Notification messages are an important part of the user experience and you can’t afford to omit them. A notification alert message should appear every time the user perform important tasks.
In this article, you’ll learn how to create some alert messages with CSS3 and Jquery.
The CSS3 fonts module has a number of interesting CSS3 properties and features. Browser support for many of these is pretty limited right now, but I thought I’d summarize some of these features here.
CSS3 introduces a few new units. (Oh wait, I’ve said that before.) So, you’ve heard about px, pt, em, and the fancy new rem. Let’s look at a couple more: vw and vh.
With vw/vh, we can size elements to be relative to the size of the viewport. The vw/vh units are interesting in that 1 unit reflects 1/100th the width of the viewport. To make an element the full width of the viewport, for example, you’d set it to width:100vw.
A of a nice coverflow effect only with CSS3 properties. The animations are done via the ‘transition’ instruction, the 3D effect via some custom webkit transformations or using skew (for firefox compatibility). Everything is triggered via the :target pseudo-class.
This article looks in detail at radial gradients. If you’ve got a good sense of how linear gradients work, radial gradients should present no great difficulty. And, I’ll again introduce an updated tool for creating radial gradients, which supports the current syntax, and works across all modern browsers which support radial gradients (more on which they are shortly).
Although CSS3 @font-face is supported by most major browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari), but not all. When it doesn’t, your custom fonts might break the layout or come out with undesired results. In this article, I will explain the common issues with using custom fonts, picking the matching fallback web safe fonts, and how to create a perfect fallback font style with Modernizr.
Since the last few months it feels like web standards are moving at pace that we would really like them to move. Every browser is pushing the envelope ahead including our very own IE9. For the first time it feels like web is getting the extra freedom of expression that it deserves and we want to contribute to that.
ASP.NET developers have been asking for HTML5 & CSS3 support all the time and today we are super excited to announce the public availability of Visual Studio Web Standards Update which brings a ton of HTML5 & CSS3 support to Visual Studio 2010 SP1. VS Web Standards Update is a free extension available for anyone who is using Visual Studio 2010 SP1 and it provides HTML5 & CSS3 support based on current W3C specifications.
If you’ve yet to learn how to work with CSS3 media queries, I hope it’s near the top of your to-do list, because 2011 is definitely the year of the mobile device. Whether you need to build a separate mobile site, or plan to make one size fit all, you’ll still need to be up to date with responsive web design techniques.
After more than a year of work, I’m absolutely proud and delighted to introduce my first book: The Book of CSS3. As well as the prosaic title, the subtitle — A Developer’s Guide to the Future of Web Design — should give you some idea of what to expect from it: it’s a book written by a developer, for developers; in other words, by me, for you.
The book doesn’t aim to teach CSS from scratch; it presumes that you’re a working developer with a good knowledge of web technologies, especially CSS, and you want to take your knowledge to the next level. It aims to translate the sometimes complex specification into something that’s easier to understand, and has plenty of code examples and illustrations to aid in achieving that aim.
I’ve never been a big fan of CSS generators, but this one is just way too cool! LayerStyles, a web app created by Felix Niklas, allows you to generate CSS using an interface that looks almost exactly like the layer styles dialog box in Photoshop…
