35 Advance Techniques Of JavaScript – Tutorials

JavaScript tutorials is very welcomed by the web developer or designers since many modern techniques relied on the world wide web. They need always follow various web techniques and scripts for best user experience. Then following we prepared some basic but helpful JavaScript tutorials maybe you wanted.

Giving users the ability to interact with your web site is one of the key elements to its success. Allowing users to post a comment or response and socially sharing are two of the basic fundamentals of web interaction, another, maybe less popular, is giving users the quickfire option of grading or rating a post, by using the super simple five star method or by the voting up or down approach.

In this industry – now more than ever – designers are becoming coders, and coders are becoming designers. The idea of a developer ONLY performing frontend or backend work is quickly becoming a dated concept. jQuery will help to bridge the gap. Javascript is not an unattainable skill.

Lightbox 2

Lightbox is a simple, unobtrusive script used to overlay images on the current page. It’s a snap to setup and works on all modern browsers.

Advance Techniques Of JavaScript - Tutorials - Designsmag


After researching every single modal window, lightbox, slimbox, etc out there nothing fit the bill. Granted some of them were very nice but only fit a specific purpose, others were a nightmare on the code end, and others were just hacks of another. None of them truly supported all of the features we needed and those that were close could not be easily adapted without a bottle of Prozac near by.

Other caveats were the complete lack of ability to style and position the system, and the insane over-kill of some of the systems trying to
reproduce either another desktop (As if most computer users aren’t confused enough) or the reproduction of a popup window (Show me someone
who likes popup windows…). Lastly, most people didn’t actually test for their media types and how they behaved in other browsers and operating
systems (Yes the movies and Flash work in Firefox for the Mac).

jQuery Tutorial – How to Make a Smooth Animated Menu with jQuery

Ever seen some excellent jQuery navigation that left you wanting to make one of your own? Today we’ll aim to do just that by building a menu
and animate it with some smooth effects. The menu has such a smooth animation because of a thing called “easing”. Adobe’s definition in the
Flash Developer Center is a little more complete:

“The term easing refers to gradual acceleration or deceleration during an animation, which helps your animations appear more realistic.
Easing creates a more natural appearance of acceleration or deceleration by gradually adjusting the rate of change.”

How to Detect the Social Sites Your Visitors Use

One of the great things about the web is the relative ease with which one can set up a new service. In social bookmarking alone with have, Digg, Facebook, Fark, Mister-Wong, Newsvine, Reddit, Technorati, Slashdot, and StumbleUpon, to name a few. That’s great for competition, and that’s great for users, but it’s not so good for bloggers and content creators.

What are you to do if you want readers to promote your content? Kevin Rose, of Digg, put it succinctly: “Encourage your visitors to submit
their favorite stories directly to Digg [with a Digg badge].” Not everyone uses Digg. You have to decide on which bookmarking site, if
any, to dedicate your precious screen real-estate. It’s a hard choice. If you choose poorly your reader won’t vote—it’s not a single click
coupled and out-of-sight means out-of-mind—and your content losses its chance to make it big. You have to choose your horse wisely.

Sponsor Flip Wall With jQuery & CSS

Designing and coding a sponsors page is part of the developer’s life (at least the lucky developer’s life, if it is about a personal site of theirs). It, however, follows different rules than those for the other pages of the site. You have to find a way to fit a lot of information and organize it clearly, so that the emphasis is put on your sponsors, and not on other elements of your design.

We are using PHP, CSS and jQuery with the jQuery Flip plug-in, to do just that. The resulting code can be used to showcase your sponsors, clients or portfolio projects as well.

How to Create a Drop-down Nav Menu with HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery

In this tutorial, we’ll take a look and see what we can achieve with HTML5 and CSS3 when it comes to the staple of current web sites: the humble drop-down navigation menu. We’ll also use jQuery to handle the effects and add the finishing touches for us.

HTML5 brings to the spec a dedicated <nav> element that should be used as the container for any major navigation structure, such as the main vertical or horizontal site navigation menus, or an in-page table of contents for example. IE unfortunately doesn’t support this new element yet, but there is a simple fix we can use, of which I’m sure you’re all aware.

Using CSS3 we can do away with what would have required the use of several background images and possibly an additional wrapping container or two and rely (almost) purely on some of the new style properties, such as rounded corners and drop-shadows for example, that are available to supporting browsers. Again, not all browsers (cough, IE!) support these new rules, but we can very easily provide fall-back solutions for the browsers that can’t handle our styles.
