I was doing up a DNN site and had some fun lessons learned. Lesson 1: Making DNN look good isn't as hard as it looks.Most of the editing I ended up doing to make the site look un-DNNish was within a few ascx files and the css files. Of course, if you want some custom stuff that requires modules, that's a whole other story. Luckily this site didn't need too much as far as custom coding went. I was able to drop in an ad-rotator to swap out the banner image on the fly pretty painlessly, and changing ...

I found this earlier tonight and as it didnt have a direct link, I decided to directly copy and paste it. A Simple CSS Image preloading technique Saturday, April 22, 2006 So you need to pre-load images, but don't want to deal with javascript or complicated workarounds. What do you do? The solution is simple. All we need to do is designate a CSS style with multiple background-images. As your browser reads the style, it will load each image you designate in succession, thus pre-loading your images. ...
For a while I have been adding books to the library feed of this site one at a time. Here is a list of books that I currently keep on my “must have” bookshelf. I will update this periodically as new volumes are added and dropped.

Customizing - DotNetNuke Search Input - The Problem In a Recent Project I had felt the need to customize the DotNetNuke search input. If you've used DotNetNuke Search Inputs before you might have realized that the search Input Module is a little limiting in terms of customization. So, basically the kind of search inputs that you can have in DotNetNuke (based on what I currently know) are: Of course, you could customize this slightly or you could have another kind with a picture just by changing the ...
The problem that IE has while making the PNG transparent using filter CSS can be solved by using the Sleight.js but this script doesn't seems to be work for the background images (I mean, if the PNG images are loading as "background-image" style tag) Basically, the Sleight.js works like as follows, Make the all images (img, input:image) int the document invisible Loop thru each and every PNG files Apply the filter option to the PNG file thru an Image object Make the all images (img, input:image) ...

It contains more than 150 pages with CSS and JavaScript tips and tricks, and is one of the best sources on the WWW for studying and defeating ...

User Interface Library is a set of utilities and controls, written in JavaScript, for building richly interactive web applications using techniques such as DOM scripting, HTML and AJAX. The UI Library Utilities facilitate the implementation of rich client-side features by enhancing and normalizing the developer's interface to important elements of the browser infrastructure (such ...
Book eight is The CSS Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks by Rachel Andrew (ISBN 0-9579218-8-8). I am by no means an expert in XHTML and CSS or web design. But I have been coding HTML apps for a decade. Moving to XHTML makes some aspects of web development so much easier, but the little problems of positioning and browser compatibility can be overwhelming, especially with complex interfaces. This book works well answering questions, how the h%ll do I do that?! The book takes a what ...

Just got set up with the blog. Being a UI Designer/Programmer, I'm going to have to try and create a custom style that suits my needs. What to expect from this blog?

So a bunch of wierd things might happen to this ...
If the Falcons weren't going to win the Superbowl this year, I'm glad it was the Steelers. Bill Cowher definately deserved it, as did Bettis. The Seahawks...its too bad that they had to be the losers in this game, but they just didn't make the plays and afterwards I was really impressed that they all gave props to the Steelers and took the loss like men...class acts all the way. I'm trying to do something different with my personal website. I'm going to try and implement it as much as possible without ...
We are starting a new project, and I have been trying my hardest to use XHTML. In the past, I have always used HTML, so this is my first real shot at it. XHTML definitely makes the site more accessible to people with disabilities, renders faster and keeps the HTML clean. What I'm missing is a good designer to layout my site. Any suggestions, or do I need to do this by hand? The most frustrating part is not getting the layout to look good, it's getting it to look good and the same in both Firefox ...

Wierd...

I looked at a post I posted yesterday, because I got a comment, and my custom CSS that I put in is gone.

Gone is my wonderful teal colored background, that I like so much.

Oh Well.  I'll figure out the color scheme again!

or anything for that matter. I was just reading this post http://geekswithblogs.net/d... There are 2 major problems with the solution presented. 1) it requires a recompile to change the colors 2) this should really be in a style sheet Thus I present ... the style sheet implementation just set the datagridrow to be the right class. in your css .DataGridRow{ background-color: black; border: 0px; behavior: url(/styles/rollover.htc); } in a .htc file <PUBLIC:COMPONENT> ...
In case you've been looking for a decent .Text blogging tool for the desktop, you should check PostXING. It's a WYSIWYG editor tool that outputs decent HTML (at least tags are lowercase, etc.), and allows you to edit previous posts, unlike "IMHO Instant Blogger" which was my previous choice. It includes built-in syntax high-lighting for C#, VB.Net, JScript and XML. Some of its other features include: customizable CSS stylesheet for the preview function, a crosspost function to publish the post to ...

