Introduction To The HTML 5 Unique Design Application For Mobile Computing

Introduction to HTML 5

An adaptive, flexible and mobile friendly web design can be easily attained using the infamous HTML. Its aim is to have a responsive environment in which HTML is structured for priority, flexibility and optimization. At the same time, the CSS is employed for queries management, dynamic screen size and adjustability. The use of JavaScript is also resorted to, in order to provisionally play all content parts on the website, which can employ the use of touch technology.

HTML 5 and Web responsiveness

The use of HTML5 for web designing is justified by the fact that its degree of responsiveness is unheard of as compared to any other form of website designing protocol. The use of fluid grids, adjustable images, pixilation, format and queries related to media consumption are all nonexistent issues even with the varying screen sizes, which the website employs while using the HTML 5 design protocol for its website pages.

BigQuery and responsiveness factor

For example, take the instance of BigQuery protocol software. BQ stands for Big Query, which is the software protocol for online virtual servers that can optimally analyze data sets within a large database being uploaded onto the net. The BQ uses similar protocols which allows a responsive interface in which the website can perform exceedingly well in any physical platform or device. BQ can be used to reconstruct an e-commerce site for a company making the site more practical and assessable on a mobile or Smartphone. This is relevant nowadays, when most purchases are made online using mobiles as the medium of transaction execution.

Technicalities

For structural purposes, the markup for the HTML to be implemented must be lean and semantic. Additional user interface function such as an online keyboard in the case of a HTML input domain type can be designed for ready use by the user. The next step is to adjust the viewpoint to an acceptable degree. The application of a larger viewpoint is expected in those smart phones, which are designed, keeping in mind that the website assessed will be traditionally designed for non-mobile internet users.

Utilization benefits

These browser viewpoints can be invoked using the pinch and pull mechanism to zoom in or out of a specific set of data, text or image on the website. Rigid or fixed positional elements are implicated but not recommended in mobile web user interface. Content fragments are rationally utilized to lessen the loading time of the website. HTML special characters are used to reduce background imagery through solid figures. The telephone URL Scheme is used to make direct calls through the click of a URL link. CSS employs Separate style sheet in case the larger screens are adapted for smaller resolutions.

Conclusion

Design functionality and plasticity of layout are very important, when the use of HTML 5 is employed in mobile phones that have computing technical capability. Web layout is advancing day by day and the requirement is to make the web experience more vivid on different platforms.

JQuery Simple Message Dialog Plugin

Sometimes, when working with JavaScript, we need to write a confirm dialog or message box to display some informative data. We can either use JavaScript alert function or confirm function for such operations. But in order to make a nice UI, we can resort to JQuery UI dialog, which gives a nice chrome window. But settings that up is not a one liner task. In this article, I will present a small plugin which will help us display some basic dialog just to get the job done without too much code.

ASP.NET MVC – Binding to Dictionary

Today I came across a situation where I had a display a list of combo boxes inside a part of a complicated tab based form. The model of the view was a different object then this particular section I was trying to render. I had a different controller action to do the updates.

After googling I came across this article from Scott ASP.NET Wire Format for Model Binding to Arrays, Lists, Collections, Dictionaries which turned out to be very helpful.

While implementing this all I need the binder to return something like a dictionary of int key with int value.

[HttpPost]
public ActionResult EditProjectAccess(int? id, Dictionary<intint> ProjectAccess)
{
}

So in my View I used the following snippet:

Var counter = 0;
foreach (var item in ProductGroups)
{
<fieldset>
<legend>@item.GroupName</legend>
@foreach
(var pj
in
item.Products)
{            

    <dl>
    <dt>@pj.Name:</dt>
    <dd
class=”text”>
    
@if
(Model.ResourceId

==

pj.ProjectManagerId)
    {
        <text><strong>Project
Manager</strong></text>
    }
    else
    {
        @Html.Hidden(“ProjectAccess[” + counter + “].key”, pj.ProductId)
        @(Html.DropDownList(“ProjectAccess[” + counter + “].value”new SelectList(new List<Object>{
          new { value = “0” , text = “No Access”  },
          new { value = “1” , text = “Participant” },
          }, “value”“text”, pj.HasAccess(Model.ResourceId)?0:1)))
        counter++;
     }
    </dd>
    </dl>
    
}

</fieldset>
}

 

The key here was using the Hidden field for storing the key name, and the combo box for the value field. One thing though the counter values should be incremental, i.e. no gaps in sequence. Else on the model you will only get up to the sequenced item.

So now I can easily get access to my dictionary list and figure what each of those combo was values was selected to. The key can be string as well and the value can be complex object. Just follow Scott’s blog article.
