Scriptaculous Draggable in Action.

(If you are in a hurry, go here, that is what the post is about.)

It’s finally over!!

Relief followed by pride-both preceded by an Idea- pretty much summarizes my feeling now.

Recently I got a HTC Touch for my dad, which, I played around with for a while.I somehow feel, that, the Input devices (Mouse and Keyboard) that I use majority of the time is less fun than using a Touch Sensitive Interface. Maybe fun is not the right word, but, nevertheless the feeling is fun as you move your fingers across the Screen.

I have read in many places that the Market for Mobile Phones is increasing at a rapid rate and hence, I infer that the market for applications designed for such phones should be growing as well. The point is I would like to develop apps that are at the cutting/leading edge for mobile handsets. But, the problem as I see it is the size, yes, the size of the Screens, until we have some sort of a low-cost foldable-screen introduced in the market, I will stick with PC’s.

This is where Scriptaculous Draggables, caught my attention. The way one could drag an element (divs, tables, etc..) on the screen is cool and yes, it is fun.I had been working on an idea for a few weeks and when I hit a bump, I left the code alone for a week and came back to it yesterday. At the end of it all, I learned a few things in Javascript and CSS. I am hoping that this knowledge and showcase would be implemented in one of my other Projects:SansJ.

Anyway, checkout the Demo here: http://play.trk7.com/drag.html

I used a few Icons from the very nice Sweetie Icon Set available here: http://sweetie.sublink.ca/

and if you wish to look at my demos, you can go here: http://play.trk7.com (just one Demo is linked at the moment, I am planning on a regular update.)
