accounted for in the width of the panel which caused the float:left on its two child divs to stack instead of sitting side by side. So increasing that to 201px fixed it.

Thanks again! Genius!
