Janisch: Elirips: use multiple box-shadow for the outter box
Auclair: Elirips: and use an HR for the inner stuff
Dibartolomeo: Swander: you think it should be possible using a hr? because the “inner” black thing of the hr should overlapp the box-shadow of the outer parts, and I doubt I can get that
Eddins: Chez: most likely, you would need to separate each ‘column’ so that the ‘rows’ are no longer related
Eddins: Or use some JS trickery to offset their position with top when the thing is opened
Eddins: First option would be simpler
Schmidtka: It is 4 50% width floated divs in a container
Eddins: So you’d need to adjust that
Eddins: As I said before, you’d need to put the two ‘left’ items into a left-floated container, the two right ones into a separate container
Eddins: Then, the size of each thing will not affect the position of the other
Numbers: Ah yeah of course. i could write a function to spit out of the CMS oddly and evenly but was hoping to avoid that
Eddins: Chez: you could use absolute positioning :
Moock: I ***ume the same would happen
Eddins: You still have rows being related
Eddins: You could also look at css columns I guess
Eddins: Might actually be a god option
Tourtillott: They’re not heavily supported though are they
Eddins: Everything you care about is supported
Eddins: May just need some vendor prefixes
Puhl: Parent = position: relative – div-long_text = position:absolute; & div-short_text = position: absolute; display:none – so both divs overlap. but the parent doesn’t take into account the height of divs’ short_text/long_text.
Bridger: Green text should show up below the blue/red text. :/
Eddins: Dan2k3k4: abs pos elements are removed from the do***ent flow
Eddins: Other elements do not know about them
Harken: Eddins, hmm, so the parent element would never know about the children?
Eddins: I mean, #next does not know about #parent
Torino: Is there another way to set both children to the top of the parent element ? so they both overlap?
Kahae: Ah oops – in my example I swapped abs/relative abs was for children – but it seems both ways don’t work
Eddins: The parent will adjust to accomodate its relative positined children, but the parent will not affect the #next div
Colucci: Because if I do relative for parent + children, when I ‘switch’ between the two, I get a sort of close effect of 0 height. and ideally I just want to ‘add’ the missing text
Jakes: I suppose I could set the ‘missing text’ elem to only contain the ‘missing text’ and then just show/hide one element, but my function cuts the words with ‘.’
Eddins: Dan2k3k4: this is #css…
Mcarthun: Hi guys, i’m trying multiple backgrounds, but add an extra background for a specific cl*** on top of existing backgrounds? i tried “background: inherit, new_background_def;” but that didn’t work
Maynes: Background: linear-gradientto bottom, #EEE 0%, #CCC 100% repeat scroll 0% 0%, transparent url”/images/tick.png” no-repeat scroll 4px center;
Eddins: AL13N_work: can you share a URL?
Ennals: Anyone know how to do an image in jsfiddle?
Donica: I donno how to do an image though
