Responsive Web Design

  • by

Almost every new customer wants a mobile version of their website today. In practice it’s important: One BlackBerry design, the other for iPhone, iPad, Netbook, Kindle – and all screen resolutions must also be compatible. In the next five years we may have to develop a number of other discoveries. When did the madness stop? Doesn’t look like.

What Is Responsive Web Design?

Responsive web design is an approach that requires design and development to respond to user behavior and environments based on screen size, platform, and orientation.

This practice consists of a combination of network and flexible layout, images, and the use of intelligent CSS media queries. When users switch from their laptop to iPad, the website must automatically switch to adjust resolution, image size, and scripting features. It may be necessary to consider device settings. For example, if you have iOS VPN on your iPad, the site may not block user access to the page. In other words, sites must have technology that automatically responds to user preferences. This will eliminate the need for different design and development phases for each new device on the market.

Basic Principles

There are 3 basic components of a responsible web design.

Fluid Grids
A fluid grid is a scale network system based on a user’s screen, in contrast to a fixed width pattern that always looks the same. Although this term is sometimes used as a synonym for “fluid layout”, fluid tissue makes all elements different. Just divide the width of each element into a total page width to calculate the appropriate proportions. This can be achieved by measuring high-precision patterns made in a pixel image editor. Resist the temptation to round up values, because your layout has inaccurate proportions.

Media Queries
Liquid grill is very useful. As the browser gets narrower, new challenges arise and we need media questions. Most modern browsers support CSS3 media queries, which allow websites to retrieve data from individual visitors and apply CSS styles under certain conditions. Thanks to multimedia functions, designers can apply certain CSS styles after the browser window falls below a certain width.

Flexible Images
Perhaps the biggest challenge for responsive web design is changing the size of the image. A simple way is to use the CSS Width Width property to make sure the image is loaded to its original size, unless the screen is narrower than the width of the image.

With a maximum width of 100% of the display area, the image shrinks proportionally when the screen or browser narrows. Instead of declaring height and width in the code, you can allow the browser to automatically resize images according to CSS. Note that some older Windows browsers experience display problems when resizing images. In addition to image resolution, consider changing the image size to take into account loading times. Monitors who monitor monitors can slow down mobile devices significantly when they change. For this reason, it is important to use responsive image attributes.
