Login and Registration Form with HTML5 and CSS3 A tutorial on how to create a switching login and registration form with HTML5 and CSS3. View demo Download source In this tutorial we are going to create two HTML5 forms that will switch between login and registration using the CSS3 pseudo class :target. We will style it using CSS3 and an icon font. The idea behind this demo is to show the user the login form and provide a link to “switch” to the registration form. Note that this is for demo purpose only, it will only work in browser supporting the :target pseudo class, and you should not use this code on a live website without providing solid fallback. JavaScript Sprite Animation Using jQuery Last week I reported on my tests using percentage to position background-images. Today’s post is a walk thru of where I put this research to work — published earlier in the week in the July 2007 Design View. One of the nicest things about going to a real bricks ‘n’ mortar bookstore is the effortless pleasure of thumbing mindlessly through any book that takes your fancy — not that you actually read anything in particular, but it’s just a great way to get a general sense of its layout, style, and quality. While it’s difficult to convey information about the paper and binding quality via a screen (compared to fingertips), our marketing manager Shayne and I started wondering whether it might be possible to reproduce some of that effortless “page flicking” feel, using a touch of JavaScript. The result of our first take on the idea is here — promoting Kevin and Cam’s new JavaScript primer, fittingly enough, although not actually part of the book’s content. Part I: The Starting Point

Animated Form Switching with jQuery In this tutorial we will create a simple animated form switch with three very common forms.

The idea is not to leave the page when the user goes to another form but instead make the new form appear within the same container, expanding or contracting to the dimensions of the new form. We will ensure that the form switch works as well when JavaScript is disabled in which case we will simply jump to the other’s form page.

The Page Turn Effect in Flash MX by Sham Bhangal, author of Flash Hacks 09/03/2004 In Hack #25 of Flash Hacks, I talk in general terms about how symmetry can aid the thought and design processes when you are developing scripted effects, because symmetry is a very common feature in both natural and man-made effects. I go on to show how to deconstruct one of the most recent "How is that done?" effects, the page turn, by looking for symmetry in the effect. What I don't cover is how to develop code that can be used to create the page turn effect. This article provides that part of the equation.
