In this week’s installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart teaches us about how to change the look of HTML buttons using their CSS attributes. It’s great fun, but I have to confess we don’t actually get to the new stuff till over an hour into the show! We had so much fun going through the homework from last time that we lost track of time. I was so excited because I’d worked really hard on my homework this time and was able to actually conquer the first two parts (with some help from my friends) but I did struggle a bit with the third piece where I had to assemble them together. Anyway, we decided it’s ok if you skip ahead to the CSS parts if you like; it starts at an hour and six minutes in.
On this week’s continuing series Programming By Stealth, Bart introduces us to HTML forms in order to take user input. It’s a pretty basic installment so not as head bendy as they have been lately. He also gives us some more repetitive homework to get more practice creating and using prototypes and accessor methods. The full written tutorial can be found at bartbusschots.ie/….
Apologies for getting the episode number wrong in the audio – I said it was #460 when it’s actually #461.
In this installment of Programming By Stealth, we’re working towards our first truly practical assignment in the series – a function that finds all links on a page, and if, and only if, they lead to an external page, alters them to open in a new tab, and appends an icon indicating that fact. Bart’s amazing full on tutorial is over at bartbusschots.ie/…. I also mention a fun little jQuery Easter egg, which you can find at citymapper.com. Just follow the link and open the console on your favorite browser and you’ll find a text based adventure game!
