mindbrain

WePanicForYou
Make a script that does random letters and numbers for each TD background colour.
mindbrain
HMmMMMmmMmm
i'm just gonna read some of these tutorials first
cypha
opinions on overlapping tabs?
mindbrain
seriously is that the way to do it ?
Panicforme
WePanicForYou
mindbrain: What, exactly, are you trying to do?
Cork
mindbrain: you have two options
you can be backwards compatible and add class odd/even to the tr
mindbrain
look just a differnt background color for every other row hello
ok
dronix
mindbrain: http://css-tricks.com/video-screencasts/61-basic-table-styling/ and http://css-tricks.com/video-screencasts/66-table-styling-2-fixed-header-and-highlighting/
Cork
mindbrain: or you can use :nth-child, but its less supported
http://hacks.mozilla.org/2009/06/css3-nth/
mindbrain
cool thanks a lot
rockband
making a script isnt hard either..[my prefered choice]
Cork
script, you mean doing it with js?
rockband
you can add a bunch of selected colors in a array and randomly select one.
Cork
or a server script?
rockband
any one would do
Cork
doing it with js sucks though
cypha
opinions on overlapping tabs?
rockband
php can do it easily
Cork
ya
but i prefer to add classes, instead of style values
it gets alot cleaner
rockband
sure but thats kind manual
Cork
uh... why is class="<?php echo odd ? 'odd' : 'even'; ?>" more manual then writing color values?
Jack-in-Box
hi all, I'm new to web design, I want to create a very FAST menu, the is very optimized and very compatible... ppl are all telling me diff technologies... which is the fastest? Pure CSS, CSS+JS, AJAX, DHTML
Cork
if you have it in the css, its easier to adjust the color, and you might want to change more then just the bg color
Jack-in-Box: css, menus is about as fast as you can get
its less functional then js menus though
if you move out of the menu (if you use flyout), it will collaps and so on
Jack-in-Box
mmmmmmmm
WePanicForYou
Jack-in-Box: The most common CSS menu http://www.alistapart.com/articles/taminglists/
Plain, simple, 2 styles. Bob's your uncle.
Jack-in-Box
I'm trying to emulate the menu on www.jdate.com, but i'm not sure what they are using...the code on the page says something about superfish?
Cork
Jack-in-Box: if you want the best of both worlds, you can start with a css menu, then extend it with js to make it prittier
Jack-in-Box
is there an easy utility to use to make a css menu? i tried the trial of Pure CSS, but doesn't have the look i want...
rockband
jack, are you talking about the slider??
Jack-in-Box
i want a horizontal submenu, but not many templates with that style...
WePanicForYou
Jack-in-Box: We can't log in. Can't see what you see.
Jack-in-Box
darn... forgot there is a logon on the site
WePanicForYou
(Action) loves how everyone is married just last year. Yeah, where's the 'We met in 1997' folks?
All divorced?
rockband
lol
nice...dating site
too bad they will not allow me in there
Jack-in-Box
anyway i can send u guys a screen shot or something to the channel?
WePanicForYou
Fucking easy to have the happy new couples talking. How about the long-term folks?
Jack-in-Box: We'd need to see the site code as well.
I'm off to shave a schmuck.
dronix
nn
Jack-in-Box
is superfish js or css?
Cork
isn't that a jquery plugin?
rockband
y
Jack-in-Box
yes
thats what the code says
something about jquery - whatever that is
Cork
Jack-in-Box: jquery is a javascript framework
Jack-in-Box
ahhh
when i google it, it says if there is a lack of js, it will still run with just css alone
why do they call it a plugin?
Cork
Jack-in-Box: it builds ontop of the jquery framework, and thats called a jquery plugin
Jack-in-Box
ahhh
Cork

cypha
does anyone have an opinion on overlapping tabs?
is it bad practice?
Cork
"overlapping"?
b0xa
overlappinng?
cypha
ya
b0xa
meaning... normal tabs?
cypha
where the slanted edges overlap
Cork
you mean a tab menu?
why would it be bad?
Cork
as long as you fiddle with the z-index to make it work correctly, i don't see the problem
cypha
www.babasociety.com
Cork
is that suppose to be with and without overlap?
or what is the last link?
cypha
that's my website
without overlap
Cork
they both work for me, you don't have that many tabs, so...
cypha
it's so spread out
it'll be 3 or 4 tabs
Cork
then i guess you want to at least make the radius smaller on the tab
and move them closer
overlap or not, is up to you
cypha
how can I move them closer?
actually, Cork
there's a problem with the tab
zoom in
while the tab is active
the line underneath shows up
Cork
"shows up"?
cypha
appears :)
Cork
so don't add it if you wan't want it
LearnerJq
i am facing a disappearing content issue in the HATED IE6....www.peshawarads.com is the link to my website...the first .leftbox div containing latest ads in car is not showing up in IET
IE^*
cypha
i don't want the line underneath an active tab to appear
peshawar eh?
my dad is from there
LearnerJq
CYPHA:ahan and u from?
cypha
Cork, furthermore, the tab looks broken in IE
without zooming in
LearnerJq, India
well, USA
but I was born in india back in the day
LearnerJq
ahan:then inform your dad that your city of birth has a website now..lol...are u pathan?
Cork
LearnerJq: welcome to the love of DD_belatedPNG_0.0.8a-min.js
cypha
nope
Sikh
Cork
LearnerJq: its a known problem with that hack
LearnerJq
hmm
cypha
LearnerJq, when you click on the link and it rolls down, it doesnt roll back up when you click again
LearnerJq, what CMS?
Jack-in-Box
aside from coding my hand what is the easiest tool to use to make menus
?
WePanicForYou
I don't know, I code by hand.
Jack-in-Box
oy
WePanicForYou
Spend more time learning how to work a 'tool' than you would hand coding 100 menus.
Jack-in-Box
haha, ur prob right...
i spent all day looking for tools
found zippo
EtotheK
ho i can change color text in input?
*how
Cork
EtotheK: input { color: red; }
you might want to use input[type="text"] { color: red; } though
or posibly even input[type="text"], input[type="password"] { color: red; }
LearnerJq
cypha :sorry i was away
its not cms
custom built
Cork:and my issue isnt related to belated png
hermes1908
can someone help me?
I wrote a small bookmark page in html and css and for some reason when i set the margin it only appears to the right not the bottom
code is here http://theintelligi.devio.us/bookmarks.html
more specifically css file is here http://theintelligi.devio.us/bookmarks_stylesheet.css
__jSepia
hermes1908: I can't access any of those URLs, could you please check?
hermes1908
as you can see even though the margin-bottom property is set it seems to have no effect
hmm
let me check
they work fine for me and they are hosted on a remote server
WePanicForYou
hermes1908: Where's your doctype?
hermes1908
WePanicForYou: good point forgot that, but it shouldnt make a difference in firefox, should it?
let me try adding it one sec
WePanicForYou
hermes1908: You also can't have the same ID in the same page.
id="section" 2 times in same page is invalid.
__jSepia
and I believe you can't set vertical margins for inline elements
EtotheK
Cork: tenks!!!
Cork: Thanks
Cork
np
hermes1908
__jSepia: ahh, didnt know that
WePanicForYou: hmm really i didnt know that
