Creating accessible charts using canvas and jQuery | Filament Group, Inc. - 0 views

    Data visualization in HTML has long been tricky to achieve. Past solutions have involved non-standard plugins, proprietary behavior, and static images. But this has changed with the recent growth in support for the new HTML Canvas element, which provides a native drawing API that can be addressed with simple Javascript. This article is a proof of concept for visualizing HTML table data with the canvas element.

Canvas Tutorial - Introduction - 0 views

    Welcome! In this tutorial, we're going to create a breakout clone that you can play in your browser, using javascript and the element. In order to use this tutorial, you'll need to have a relatively recent version of Firefox, Safari, or Opera. You cannot use Internet Explorer, because Microsoft hss decided not to implement the element in it. Before you read any further, click on the "run code" button on the left to play the game that we'll end up creating. On every page, you'll be able to click the "run code" button to run the code we've developed so far. Every page besides this one has an editor in it containing the javascript code that will be run in the same box as the game as soon as you click the button. You can make changes to the code, and see the results instantly by clicking the "run code" button. In order to make our lives easier, I've included the jQuery framework in every page, which extends javascript in your browser with some useful methods. If you have any comments or questions, feel free to leave a comment on the "comments" tab.
