A Simple Example of Transform Property of CSS3

In this article, we will be use the transform property to show a video.

In this article, we will be use the transform property to show a video like this:

Now we will write the code for that

Step 1

First we create a table to show the names of the videos.

        <table cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2">

            <tr>

                <td id="td1" style="font-weight: bold; color: white; font-size: 20px;" align="center"

                    onclick="ShowVideo1()">

                    I Love You

                </td>

                <td id="td2" style="font-weight: bold; color: white; font-size: 20px;" align="center"

                    onclick="ShowVideo2()">

                    Teri Meri

                </td>

                <td id="td3" style="font-weight: bold; color: white; font-size: 20px;" align="center"

                    onclick="ShowVideo3()">

                    Bin Tere

                </td>

                <td id="td4" style="font-weight: bold; color: white; font-size: 20px;" align="center"

                    onclick="ShowVideo4()">

                    Oh Hum Dum

                </td>

                <td id="td5" style="font-weight: bold; color: white; font-size: 20px;" align="center"

                    onclick="ShowVideo5()">

                    Tears in heaven

                </td>

                <td id="td6" style="font-weight: bold; color: white; font-size: 20px;" align="center"

                    onclick="ShowVideo6()">

                    Tere Mere Saath

                </td>

                <td id="main">

                    <iframe id="i1" width="400px" height="250px" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/QqgJkkVaWk8"

                        frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

            </tr>

        </table>

Here we will use 6 columns and one <iframe> tag to show the videos.

Step 2

Now we will set the transform property in order to show the columns in the specified style:
 

        <style>

            #td1

            {

                width: 200px;

                height: 100px;

                background-color: Red;

                -webkit-transform: perspective( 400px ) rotateY(-45deg);

            }

           

            #td2

            {

                width: 200px;

                height: 100px;

                -webkit-transform: perspective( 400px ) rotateY(45deg);

                background-color: Red;

            }

           

            #td3

            {

                width: 200px;

                height: 100px;

                background-color: Red;

                -webkit-transform: perspective( 400px ) rotateY(-45deg);

            }

            #td4

            {

                width: 200px;

                height: 100px;

                background-color: red;

                -webkit-transform: perspective( 400px ) rotateY(45deg);

            }

           

            #td5

            {

                width: 200px;

                height: 100px;

                background-color: Red;

                -webkit-transform: perspective( 400px ) rotateY(-45deg);

            }

           

            #td6

            {

                width: 200px;

                height: 100px;

                background-color: red;

                -webkit-transform: perspective( 400px ) rotateY(45deg);

            }

            #main

            {

                -webkit-transform: translate(-650px,200px);

            }

        </style>

Now we will look at this code:

  • webkit-transform: perspective( 400px ) rotateY(45deg);

Here we specify the perspective and rotateY property of CSS3.

  • Perspective property: This property is only supported by Safari and Chrome. It specifies how many pixels are a 3d element placed from a view (in my case it's 400px).
  • RotateY: It defines the rotation relative to the y axis (in my case its 45 degrees).

Here we also specify another peoperty, translate, to define the 2D translation:

  • webkit-transform: translate(-650px,200px);

Step 3

Now we will write the code, by which when we click on the name of the video it will be run like this, for this we first specify the function on the onclick event of the columns like this:

<td id="td1" style="font-weight:bold;color:white;font-size:20px;" align="center" onclick="ShowVideo1()">I Love You</td>

Now we will write the JavaScript code for this:

        <script language="javascript">

            function ShowVideo1() {

 

                document.getElementById('i1').src = "http://www.youtube.com/embed/TEk_KpLaRag";

            }

        </script>

        Here we will change the source of the

        <iframe>tag. So when we click on that particular column the video will be run. Like

            this, we will write the code for other columns:

            <script language="javascript">

                function ShowVideo1() {

 

                    document.getElementById('i1').src = "http://www.youtube.com/embed/TEk_KpLaRag";

                }

                function ShowVideo2() {

                    document.getElementById('i1').src = "http://www.youtube.com/embed/QqgJkkVaWk8";

                }

                function ShowVideo3() {

                    document.getElementById('i1').src = "http://www.youtube.com/embed/MI-0wy_qai0";

                }

                function ShowVideo4() {

                    document.getElementById('i1').src = "http://www.youtube.com/embed/0hL0tanw43o";

                }

                function ShowVideo5() {

                    document.getElementById('i1').src = "http://www.youtube.com/embed/Ei1eJokw6SY";

                }

                function ShowVideo6() {

                    document.getElementById('i1').src = "http://www.youtube.com/embed/8yMYpCHwVLE";

                }

 

            </script>

Output

So when we will click on "Bin Tere" the following video will be run:
