One of the
reasons for the popularity of the web is the graphical user interface
offered to the end users. Images, animations, fonts and other
interactive effects make a website appealing from an end user's
perspective. However, one limitation that website developers often
encounter is drawing graphics in the browser. As a solution, developers
often resort to Flash or Silverlight based plug-ins or generate graphics
on the fly at server side and then send it to the client. HTML5 does a
great job in client side graphic rendering by offering what is known as
certain new graphic objects. Understanding HTML5 canvas and associated
article teaches you just that.
HTML5 introduced several new input types for <INPUT> element. These new input types include number, range, email, url, color, date, datetime and a few more. Though these types are not fully supported by all desktop browsers any ASP.NET developer should know them because newer browser versions will definitely support them. In this article you will learn the basics of using the new input types. More importantly you will also learn to use them with ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC applications.
