Resetting Cursor in Bing Maps – Support IE

August 10, 2015

I was having trouble resetting my Bing Maps implementation cursor back from a cross-hair (used when plotting a pin) to the default grab cursor.

I found that a slightly modified cursor url did the trick:

Old – _map.getRootElement().style.cursor =’url(https://ecn.dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/v7.0/7.0.20150720111303.14/cursors/grabbing.cur) 10 9, move’;

New – _map.getRootElement().style.cursor =’url(https://ecn.dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/v7.0/7.0.20150720111303.14/cursors/grab.cur), move’;


TagIt

April 2, 2015

TagIt! I have officially wrote the beginning of my first jQuery plugin.

I have been working on a much larger application and needed a lightweight tagging plugin for jQuery. I looked around but couldn’t find one that fit my needs. Lightweight, auto-complete, handles key/value pairs. I really wanted something that I could send some auto-complete values to that not only had a value, but a key.

I decided to take the plunge… and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The project is open-source and I hope someone can get some use out of it.
Your feedback is always welcomed.

960 Grid Adapted to 1120px

July 28, 2014

I have used the 960 Grid System on a few projects and wanted to include it in the use of a recent work related project. Problem was that I needed to utilize more than 960px of the screen.

The solution? I adapted the 960 16 column grid system to be used as a 1120px 16 column grid system.

The 1120px design scheme allows for each of the 16 columns to be 50px instead of 40px wide, while still keeps the 10px margin on the left and right which creates the 20px gutters.

While this is fairly specific to my needs, it may solve someone else’s problem as well.
