Colouring In Drag and Drop River Reveal Game Tutorial

Colouring In Drag and Drop River Reveal Game Tutorial

Colouring In Drag and Drop River Reveal Game Tutorial

Today’s blog posting has a “theme song” … deep. Yes, onto yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop World Reveal Sharing Tutorial‘s …

  • World Reveal game … we use a lot of it’s ideas to present …
  • Rivers Reveal game

… today, thanks to the data from HTTP://geojson.xyz rivers lake centerlines.

The interesting difference between these two functionalities, that share a World Map background image, is that to plot a river, no single cross is going to suffice. We need to do some grandparent innerHTML element nesting a …

  • parent innerHTML element using …
    1. position:absolute;
    2. left:[minimumXco-ordinate]px;
    3. top:[minimumYco-ordinate]px;
    4. z-index:[large];

    … nesting …

  • SVG … width=”[maximumXco-ordinate – minimumXco-ordinate]” height=”[maximumYco-ordinate – minimumYco-ordinate]”
  • polyline … attribute “points” X,Y co-ordinate sets such that minumum X one will be 0 and maximum Y one will be 0
  • initially invisible … becoming visible …
  • if correct dragging or at the end of the dragging

… though those last two apply to the World Reveal game, as well. You might recall a lot of this going on when we presented Australian Indigenous Language SVG Overlay Tutorial. These SVG overlay ideas can be extremely useful, on occasions! The other choice was HTML div elements between the “dot” span ones and apply “diagonally across line” linear gradient style CSS we talked about at Earth Scanner Linear Gradient Leg Tutorial. All this diagonality can be fun to achieve!

Also added into the mix are lots of ways to click the plot elements to navigate to useful Wikipedia webpages, thanks.

It’s a semi-cloning scenario today, so the “level playing field” collaboration ideas have also been brought across …

Colouring In Drag and Drop World Reveal Sharing Tutorial

When a lot of us think of games or quizzes, we think “level playing field”, at least at the start of a game. In other words, the way the game starts the players are faced with the same or similar conditions to play the game under. And so, onto the logic for the World Reveal game subsection of functionality of our Colouring In web application, as of yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop World Reveal Geography Tutorial, today, we’ve added in logic so that …

  • a World Reveal incarnation of the Colouring In web application can be shared via …
    1. email
    2. SMS

    … and …

  • the first ten (as a default, and can be changed via a ?qnum=55 style of argument or #qnum=67 style of hashtag) questions are the same for the originator as the recipient

Encryption wise the simplest to share is alpha data and here it is with this. Country ISO-2 character code sharing needs no delimitation, just for us, looping through two characters (also used, along with function orflag below to make the draggable element into a Country flag emoji) at a time!

  • World Reveal subsection of functionality … could do with …
  • more education
  • less computer labour dependence

… that last one we determined as necessary, by the sporadic results we were getting, so that a redesign depended less on table cell “ondragover” event logic, rather …

  • also helping out with geography education (as needed) … we started …
  • at first, invisibly, plotting a country’s first TimeZone placename (with its “ondragover” event clause) …

    <?php

    $newih='<table border=1 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 style="width: 90%; height: 53%;" id="mytable"><tbody id=mytbody></tbody></table><div ondragover=enact(this,String.fromCharCode(32)); id="placecross"></div>';

    ?>

    … but having a large enough CSS z-index property value so that if the user “ondragover” passes over …

    1. the web application, now

    2. asks for only one eventuality to get a result (and so far more efficient, and more likely to respond in a timely fashion) … while at the same time …
    3. via taking away the invisibility of this TimeZone placename while passing over we show and update the score (for users scoring) … and …
    4. for users with no clue who abandoned dragging early on, shows them where that TimeZone placename (and roughly where the Country asked about) is placed in the world

  • it has intelligence regarding a “pen” type emoji element being dragged over a table full of cells
  • it can handle background images
  • it can involve text
  • it can colour table cell background colours (and/or border part(s))

… and this is functionality allowing us to add a new “pen” drag type called “World Reveal” where a semi-transparent Mercator projection World Map image is underlayed beneath semi-transparent table cells, creating a “cloudy world effect”. The user is asked to reveal a country of choice to score in the game, those table cells dragged over becoming fully transparent, showing “uncloudy world” beneath …

If you think in terms of …


Annotation functionalities

… available to the user of our current interest, the Colouring In web application, up until today, we relied on user scribbling means to involve any “textual feeling” in this project.

But, today?! Well! That’s another kettle of fish! We’re happy to say …

We’re involving real text into the mix.

… regarding the ways you creatives out there want to express themselves.

And so, onto yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Animated Background Images Tutorial we have some new involvement of …

  • tr (table row) elements given a new id attribute arrangement and some new event onclick logic … and also …
  • tbody (table body) element used as the creator’s palette (as far as positioning goes, though, as we go to air, we’re still using the tbody for co-ordinate positioning (and we wanted svg+xml text background imagery at first) but now overlay span element text over the table)

Sad about the full involvement of tbody svg+xml background image text idea not happening, but we feel that we will return to this, on paper, satisfying, and cute, idea. We have successfully applied svg+xml text ideas to tailored cursors, but we do remember a struggle and size limitations?! The attempt is there in the code for another person to do better with, if they wish.

… which should be given comma separated list values for each background-image set member.

Below, we drill down a bit …

  • background-image … comma separated list of data-URIs and/or image URLs (and perhaps, optionally, the one linear gradient prefixing opacity measure)
  • background-repeat … easy … no-repeat comma separated list
  • background-size … if one you might use contain but from there on, today we use a width percentage value and auto for the height component (eg. 33% auto)
  • background-position … top left, bottom right, top right, bottom left, center center, top center, bottom center, left center, right center … in rotation (and order is today’s thinking) … beyond 9 there will be overlaying (and maybe even before then, depending)

Despite us having precedents to turn to regarding …


establishing a layer of keyboard onkeydown event logic for a non-textbox HTML element

… we’ve had to look up so many websites for advice, thanks, that it must have been that “day of discovery” you should persevere with, for reference points into the future.

Alas, little of it can be used on mobile platforms. Their setup precludes these keyboard independency possibilities we really like about non-mobile keyboard event functionality. It can set up a “whole new woooorrrrllllddd” for your web application designs!

What was the motivation for our interest? Well, we have a mouse with a mouse wheel, and it occurred to us how useful the wheel could be when dragging and some content is below the fold, and rather than lose the dragging, you can use the mouse wheel to navigate to those areas of the webpage, still dragging your draggable element, with our Colouring In web application.

