How to smoothly show a div by doing a scroll over page content

Dear Expert:

I have a web which shows information about a city. I would like to add a link at the top for showing/hiding a map of the city. When pressing the "show" link I would like the map to be shown progressively, i.e. by scrolling the bellow content and adding the map as if there was a powerpoint transition.

I think I have seen somewhere on a web. Is this possible ? Do you have an example for doing this ?

Thank you.

You will probably want to look into jQuery (jquery.com) as it can show/hide elements by using animations (like the image 'pulling down'. See: http://api.jquery.com/animate/

You may find that you get more hits for this in Javascript rather than JScript.

Thank you for your help. I'm using Joomla for my site. Do you know if Jquery can be used on Joomla ? (as I think Joomla uses mootools).

Thank you.

I've never used Joomla, so I can't say for sure; However, http://mootools.net/demos/?demo=Fx.Slide appears to be what you want. It hides and shows content, moving the content below it up/down.
