Honkanen: So many seemingly useless layers of objects and arrays
Steyer: They -could- use some flattening
Kendrix: Hi. Suppose I have a floor plan. I want to place a html button on a specific location on the image, say on the door. When the button is pressed, some action is performed. Can this be done? https://www.quora.com/Is-it-possible-to-place-html-buttons-on-an-image-floorplan
Sloan: It’s not too hard to do that, but the ‘click’ frame will be rectangular so it won’t fit perfectly over the door
Laux: Although even that could be fixed with some CSS, but that’s likely not worth it
Seller: Gillice: someone told me image maps or canvas element may do the job. Is that a good idea?
Piske: Buttons don’t have to be rectangular ThePendulum
Prabel: Piske: then you’ll need to involve CSS transformations or something
Tomopoulos: Hmm image maps look good
Marian: Let me see if I can make you an example
Swatzell: Gillice: thanks a lot. u’re most kind
Fruin: Gillice: What if the webpage needs to be viewed on mobile devices? Will the button appear on different locations on the image on different screen-sizes? Is that going to be a difficult task?
Toland: I’ll see how that works out
Esguerra: I haven’t used it either
Brelje: Asw_: I don’t think it’ll scale well
Kittelman: Someone came out with a solution. http://codepen.io/anon/pen/pjgNwM
Mowatt: Asw_: this is just the difficult way of making an image map though
Gentleman: Why not just use an image map
Merson: Gillice: why is it difficult? it’s pure html
Zuehl: It’s CSS, unlike an image map, which is pure HTML
Wilding: Hi, someone familiar with making spherical panoramas?
Bile: Asw_: http://jsfiddle.net/fL4c6osm/
Hauth: Eh sorry for that CSS, that was ineffective
Dumm: But now your door is clickable
Rorie: It’d be even better to have the floorplan completely in SVG
Rabito: Gillice: wow! the code looks even simpler
Gurnsey: Asw_: yeah, there’s no CSS involved for the actual map
Bowey: More beautiful would be if the floorplan was an SVG
Arlan: Then you could literally make the ‘door’ clickable, rather than just an area on top of the door
Deprospero: Gillice: what if I want a button to appear on the door? Can that be done?
Dominik: I’m trying to figure out how to apply CSS to areas
Medler: Wouldn’t that clutter up the image though
Elvis: So, i need to place a button at the bottom of the screen. on iOS in landscape as well as portrait. The page is inside a cross-origin iframe. In landscape, the device insists that the height of the window is 568px, and the width is 578px, but outside the iframe the window.innerHeight reads as 212px, which is accurate.
Okajima: Gillice: without some sort of button, the user may not know where is clickable
Elvis: Css media queries fail me here, as does. really, everything.
Shoaff: If I give the area in a map any CSS styling the element appears to the side of the map
Entz: You’d need JS for that I think
Adduci: Tcsc, so your iframe is bigger than its do***ent?
Sitter: Asw_: I think for your purposes it’d be easier to ceate these floorplans as SVGs
Elvis: Pikul: sort of. only because the media queries arent matching
Tumbleson: Gillice: I tried it on my smartphone. That rectangle works as well!
Oelke: Although I guess that’s difficult
Theberge: Asw_: oh it will as long as the image has a fixed width
Poser: Gillice: it works on different screensizes
Pavao: Tcsc, maybe a more specific rule is overwriting your query
