Creating scaleable SVG file folder tabs

Okay Paul I took your latest code and the only thing I changed about it was I copied over the new table data based upon my reassignment of the styles and exchanging a few styles. Before I go any further I am uploading the code because I see the background behind the tabs. Do you see it too? I haven’t updated the anchors; I’m going step-by-step. And there is a leak at the left edge of the first tab. You have to zoom in considerably to see it and I only just now caught it.

Holy Smokers what a great post! I’ll definitely swing by. Thank you. :biggrin:

Try using this new set of keyframes and deleting the other one.

@keyframes tab {
      0% {
        height: 220px;
        width: 200px;
      }

      50% {
        height: 210px;
        width: 180px;
      }

      100% {
        height: 220px;
        width: 200px;
      }
    }

If you want your tables at the left edge of the screen then remove the margins in table1 and table2 etc.

.table2 {
    width: 88%;
    /* margin: 0rem 6% 0rem 6%; */
}

etc.. for others

Also you may want the width to be 100% the same as the background but thats up to you.

I just want to reiterate here for anyone else watching that what you are doing is for your use-case only and is not something that I would recommend for anyone else unless they have the except same set up as you.

Generally you would never size a background to match the size of the text or vice versa or use any background that is thousands of pixels long. We just don’t do that in responsive web design unless it’s to show the full picture unaltered rather than as a background.

The reason we don’t do that is you never know how long a piece of text is going to be and a user may have over-ridden any font-sizes you may have set or may have zoomed text only and in which case the text may spread several hundred pixels further than you thought.

Its not an issue in your case as this is all designed for you and your phone but I just wanted to make it clear to anyone watching that they would most likely do this differently. :slight_smile:

Unfortunately that’s the danger of copy and pastes. With codepens I’m sent I just fork them and then they are mine and then I can keep that copy separate while I work on a newer version. Versioning is very important so that you can roll back when you break something fatally (as will happen to us all at some time) :slight_smile:

I don’t know what it is to “fork” something.

Who on earth said anything about moving my tables? I was referring to your indenting the code — throwing it to the right of my 4” wide screen.

Re: the background being thousands of pixels long. We’re talking about a graphic approximately 1mb in size. No serious drain on resources to view.

Your latest code has healed the background showing behind the tabs but the page is not viewable in Pure Browser. It won’t display (?). @snadyleiby has a mac (I think?) so I’d like to hear from him if he has trouble viewing the page in his flavor of Vivaldi. I was able to open it in Chrome and Android Vivaldi. The tabs look wonderful!

I’ll proceed to advance to the links now and report back. Thank you Paul.

Then there is an opportunity for you to find out and learn. :).

Ah ok sorry. It looks fine on my iPhone and my editor reformats automatically. That’s how I spot all your errors :slight_smile:

The only Apples that I like are edible. :rofl:

My test browsers - Firefox, Vivaldi and Chrome are
all Windows based, so I’m afraid that I cannot be of
much help.

Why wouldn’t you want to test these on your desktop? Because they’re small? There might be people who will have occasion to view these on a desktop. It would be nice to know if they display. Just sayin’. :rolleyes:

Boy it’s a good thing I like to code because this was a rabbit’s warren linkwise. It’s done Paul and the tabs especially look great! I produced a tidied version just for you below. All the tabs work. The code download works. Everything works. :biggrin: I’m happy! I have another project that will be using these 7 tabs for so I’m going to switch tracks briefly for that and then return to the thread full throttle. I want to produce an accessible description of the SVG we’ve been using that even a newbie can wrap their mind around it. Short; concise; accessible. Nothing in the weeds; long on verbs. here she is Paul. Tidied and ready for the dance!

Ok I checked in Safari for you and there is an issue with the tab background. The size of the svg needs to be changed to width="200" at the bottom of the html.

    <image class="tab-animated tan7" transform="translate(00 0)" width="200" height="220" href="https://semicodin.nekoweb.org/pics/parchment-a.jpg" clip-path="url(#shape7)" />
          </g>
        </defs>
      </svg>

That displays the tabs ok in Safari and ios but unfortunately they don’t animate in those two browsers. Otherwise they look fine. It may be that those browsers don’t support the animation on that section of a defs svg but I will look into it some time :slight_smile:

That would surprise me if Safari didn’t support animation. Such a technically advanced piece of software. Thanks Paul. We gotta keep everybody happy! :tongue:

I was just re-reading this Paul and it was such a fantastic post. I’m getting my “Anatomy of an SVG” put together so people will be (generally, I’m not getting into the weeds) comfortable with what a piece of SVG code can look like and hope to have it compiled soon. :face_with_monocle:

And as was previously noted we are no longer using xlink:href only href. I’m making the change in the examples I’m going to post for your review. :face_with_monocle:

What rules are these? A link please Paul.

Lightbulb!
