How to make shaders?

Okay, this is going to be a little hard to explain. But there are several questions I need to ask. This paragraph will explain and then I will list the questions. First of when I refer to shaders I am talking about shaders in the fasion that they fade in or out. This image shows you buttons with the shaders I am speaking of http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i79/Rotciv206/vlcsnap-969054.png

  1. How do I make/use shaders?
  2. How do I use shaders on buttons?
  3. How do I expand and make the shader dynamic?

Thanks,

If you click on an object in your scene, under the material component you can select from a bunch of premade shaders in the drop down. To have dynamic effects, you’ll have to access the material in a script and edit its properties.
