What's the easiest most efficient way to execute this?

Currently I'm using
http://malsup.com/jquery/corner/

But I am having a hard time trying to make the 1px border around my div's.

Please include a working example with CSS code too:

I would like a rounded box with a 1px border of a different color.


P.S.
If you know of a better jquery plug in to get this done, please let me know.


//rounded corner example code from the website...

$(this).corner("round 8px").parent().css('padding', '4px').corner("round 10px")

A 1px border will be too thin for this plugin to utilize properly.  Use a min of 2px.

Below is an example of a box with a 2px border and the necessary parts to include.
<html>

<head>

<style type="text/css">
 

/*Change background color here for inner color*/

div.inner { margin: 0; background: #ffc; padding: 10px; border:0; zoom:1;}
 

/*Change background color here for border color*/

div.outer { float: left; margin: 15px; background: #c82; padding: 8px; width: 22em }
 

/*Use this to hide the code*/

div.inner p {display:none;}

</style>

<!--Make sure to include the scripts with proper pathing-->

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.3.1.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.corner.js"></script>
 

<script type="text/javascript">

    // test auto-ready logic - call corner before DOM is ready

    $('#readyTest').corner();

    

    $(function(){

        $('div.inner').wrap('<div class="outer"></div>');

        $('p').wrap("<code></code>");
 

        $('div.demo, div.inner').each(function() {

            var t = $('p', this).text();

            eval(t);

        });
 

        // fixed/fluid tests

        $("div.box, div.plain").corner();

        $("#abs").corner("cc:#08e");

    });

</script>
 

</head>

<body>

<div class="inner"><h1>Round</h1><p>$(this).corner("round 8px").parent().css('padding', '2px').corner("round 10px")</p></div>

</body>

</html>

Is there a possible way by using the z-axis to obtain 1px?

You can set the variable to 1px, but it will cause square corners due to the way the code is written.  Unfortunately a decent looking rounded corner in this case will require the minimum of 2px.
//From

<div class="inner"><h1>Round</h1><p>$(this).corner("round 8px").parent().css('padding', '2px').corner("round 10px")</p></div>

//To

<div class="inner"><h1>Round</h1><p>$(this).corner("round 8px").parent().css('padding', '1px').corner("round 10px")</p></div>

Were you able to resolve this using css & Jquery?  If not you may be able to go about it using rounded corner images and borders so that you can achieve your 1px effect.

yes, this is what I ended up doing.. using jquery to automatically insert 4 div's to a certiain class div with 1px borders.