And so, onto yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Mixed Platform Collaboration Tutorial

This excellent link taught us … When tabindex’s value is set to a negative number, its element can be programmatically focused via JavaScript.
This excellent link taught us … el.focus({preventScroll: true}); # can focus to element el without involving any programmatic scrolling
This excellent link taught us … Pondered … can i simulate mousewheel up or down with javascript … and our findings … no! But interesting.
This excellent link taught us … Mused on … Drag, drop and mousewheel? … and our findings … yes for physical mouse wheel usage (hence today’s interest) … but no, regarding Javascript logic. Again, very interesting.
This excellent link taught us … We didn’t follow through on it but … How to scroll the window automatically when mouse moves bottom of the page using jquery … intimates you could use jQuery code to detect user scrolling towards “below the fold” and warn the user or perhaps take some action … interesting.
This excellent link taught us … element.scrollIntoView({block: ‘end’}); # scrolls into view to the bottom of element
This excellent link taught us … Setting up a timed Javascript functionality with codelines like … document.body.scrollTop = document.body.scrollTop + 200; … could get around the Drag and Drop API disallowing programmatical scrolling during dragging operations.

… to arrive at …


document.getElementById('mytable').tabIndex = -1;
document.getElementById('mytable').onkeydown = function(e) {
var charx = e.which || e.keyCode;
//document.title=('' + e.keyCode);
if (('' + e.keyCode) == '85') { // Undo

Colouring In Drag and Drop Mixed Platform Collaboration Tutorial

The urging within a lot of Responsive Web Design online advice is to use “proportional” units such as …

  • %
  • vw and vh

… as much as possible, and all that is true. But the “px” unit is still relevant on occasions, and even needed on occasions, and we’d like to explain this a little in terms of an approach we took, on top of the work of yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Undo and Redo Tutorial, where we tried to improve the sharing qualities of “colouring in of a clip art background” scenario (fairly obviously insulting to the child who’s done their best but the computer’s let them down), where precision is so important with the sharing, and the collaboration occurs between devices of vastly different platform and device dimensions. We started our …

  • the Responsive Web Design units are not as useful at the other “email recipient” end unless that “email recipient” end’s device dimensions (and/or perhaps platform) matches the originator’s device dimensions (and/or perhaps platform) … instead …
  • here is a case where the use of “px” units helps put the webpage HTML data on a “level playing field” for all, awaiting Responsive Web Design aspects still useful regarding the table cell dimensions (for example)

In other words, there is a place for “px” units, in this example, and others, and can be there sometimes not cruelling any Responsive Web Design critiques.

Also, today, we added to the original pen type style with several others

  • a click in the pink area allows a Google clip art image search webpage be displayed … and these …
  • being right clicked might show a Copy Image Address option which copies into the clipboard …
  • data suitable for pasting into the Image URL textbox we introduced yesterday

… whether that be an image data URL or perhaps even an absolute image URL, to use as the “canvas” (ie. palette) background image. In this scenario, if the default 99 (pixels across and down) is still happening we open a new window with an incarnation of the webpage for that setting being 200 (pixels across and down).

Colouring In Drag and Drop Mobile Tutorial

Yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Sharing Tutorial sharing and collaboration code for our latest Colouring In web application was tested on our MacBook Air laptop only. As you can imagine, that can mean that code working there is not always going to work the same way on mobile touch devices, but it was not, as it panned out for us, regarding the reason we thought it would be about. We thought …

  • it’s bound to be an issue with dragging event workings regarding mobile … but it took us quite some time to stop burying our head in the sand and, instead, “keeping it simple, Señor” (ie. the KISS principle, and yes, Señor is not a spelling mistake, thank you very much for your concern) … and testing another “dumber sounding” but panning out to be true, in this case …
  • issue was to do with table cell widths and heights for table cells with no content acts differently for mobile than non-mobile (effectively scrunching cells up)

… the trigger for us being that the “drop” event.target.id kept on showing up as “mytable”. That happened hours ago! We beavered away with x,y proportional co-ordinate calculations and eventually after all that not helping (for 2 maybe 3 hours), started applying a table cell border, which gave crazy results, and then it tweaked?! Sheeeeesssshhhhh!

Can you teach yourself the KISS principle? Maybe you get better over time. Another opinion can be great, though, with that alternative view, you hadn’t even thought of, often the result of such conversations.

Back to today, we …

Made sure table “tr” row elements were for a better defined (proportionate to table) width
<?php

for ($thisrow=1; $thisrow<=$across; $thisrow++) {
$cthisrow='0000000000' . $thisrow;
$rowsofar='<tr style="width:100%;" id=tr' . substr($cthisrow, -$iacross, $iacross) . '></tr>';

}
$newih=str_replace('</tbody>', $rowsofar . '</tbody>', $newih);

Made sure table “td” cell elements were proportional … initially, expressed in “viewport” (percentage style) dimension terms …
<style>

td.tdone {
width: 1vw;
height: 1vh;
}

</style>
… and if not the default number of cells across and down …

Colouring In Drag and Drop Sharing Tutorial

Colouring In Drag and Drop Sharing Tutorial

We’re hoping yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Settings Tutorial new Colouring In web application is seen as a creative’s tool. As such, you’re going to want to share and collaborate … some of you, that is?!

You’re going to want to hashtag … oops … we’re going to want to hashtag. Yes, there is lots of data to share, but it worries us even involving hashtagging, how much there is, underlying, regarding that table element acting a bit like a television’s pixels. How do you effectively share even a snapshot of that?

But the difference between us and the television is, at least for a lot of people’s creations, the table is likely to be untouched, so can’t we “nickname” these repeated table cell scenarios? If you just said “indeed”, we’d concur! Take a look at some global Javascript variables we thought might help


var defemail='';
var defsms='', snum=null, sparewes=null;
var prefixnickchar='.';
var prefixfor='<td class="tdone" id="';
var suffixnickchar='-';
var suffixfor='" class="tdone" style="text-align:center;" data-answer="1"></td>';

… and for those untouched cells you’re saving more than (because of encryption) the length difference between the “nickchars” above and their “fixfor” counterparts for each “boring” table cell encountered. And all this eases our mind somewhat, as a design, realized, on the way to the emailee or smsee this way

Colouring In Drag and Drop Settings Tutorial

Colouring In Drag and Drop Settings Tutorial

Onto the start for our Colouring In web application via yesterday’s Colouring In Canvas Clone of Numbers Guessing Game Tutorial we’re starting to enhance, on top of that “clone level” functionality, via two new settings with two approaches to the management of data, regarding, those being …

  • number of table cells across (that programmatically is made to be the same number of cells, as down) … we deal with via a get ? (or &) address line URL arrangement … whereas …
  • pen “width” can be 1 or 2 (where 2 colours in the 1+8=9 surrounding cells of a dragged over cell) … we deal with via a hashtag arrangement

Why the difference in approach? Let’s start with hashtag methodologies. This arrangement can leave everything about a webpage, in place, regarding the user actions on a webpage, while the Javascript can detect that change in …


location.hash

… dynamically. In other words some dragging canvas drawings with pen “width” 2 can be combined with some using pen “width” 1 in the same user creation.

