      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.

Use   for small snippets of code Use   for lengthy snippets of code Use   if your snippet is HTML (optional) Use   if your snippet is SQL (optional) Rules of Conduct   Be nice. 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~

How to Center the jPlayer Circle.Player

Recommended Posts

BACKGROUND:  What I thought would be an easy task through the use of a <div> wrapper has proven very difficult, if not impossible.  Whoever built this nifty GUI either knows a lot more than I about positioning and placement, or they built this widget totally oblivious to potential user implementation.  Please understand that I have gone through a lot of trouble to get it to work, am loathe to abandon it at such a late stage, but definitely will abandon it, if I cannot learn to place it at my will.

DILEMMA and QUESTION:  I would very much like to center the audio player displayed on the following page, but cannot seem to accomplish the task.  Have you any suggestions short of rebuilding the entire graphical interface pixel by pixel?

 

VIEWING STEPS:

Step One:  Open to Sender Proxy and click on the link entitled Proxy Link in the bottom-left corner.

Step Two:  When the page open click on the words Click and Listen.  The image that appears is what I would like to center beneath the words Click and Listen.

The pages necessary to understand the structural and formatting aspects are provided below:

 

SOURCE PAGES:

The Template:  http://www.grammarcaptive.com/podcasting/template/template.html
You must open the page in source code to make any sense of it.  The portion of this page that forms the template begin and ends with the following two <div> tags: 

Start Tag:  <div id='podcast_insert'>
End Tag:    </section><!-- end section_summary --> 

The CSShttp://www.grammarcaptive.com/_utilities/lbrary/jPlayer-2.9.2/lib/circle-player/skin/circle.player.css

The Javascript:  http://www.grammarcaptive.com/_utilities/lbrary/jPlayer-2.9.2/lib/circle-player/js/circle.player.js
I offer this Javascript only  for the sake of completeness.  As  a well-formatted jQuery product, the CSS is truly a separate issue.

 

HOST PAGE JAVASCRIPT USED to INITIALIZE the PLAYER

<script>
$("#click_listen").mouseenter(function() {
    $(this).css({'cursor':'pointer','color':'#5a4149'});
    $(this).click(function(){
        $("#cp_container_1").show();
        var myCirclePlayer = new CirclePlayer("#jquery_jplayer_1",
        {
            m4a: "http://www.jplayer.org/audio/m4a/Miaow-07-Bubble.m4a",
            oga: "http://www.jplayer.org/audio/ogg/Miaow-07-Bubble.ogg"
        },
        {
            cssSelectorAncestor: "#cp_container_1",
            swfPath: "_utilities/library/jPlayer-2.9.2/dist/jplayer/",
            wmode: "window",
            keyEnabled: true
        });	
    });				
})
.mouseout(function() {
    $(this).css({'cursor':'none','color':'#fff'});
});
</script>

Was this code provided by jwplayer? Cause from what i see everytime a mouseenter happens, a on click event is applied to same element, which can happen multiple times.

What is inside the click function was supplied by jPlayer.  Everything else was written by me and is not yet complete.  Surely this is not the source of the centering problem, however.

To centre like the text, the outer container should be set to inline as in display: inline-block; this will allow this element to be centred as text, as well as enabling and setting width, which a display: inline; wouldn't allow.

Also because the element is by default a block element, and has a width set, you could also use margin: 0 auto;

Thank you for your suggestions.  The following decidedly works, but I am not sure why.

				<div style='text-align:center;'>
					<h1 id='click_listen'>Click and Listen</h1>
<!-- The jPlayer div must not be hidden. Keep it at the root of the body element to avoid any such problems. -->
					<div id="jquery_jplayer_1" class="cp-jplayer"></div>
<!-- The container for the interface can go where you want to display it. Show and hide it as you need. -->
					<div id="cp_container_1" class="cp-container" style='display:inline-block;margin: 0 auto;text-align: center;'>
						<div class="cp-buffer-holder"> <!-- .cp-gt50 only needed when buffer is > than 50% -->
							<div class="cp-buffer-1"></div>
							<div class="cp-buffer-2"></div>
						</div>
						<div class="cp-progress-holder"> <!-- .cp-gt50 only needed when progress is > than 50% -->
							<div class="cp-progress-1"></div>
							<div class="cp-progress-2"></div>
						</div>
						<div class="cp-circle-control"></div>
						<ul class="cp-controls">
							<li><a class="cp-play" tabindex="1">play</a></li>
							<li><a class="cp-pause" style="display:none;" tabindex="1">pause</a></li>
		<!-- Needs the inline style here, or jQuery.show() uses display:inline instead of display:block -->
						</ul>
					</div><!-- end div#cp_container_1 -->
					<p style="font-family:'Bradley Hand', cursive;font-size:1.6em;">Did you learn from it?<br />Did you like it?</p>
					<div id='share'></div>
					<p style="font-family:'Bradley Hand', cursive;font-size:1.6em;">Now, teach and share it!</p>
				</div>

Is it because the <div> tag into which it is being inserted is itself being treated as text?

inline elements such as span, strong act how text acts when alignment is used, they shrink to content so height and width can't be used. Block elements by default fill the width available to them, and by adding text-align to this block element which fills the available width, any inline elements within it or child block elements along with text will be aligned to the specified text-align: left/center/right; of this parent element.

The player container div is a block element, with fixed set width, by default it will position itself left as it not defined as a inline/inline-block element. In this current state a block element with fixed width will only centre itself if margin: 0 auto; is used.

IF the player container because it has a fixed width was defined as display: inline-block; would be set to defined width and align as text would, following the text-align: rule set out on parent container.
