This is probably quite a simple problem but I can't figure out the answer. I'm working on a site that has news stories and events coming in. What I would like is to have the news stories to be styled with squares and events with discs for instance. I might be able to change the actual plug-in so the CSS affects this change, but I just wondered how I could change the list-style-type with jQuery.
My understanding had been that $.css("width") would return the original user selected style, eg "100%" or "10em", and $.width() returned the computed width, always in "px". Not so, following the code through for .css(), it calls something called getComputedStyle and the only difference between the two functions turns out to be a post-fix of "px" on the .css() result - not very useful. I need to know whether my user has called me with a proportional dimension, or a fixed one. How to tell with jQuery?
I am wondering if there is a way to set the list-style img attribute in css to actually be a href to the external .js ??? Or can I set the img attr to a href through the dom using "append"? If not, does anyone have some good ideas on how I can acheive this so that the list stays expanded until only the FIRST item is clicked on.
I am just moving over to jquery. Previously i had been using prototype and scriptaculous, im trying to figure out how to set a div relative to another div. in prototype i would of used 'setStyle' to do this. how to do the same in jquery?
I have a client, let's call them "BuyNow." They would like for every instance of their name throughout the copy of their site to be stylized like "BuyNow," where the second half of their name is in bold.
I'd really hate to spend a day adding <strong> tags to all the copy. Is there a good way to do this using jQuery?
I've just started to learn jQuery since yesterday so there are a lot to learn. My question is about the jQuery UI dialog: How can I use the style that was used for the button in the dialog for asp.net buttons? I would like all my buttons to have the same look and feel.
OK, been banging my head with this for a while. I have a dynamic sitewhere we get a list of elements from the database, we identify theseitems with id numbers and encoded get strings. So I'm trying to getstyle changes to take affect with jquery and it really just doesn'twork.I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Here is the source code:
I'm trying to implement my first jQuery UI combobox. I have the data displaying and filtering as expected. However, the expected style doesn't seem to be getting applied. configuration or restrictions for trying to implement this? Do I have to specify a "class" or is it possible to just specify a "style" for the control?
I'm not sure this is the right group to post to, I've just found this group.I notice the old alt.dhtml group has been murdered, overwhelmed by spam. On my page: [URL] I am trying to get an element's style.top, style.marginTop, and backgroundColor. I can successfully do getElementById( ) on the element, but I can't get any settings from the element. If you bring up the page, all of this stuff is supposed to display in a header-like line just under the small banner. I can see that the doc's scrollTop has been retrieved OK (it wiggles if you move the vertical scroll bar) but all the other stuff is MIA. What am I doing wrong that I can't get this element's style properties? In the source, the function 'scroll(),' which is trying to read these properties, is at line 52.