But when the data management involves get ? (or &) address line URL arrangements, this involves navigation to a new incarnation of the webpage creation logic, effectively wiping the webpage slate clean. This is apt for the “number of table cells across” data item, because the HTML content of the table element is not just affected, but is totally structured, according to this user setting.

Lately, more and more, we’ve been hashtagging data to dynamically created “a” link “mailto:” email or “sms:” SMS communication body webpage URL links. An email link or SMS link, from the recipient’s point of view is a “brand new start” that can address either or both of these data conduit arrangements, we’re getting happier and happier to discover …

    … just as we’re curious about “the things that go wrong”, and not having them repeat! Same with pooches!

    Take our first to second draft PHP game (to the opera, would be preferable). We wondered why, occasionally, with the “first draft” it would hang. It took us a half day to realize, as you could yourself have tweaked to a lot quicker if you had followed the adage …


    Hanging issues mostly team up with code within a loop

    The situation, we’ve reasoned, is that we had that PHP $badlist variable store a comma separated list of planets with either zero moons or more than one moon randomly selected representing it. We’d assumed, yesterday, not that we’d put it in words, but in logic, that this list would not (have the same length or) be the same as a (new $goodlist variable) list of planets with either zero moons or selected while collecting the random list of Moon/Planet combinations … ie. we assumed in the list would be a Planet with only one of its Moons randomly selected … mistake!!! Better is …

    <?php

    $goodlist=',Mercury,Venus,';
    $badlist=',Mercury,Venus,';


    while (strlen($goodlist) == strlen($badlist)) {

    We’ve added the word experimental into today’s blog posting title, mainly because our first of two inspirational webpage sources (last modified on 23/02/2023) regarding somewhat alternative “Drag and Drop” functionalities told us, regarding the DataTransfer object informational “DataTransfer” webpage …

    Experimental: This is an experimental technology
    Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

    … but our testing of the methodologies on various platforms hasn’t totally failed yet on any of the several desktop and mobile platform scenarios we’ve tried. On mobile, we just held on for a sustained touch (down) to make it possible. So maybe the industry has caught up with the ideas? We’re hoping so, because “drag and drop” is a kind of natural thing online users think of to do, and people associate it with “getting things done” we reckon.

    Anyway, we relied on the great source code of the second of two inspirational webpages DataTransfer: setData() method, thanks …

    The DataTransfer.setData() method sets the drag operation’s drag data to the specified data and type. If data for the given type does not exist, it is added at the end of the drag data store, such that the last item in the types list will be the new type. If data for the given type already exists, the existing data is replaced in the same position. That is, the order of the types list is not changed when replacing data of the same type.

Colouring In Drag and Drop World Reveal Sharing Tutorial

When a lot of us think of games or quizzes, we think “level playing field”, at least at the start of a game. In other words, the way the game starts the players are faced with the same or similar conditions to play the game under. And so, onto the logic for the World Reveal game subsection of functionality of our Colouring In web application, as of yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop World Reveal Geography Tutorial, today, we’ve added in logic so that …

  • a World Reveal incarnation of the Colouring In web application can be shared via …
    1. email
    2. SMS

    … and …

  • the first ten (as a default, and can be changed via a ?qnum=55 style of argument or #qnum=67 style of hashtag) questions are the same for the originator as the recipient

Encryption wise the simplest to share is alpha data and here it is with this. Country ISO-2 character code sharing needs no delimitation, just for us, looping through two characters (also used, along with function orflag below to make the draggable element into a Country flag emoji) at a time!

Colouring In Drag and Drop World Reveal Game Tutorial

As of yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Text Placement Tutorial, as far as our Colouring In web application capabilities goes …

  • it has intelligence regarding a “pen” type emoji element being dragged over a table full of cells
  • it can handle background images
  • it can involve text
  • it can colour table cell background colours (and/or border part(s))

… and this is functionality allowing us to add a new “pen” drag type called “World Reveal” where a semi-transparent Mercator projection World Map image is underlayed beneath semi-transparent table cells, creating a “cloudy world effect”. The user is asked to reveal a country of choice to score in the game, those table cells dragged over becoming fully transparent, showing “uncloudy world” beneath …

If you think in terms of …


Annotation functionalities

… available to the user of our current interest, the Colouring In web application, up until today, we relied on user scribbling means to involve any “textual feeling” in this project.

But, today?! Well! That’s another kettle of fish! We’re happy to say …

We’re involving real text into the mix.

… regarding the ways you creatives out there want to express themselves.

And so, onto yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Animated Background Images Tutorial we have some new involvement of …

  • tr (table row) elements given a new id attribute arrangement and some new event onclick logic … and also …
  • tbody (table body) element used as the creator’s palette (as far as positioning goes, though, as we go to air, we’re still using the tbody for co-ordinate positioning (and we wanted svg+xml text background imagery at first) but now overlay span element text over the table)

Sad about the full involvement of tbody svg+xml background image text idea not happening, but we feel that we will return to this, on paper, satisfying, and cute, idea. We have successfully applied svg+xml text ideas to tailored cursors, but we do remember a struggle and size limitations?! The attempt is there in the code for another person to do better with, if they wish.

Here is some relevant new Javascript code …

Colouring In Drag and Drop Animated Background Images Tutorial

One image can a background image make.

More than one images can a moving picture make.

And that is why, after yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Multiple Background Image Tutorial, we turn our attention to a first …


animated slides

… presentation idea, now that we understand and can share multiple images (or slides).

This first incarnation just uses Javascript logic to simulate what an animated GIF can do. In other words, we have …

  • a set of images … presented via a …
  • delay … we just hardcode for 4 seconds to start with

… as with the table ondblclick (on double click) newly arranged …


document.getElementById('mytable').title+='Double click to toggle the display of an animated GIF presentation of your background images.';
document.getElementById('mytable').ondblclick=function(){ popupanimation(); };

… event logic calling …

Colouring In Drag and Drop Multiple Background Image Tutorial

The ability to add multiple background images in HTML and using CSS can be very useful. We’ve done this in the past, and knew the important CSS properties to fill in were …

… which should be given comma separated list values for each background-image set member.

