A Colorful Clock With CSS & jQuery

A Colorful Clock With CSS & jQuery
Martin Angelov The first wave of Christmas holidays passed and we are looking forward to New Year’s Eve for a fresh start at all those things we failed to do the last 12 months. And in the mood of the upcoming holiday, this week we are going to make a colorful jQuery & CSS clock, which will help you keep track of those precious last seconds of the year. This is also the first tutorial that features our first very own jQuery plug-in – tzineClock (soon to be released officially in a post of its own). Go ahead, download the demo files and continue with step one. Step 1 – XHTML As usual, we start with the XHTML markup. This saves us from having to manually type similar blocks of code for each one of the dials (there are three of them, one for the hours, the minutes and the seconds). Lets take a look at the XHTML that is inserted by jQuery: jquery.tzineClock.js This code is contained in jquery.tzineClock/jquery.tzineClock.js. Lets continue with the next step.

A jQuery inline form validation, because validation is a mess « When it comes to form validation, it’s hard to have a versatile solution that works with every form. Figuring out how to display errors is not a simple task. This is something I tried to remedy with this script. When an error needs to be displayed, the script creates a div and positions it in the top right corner of the input. This way you don’t have to worry about your HTML form structure. Download the source code View demo Validations range from email, phone, url to more complex calls such as ajax processing. **Important**: v2 is a significant rewrite of the original 1.7 branch. Legacy 1.7 documentation and download can be found under package when you hit download on github Installation 1. Running the Demos Most demos are functional by opening their respective HTML file. 1. References First link jQuery to the page Attach *jquery.validationEngine* and its locale Finally link the desired theme Field validations Validations are defined using the field’s **class** attribute.

Building a jQuery Image Scroller In this tutorial, we're going to be building an image scroller, making use of jQuery's excellent animation features and generally having some fun with code. Image scrollers are of course nothing new; versions of them come out all the time. Many of them however are user-initiated; meaning that in order for the currently displayed content to change, the visitor must click a button or perform some other action. This scroller will be different in that it will be completely autonomous and will begin scrolling once the page loads. The finished widget will be completely cross-browser and perform as expected in the latest versions of all of the most common browsers. Getting Started Let's create the underlying HTML page first of all; in a new page in your text editor add the following code: Save this as imageScroller.html inside a new folder. Our widget consists of a series of nested containers and a bunch of images wrapped in links. Styling the Widget Bringing the Widget to Life Changing Direction

jQuery quickie: Slot machine style navigation Navigation is one of the things you'll see on every website. I wanted to give this part a little bit extra life, and when I saw a movie yesterday that included slot machines, it suddenly hit me. Using jQuery and some basic CSS and HTML, we could add some sweet slot machine style animation to a normally boring kind of navigation. Since it's not such an advanced technique, this is also a jQuery quickie. Already wondering how it works? As usual, we want to keep our HTML as short and clean as possible. <ul id="jquerynav" class="navigation"><li><a href="#" class="marcofolio"></a></li><li><a href="#" class="rss">RSS</a></li><li><a href="#" class="twitter">Twitter</a></li><li><a href="#" class="jquery">jQuery</a></li></ul> Take note of the different class and id attributes we need to use. This is all the HTML we need to make this example work. Although the CSS isn't very spectacular, there is something that is the actual key to make this technique work. jQuery That's about it!

CSS: Elastic Videos While I was coding the Elemin Theme (a responsive WordPress theme that I recently designed), one of the challenges that I faced was to make the embedded videos elastic. Using the max-width:100% and height:auto trick works with native HTML5 video tag, but it doesn't work with embed code using iframe or object tag. After hours of experimenting and Googling, I finally found a trick on how to achieve this. If you are creating a responsive design, this simple CSS trick will come in handy.
