Using @media screen queries
Posted on 2014-10-10
My question relates to using css @media screen queries. For example, I have a 10" tablet that shares the same default screen resolution as my large 22" desktop display monitor, That resolution is 1920 x 1080. The webpage I've designed - which basically is just a video player laid on top of a background image - looks and functions great on my 22" desktop monitor, but not all that great on my 10" tablet. Well, technically I guess it looks okay, but the usability of the video player becomes a little more awkward on the tablet (touch instead of mouse). So . . . is there some way that I can still use the @media screen query (or some other media query) to load a different background image for the tablet? In other words, I'd like to write a style sheet that would style the page differently for these two devices, even though they share the same screen resolution. Is that possible? Is there a way, for instance, to specify diagonal screen size in addition to pixel resolution in a style sheet in order to make this happen? I've just recently been introduced to media queries, so . . . there may be a very simple way to accomplish this that I'm just not aware of. (??) Thanks!