Below, we drill down a bit …

  • background-image … comma separated list of data-URIs and/or image URLs (and perhaps, optionally, the one linear gradient prefixing opacity measure)
  • background-repeat … easy … no-repeat comma separated list
  • background-size … if one you might use contain but from there on, today we use a width percentage value and auto for the height component (eg. 33% auto)
  • background-position … top left, bottom right, top right, bottom left, center center, top center, bottom center, left center, right center … in rotation (and order is today’s thinking) … beyond 9 there will be overlaying (and maybe even before then, depending)

Colouring In Drag and Drop Keyboard Events Tutorial

Despite us having precedents to turn to regarding …


establishing a layer of keyboard onkeydown event logic for a non-textbox HTML element

… we’ve had to look up so many websites for advice, thanks, that it must have been that “day of discovery” you should persevere with, for reference points into the future.

Alas, little of it can be used on mobile platforms. Their setup precludes these keyboard independency possibilities we really like about non-mobile keyboard event functionality. It can set up a “whole new woooorrrrllllddd” for your web application designs!

What was the motivation for our interest? Well, we have a mouse with a mouse wheel, and it occurred to us how useful the wheel could be when dragging and some content is below the fold, and rather than lose the dragging, you can use the mouse wheel to navigate to those areas of the webpage, still dragging your draggable element, with our Colouring In web application.

And so, onto yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Mixed Platform Collaboration Tutorial

This excellent link taught us … When tabindex’s value is set to a negative number, its element can be programmatically focused via JavaScript.
This excellent link taught us … el.focus({preventScroll: true}); # can focus to element el without involving any programmatic scrolling
This excellent link taught us … Pondered … can i simulate mousewheel up or down with javascript … and our findings … no! But interesting.
This excellent link taught us … Mused on … Drag, drop and mousewheel? … and our findings … yes for physical mouse wheel usage (hence today’s interest) … but no, regarding Javascript logic. Again, very interesting.
This excellent link taught us … We didn’t follow through on it but … How to scroll the window automatically when mouse moves bottom of the page using jquery … intimates you could use jQuery code to detect user scrolling towards “below the fold” and warn the user or perhaps take some action … interesting.
This excellent link taught us … element.scrollIntoView({block: ‘end’}); # scrolls into view to the bottom of element
This excellent link taught us … Setting up a timed Javascript functionality with codelines like … document.body.scrollTop = document.body.scrollTop + 200; … could get around the Drag and Drop API disallowing programmatical scrolling during dragging operations.

… to arrive at …


document.getElementById('mytable').tabIndex = -1;
document.getElementById('mytable').onkeydown = function(e) {
var charx = e.which || e.keyCode;
//document.title=('' + e.keyCode);
if (('' + e.keyCode) == '85') { // Undo
document.getElementById('jsundo').click();

The urging within a lot of Responsive Web Design online advice is to use “proportional” units such as …

  • %
  • vw and vh

… as much as possible, and all that is true. But the “px” unit is still relevant on occasions, and even needed on occasions, and we’d like to explain this a little in terms of an approach we took, on top of the work of yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Undo and Redo Tutorial, where we tried to improve the sharing qualities of “colouring in of a clip art background” scenario (fairly obviously insulting to the child who’s done their best but the computer’s let them down), where precision is so important with the sharing, and the collaboration occurs between devices of vastly different platform and device dimensions. We started our …

  • the Responsive Web Design units are not as useful at the other “email recipient” end unless that “email recipient” end’s device dimensions (and/or perhaps platform) matches the originator’s device dimensions (and/or perhaps platform) … instead …
  • here is a case where the use of “px” units helps put the webpage HTML data on a “level playing field” for all, awaiting Responsive Web Design aspects still useful regarding the table cell dimensions (for example)

In other words, there is a place for “px” units, in this example, and others, and can be there sometimes not cruelling any Responsive Web Design critiques.

Also, today, we added to the original pen type style with several others

Lots of issues came up for consideration, here, as you might expect. Much of that was to do with the mobile platform web application user experience using the Colouring In web application.

In this scenario, if the default 99 (pixels across and down) is still happening we open a new window with an incarnation of the webpage for that setting being 200 (pixels across and down).

Colouring In Drag and Drop Mobile Tutorial

Yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Sharing Tutorial sharing and collaboration code for our latest Colouring In web application was tested on our MacBook Air laptop only. As you can imagine, that can mean that code working there is not always going to work the same way on mobile touch devices, but it was not, as it panned out for us, regarding the reason we thought it would be about. We thought …

  • it’s bound to be an issue with dragging event workings regarding mobile … but it took us quite some time to stop burying our head in the sand and, instead, “keeping it simple, Señor” (ie. the KISS principle, and yes, Señor is not a spelling mistake, thank you very much for your concern) … and testing another “dumber sounding” but panning out to be true, in this case …
  • issue was to do with table cell widths and heights for table cells with no content acts differently for mobile than non-mobile (effectively scrunching cells up)

… the trigger for us being that the “drop” event.target.id kept on showing up as “mytable”. That happened hours ago! We beavered away with x,y proportional co-ordinate calculations and eventually after all that not helping (for 2 maybe 3 hours), started applying a table cell border, which gave crazy results, and then it tweaked?! Sheeeeesssshhhhh!

Can you teach yourself the KISS principle? Maybe you get better over time. Another opinion can be great, though, with that alternative view, you hadn’t even thought of, often the result of such conversations.

Back to today, we …

Made sure table “tr” row elements were for a better defined (proportionate to table) width
<?php

for ($thisrow=1; $thisrow<=$across; $thisrow++) {
$cthisrow='0000000000' . $thisrow;

Colouring In Drag and Drop Sharing Tutorial

Colouring In Drag and Drop Sharing Tutorial

We’re hoping yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Settings Tutorial new Colouring In web application is seen as a creative’s tool. As such, you’re going to want to share and collaborate … some of you, that is?!

You’re going to want to hashtag … oops … we’re going to want to hashtag. Yes, there is lots of data to share, but it worries us even involving hashtagging, how much there is, underlying, regarding that table element acting a bit like a television’s pixels. How do you effectively share even a snapshot of that?

