In the last post: Drag and drop with HTML5, i explained how to drag and drop using HTML5 and Javascript (jQuery). I mentioned that touch devices such as iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, Samsung…. etc, does not support HTML5 Drag and Drop features.

Now, in this post, i want to explain how to make Drag and Drop possible for all devices. Before we start, you must know that it’s all about Javascript..  And i will use jQuery library while i am familiar with it and it simplifies writing javascript.

jQuery Gloss Plugin

It’s lovely to make you webpage interactive. jQuery plugins add effects to multiple elements of HTML. jQuery Gloss adds a Gloss (shining) effect to images by simple and lightweight code.

This effect is added on hover effect (mouseover, mouseout).

This plugin is ~2.2 Kb and it’s simple as:

  • Add a DIV element to hold the image with class=”gloss”. eg:
    <div class=”gloss”><img src=”” alt=”Image gloss effect” /></div>
  • Include the script file of jQuery Gloss plugin. eg:
    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”gloss.1.0.js”></script>
  • Call the Gloss function. eg:
    <script type=”text/javascript”>$(document).ready(function (){ $.gloss(); });</script>
    OR
    add this before </body>: <script type=”text/javascript”> $.gloss();  </script>

jQuery: Catch Keyboard Events

Lot of jQuery projects relies on keyboard/mouse event like pressing “p” for previous and “n” for next also using the arrows.

Because this is important, I have managed a code to get the keyboard character on 3 events:
– Keypress
– Keyup
– Keydown

I have created a function to return the key as below:

 
function getKey(key){ 
  if ( key == null ) { 
    keycode = event.keyCode; // To Mozilla 
  } else { 
    keycode = key.keyCode; 
  } 
  // Return the key in lower case form 
  return String.fromCharCode(keycode).toLowerCase(); 
} 

Now let’s use the events:

 /*Keypress*/ 
$(document).keypress(function (eh){ 
  alert("Keypress: The key is: "+getKey(eh)); 
});
/*Keyup*/
$(document).keyup(function (eh){
  alert("Keyup: The key is: "+getKey(eh));
});

/*keydown*/
$(document).keydown(function (eh){
  alert("Keydown: The key is: "+getKey(eh));
});

To see an exaple of this code, please check the demo below:

Have fun.

Scroll window smoothly using jQuery

Using jQuery animate() function to do a smooth scrolling:

I have also created a div as follow:


<div id="scrollToHere">
Scroll to here
</div>

You need something to run your script. Create a button like this:


<input type="button" onclick="scollWin();" value="Scroll up" />

The jQuery Code will be like this:


function scrollWin(){
$('html,body').animate({
scrollTop: $("#scrollToHere").offset().top
}, 800);
}

Here is something to try:

now jQuery window scrolling is done with animation.

Enjoy it..

Web page transparency for all browsers

Every browser has different CSS properties for less-used actions like: transparency or opacity.
It was something weird to do transparency on your web page because there are lot of different web browsers. To make that easy, I have collected information and generated a CSS class that will work on most of the browsers.
See the Code below:


.transparent {
	filter:alpha(opacity=75);
	-moz-opacity:0.75;
	-khtml-opacity: 0.75;
	opacity: 0.75;
}

filter:alpha(opacity=75); is used for Internet Explorer.
-moz-opacity:0.75; is used for Mozilla, Firefox, Netscape browsers (old versions).
-khtml-opacity: 0.75; is used for old versions of Safari.
opacity: 0.75; is used as a standard CSS property for browsers like Firefox 2+ and Safari 3+ and Opera
