I looked up the tutorial "Making a Fancy lifebar". It looks quite well what I wanted.
But not exactly.
It works so that you resize the graphic to fit the width of current "meter position". Common to do so.
But if let's say, I want to use a graphic as a whole, let's say 256 pixels height when 100%, but starting at 0%, which cropping the graphic to nothing, 1 procent = crop to 1x256 pixels... Cropping instead for resizing the graphic, if you understand what I mean?
I also thought of splitting the graphic into 1 pixel thickness slices but maybe it is too much work and there are simpler way?
Just thinking out loud here.... You are welcome to give me your ideas. :) <img src="smileys/smiley9.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