But the difference between us and the television is, at least for a lot of people’s creations, the table is likely to be untouched, so can’t we “nickname” these repeated table cell scenarios? If you just said “indeed”, we’d concur! Take a look at some global Javascript variables we thought might help


var defemail='';
var defsms='', snum=null, sparewes=null;
var prefixnickchar='.';
var prefixfor='<td class="tdone" id="';
var suffixnickchar='-';
var suffixfor='" class="tdone" style="text-align:center;" data-answer="1"></td>';

… and for those untouched cells you’re saving more than (because of encryption) the length difference between the “nickchars” above and their “fixfor” counterparts for each “boring” table cell encountered. And all this eases our mind somewhat, as a design, realized, on the way to the emailee or smsee this way

Colouring In Drag and Drop Settings Tutorial

Onto the start for our Colouring In web application via yesterday’s Colouring In Canvas Clone of Numbers Guessing Game Tutorial we’re starting to enhance, on top of that “clone level” functionality, via two new settings with two approaches to the management of data, regarding, those being …

  • number of table cells across (that programmatically is made to be the same number of cells, as down) … we deal with via a get ? (or &) address line URL arrangement … whereas …
  • pen “width” can be 1 or 2 (where 2 colours in the 1+8=9 surrounding cells of a dragged over cell) … we deal with via a hashtag arrangement

Why the difference in approach? Let’s start with hashtag methodologies. This arrangement can leave everything about a webpage, in place, regarding the user actions on a webpage, while the Javascript can detect that change in …


location.hash

… dynamically. In other words some dragging canvas drawings with pen “width” 2 can be combined with some using pen “width” 1 in the same user creation.

But when the data management involves get ? (or &) address line URL arrangements, this involves navigation to a new incarnation of the webpage creation logic, effectively wiping the webpage slate clean. This is apt for the “number of table cells across” data item, because the HTML content of the table element is not just affected, but is totally structured, according to this user setting.

Lately, more and more, we’ve been hashtagging data to dynamically created “a” link “mailto:” email or “sms:” SMS communication body webpage URL links. An email link or SMS link, from the recipient’s point of view is a “brand new start” that can address either or both of these data conduit arrangements, we’re getting happier and happier to discover …

    On your smaller devices we found the Numbers Guessing Game a bit hard to use. As such, we researched and played around with “drag and drop” cursor ideas unsuccessfully to end up, instead, not thinking about the cursor (albeit, we find that idea cuter) but rather styling the target table cell’s background colour and informing the user of that up at the top button wording in our changed second draft PHP game, which leans on our changed experimental_drag_and_drop.htm HTML and Javascript and CSS helper

    We fully concur with any adage that goes …

    You learn most from your mistakes

    … just as we’re curious about “the things that go wrong”, and not having them repeat! Same with pooches!

    Take our first to second draft PHP game (to the opera, would be preferable). We wondered why, occasionally, with the “first draft” it would hang. It took us a half day to realize, as you could yourself have tweaked to a lot quicker if you had followed the adage …


    Hanging issues mostly team up with code within a loop

    The situation, we’ve reasoned, is that we had that PHP $badlist variable store a comma separated list of planets with either zero moons or more than one moon randomly selected representing it. We’d assumed, yesterday, not that we’d put it in words, but in logic, that this list would not (have the same length or) be the same as a (new $goodlist variable) list of planets with either zero moons or selected while collecting the random list of Moon/Planet combinations … ie. we assumed in the list would be a Planet with only one of its Moons randomly selected … mistake!!! Better is …

    <?php

    $goodlist=',Mercury,Venus,';
    $badlist=',Mercury,Venus,';


    while (strlen($goodlist) == strlen($badlist)) {
    $goodlist=',Mercury,Venus,';

    The experimental drag and drop theme continues on today, after Experimental Drag and Drop Game Tutorial‘s debut game application, with a Wikipedia inspired “Australian Street Type” game today.

    It can be interesting turning a “concept” (or even a “proof of concept” web application) into an, on the side, “game” web application, and that way, learn what’s possible via user action.

    Drop Zone

    Can “inheritance” be harnessed to make it work for some complexity of nested HTML elements inside that “Drop Zone” element when the document.body’s onload event happens? We wondered whether a Brady Bunch style 3×3 table could be the go? And whether the nine cells could have a “score” associated with them, and that set of scores be changing over time to make the game more challenging and interesting? Well …

    Yes

    … is the answer regarding making a game out of a proof of concept with our experimental_drag_and_drop.html HTML and Javascript and CSS game web application (also shown below) using these techniques, about which we think some of you readers will be interested?!

    Experimental Drag and Drop Primer Tutorial

    We’ve added the word experimental into today’s blog posting title, mainly because our first of two inspirational webpage sources (last modified on 23/02/2023) regarding somewhat alternative “Drag and Drop” functionalities told us, regarding the DataTransfer object informational “DataTransfer” webpage …

    Experimental: This is an experimental technology
    Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

    … but our testing of the methodologies on various platforms hasn’t totally failed yet on any of the several desktop and mobile platform scenarios we’ve tried. On mobile, we just held on for a sustained touch (down) to make it possible. So maybe the industry has caught up with the ideas? We’re hoping so, because “drag and drop” is a kind of natural thing online users think of to do, and people associate it with “getting things done” we reckon.

    Anyway, we relied on the great source code of the second of two inspirational webpages DataTransfer: setData() method, thanks …

    The DataTransfer.setData() method sets the drag operation’s drag data to the specified data and type. If data for the given type does not exist, it is added at the end of the drag data store, such that the last item in the types list will be the new type. If data for the given type already exists, the existing data is replaced in the same position. That is, the order of the types list is not changed when replacing data of the same type.

Colouring In Drag and Drop World Reveal Game Tutorial

As of yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Text Placement Tutorial, as far as our Colouring In web application capabilities goes …

  • it has intelligence regarding a “pen” type emoji element being dragged over a table full of cells
  • it can handle background images
  • it can involve text
  • it can colour table cell background colours (and/or border part(s))

… and this is functionality allowing us to add a new “pen” drag type called “World Reveal” where a semi-transparent Mercator projection World Map image is underlayed beneath semi-transparent table cells, creating a “cloudy world effect”. The user is asked to reveal a country of choice to score in the game, those table cells dragged over becoming fully transparent, showing “uncloudy world” beneath …

If you think in terms of …


Annotation functionalities

… available to the user of our current interest, the Colouring In web application, up until today, we relied on user scribbling means to involve any “textual feeling” in this project.

But, today?! Well! That’s another kettle of fish! We’re happy to say …

We’re involving real text into the mix.

