Nostalgia: Dragging the Windows XP error dialog

Remember the "good old days" when you were still using Windows XP? If so, I'm pretty sure you remember the loads of error dialogs that would pop up at a totally random time. Although these dialogs always show up at a bad time, you could do something pretty neat with them. Drag the window around and it would duplicate itself over and over!

Sadly, I haven't seen this effect alive in Windows 7, so to keep those memories alive for XP, I re-created the effect using HTML/CSS with jQuery and jQuery UI.

Dragging the Windows XP error dialog

Simply check out the demo to see if you can remember how it would look like. Be creative and fill up the screen with some beautiful error dialogs.

I hope you understand that I'm pretty sarcastic; I don't like these kind of error messages that would make your PC crash. Yet, I wanted to give it a try to bring this effect to your browser. Now let's see on how you can create this fantastic effect yourself!

New CSS3 properties added to Firefox 3.6

A couple of days ago, Mozilla released their newest version of their ever popular browser: Firefox. It was in beta before, but now version 3.6 can be officially downloaded. This version of the browser brings us a couple of improvements on several aspects, like using Personas (themes), improved (JavaScript) performance and an extended version of the CSS engine compared to the 3.5 release. Today, we're going to look at a couple of the new CSS3 properties that are added to Firefox 3.6.

Please note that this article only aims at Firefox 3.6, using the -moz CSS prefix. Therefore, not all techniques will be visible when using any other browser (or older versions of Firefox). So let's see what the latest version of this browser has added to his CSS arsenal.

CSS3 animations and their jQuery equivalents

As you might know already, I'm not a big fan of animations that are added in CSS3. Yet, several people on Twitter told me why they really like the feature. At that point, I wanted to play around with it too.

At the same time, I wanted to see if those animations with CSS3 could be created with jQuery too (especially for those browser that don't support CSS3 animations yet). So today, I present you Five examples of CSS3 animations and their jQuery equivalents.

CSS3 animations and their jQuery equivalents

This tutorial/these examples will show the use of the same HTML, with different classes for CSS3 and jQuery. You can compare both the codes and see which one you like more. Don't forget to check the demo/download the source code to view how everything is working under the hood.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Sadly, CSS3 and HTML5 aren't the standards (yet) these days (when will it ever be?). Since this demo is using CSS3 animations, not all (modern) browsers will be able to show off the full effects. Because of this, it only works on Apples Safari and Google Chrome as they are the only browsers supporting the CSS3 animations via the -webkit- prefix. So, for now, this is just for fun and learning more about CSS3 and jQuery. The jQuery effects will work on other browsers though.

With that said, check out how you can re-create these and learn some more about CSS3 animations and jQuery.

Sweet tabbed navigation using CSS3

Although I don't understand why animations have been added in CSS3, this upcoming standard does have a couple of very neat features added to the CSS we're using today. I wanted to take a couple of these new things, and create a Sweet tabbed navigation using CSS3.

This tutorial takes on the following CSS(3) properties:

  • rgba
  • opacity
  • text-shadow
  • pseudo selectors
  • rounded corners
  • gradients
  • box-shadow

As you could expect, this demo only works in browsers that support the new CSS3 features. This code fully works in Safari / Firefox 3.6, but hasn't been tested in other browsers. Now let's see how you can create this kind of sweet menu yourself!

jQuery DJ Hero - CSS3 and jQuery fun

Remember jTypingHero? This was a fun little game to test your typing skills based on the ever popular Guitar Hero. Lately, I came across some news about a new "Hero" game: DJ Hero. Since I really love Proof of Concepts/experimenting, I wanted to bring the vinyl to the browser. That's why I present to you: jQuery DJ Hero.

By combining CSS3 and jQuery, I created two records that you can start spinning (faster and slower) and even scratching is enabled. In a future version, this could be used together with some real sound (this version has no sound).

To achieve the desired effect, I made use of jQuery, Animate CSS Rotation and Scale jQuery Patch and the jQuery Easing library. The picture of the vinyl has been taken from stock.xchng.

Since we're using CSS3's transform property (to rotate the vinyls), this example only works in browsers that support CSS3 (Currently, the latest versions of Safari, Firefox and Chrome support this). I've added a video for those people that don't use those browsers and still want to see how the effect looks like. Make sure to check out the demo and let's see how you can create that yourself.

Browser size aware content scaling

Just recently, I noticed something pretty cool at Google Images: When you resize your browser, search results are hidden/shown, depending if it makes a full row. It does really have a big advantage: you'll never have any "empty spots" on your website. The grid is always fully filled and results that don't fit in the grid, are simply hidden.

I wanted to recreate this technique using jQuery. Just like Google Images, it check how many images fit in each row and hides the one that fall off (depending on the browser size).

Browser size aware content scaling

The difference between my HTML and the one Google, is that Google uses a table to display the image. My version uses floating images (but essentially, they work the same). Just make sure to check out the demo.

Now let's take a deeper look at the problem, the solution and how you create your own browser size aware content scaling.
