CSS3: Rounded Table Corners (No images)

You cannot give a whole table (<table>) rounded corners using CSS, browsers will ignore it, you must round the corners of the cells (<td>) inside.

The following uses CSS2 selectors (:first-child etc) and CSS3’s corner-rounding border-radius to selectively round the outer corners of the cells in the corners.
This will work for any size table.

table.rounded-corners tr:first-child td:first-child {
	border-top-left-radius: 5px;
}
table.rounded-corners tr:first-child td:last-child {
	border-top-right-radius: 5px;
}
table.rounded-corners tr:last-child td:first-child {
	border-bottom-left-radius: 5px;
}
table.rounded-corners tr:last-child td:last-child {
	border-bottom-right-radius: 5px;
}

PHP Bug: json_encode() misleading warning on object with private properties

I have found a peculiar issue with PHP’s json_encode() function.

If you have an instance object with private properties and use json_encode() it will give you a very misleading warning.

class ExampleObject {
    private $privateProperty;
    ...
}
$obj = new ExampleObject();
json_encode($obj);

results in

Warning: json_encode() … recursion detected …

There are two workarounds in the comments for the function at php.net but this is simply a PHP bug as far as I am concerned.

10/GUI


10gui.com

This is as much an HCI concept as it is about the GUI.

I think a multitouch pad would be great.
5 fingers, i.e. one hand, would be plenty though, and having one hand remaining on the keyboard allows for faster resumption of typing long text.

My HTPC keyboard already has a simple multi-touch action, two finger to scroll, and I’m sure moving up to five fingers would be perfectly achievable by most users. In fact, in the video above there were only s few times when you’d have to use more than two or three fingers.

I think this is all fantastically interesting, and discussing the subject with people who won’t just shoot down the unknown/unfamiliar will lead to some great things.

I wish I could be more involved with this area of research and development.
