My Javascript (non-AJAX) Progress Bar Class : jsProgressBarHandler, now with Ajax!

Just to inform everyone that jsProgressBarHandler now has a second example where 5 Ajax calls are made and the progress bar is updated accordingly. Nothing spectacular imo as none of the jsProgressBarHandler source was changed (the progress bar still is no Ajax at all), only helping out Chris who asked for a likewise example 😉 […]

My Bridged Gap – flashLightBoxInjector … not limited to Flash you know

After having read a question over at the Lightbox forums where user npaust wanted to start Lightbox from a dropdown (a select-element that is), I’ve set up a little demo where this alternative usage of flashLightBoxInjector is demonstrated. Above that I’ve knocked a small bug out of flashLightBoxInjector bumping it to version 1.1.

My Javascript (non-AJAX) Progress Bar Class : jsProgressBarHandler

Don’t you just hate it when people wrongly label something as AJAX? A fine example of this is the – so called – AJAX Progress Bar. Above that the javascript could … well … let’s say “a rewrite needs to be done” popped up in my head, resulting in jsProgressBarHandler, a Prototype.js class to dynamically […]

My Code Snippet : Automatically start Lightbox on page load (autoFireLightbox)

Ever wanted to automatically start Lightbox so that it shows an image immediately after the page has loaded? It’s possible!

Although the code is OK, it requires editing Lightbox.js, which will of course break when a new version is released […]

My delay – bramus_classeslist is dead, long live bramus_cssextras!

Just an update to tell you that I won’t make it to posting bramus_classeslist online by the end of the month, as I promised, since bramus_classeslist exist no more. Wait, there’s some good news too: bramus_classeslist has changed names to bramus_cssextras as its functionality has been extended to supporting the setting of id attributes on […]

My TinyMCE Classes Plugin : bramus_classeslist : The missing (visual) link between the front- and backend

When writing a backend for a site combined with TinyMCE I’ve always found it a big hassle to visually link the content of the editor with the content of the actual site. Yeah yeah, there exists something like a content_css setting but that’s not really it as the options are limited. Fed up with this […]

My note to myself : Prototype.js vs. JSON.js : 1 – 0 (or JSON.js considered evil)

Spent 1.5 hours today fighting with them javascript libraries after having updated a site from Prototype.js pre 1.5.0 tot the latest version (1.5.1 at the time of writing) as an update of the used script.aculo.us to its latest version (1.7.1 beta 3 at the time of writing) was needed (and that version requires prototype 1.5.1).
