Browser size aware content scaling

Just recently, I noticed something pretty cool at Google Images: When you resize your browser, search results are hidden/shown, depending if it makes a full row. It does really have a big advantage: you'll never have any "empty spots" on your website. The grid is always fully filled and results that don't fit in the grid, are simply hidden.

I wanted to recreate this technique using jQuery. Just like Google Images, it check how many images fit in each row and hides the one that fall off (depending on the browser size).

Browser size aware content scaling

The difference between my HTML and the one Google, is that Google uses a table to display the image. My version uses floating images (but essentially, they work the same). Just make sure to check out the demo.

Now let's take a deeper look at the problem, the solution and how you create your own browser size aware content scaling.

Create a mouse follower with smokey trail in Silverlight

Last week, I started experimenting with Microsoft Silverlight. I've never worked with the technique before, but after using it, I was impressed. It works pretty good and the separation of the XAML and CS file is great.

Today, we're going to create a Smokey Mouse Follower in Silverlight. This was my first experiment too and pretty fun to see. I have to admit that the layout can be improved in loads of ways, but this tutorial is intended to be for beginner Silverlight users.

Mouse Follower

We'll be using Microsoft Expression Blend 3 in this tutorial. Visual Studio will probably give the same effect, but I haven't tested it. We're going to create the program using Visual C#. The images (cursors) I used are from IconFinder.

Make sure to check out the demo to see what we're going to create! As you can see, it's not really that useful, but pretty fun to see. Also, it's a great way to get in touch with Silverlight. Let's start!

Create a better jQuery stylesheet switcher

Style Sheet switchers (or "colour theme choosers") are not really that new. Apart from that fact, they still are pretty fun to use and cool to see. I was wondering how jQuery could help me achieve this technique. While searching, I came across several solutions.

There is a problem when using these techniques, which I will explain later. I created a little work-around to create a better jQuery stylesheet switcher. We'll simply change some colours for the user!

Theatrical movie trailer with jQuery

Don't you wonder sometimes, when looking at something, how you can create something like that yourself? I have to admit that I do. This is why I came up with the Skype for Mac and the iPhone examples in your webbrowser. Today, we're trying something new in this Proof of Concept category: creating a theatrical movie trailer with jQuery

Theatrical movie trailer with jQuery

This technique could be really well used when creating a slide-show that just needs some text. Using the CSS letter-spacing property, we can really make it look like the movies.

I'll leave out the CSS in this tutorial, since not much really important stuff is going on there. This example works best in Firefox - Although it works in Safari and Opera too, the letter-spacing CSS property gets rounded up (or down) and you won't be able to see the full effect. Also, you'll need to imagine the sound effects yourself.

jQuery Code Expander

There is a problem on the web. Displaying actual programming code takes away a lot of space of the webpage (especially the longer ones). You can split up the code in several parts, but that's really hard to read for programmers. You can leave it "as it is" and users would have to scroll a lot if they're not interested in the code itself. And scrollbars in code-examples - that's just horrible (and yes - that's what I have on this website).

I created a solution for this problem and call it the jQuery Code Expander. It does exactly what you think it does - Expand any code you want to place online using jQuery.

But, before you can expand anything, it has to be cropped. That's where the CSS kicks in. It's like a combination of using scrollbars and fully showing the code!

This script only changes those elements that needs to be expanded and doesn't touch those who don't. An additional overlay image is added, just to show the user that it can expand the code example. Check out the demo and read below what the secret of this technique is.

The Mac Skype App menu with CSS3 and jQuery

If you're a regular visitor of Marcofolio, you know I love to create (and share) some wicked Proof of Concepts (For example: the Polaroid photo viewer and the iPhone Contacts App). They are nothing more than showing some amazing potential of certain techniques.

Today, I wanted to transfer the amazing slick Skype (for Mac) layout to your own webbrowser. Not the full layout: Only the menu where all your friends are listed. For the nifty layout we're going to use CSS3 and for the extra functionality (ofcourse) jQuery.

The Mac Skype App menu with CSS3 and jQuery

Features:

  • Expanding and hiding the contact details.
  • Nifty layout using CSS3.
  • Extra info (behind each name that is not expanded) is added through jQuery.

Sadly, just like all other CSS3 examples placed here, not all browsers support this functionality. Only browsers that support the -webkit prefix (Safari and Chrome) and the latest version of Firefox (3.5 through the -moz prefix) are fully working. Other browsers will show the menu without the extra markup.

OK, here we go! Let's see how you can create one of these wicked Skype menu's yourself. The users listed in the demo are the friends of Marcofolio (same that are placed in the footer) with their Twitter profile picture and links.
