Split text in automatic pages

Posted 19 August 2012 - 05:12 AM

Hi everyone.
After searching for an answer to my problem, Iím unable to find a solution. Iím a noob and I havenít got so much experience about Jquery.
Here is my problem:
I want to make a book app for smartphones and tablets. Iíve got a long text I want to place in multiple pages, but I want the app to generate this pages according to the lenght of the text and the screen size of the device. The text should full a page and automatically start a new page to continue. The page generation will continue until all text is placed on pages.
Does anyone know how to do it?

Thank You

Hello Xavuse,

You appear to be asking a very large question and you've supplied no code yourself to show that you have attempted the issue. I do know myself how I might achieve said goal for an application but it would take too much time and effort to explain every intricate detail, so I shall point you in some directions.

Getting screen sizes
Use the .width() and .height() functions in conjunction with a jQuery wrapped $(window) object.


Splitting large chunks of text
The splice() and split() functions will help you tear up the text to the desired sizes.


The following two CSS properties might be of use to you also in this task.
