TinyNav.js · Convert navigation to a select dropdown on small screen Auto-Hide Sticky Header Auto-hide sticky header is a shot that shoots down two rabbits: makes site navigation easily accessible anywhere on the page and saves content space at the same. My client, Easy Shine, was happy to have this type of header for their website. I've also implemented this technique here, on my website (you can see it when the width of your viewport is below 768 px).

Le « Responsive Web Design » est né, car nous sommes de plus en plus confrontés aux mêmes problèmes que les architectes : s'adapter aux supports. Voyez plutôt : autrefois, nous n'avions qu'un ou deux navigateurs et les tailles d'écrans variaient peu. Et tout cela, c'est ce que nous avons maintenant. Pour faire une application Web qui soit Responsive Web Design, nous devons établir les trois points suivants : Si nous faisons une analogie avec l'architecture, les trois derniers points représentent nos outils.

Pull Down for Navigation 27th February, 2012 Tom Kenny Tutorials Mobile screen real estate is at a premium and one of the biggest problems to solve is how to display navigation when screen widths become quite narrow so I decided to have a look and see what I could come up with using some nifty CSS and a touch of jQuery.

Pull Down to Refresh Pull down to refresh was a concept first introduced to the mobile world by Loren Brichter in his Twitter app, Tweetie as you can see in the screenshot here. Pull Down for Navigation You can see where I’m going with this but the whole thinking of replacing a UI element with a natural gesture (scrolling on a touch screen is about as close to a ‘natural gesture’ you can get in technology) is very valuable on a mobile screen. Demo Currently this exists as a great solution to single level navigation only. Step 1 The HTML Step 2 The CSS Step 3 The jQuery
