CSS3 Media Queries

CSS3 Media Queries
CSS2 allows you to specify stylesheet for specific media type such as screen or print. Now CSS3 makes it even more efficient by adding media queries. You can add expressions to media type to check for certain conditions and apply different stylesheets. For example, you can have one stylesheet for large displays and a different stylesheet specifically for mobile devices.

Multiple Media Queries You can combine multiple media queries. Device Width The following code will apply if the max-device-width is 480px (eg. iPhone display).

Pure CSS Image Hover | Kyle Schaeffer - Web Design and SharePoint Branding Many site designs will feature varying types of image “hover” states, where an image or background image changes when you move your mouse cursor into that area of the page. Traditionally, this change in image is handled via JavaScript. It’s fairly easy to write a small script that swaps out images on mouseover, but there are a number of disadvantages to this approach that have pushed many web developers toward using a CSS-only method of achieving this exact same effect. This tutorial describes exactly how to implement a pure CSS image hover effect. The Image The biggest difference between a traditional JavaScript image hover and a pure CSS image hover is the image, itself. Let’s look at an image that could be used as a CSS hover image. Simplistic Markup As you can see, both static and hover images are contained within the same file. <a class="myButtonLink" href="#LinkURL">Leaf</a> The CSS As you can see, the HTML is extremely simple.

Media Queries Abstract HTML4 and CSS2 currently support media-dependent style sheets tailored for different media types. For example, a document may use sans-serif fonts when displayed on a screen and serif fonts when printed. ‘screen’ and ‘print’ are two media types that have been defined. A media query consists of a media type and zero or more expressions that check for the conditions of particular media features.

media queries for common device breakpoints | Responsive Web Design The @media query is 1/3 of the recipe for responsive design. It is the key ingredient that, in it’s simplest form, allows specified CSS to be applied depending on the device and whether it matches the media query criteria. Before you start copying and pasting below, read why you don’t need device specific viewports. CSS3 Media Queries Разрешение экрана в наши дни колеблется от 320px (iPhone) до 2560px (большие мониторы) или даже выше. Пользователи больше не просматривают сайты только на настольных компьютерах. Теперь пользователи используют мобильные телефоны, небольшие ноутбуки, планшетные устройства, такие как iPad или Playbook для доступа в интернет. Поэтому, традиционный дизайн с фиксированной шириной больше не работает. Дизайн должен быть адаптивным. Структура должна автоматически изменяться с учетом всех разрешений дисплеев.

Media types 7.1 Introduction to media types One of the most important features of style sheets is that they specify how a document is to be presented on different media: on the screen, on paper, with a speech synthesizer, with a braille device, etc. Certain CSS properties are only designed for certain media (e.g., the 'page-break-before' property only applies to paged media). 7.2 Specifying media-dependent style sheets There are currently two ways to specify media dependencies for style sheets: Specify the target medium from a style sheet with the @media or @import at-rules. The @import rule is defined in the chapter on the cascade. 7.2.1 The @media rule An @media rule specifies the target media types (separated by commas) of a set of statements (delimited by curly braces). Style rules outside of @media rules apply to all media types that the style sheet applies to. 7.3 Recognized media types The names chosen for CSS media types reflect target devices for which the relevant properties make sense. all tty