… regarding the ways you creatives out there want to express themselves.

And so, onto yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Animated Background Images Tutorial we have some new involvement of …

  • tr (table row) elements given a new id attribute arrangement and some new event onclick logic … and also …
  • tbody (table body) element used as the creator’s palette (as far as positioning goes, though, as we go to air, we’re still using the tbody for co-ordinate positioning (and we wanted svg+xml text background imagery at first) but now overlay span element text over the table)

Sad about the full involvement of tbody svg+xml background image text idea not happening, but we feel that we will return to this, on paper, satisfying, and cute, idea. We have successfully applied svg+xml text ideas to tailored cursors, but we do remember a struggle and size limitations?! The attempt is there in the code for another person to do better with, if they wish.

Colouring In Drag and Drop Animated Background Images Tutorial

One image can a background image make.

More than one images can a moving picture make.

And that is why, after yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Multiple Background Image Tutorial, we turn our attention to a first …


animated slides

… presentation idea, now that we understand and can share multiple images (or slides).

This first incarnation just uses Javascript logic to simulate what an animated GIF can do. In other words, we have …

  • a set of images … presented via a …
  • delay … we just hardcode for 4 seconds to start with

… as with the table ondblclick (on double click) newly arranged …


document.getElementById('mytable').title+='Double click to toggle the display of an animated GIF presentation of your background images.';
document.getElementById('mytable').ondblclick=function(){ popupanimation(); };

… event logic calling …


var usual=true, imans=[], iusual=0, kdelay=4000;

function popupanimation() {
var splitthis='';
if (usual && document.getElementById('xdstyle').innerHTML == '' && ('' + document.getElementById('dstyle').innerHTML).toLowerCase().indexOf('url(') != -1) {
document.getElementById('xdstyle').innerHTML=encodeURIComponent(document.getElementById('dstyle').innerHTML);
splitthis+=document.getElementById('dstyle').innerHTML;
}
if (document.getElementById('ddstyle')) {

if (splitthis != '') {
imans=splitthis.replace(/URL\(/g, 'url(').split('url(');
document.getElementById('dstyle').innerHTML='';
if (document.getElementById('ddstyle')) {
document.getElementById('ddstyle').innerHTML='';

Colouring In Drag and Drop Multiple Background Image Tutorial

The ability to add multiple background images in HTML and using CSS can be very useful. We’ve done this in the past, and knew the important CSS properties to fill in were …

… which should be given comma separated list values for each background-image set member.

Below, we drill down a bit …

  • background-image … comma separated list of data-URIs and/or image URLs (and perhaps, optionally, the one linear gradient prefixing opacity measure)
  • background-repeat … easy … no-repeat comma separated list
  • background-size … if one you might use contain but from there on, today we use a width percentage value and auto for the height component (eg. 33% auto)
  • background-position … top left, bottom right, top right, bottom left, center center, top center, bottom center, left center, right center … in rotation (and order is today’s thinking) … beyond 9 there will be overlaying (and maybe even before then, depending)

Colouring In Drag and Drop Keyboard Events Tutorial

Despite us having precedents to turn to regarding …


establishing a layer of keyboard onkeydown event logic for a non-textbox HTML element

… we’ve had to look up so many websites for advice, thanks, that it must have been that “day of discovery” you should persevere with, for reference points into the future.

Alas, little of it can be used on mobile platforms. Their setup precludes these keyboard independency possibilities we really like about non-mobile keyboard event functionality. It can set up a “whole new woooorrrrllllddd” for your web application designs!

What was the motivation for our interest? Well, we have a mouse with a mouse wheel, and it occurred to us how useful the wheel could be when dragging and some content is below the fold, and rather than lose the dragging, you can use the mouse wheel to navigate to those areas of the webpage, still dragging your draggable element, with our Colouring In web application.

And so, onto yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Mixed Platform Collaboration Tutorial

This excellent link taught us … When tabindex’s value is set to a negative number, its element can be programmatically focused via JavaScript.
This excellent link taught us … el.focus({preventScroll: true}); # can focus to element el without involving any programmatic scrolling
This excellent link taught us … Pondered … can i simulate mousewheel up or down with javascript … and our findings … no! But interesting.
This excellent link taught us … Mused on … Drag, drop and mousewheel? … and our findings … yes for physical mouse wheel usage (hence today’s interest) … but no, regarding Javascript logic. Again, very interesting.
This excellent link taught us … We didn’t follow through on it but … How to scroll the window automatically when mouse moves bottom of the page using jquery … intimates you could use jQuery code to detect user scrolling towards “below the fold” and warn the user or perhaps take some action … interesting.
This excellent link taught us … element.scrollIntoView({block: ‘end’}); # scrolls into view to the bottom of element
This excellent link taught us … Setting up a timed Javascript functionality with codelines like … document.body.scrollTop = document.body.scrollTop + 200; … could get around the Drag and Drop API disallowing programmatical scrolling during dragging operations.

… to arrive at …


document.getElementById('mytable').tabIndex = -1;
document.getElementById('mytable').onkeydown = function(e) {
var charx = e.which || e.keyCode;
//document.title=('' + e.keyCode);
if (('' + e.keyCode) == '85') { // Undo
document.getElementById('jsundo').click();

document.body.dispatchEvent(ourevt);
}

if (!gyl) {
document.body.scrollTop += igyl; // eval(1 + eval('' + document.body.scrollTop));
igyl=0;
}
} else if (('' + e.keyCode) == '68') { // Down
igyl=20;
if (!gyl) {
document.body.scrollTop += igyl; // eval(1 + eval('' + document.body.scrollTop));
igyl=0;
}
} else if (('' + e.keyCode) == '65') { // Across is A

Colouring In Drag and Drop Mixed Platform Collaboration Tutorial

The urging within a lot of Responsive Web Design online advice is to use “proportional” units such as …

  • %
  • vw and vh

… as much as possible, and all that is true. But the “px” unit is still relevant on occasions, and even needed on occasions, and we’d like to explain this a little in terms of an approach we took, on top of the work of yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Undo and Redo Tutorial, where we tried to improve the sharing qualities of “colouring in of a clip art background” scenario (fairly obviously insulting to the child who’s done their best but the computer’s let them down), where precision is so important with the sharing, and the collaboration occurs between devices of vastly different platform and device dimensions. We started our …

  • the Responsive Web Design units are not as useful at the other “email recipient” end unless that “email recipient” end’s device dimensions (and/or perhaps platform) matches the originator’s device dimensions (and/or perhaps platform) … instead …
  • here is a case where the use of “px” units helps put the webpage HTML data on a “level playing field” for all, awaiting Responsive Web Design aspects still useful regarding the table cell dimensions (for example)

In other words, there is a place for “px” units, in this example, and others, and can be there sometimes not cruelling any Responsive Web Design critiques.