I bit the bullet today and started my first 2005 solution. I'm not talking about a “coding for fun” project. I'm talking about an enterprise solution. Specifically, to handle automated shipping and receiving for RFID. I had started the solution with VS 2003, but decided to convert what I had (currently only two projects and about 30 classes) based on my experiences so far and the information from the RFID framework provider, Globeranger. Although, the iMotion EdgeWare framework does not ...
Last week, I purchased the new Wrox Publisher ASP.NET book called Professional ASP.NET 2.0 by Bill Evjen, Scott Hanselman, Farhan Muhammad, S. Srinivasa Sivakumar, Devin Rader. The book was mentioned on Brian Goldfarb’s blog. Brian works with ASP.NET at Microsoft Corporation and he’s bright and super energetic. I’ve heard him talk on a couple of occasions and more recently heard him on a webcast that he did on stage with Steve Balmer at the VS Studio event in San Francisco. A couple ...

Ever since I got my hands on .NET 2.0 I noticed the handler webresource.axd which seemed to provide a similar function as what I was using handlers for. I used handlers in .NET 1.1 and before today also in .NET 2.0 to handle my javascript and css that I need in controls I developped. I mark them before compiling as embedded resource and then later on read them out via reflection and they get served up by the browser.I probably don't have to explain that (as long as your parameters don't change) this ...
I stopped posting over the last few days due to the service changes at GeeksWithBlogs. They have decided to include advertisements on all of their hosted blogs and feeds. I can understand their need: the community is growing rapidly and it's costing more money to support. I would have preferred it if we (as a part of this community) had been given a chance to comment on this change and even been given the option of ponying up some money. My guess is that many members here would pay in advance for ...
This is a very good article on how to “easily” create a flexible CSS based layout. The design uses a three-column format but could be changed to two. Pure CSS-based layouts have come a long way but they still have shortcomings that fail to address certain design goals without compromising the true separation of content and presentation. In short, the problematic design goals are these: Total Layout Flexibility That is, the ability to order columns logically in the source while displaying ...
If you post code to a blog, your own website, or code-developer sites, you often require the capability to embed code-excerpts into your writings. The easiest solution is to make use of an HTML generator that renders your source-code to HTML. This has already been done - many times - but most of these solutions rely on using class or CSS style tags. Although elegant, the HTML generated is often not suitable for publishing without modification. A comprehensive example of this type of solution is here: ...
Okay, so that was a little over the top. Basically I wanted to find out whether I could do much with the appearance of my blog, given the fact that I am not hosting it. So my choice of skins is limited to what Geeks With Blogs provides. I have been putting it off for a while now, but today was an unusually slow day and I decided to take a peek under the hood. The appearance of my blog now, is what used to be the LuxLight display skin. So what did I do? Well I shifted the sidebar to the left. I made ...
I read about this tool on someone's blog a week or two ago, downloaded it and only just got around to installing it (sorry, I can't remember where I heard about it originally). If you are creating any sort of web content this tool is bound to be useful. I used to use the developer tools in firefox to test and fix css issues, but this tool has a number of cool features that set it apart from the ones available in the Firefox extension - it has a DOM browser that lets you drill down the DOM hierarchy ...

Sometimes we need to set the style sheet of a particular control dynamically. This can easily be done by traversing down the Page Control Hirarchy. private void Button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e) { // I made 10 Labels controls dynamically and put them inside the Panel control int counter = 0; string style = ddlStyle.SelectedItem.Value; // Go into the Page Control Collection foreach(Control c in Page.Controls) { if(c.HasControls()) { // Go inside the form element foreach(Control c2 in ...

There will also be a new security status bar, a phishing filter, and full control of add-ons. ...

