Create a Modal Dialog Using CSS and Javascript. Back in my early programming days, before I switched over to web development, I spent most of my time writing software for Windows.

Create a Modal Dialog Using CSS and Javascript

I look back on that time with fond memories. 8-bit icons, OLE2, and no silly Start menus. With the recent Web 2.0 boom, many web developers have returned to their roots and begun building sites that resemble desktop applications. AJAX (the second coming of javascript) lets designers borrow elements from the desktop paradigm and use them on their websites. One element that I find myself using quite a bit are modal dialogs. In a desktop application, a modal dialog is a box or message that forces you to dismiss it before you can use any other part of the program.

It is also a powerful platform for building APIs that expose services and data. HTTP is simple, flexible, and ubiquitous. Almost any platform that you can think of has an HTTP library, so HTTP services can reach a broad range of clients, including browsers, mobile devices, and traditional desktop applications.

10+ No-Signup Collaboration Tools You Can Use in 10 Seconds

Do you associate it with the frustrating clunkiness of trying to synchronize everyone’s work? Many collaboration tools require an account to even get started before you benefit from their collaboration features. That in itself negates the act of swift collaborating, with people coming from all ends of the spectrum to combine ideas, talent and work. Many believe that collaboration should be as “painless” as possible. We dug through the web with these simple guidelines in mind.

Color Filters Can Turn Your Gray Skies Blue

I've always enjoyed the "duotone" effect in photos. In Photoshop, you can create them by converting an image into grayscale mode, then into duotone. So the lights are "mapped" to one color, and the darks another. Not only does it look cool, but images with less colors are smaller in file size and thus good for performance. When I saw Amelia playing around with this programatically through SVG on CodePen, I asked if she'd be up for teaching us through a guest post. Once upon a time, if you wanted artistic images in your web design, you created them in Photoshop. Graphical effects—first in SVG, now in CSS—are changing that.

Advertisement A lot of funny 404 pages have been shared recently: carefully crafted memes, funny GIFs, even the odd interactive game. But if the 404 doesn’t help your visitors, then what’s the point? A visitor could find themselves on a 404 page for one of many reasons: a mistyped address, a bad link from somewhere else, a deleted page or content that has moved elsewhere.

While you can prevent errors from moved pages with redirects, you can’t control people’s mistakes. Being Helpful People who land on your website are looking for its content, usually via a link. This problem isn’t new, and we’ve seen a lot of ideas on how to handle it. Suggesting The Right Page One way to suggest the right page is to search for it yourself and present the result. Google’s Custom Search API is a tool for searching within an individual website.
