The events mouseover and mouseout are fired when the mouse enters/leaves the element where the event handlers are registered, and any nested elements which do not handle these events (because of event bubbling ). The events mouseenter and mouseleave are fired only when the mouse enters/leaves the specified element. Nested elements do not come into play. This following is a test page. You need Firebug to view the console output. Or use the JavaScript Executor bookmarklet. If none of these are available, an alert will popup (but you won't be able to fully test with alert.). <!DOCTYPE HTML> <html> <head> <title>jQu... For the above test page, when you move the mouse through both the outer and inner areas of the mouseover/mouseout rectangle, the output is...

When you run automated Android tests with Eclipse or from the command line, you get text output, which isn't good for reporting purposes. If you run a large set of test cases with automated build, the text report isn't very helpful. Fortunately, Android CTS generates test reports in XML with accompanying XSL to make it look nice in a browser. To run your own tests with Android CTS: Download Android CTS Make a new directory MyRepository under android-cts , alongside the existing repository directory. Copy host_config.xml from repository to MyRepository Create directory plans under MyRepository , add a test plan ( MyTests.xml ): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <TestPla... Create directory testcases under MyRepository . Copy TestDeviceSetup.apk from repository/testcases to MyRepository/testcases Under MyRepository/testcases , create a test...

If CSS3 border-image is properly supported, making a rounded corner box is very easy. You just need a round corner image like this: The following markup: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" ... would render like this (try it in Firefox 3.5 and Google Chrome): However, IE as of version 8.0 does not support border-image . So until border-image is reliably supported in all major browsers, we still have to rely on tried and true tricks to make it work. In general, I found three general categories of tricks to make rounded corners: Good old tables. This trick creates a table of 9 cells and uses the 8 cells on the perimeter to render the borders and rounded corners. The central cell is used for...

cURL is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax. The main purpose and use for cURL is to automate unattended file transfers or sequences of operations. It's really easy to see HTTP headers with curl: C:\>curl --head http://www.google.com HTTP/1.0 ... or, headers and page together (dump headers to stdout): $ curl --dump-header - http://www.google.com HTTP/...

It seems that the key to aligning a checkbox with its label lies in the line-height property of the label. This simple HTML snippet aligns well: <!DOCTYPE HTML> <html> <head> <style typ... which is rendered like this: Change the font size of the label to 12px throws off the alignment: label.checkbox { font-size: 12px; di... In case 1, the height of the checkbox is 13px with 3px top and bottom margin, for a total of 19px , which is exactly the height of the label div. As can be seen from Firebug : Checkbox layout Label layout In case 2, the height of the label div shrinks to 15px , while the height of the checkbox remains the same: Checkbox layout Label layout And...

Many techniques for making rounded corners do not work well when the element being rounded is displayed on a background with a different color (or multiple colors). Example 1: Nifty Cube with JavaScript <html> <head> <base href="http://www.html.i... Example 2: modx Simple Rounded Corner Box <html> <head> <title>Round Corner</title> ... Example 3: CSS3 (does not work in IE) <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" ... Example 4: This is one that actually works ! The nifty corner technique can be tweaked to be background friendly, although the JavaScript version didn't work for some reason. <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" ...
