PaperArt100 in The Beauty of Paper Art

The times when paper was considered to be the primary medium for artistic expression is long gone. Many writers and designers use digital media to improvise and develop their ideas. However, there is something particuliar in this “physical” canvas — something that keeps us getting back to paper when we want to brainstorm ideas in a notebook, doodle around in a sketchbook, collect inspiration in a scrapbook or just draw some sketches for the next project.

In fact, paper is even more powerful than that. It is a very flexible medium. You can use it paper only for giving your ideas and feelings forms, but also as an expressive medium for creative artworks formed out of paper.

I always used Dreamweaver when it was made by Macromedia, but didn’t like the way it was heading initially when Adobe got their hands on it.

Simple example of MVC (Model View Controller) design pattern for abstraction

Introduction

Model-view-controller (MVC) is a pattern used to isolate business logic from the user interface. Using MVC, the Model represents the information (the data) of the application and the business rules used to manipulate the data, the View corresponds to elements of the user interface such as text, checkbox items, and so forth, and the Controller manages details involving the communication between the model and view. The controller handles user actions such as keystrokes and mouse movements and pipes them into the model or view as required.

  • jQuery.noConflict( [ removeAll ] )

    removeAllA Boolean indicating whether to remove all jQuery variables from the global scope (including jQuery itself).

Many JavaScript libraries use $ as a function or variable name, just as jQuery does. In jQuery’s case, $ is just an alias for jQuery, so all functionality is available without using $. If we need to use another JavaScript library alongside jQuery, we can return control of $ back to the other library with a call to $.noConflict():

<script type="text/javascript" src="other_lib.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
  $.noConflict();
  // Code that uses other library's $ can follow here.
</script>

In the last weeks I frequently received a question about how to use CSS3 border-radiusproperty to draw HTML elements with rounded corners in Internet Explorer. How you know CSS3 border-radius property is natively supported in Safari, Firefox and Chrome but for some mysterious reason this property is not supported in Internet Explorer.

So to draw rounded corners in IE you have to use some trick, for example using CSS classes with a background image (take a look at this post).

The simpler and quick solution I know to draw rounded corners in every browser is to use a mix of CSS3 and JavaScript. CurvyCorners is a free JavaScript library for creating gorgeous rounded corners for HTML elements. The final result looks like this:
