      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change. If, after reading this, you still can't post and don't understand why, contact one of the Moderators listed here.   Topic Guidelines   Including the following information can expedite an accurate response from board members: Must be a Specific Problem or Question related to web design and development Include Code in Question (wrap with   for small blocks of code and for longer blocks   ) Include Code Author Include Extra Notes/Modifications/Attempts Include web link to page/file when possible Content Guidelines   You may not post, upload, link to, or email any Content that contains, promotes, gives instruction about, or provides prohibited Content.

There's no need for calling someone stupid if they ask an 'easy' question. Keep your avatars and signatures absolutely child friendly. We have a younger audience on this forum. Keep your language appropriate for the same reason above. Do not PM moderators for help on the forum. Post on the topic, or create a new one.   Spam:   Recently, as you have all without doubt noticed, we have had lots of spam and advertisement on the forum. Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

w3-btn and what am I doing wrong?

Recommended Posts

On a webpage I'm building the client likes his buttons to be formated with the following -

<button class="w3-btn w3-left-align w3-aqua w3-border w3-border-indigo w3-round-xxlarge w3-small" onclick="myFunction('a')">Answer</button>
<div id="a" class="w3-container w3-hide w3-left-align w3-aqua w3-border w3-border-indigo w3-round-xxlarge w3-small" style="width:65%;">orange</div>
	

Problem is he wants different colors on different pages, and many of them. So in the future changing the colors will be a major drag. Using all those selectors like that defeats the purpose of the css, right? So I am working on making a selector that contains all the details of the w3-btn w3-left-align w3-aqua w3-border etc etc. I have searched the w3-css style sheet version 3 for all relevant attibutes and have come up with this -

	.BtnShowAnswerPink {
border:none;
display:block;
outline:0;
padding:6px 16px;
vertical-align:middle;
overflow:hidden;
text-decoration:none!important;
text-align:center;
cursor:pointer;
white-space:nowrap;
-webkit-touch-callout:none;
-webkit-user-select:none;
-khtml-user-select:none;
-moz-user-select:none;
-ms-user-select:none;
user-select:none;
box-shadow:none;
float:left;
width:100%;
-webkit-transition:background-color .25s,color .15s,box-shadow .25s,opacity 0.25s,filter 0.25s,border 0.15s;
transition:background-color .25s,color .15s,box-shadow .15s,opacity .25s,filter .25s,border .15s;
color:#000!important;
background-color:#ff9999!important;
border:1px solid #ccc!important;
border-color:#ff3333!important;
border-radius:32px;
font-size:12px!important; }
	.BtnHideAnswerPink {
padding:0.01em 16px;
display:none!important;
color:#000!important;
background-color:#ff9999!important;
border:1px solid #ccc!important;
border-color:#f44336!important;
border-radius:32px;
font-size:12px!important; }
	

Problem is it doesn't actually work. The button does not expand to show the text. After much more experimenting I have found that the first part, .BtnShowAnswerPink, is ok, the problem is in the second section. What is happening is the button does not expand. I have verified the javascript, and it is fine.

So, at this time, this is what I have working -

<li>D: _____, I'm Donna.<button onclick="myFunction('a')" class="BtnShowAnswerPink">Answer</button>
<div id="a" class="w3-container w3-hide w3-left-align w3-pink w3-border w3-border-red w3-round-xxlarge w3-small" style="width:65%;">
Hi (Hello), I'm Donna.
</div>
</li>
	

The javascript also comes from this site, here it is:

	<script>
function myFunction(id) {
    var x = document.getElementById(id);
    if (x.className.indexOf("w3-show") == -1) {
        x.className += " w3-show";
    } else {
        x.className = x.className.replace(" w3-show", "");
    }
}
</script>
	

What am I missing from the second part, .BtnHideAnswerPink?

I can't provide a link to the site as it is not published, yet.

Thanks.

Ok, so after much experimenting I have gotten it to work with this code, not exactly what I was hoping for, but it works -

	<li>J: Where are you ______?<button class="w3-container w3-btn BtnShowAnswerPink" onclick="myFunction('l')">Answer</button>
	<div class="w3-container w3-hide BtnAnswerPink" id="l" style="width:65%;">Where are you from?</div>
</li>
	

So, what would be really nice if including whatever makes up "w3-container" and "w3-btn" into the BtnShowAnswerPink and "w3-container" and "w3-hide" into BtnAnswerPink.

I have tried by copying everything related to those and pasting into the code but it simply doesn't work, as if something is still missing. The buttons don't open.

So at this point, I'm going with the above solution. If anyone knows how to integrate the other bits please post the info here.

What i would do is apply a class to parent container, use that class name along with w-3 class colour you wish to target, to give it higher precedence, then change to whatever colour you wish, without messing around with original w-3 css styling and duplicating everything.

you could use w3-color-overide01 on parent then

.w3-color-overide01 .w3-aqua {background-color: lime; }

I have gotten it working as I had hoped -

In my .css file I have done this:

	/* the dark blue section */
.section1 {
content:"";
float:left;
width: 66.6666%;
display:table;
clear:both;
padding:0.01em 16px;
border-radius:8px;
color:#fff !important;
background-color:#000066 !important;
border-left:6px solid #0000ff !important; }
	/* right-side column for images and graphics */
.whiteSection {
float:left;
width: 33.3333%;
padding:0 8px;
text-align:center!important;
background-color:#fff!important; }
	

So, what does this do for me? This is what would be needed in every page of the site if using the w3-css properties directly -

  <div class="w3-row">
    <div class="w3-container w3-twothird w3-safety-yellow w3-text-black w3-leftbar w3-border-orange w3-round-large">
        <p>stuff</p>
    </div>
    <div class="w3-container w3-third w3-white w3-center">
        <img src="../images/image.png" alt="image.png" width="250" height="117" />
    </div>    
  </div>

Now all of that is changed to this:

  <div class="w3-row">
    <div class="section1">
        <p>stuff</p>
    </div>
    <div class="whiteSection">
        <img src="../images/image.png" alt="image.png" width="250" height="117" />
    </div>    
  </div>



Obviously a huge simplification of all the webpages and much easier to manage and update later.
Comments and suggestions welcome.

Don't give a specific colour name, just 'sectionColor01', 'sectionColor02', that way if you change to different colour, because its not specific named colour, its less confusing, and no need to change named colour description.

Exactly, that's what I have settled on - names like - section1 (which is dark blue), section2 (which is dark green, etc, and BtnSection1 (for a contrasting button for the dark blue section. I've followed this same pattern for other subsections.  It's been a lot of trial and error experimenting, but it's all coming together now. This whole process is to change an old website to a more modern site, changing not just styles but also formatting. I hope to be done with it next year (I'm working on it alone, between my private language students).

Yes I do, and that particular section will not change as it is for images/graphics that need a white background, rather than making all the images/graphics transparent. So for this site that is acceptable.
