Hi Aaron,

thanks for your reply and especially the code snippet!
It's kinda cool and it should help me a lot to pick it apart. as you 
guessed, ultimately I am after pages filled with various widgets to 
slide in and out of view, so not sure if this solution will work. 
Nonetheless it's a great example for me to look at and learn a bit more.

Thanks everyone!!
