psd file exampleDEMO.Tabbed Slider DOWNLOAD.

Credits goes to where you can download psd version of this content slider.

Surfing internet you bump into great tabbed content slider, but the problem is that you have only the psd file.

Today we are going to reveal some basic tips in order to make this psd file alive.

First of all – ANALYSE.ANALYSE


Thirdly – STRICTURE. After we`ve prepared all necessary jpeg, png, text files. We are going to create HTML file. Afterwards we create style sheet and then make our slider alive by means of jQuery.

Finally – CODING.

HTML file. First of all in head section going all necessary information. We import 2 external files (jquery-ui-personalized-1.5.2.packed.js & jquery-1.2.6.min.js) which help us to make slider more dynamic.

[sourcecode language=”html”]<br /><br /><br /><br />
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" ""><br /><br /><br />
<html xmlns=""><br /><br />
<head><br /><br />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /><br /><br />
<title>Tabbed Slider Content Demo</title><br /><br />
<link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" /><br /><br />
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.2.6.min.js"></script><br /><br />
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-ui-personalized-1.5.2.packed.js"></script><br /><br />
<script type="text/javascript" src="code.js"></script><br /><br />
</head><br /><br />

Afterwards we code our menu. I`ll write only main piece of code, rest you should finish by yourself.

[sourcecode language=”html”]<br /><br />
<div id="wrapper"><br /><br />
<div id="main"><br /><br />
<ul class="nav" id="nav2"><br /><br />
<li class="selected"><a href="#1"><p>Custom Websites<br/>&nbsp</p></a></li><br /><br />
<li><a href="#2"><p>Security Shield Badge <br/>&nbsp</p></a></li><br /><br />
<li><a href="#3"><p>Ecommerce Website PSD<br/>&nbsp</p></a></li><br /><br />
<li><a href="#4"><p>Product Website<br/>&nbsp</p></a></li><br /><br />
<li><a href="#5"><p>Creative Portfolio<br/>&nbsp</p></a></li><br /><br />
<br /><br />
</ul><br /><br />
<br /><br />
<div id="1"><br /><br />
<div id="intabdiv"><br /><br />
<h1>Clean Corporate & Business Website</h1><br /><br />
<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.<br /><br />
Suspendisse odio risus, volutpat at bibendum ut, facilisis quis mauris.<br /><br />
Ut viverra diam non ante scelerisque accumsan. Cras quis suscipit elit. Quisque ornare molestie lacus sed tempus. Praesent id ante arcu, a luctus nibh. Fusce laoreet blandit quam, nec accumsan dolor iaculis nec.<br /><br />
</p><br /><br />
<br/><br /><br />
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp<br /><br />
<a href=""><br /><br />
<img src="images/download.png" width="250" height="64" border="0px solid white" /><br /><br />
</a><br /><br />
</div><br /><br />
<div id="tabdivimg"><br /><br />
<img src="images/1.png" width="435" height="320" /><br /><br />
</div><br /><br />
<br /><br />
</div><br /><br />
<br /><br />
<div id="2"><br /><br />
<div id="intabdiv"><br /><br />
<h1>Download security shield badge and icons</h1><br /><br />
<p>Etiam a ligula ut erat auctor ornare. Donec adipiscing porta tortor, ac pulvinar velit ultricies eu.<br /><br />
Maecenas a erat vel ipsum scelerisque blandit. Aliquam nec magna dui, id elementum urna. Morbi varius pellentesque libero, ultrices laoreet eros suscipit at. Donec<br /><br />

<br /><br />
<div id="tabdivimg"><br /><br />
<img src="images/2.png" width="371" height="358" /><br /><br />
</div><br /><br />
</div><br /><br />

Then, lets set a few style for the main part of our slider. Of course,it`s not a complete style sheet, and rest you can find in download package.


[sourcecode language=”css”]<br /><br />
ul.nav {<br /><br />
width:900px;<br /><br />
height:23px;<br /><br />
position: absolute;<br /><br />
bottom: 40px;<br /><br />
left:0px;<br /><br />
}<br /><br />
ul.nav li {<br /><br />
width:180px;<br /><br />
height:80px;<br /><br />
float:left;<br /><br />
}<br /><br />
<br /><br />
.nav li {<br /><br />
text-decoration:none;<br /><br />
list-style-type:none;<br /><br />
}<br /><br />
<br /><br />
.nav li p {<br /><br />
padding-left:50px;<br /><br />
padding-right:20px;<br /><br />
padding-top:5px;<br /><br />
text-decoration:none;<br /><br />
color:#71001a ;<br /><br />
font-size:16px;<br /><br />
font-weight:bold;<br /><br />
line-height: 20px;<br /><br />
background-image:url(images/separate.png);<br /><br />
background-position:right top;<br /><br />
background-repeat:no-repeat;<br /><br />
<br /><br />
}<br /><br />
li.selected<br /><br />
{<br /><br />
margin-top:-2px;<br /><br />
margin-left:-1px;<br /><br />
background-image:url(images/nav2.png);<br /><br />
background-repeat:no-repeat;<br /><br />
background-position:left top;<br /><br />
color:#ffffff;<br /><br />
}<br /><br />

And finally, coding. I`ll show you only how to code first menu item, all next menu items will be coded in the same manner.


[sourcecode language=”js”]<br /><br />
$(function() {<br /><br />
//Set the position of small popup image<br /><br />
var offsetX = -10;<br /><br />
var offsetY = -85;<br /><br />
//Select the element of navigation<br /><br />
$(‘ul.nav li:first’).hover(function(e) {<br /><br />
//Insert image<br /><br />
$(‘<img id="popimg" src="images/11.png" alt="big image" />’)<br /><br />
//Set css property to #popimage using .css<br /><br />
.css(‘top’, e.pageY + offsetY)<br /><br />
.css(‘left’, e.pageX + offsetX)<br /><br />
.appendTo(‘body’);<br /><br />
}<br /><br />
, function() {<br /><br />
//Hide Popup when mouseout<br /><br />
$(‘#popimg’).remove();<br /><br />
});<br /><br />
<br /><br />
$(‘ul.nav li:first’).mousemove(function(e) {<br /><br />
$("#popimg").css(‘top’, e.pageY + offsetY).css(‘left’, e.pageX + offsetX);<br /><br />
});<br /><br />
//////////// Show visited item when mousedown<br /><br />
$(‘ul.nav li:first’).mousedown(function(e) {<br /><br />
//we remove class "selected" from all menu items<br /><br />
$(‘ul.nav li:nth-child(2)’).removeClass(‘selected’);<br /><br />
$(‘ul.nav li:nth-child(3)’).removeClass(‘selected’);<br /><br />
$(‘ul.nav li:nth-child(4)’).removeClass(‘selected’);<br /><br />
$(‘ul.nav li:nth-child(5)’).removeClass(‘selected’);<br /><br />
// put class "selected" on the visited menu item<br /><br />
$(‘ul.nav li:first’).removeClass(‘selected’).addClass(‘selected’);<br /><br />
});<br /><br />
});<br /><br />
