Hi,

My code works but what do I do about responsive design?
When I resize the browser I want the jquery animation to resize as well .
This code is made for a static display on a desktop.


<script type="text/javascript" src="http://jqueryjs.googlecode.com/files/jquery-1.3.2.js"></script>
	<script src="jquery.easing.1.3.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
	<script type="text/javascript">
		$(document).ready(function() {
		
 		 window.img = ["images/bcave1.png", "images/bcave2.png"];
		 window.indexNum=0;
		 setTimeout("animation()",100);
			
			
		});
		
	
		
		function animation(){
			setInterval("sun_raft()",2000);
			setInterval("cloud1()",1000);
			setInterval("pic1()",100);
			setInterval("animatepic1()",100);
		}
		
		function animatepic1(){
			 $("#pic").attr("src", img[indexNum]);
     		 indexNum++;	
      		 if (indexNum >= 2) {indexNum = 0;} 
	   
	    }
		
		
		
		function pic1(){
			$("#pic").animate({left:"650px"},4000).animate({left:"-150px"}, 0);
		}
		
		function sun_raft(){
			$("#sun").animate({opacity:".1"},1000).animate({opacity:"1"},1000);
	
/*			setTimeout("sun_raft()",2000);*/
		}
		function cloud1(){
			/*$("#cloud1").animate({left:"+=850px"},10000).animate({left:"-150px"}, 0)*/
		  $("#cloud1").animate({left:"850px"},1000);

			/*setTimeout("cloud1()",10000);*/
		}
		
	</script>
	<style type="text/css">
	    *{ margin:0; padding:0; }
	    body { text-align: center; background: red; }
			#wrapper{ margin:0px auto; width:700px; }
		#content{ position:relative; width:700px; height:300px; top:30px; overflow:hidden; border:5px solid #f5f5f5; background: url('images/scene_bg.jpg'); }
			#sun{ position:absolute; top:10px; left:30px; }
			#pic{ position:absolute; top:80px; left:30px; }
			#cloud1{ position:absolute; top:60px; left: -150px; z-index:1; }
		#img {  max-width: 100%; }
	</style>
</head>


<body>
<div id="wrapper">
		<div id="content">
        
			<img id ="pic" src="images/bcave1.png" alt="eight ball" />
			<img id="sun" src="images/sun.gif"/>
			<img id="cloud1" src="images/cloud1.png">
		
		</div>
	</div>

i think by the lack of responsive and my searching for this, jquery for animation for responsive designs is a lemon

I would suggest that you try using the CSS3 "transform" property to scale it: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/transform#scale

What you will want to do is set the width of the div using your responsive class that will change by the detected screen width.  

Perhaps at over 1000 px window #content is 700px wide but below a 700 px window it goes to to 500px and so on.   Therefor, step one is getting your containing div for the animation to use responsive code which it is not doing now.

Now you need to dynamically set your widths in your js so this type of code is not static
function pic1(){
			$("#pic").animate({left:"650px"},4000).animate({left:"-150px"}, 0);
		}

I would suggest making the "650px" a percent of the containing div.  Actually do that for all the numbers.  

This is a working example I quickly made to detect the change of a div  http://jsbin.com/utalub/1/edit
    .test{width:80%;height:100px;background-color:green;margin-top:100px;}

.animation{margin-top:30px;font-size:38px;}

Open in new window

var x = '700px';
$(window).resize(function(){
 var test_width=$(this).width();
 $('span#green').text(test_width);
  var floor = Math.floor;
  var animation_width=floor(test_width * 0.7);
  $('div.animation').text(animation_width);
 
  
});
  

Open in new window

  <div class="test">Hi EE. I am <span id="green"></span> px wide</div>
  
  <div class="animation"></div>

For modern browsers, just use the vh and vw units to set the dimensions and sizes and everything should scale to the viewport size.

Good one Cd&.  I have not fully adopted all the cool css3/html 5 tricks on a regular basis yet so they are out of mind.
