In one of my current projects, I needed to render some barcodes. Google has a nice “Code 128” barcode font which makes rendering a barcode in a website pretty easy. However, in this particular application, I wound up needing to render the barcodes as images since the HTML that I render is fed into a PDF creator that doesn’t support font-face CSS stylings.

Currently, I’m working on a web project that has searchable tables. The layout requires that the search results that is displayed in the table is scrollable. The idea behind this is such that controls to perform search, paging, and other functions on the table are always in view. There are buttons above and below the table.

If you recall my previous post about CSS flex-box, you saw how you can cause elements to grow/shrink as the browser viewport changes. This seemed like an appropriate technique to achieve what is essentially a vertical fluid-layout.

Making arrow blocks in CSS is pretty easy. You can manipulate the borders of elements, create outlines with overlapping arrows, and other neat things.