Also, today, we added to the original pen type style with several others

    … functionality … and …
  • a click in the pink area allows a Google clip art image search webpage be displayed … and these …
  • being right clicked might show a Copy Image Address option which copies into the clipboard …
  • data suitable for pasting into the Image URL textbox we introduced yesterday

… whether that be an image data URL or perhaps even an absolute image URL, to use as the “canvas” (ie. palette) background image. In this scenario, if the default 99 (pixels across and down) is still happening we open a new window with an incarnation of the webpage for that setting being 200 (pixels across and down).

Colouring In Drag and Drop Mobile Tutorial

Yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Sharing Tutorial sharing and collaboration code for our latest Colouring In web application was tested on our MacBook Air laptop only. As you can imagine, that can mean that code working there is not always going to work the same way on mobile touch devices, but it was not, as it panned out for us, regarding the reason we thought it would be about. We thought …

  • it’s bound to be an issue with dragging event workings regarding mobile … but it took us quite some time to stop burying our head in the sand and, instead, “keeping it simple, Señor” (ie. the KISS principle, and yes, Señor is not a spelling mistake, thank you very much for your concern) … and testing another “dumber sounding” but panning out to be true, in this case …
  • issue was to do with table cell widths and heights for table cells with no content acts differently for mobile than non-mobile (effectively scrunching cells up)

… the trigger for us being that the “drop” event.target.id kept on showing up as “mytable”. That happened hours ago! We beavered away with x,y proportional co-ordinate calculations and eventually after all that not helping (for 2 maybe 3 hours), started applying a table cell border, which gave crazy results, and then it tweaked?! Sheeeeesssshhhhh!

Can you teach yourself the KISS principle? Maybe you get better over time. Another opinion can be great, though, with that alternative view, you hadn’t even thought of, often the result of such conversations.

Back to today, we …

Made sure table “tr” row elements were for a better defined (proportionate to table) width
<?php

for ($thisrow=1; $thisrow<=$across; $thisrow++) {
$cthisrow='0000000000' . $thisrow;
$rowsofar='<tr style="width:100%;" id=tr' . substr($cthisrow, -$iacross, $iacross) . '></tr>';

}
$newih=str_replace('</tbody>', $rowsofar . '</tbody>', $newih);
}

Made sure table “td” cell elements were proportional … initially, expressed in “viewport” (percentage style) dimension terms …
<style>

td.tdone {
width: 1vw;
height: 1vh;
}

</style>
… and if not the default number of cells across and down …

Colouring In Drag and Drop Sharing Tutorial

Colouring In Drag and Drop Sharing Tutorial

We’re hoping yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Settings Tutorial new Colouring In web application is seen as a creative’s tool. As such, you’re going to want to share and collaborate … some of you, that is?!

You’re going to want to hashtag … oops … we’re going to want to hashtag. Yes, there is lots of data to share, but it worries us even involving hashtagging, how much there is, underlying, regarding that table element acting a bit like a television’s pixels. How do you effectively share even a snapshot of that?

But the difference between us and the television is, at least for a lot of people’s creations, the table is likely to be untouched, so can’t we “nickname” these repeated table cell scenarios? If you just said “indeed”, we’d concur! Take a look at some global Javascript variables we thought might help


var defemail='';
var defsms='', snum=null, sparewes=null;
var prefixnickchar='.';
var prefixfor='<td class="tdone" id="';
var suffixnickchar='-';
var suffixfor='" class="tdone" style="text-align:center;" data-answer="1"></td>';

… and for those untouched cells you’re saving more than (because of encryption) the length difference between the “nickchars” above and their “fixfor” counterparts for each “boring” table cell encountered. And all this eases our mind somewhat, as a design, realized, on the way to the emailee or smsee this way

Colouring In Drag and Drop Settings Tutorial

Colouring In Drag and Drop Settings Tutorial

Onto the start for our Colouring In web application via yesterday’s Colouring In Canvas Clone of Numbers Guessing Game Tutorial we’re starting to enhance, on top of that “clone level” functionality, via two new settings with two approaches to the management of data, regarding, those being …

  • number of table cells across (that programmatically is made to be the same number of cells, as down) … we deal with via a get ? (or &) address line URL arrangement … whereas …
  • pen “width” can be 1 or 2 (where 2 colours in the 1+8=9 surrounding cells of a dragged over cell) … we deal with via a hashtag arrangement

Why the difference in approach? Let’s start with hashtag methodologies. This arrangement can leave everything about a webpage, in place, regarding the user actions on a webpage, while the Javascript can detect that change in …


location.hash

… dynamically. In other words some dragging canvas drawings with pen “width” 2 can be combined with some using pen “width” 1 in the same user creation.

But when the data management involves get ? (or &) address line URL arrangements, this involves navigation to a new incarnation of the webpage creation logic, effectively wiping the webpage slate clean. This is apt for the “number of table cells across” data item, because the HTML content of the table element is not just affected, but is totally structured, according to this user setting.

Lately, more and more, we’ve been hashtagging data to dynamically created “a” link “mailto:” email or “sms:” SMS communication body webpage URL links. An email link or SMS link, from the recipient’s point of view is a “brand new start” that can address either or both of these data conduit arrangements, we’re getting happier and happier to discover …

    … just as we’re curious about “the things that go wrong”, and not having them repeat! Same with pooches!

    Take our first to second draft PHP game (to the opera, would be preferable). We wondered why, occasionally, with the “first draft” it would hang. It took us a half day to realize, as you could yourself have tweaked to a lot quicker if you had followed the adage …


    Hanging issues mostly team up with code within a loop

    The situation, we’ve reasoned, is that we had that PHP $badlist variable store a comma separated list of planets with either zero moons or more than one moon randomly selected representing it. We’d assumed, yesterday, not that we’d put it in words, but in logic, that this list would not (have the same length or) be the same as a (new $goodlist variable) list of planets with either zero moons or selected while collecting the random list of Moon/Planet combinations … ie. we assumed in the list would be a Planet with only one of its Moons randomly selected … mistake!!! Better is …

    <?php

    $goodlist=',Mercury,Venus,';
    $badlist=',Mercury,Venus,';


    while (strlen($goodlist) == strlen($badlist)) {

    Experimental Drag and Drop Primer Tutorial

    We’ve added the word experimental into today’s blog posting title, mainly because our first of two inspirational webpage sources (last modified on 23/02/2023) regarding somewhat alternative “Drag and Drop” functionalities told us, regarding the DataTransfer object informational “DataTransfer” webpage …

    Experimental: This is an experimental technology
    Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

    … but our testing of the methodologies on various platforms hasn’t totally failed yet on any of the several desktop and mobile platform scenarios we’ve tried. On mobile, we just held on for a sustained touch (down) to make it possible. So maybe the industry has caught up with the ideas? We’re hoping so, because “drag and drop” is a kind of natural thing online users think of to do, and people associate it with “getting things done” we reckon.

