Moving Boxes – how to resize

  • # June 17, 2009 at 12:06 am


    I was working with Moving Boxes tutorial – I was looking for some help on how to make the slider smaller – the width is fine but I would like to scale the width down by at least a 1/3.

    Looking at the slider.js I can see the height and width – would this be the only place that I need to change the height and width?

    update : – Nobody using Moving Boxes? Or is it that no one has an idea how to change the size? –


    I was able to get the surrounding border height reduced

    I am having trouble with resizing the image so that the overall function of the slide works

    Link to demo:

    I know that I am close – could defiantly use some help to get over the hump

    Update:: 06/19/09 – I figured this out – I will not say that this is the best method or practice but it worked for me. If someone can improve upon my suggestion please feel free to post –

    In the slider.js there are four variables you can change as you scale down the size of the sliding box make sure to update the image width and the slider content height.

    Also, you will need to make adjustments to slide distance and position – due to fact that you reduced the image size – the sliding box will now be off center – so adjusted as necessary-
