  1. In Topic: Video Picker Menu

    Posted 18 Mar 2015

    Okay I took a step back and looked at the drill down a bit more. Then started from scratch. Naturally JQuery was the hero.

  2. In Topic: Video Picker Menu

    Posted 16 Mar 2015

    Not really, I want to see all 3 columns at once.
    Here is what I have so far now that the css is a bit better:


    I want the Categories, Topics, and Videos column to be visible, then when you click/hover on a category, the topics in that category will change, and the same for topics to videos.
  3. In Topic: <img> not displaying properly, and background-color not being

    Posted 3 Oct 2014

    Solved, this worked:
    //thumbnail.style = "background-color: " + opponentColor +";";
    thumbnail.style.backgroundColor = opponentColor;

    I'll get someone better at making graphics to fix the png
  4. In Topic: <img> not displaying properly, and background-color not being

    Posted 3 Oct 2014

    I'm not using any shadows or gradients behind the png image. My code basically outputs this:
    <img alt="Field 1" src="images/shirt_field1.png" style="background-color: rgb(90, 142, 190);">

    <img alt="Field 3" src="images/shirt_field3.png">

    I'm wondering if jQuery mobile is changing something, or IE/Chrome don't support the line:
    thumbnail.style = "background-color: " + opponentColor +";";

    I'm not 100% worried about the border color, I'm going to get a friend to make a better graphic for me, but those imgs are 80x80, and that is what jquery mobile scales the images to.
  5. In Topic: How do I get rid of a null pointer exception?

    Bit of further explanation of locality. The reason we can use the same variable name in different methods is because of the scope of a variable. in Java it is pretty simple to tell in the basic case because a variable will stay in scope until the code block is complete (e.g.
    { }
    ). Take the following code. It will break because I try and access the variable out of scope
    if( true ) {
       int a = 5;
    System.out.println( a );

    Now when dealing with class variables and constructors we usually want to keep our terminology the same to make things easier. So if we create a new Person( "Sam" ). we would probably write a class like this:
    public class Person{
      private String name;
      public Person( String name )
        //what do we put here?

    So how do we know which 'name' to use? Well if you don't explicitly tell Java, it will always use the most local one. Another way of saying is the more recently created one inside that block (in the class above, it would be the parameter to the constructor). So in order to maintain the similar terminology and state which to save we need the keyword this.
    public class Person{
      private String name;
      public Person( String name )
        this.name = name;

    this, is talking about "this class" essentially, and will distinguish that we want to save the parameter 'name' to the class 'name'.