    Anyway, we relied on the great source code of the second of two inspirational webpages DataTransfer: setData() method, thanks …

    The DataTransfer.setData() method sets the drag operation’s drag data to the specified data and type. If data for the given type does not exist, it is added at the end of the drag data store, such that the last item in the types list will be the new type. If data for the given type already exists, the existing data is replaced in the same position. That is, the order of the types list is not changed when replacing data of the same type.

Colouring In Drag and Drop Text Placement Tutorial

If you think in terms of …


Annotation functionalities

… available to the user of our current interest, the Colouring In web application, up until today, we relied on user scribbling means to involve any “textual feeling” in this project.

But, today?! Well! That’s another kettle of fish! We’re happy to say …

We’re involving real text into the mix.

… regarding the ways you creatives out there want to express themselves.

And so, onto yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Animated Background Images Tutorial we have some new involvement of …

  • tr (table row) elements given a new id attribute arrangement and some new event onclick logic … and also …
  • tbody (table body) element used as the creator’s palette (as far as positioning goes, though, as we go to air, we’re still using the tbody for co-ordinate positioning (and we wanted svg+xml text background imagery at first) but now overlay span element text over the table)

Sad about the full involvement of tbody svg+xml background image text idea not happening, but we feel that we will return to this, on paper, satisfying, and cute, idea. We have successfully applied svg+xml text ideas to tailored cursors, but we do remember a struggle and size limitations?! The attempt is there in the code for another person to do better with, if they wish.

Here is some relevant new Javascript code …

Colouring In Drag and Drop Animated Background Images Tutorial

One image can a background image make.

More than one images can a moving picture make.

And that is why, after yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Multiple Background Image Tutorial, we turn our attention to a first …


animated slides

… presentation idea, now that we understand and can share multiple images (or slides).

This first incarnation just uses Javascript logic to simulate what an animated GIF can do. In other words, we have …

  • a set of images … presented via a …
  • delay … we just hardcode for 4 seconds to start with

… as with the table ondblclick (on double click) newly arranged …


document.getElementById('mytable').title+='Double click to toggle the display of an animated GIF presentation of your background images.';
document.getElementById('mytable').ondblclick=function(){ popupanimation(); };

… event logic calling …

document.getElementById('xdstyle').innerHTML=encodeURIComponent(document.getElementById('dstyle').innerHTML);

Colouring In Drag and Drop Multiple Background Image Tutorial

The ability to add multiple background images in HTML and using CSS can be very useful. We’ve done this in the past, and knew the important CSS properties to fill in were …

… which should be given comma separated list values for each background-image set member.

Below, we drill down a bit …

  • background-image … comma separated list of data-URIs and/or image URLs (and perhaps, optionally, the one linear gradient prefixing opacity measure)
  • background-repeat … easy … no-repeat comma separated list
  • background-size … if one you might use contain but from there on, today we use a width percentage value and auto for the height component (eg. 33% auto)
  • background-position … top left, bottom right, top right, bottom left, center center, top center, bottom center, left center, right center … in rotation (and order is today’s thinking) … beyond 9 there will be overlaying (and maybe even before then, depending)

… accessed via the PHP parent caller’s “planted” new Javascript function

<?php

$templategame=str_replace('</sc' . 'ript>', "\n" . " function getduresult(inr) { document.getElementById('result').innerHTML=inr; onecheck(); return inr; } " . "\n" . '</sc' . 'ript>', $templategame);

?>

… which is now looked out for by the Client Browsing inhouse tool we often turn to …


if (('' + typeof parent.getduresult) == 'function') {
parent.document.getElementById('result').innerHTML=parent.getduresult(evt.target.result.replace('application/octet-stream', tomt).replace('application/octet-stream', tomt).replace('data:;', 'data:' + mfile.type + ';').replace('data:application/octet-stream;', 'data:' + tomt + ';'));
} else {

Colouring In Drag and Drop Keyboard Events Tutorial

Despite us having precedents to turn to regarding …


establishing a layer of keyboard onkeydown event logic for a non-textbox HTML element

… we’ve had to look up so many websites for advice, thanks, that it must have been that “day of discovery” you should persevere with, for reference points into the future.

Alas, little of it can be used on mobile platforms. Their setup precludes these keyboard independency possibilities we really like about non-mobile keyboard event functionality. It can set up a “whole new woooorrrrllllddd” for your web application designs!

What was the motivation for our interest? Well, we have a mouse with a mouse wheel, and it occurred to us how useful the wheel could be when dragging and some content is below the fold, and rather than lose the dragging, you can use the mouse wheel to navigate to those areas of the webpage, still dragging your draggable element, with our Colouring In web application.

And so, onto yesterday’s Colouring In Drag and Drop Mixed Platform Collaboration Tutorial

This excellent link taught us … When tabindex’s value is set to a negative number, its element can be programmatically focused via JavaScript.
This excellent link taught us … el.focus({preventScroll: true}); # can focus to element el without involving any programmatic scrolling
This excellent link taught us … Pondered … can i simulate mousewheel up or down with javascript … and our findings … no! But interesting.
This excellent link taught us … Mused on … Drag, drop and mousewheel? … and our findings … yes for physical mouse wheel usage (hence today’s interest) … but no, regarding Javascript logic. Again, very interesting.
This excellent link taught us … We didn’t follow through on it but … How to scroll the window automatically when mouse moves bottom of the page using jquery … intimates you could use jQuery code to detect user scrolling towards “below the fold” and warn the user or perhaps take some action … interesting.
This excellent link taught us … element.scrollIntoView({block: ‘end’}); # scrolls into view to the bottom of element
This excellent link taught us … Setting up a timed Javascript functionality with codelines like … document.body.scrollTop = document.body.scrollTop + 200; … could get around the Drag and Drop API disallowing programmatical scrolling during dragging operations.

… to arrive at …
