Colorful and Scalable Buttons with CSS3 & RGBA

Posted · Category: Buttons, License Free

One of great things about CSS3 is the addition of RGBA, a color mode that adds alpha-blending to your favorite CSS properties. ZURB has kicked the tires on it a bit with their own projects and have found that it helps streamline their CSS and makes scaling things like buttons very easy. To show you how, ZURB has cooked up an example of some Super Awesome Buttons with CSS3 and RGBA.

With a little CSS3 magic, we can create a scalable set of buttons with nearly half the CSS it would have taken with hex colors. Give it a go in your next project and see how it can help add that extra polish you want without huge impact on your code.

Reusable Imageless Google Custom Buttons

Posted · Category: Buttons, License Free

Until some future version of HTML gives us new native controls to use in a browser, at Google, they have been playing and experimenting with controls they call “Custom Buttons” in their apps (among other custom controls). These buttons just launched in Gmail and Google Reader recently.

The buttons are designed to look very similar to basic HTML input buttons. But they can handle multiple interactions with one basic design. The buttons we’re using are imageless, and they’re created entirely using HTML and CSS, plus some JavaScript to manage the behavior. They’re also easily skinnable with a few lines of CSS, which was a key factor now that Gmail has themes.

ParticleTree Rediscovering the Button Element

Posted · Category: Buttons, Forms, License Free

As we know, the input with the type=”submit” is either too ugly (Firefox), a little buggy (Internet Explorer) or completely inflexible (Safari). The solution for most is to use image inputs and create the damn things ourselves. And it’s unfortunate, because then we’re reduced to the tedious tasks of opening up Photoshop every time we’re in need of a new button. What we need is something better—something more flexible and meant for designers. Lucky for us, the solution already exists. ParticleTree introduced us a better way to do it, also with mouseover and mouseout effect.