Slashdot does it again. I have had a list of places to go when looking for help on numerous issues. CSS being one of them. When I opened Slash this morning and saw this post, I was very happy. I have used 2 resources on this list for some CSS issues but they have a nice list that can be added to my bag of tricks Here is a top 10 list of css resources - http://www.sitepronews.com/... One thing I really agree on is the fact that CSS can make a site seem more compatible w/ multiple ...
We have just launched a new site at work today. www.omnova.com. The interesting part of this launch is the use of a new server application called Macromedia Flex. You can get to the application part of this site by going to www.omnova.com/designcenter. The Flex application allows for a rich internet user interface to be generated through remote data access points. We had many issues getting this application to work in specific environments. Many of these issues were based on both the types of browsers ...

After you return from your holiday and fire up your favourite web-development-environment textpad. You start creating Css and you hate your holiday because it made you forget all the css tags and selectors. For YOU Dave Child created a handy, 1 page printable css cheatsheet.

It's a lot more handy to use than the W3C site. You can find it here.

 

I will be tweaking the appearance of my blog over the next several days, so excuse the progressive changes.  I am also reminding myself about what I have forgotten about customizing CSS as I go.
The whole problem I had is posted at ASP.net forum http://forums.asp.net/97952... The work around for “HyperLink doesn't show the Hand cursor when I hover my mouse on it” is to create a CSS class .Hlink { cursor: hand; } and manully assign the HypyLink control's cssclass name ='Hlink” ...
In the last few days I've been working at my old profession - HTML monkey, and let me tell you I realise why I stopped (even though I never really stopped). My wife performes with this music group, they play Rebetiko (greek blues, I guess) and she sings. Like all music groups they are trying hard to gain recognition - and as part of that they decided they want a Website. So we're starting small as the budget is low, and for started I started by designing a simple web site (I'll do the administrative ...
Microsoft Content Management Server 2002 makes it easy to create multiple websites using the same template set. This feature is very useful if you are creating sites that require different feel and look but same/similar functionality or at-least share some templates between each other.The challenge here is how to add a CSS to the rendered posting so the feel and look is different depending on which MCMS Site Hierarchy you are in. Following is the solution. This solution allows you to treat CSS files ...
One can create cool hovers with css user the :hover pseudoclass. Look for example here: http://www.domedia.org/ovek... or for more examples search google. We (cool programmers) want mouse-over on div elements too!The firefoxbrowser has implemented the hover pseudoclass to work with all elements. IE on the other hand only has a working hover pseudoclass for the a-element. In order to simulate this behaviour, Sjaak Priester has created a simple HTC solution. Read about it ...
This is so cool! Have you ever struggled with customizing the look and feel of your SharePoint Portal site? For example, which CSS class controls the background color of the navigation bar? Well James Milne is here to save the day. James has created a GUI-based skin designer for SharePoint.

Once you get it looking just the way you like, you can view ...
Over at BetaNews there is an article MSN In Need of an Image Makeover?. After reading it over and then going over to Torres Talking which is blogs MSN - Early adopters and "influencers". I was thinking how can there be any buzz about products when everything Microsoft does is so public. The most recent example would be IE 7. We already know what they are planning. I can picture it in my head tabbed browser, CSS 2.0, etc. So will I be excited when I get my hands on it yet? Of course, but will I be ...
Mike Torres (MSN - Early adopters and "influencers") asks why? please answer him... I just deleted a lot of blah-blah, let me just answer his question from my side. Let me just say that I am an early adopter as long as it doesn't cost me money (I would spend money on those stuff, just that I don't have it to spend :-) donations are welcomed.... First, I'd like to say to you Mike is that I did try out MSN, I actually did it because I read your blog. So look at 2 - more bloggers increase exposure especially ...
When I first started with SharePoint I was pretty much surprised that the ability to create tabs was only available on meeting workspaces. I have no explanation as to why there is such a limitation. I am also currently unaware of a hack to make that system available across all WSS Sites, but here is something that I was able hooked up, and I am actually pleased with it (the main reason I am pleased with it, is because it’s nothing more than a DataView WebPart). What I wanted was a system of ...
No I wasn't fired after my week of management, nor have I received any feedback on my performance - which is very dis-appointing. Following my previous post where I kind of made it clear that I don't want to keep working here, this past week strengthened my resolve. So I did some steps - some interviews are coming ahead with some interesting options. Just for you who are looking for workers, I'm an Internet Developer mainly working with VB, ASP, SQL Server (and of course client side scripting Javascript, ...
I fixed the CSS styles for Managed World so that the site displays correctly now in Firefox and Netscape. Enjoy!
