In this final project you'll make a clone of a popular android game called "4pics1word". The game is divided into levels and in each level, four pictures are shown which are related to a word. You, as the player, have to guess this word by looking at these pictures and fill it in the blanks provided. If your answer is correct, you proceed to the next level.
Here's a small video recording of me playing the game:
jQuery is cross-browser compatible. This means that when you run your code, the output will remain the same, independent of the browser. It won't change from one ...
The solution script is divided into three functions, main(), preload() and changeImage(). The main() function calls the other two in order. First the preload() method is called and then changeImage(). Preloading continues to happen in background, while changeImage() executes.
Optionally, you can also further beautify the slideshow using animation effects in jQuery.
Here's the slideshow we made (recorded with Fast 3G network throttling):
In this tutorial you'll learn about a special type of functions — callbacks.
We will also look at pre-loading static assets like scripts, images and stylesheets into the browsers cache so that they can be instantly fetched from the cache which is a lot faster than downloading from a remote URL.
Let's get started!
Set-up for this tutorial
For this tutorial, to ensure that everyone sees similar results and is able to run the code properly, we will change some settings in Google Chrome.
Open up the console using Ctrl + Shift + J. In the t...
The script is divided into three functions startTimer(), calculate() and updateHTML(). The startTimer() method is called when the button is clicked and it does the set-up for the timer to start. If everything is fine, it calls the calculate() method every 100 milliseconds. The calculate() method calculates the remaining numbers of days, hours, minutes and seconds from current time to target. Finally, it calls the updateHTML() method to reflect this time in the HTML as well.
We've also written some custom CSS to make the countdown timer look beautiful.
Although we've provided guidance and instructions for the project, you'll be writing all the code for this project. You are supposed to take end date and time input from the user and run a countdown timer based on the time difference.
Your finished web page should look something like th...
The Math module has functions to do various mathematical operations, and it also includes functions for generating random numbers. It has many constant values as well, like the value of pi (ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter), etc.
Math.E is the Euler's constant — e. It is used as th...
