CSS Positioning


#1

what is 50% in navbar id left = 50%;


#2

this:

#navbar {
   /* more css code */ 
  left: 50%;
}

left is similair (yet very different) from margin-left. it will set the #navbar 50% to the left, as you can see in this simpe example

i wrote an extensive answer about position, margin and left here


#3

so, it means 50 percent of the margin (screen) ?


#4

That depends, what position is used? Your question suggest absolute, if it is absolute, then the question is: what are the parents? If none of the parents are non static, then yes, it is placed 50% to the right (space on the left side)

thanks helped me lot
btw i completed html/css course
what should i learn next jscript/python/php etc
if my aim is to build my own website and make chrome extensions and apps.


#6

That depends, javascript + jquery would be nice to make your website interactive. So i do recommend that.

You can learn python followed by django, then you can use django to manage the back-end of your website. But since you also learned js, you could learn nodejs (which is really growing and in demand at the moment) or you could learn php + php framework to mange your database web end.

Of course, python serves more purpose then just web back-end. It is a really nice language, i write scripts in it to automate task on my computer.

So, i think we discusses websites. chrome extensions? No idea, but @zystvan made a chrome extension, so i am sure he can answer that for you.

Apps for what? with frameworks like phonegap you could make a app in html + css + js. If you want to make apps for ios learn swift, if you want apps for android, learn java (java !== javascript)


#7

being a cse student i have little knowledge about java,c++,python, linux .
so i have decided to follow this
python -> jscript+jquery -> nodejs

but is there anything like jscript in python so that i can replace jscript with that

and lastly, i am currently in earn to learn mode so can you kindly suggest me some ways to earn using cse skills.


#8

why would you do python if you js + jquery (js library) + nodejs (js framework)?

This questions are confusing:
but is there anything like jscript in python so that i can replace jscript with that
and lastly, i am currently in earn to learn mode so can you kindly suggest me some ways to earn using cse skills.
could you elaborate?
what is cse skills?


#9

1) i know some part of python so why not learn it completely and then turn towards js+jq

2) for java syntax is similar to jscript
same way
python syntax for creating interactive effects within web browsers (like jscript).

3) cse = computer engineering

4) i way asking for some ways to earn money online especially for computer engineering students


#10

1) Yea, if you already know python you could learn it more.
2) javascript is similar to java? I don't find them similar, and they serve different purpose.

You can't create interactive effects with python in a browser, that doesn't work (python is not available in a browser). That is why you learn js (or jquery, which makes interactive effects easier)

4) Don't know, programming is purely a hobby for me. Maybe approach company's who have an outdated website and ask if you can make a better website for them? Build your own site, host it, host ads on it, earn money? No idea

@pysurfer02955 A basic browser extension is made with JavaScript, maybe CSS, and JSON.

Re earning money:

  • Make yourself a website, and host your projects (at least the good ones) online. It doesn't have to be fancy, but you can get a job or internship just by having someone decide they like your work and would like you in the company.
  • It might be worth checking if your college IT department needs additional students; you can get a job from someone seeing your skill there as well.

hi just visited ur website its awesome :blush: .
i'm planning to start learning jscript so how should I go about
(i have learned java 3 years back but need to revise it to be fluent)


#13

Thanks, glad you like it!

Just to clarify, JavaScript, JScript, and Java are three different languages. JScript and JavaScript are very similar, but they've got some slight differences.
I would recommend the JavaScript and Java courses for you. Whether you want to learn JScript or JavaScript, they're similar enough I think the JavaScript course will be able to get you started :)


#14

Wait, what? i assumed Jscript was the same as js, oops. That explains a lot.


#15

oh i see i thought jscript and java script are same
which one is better please suggest me one


#16

JScript and JavaScript are very similar, it's just a few minor differences between them. But yeah, they're different :)

@pysurfer02955 Learn JavaScript, that's what everybody will assume you mean if you say you know JScript anyway.
