Update 8, June, 2010(Must see)
- Fixed a bug for php error, it was a typo error
- Transition parameter was missing for slider, it’s fixed now
- Download file is updated! Please reinstall or update the files only. Changes are in the mod_simplejoomlatabslider.xml, mod_simplejoomlatabslider.php and helper.php file
If you check joomla1.5.x backend(joomla1.x had same) in any component or module configuration the right col accordian slider is common. In some components u should see tab too.To make such tab and slider is just so easy !
I think you are thinking about my post title, why I used the words “home made”. Because I am going to show you how u can make such a tab/slider module for front end just using joomla own resource. Joomla gives some execillent api to make html grid, tab, slider etc within a moment. JPane is such an api to make tab and slider. Here you will get some code example about how to make tab using JPane.
In phpxperts yahoo group there was a thread about how to submit a form in a iframe outside the iframe I mean from parent window. I replied my idea using js but the iframe should be in same domain. The js code is like
let me give u whole code. make a new file named frame.html and write the bellow code in that file
<form id="myformid" name="myformname" method="post" action="" target="_self" onSubmit="">
Name: <input type="text" size="20" name="name" value="" id="namefield" />
and open a new file again and save in same dir with name index.html and write the bellow code in it
< !DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<title>Iframe form submit from outside</title>
<iframe src ="frame.html" width="auto" height="40px" frameborder="0" id="myframeid" name="myframename">
<p><input onClick="submitiframeform(); return false;" type="button" name="submit" value="Submit" /></p>
now open the index.html in browser and click the submit button and see the form is getting submitted. I think If you just check the code then I don’t need to explain ‘what is why’.
I was working with js and got a peculiar problem (it’s was unknown to me 😛 😀 🙁 ) about childNodes count in firefox and opera. Internet explorer showed perfectly. suppose my html is like
<li id="id1"> One</li>
<li id="id2"> Two</li>
Now the js:
objFather = document.getElementById('ul_id'); //get the father ul' ID
arrayChildren = objFather.childNodes; //geting array of children
childNum = arrayChildren.length;
Here childNum will give diff values for diff browser. FF, Opera counts the whitespaces . textnodes as child but IE is normal in this case.

I was trying to detect browser version and browser name using java script. I got so many techniques but I am happy with jquery’s one. It’s pretty simple and small block of code. Just check the bellow code that I got from jquery. As it is not possible to use the whole js library all the time but I like to use some part of it or follow the techniques for cross browser tasks. 😀
