Hi All, Happy Friday! Does anyone have experience with invoking java code from an ajax call in a javascript file? Not sure if I should be invoking a jsp file or servlet?

oh hi @cjpicc11 you're on here too. yea let me know if you have any other questions. the idea should be that you create a rest api in java. then connect whatever java function you want to call to a get or post method

Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Sep 30 2016 15:05

You made html body and container all height: 100%
JBC944
@JBC944
Sep 30 2016 15:06
it worked on the homepage but did not work on the menu
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Sep 30 2016 15:08
Look at the div you want 100% tall. Make sure it's 100% height. Look at whatever that div is in. Keep going up the chain until you hit html.
every parent needs to be 100%

i got it now thanks i got one more question
i got a menu button in the middle of my page
how do i move it ?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Sep 30 2016 15:10
Going to need more details there. Are you just wanting to shift it around the page left/right? Or put it above or below something else?
JBC944
@JBC944
Sep 30 2016 15:10
i want it above text in the middle
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Sep 30 2016 15:11
Then mostly likely what you need to do is move the html above the text.
If you put the code into codepen and then post a link to the pen here http://codepen.io/pen anyone in the chat can take a peek and let you know :)

Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Sep 30 2016 15:16
okie. I'm going to be afk a bit. I'm almost caught up in reading on my 2nd class. Then I'll only have reading in two classes over the weekend to get caught up in @_@
But if you post the codepen here, anyone can jump in and help.

I’m trying to come up with a scale of brightness, using words, with 9 variables
maybe 10 variables actually, from pitch black to utterly blinding
one word each, though

__Dark__
Dull
Dim
Faint

__Light__
Clear
Pure
Vivid

__Bright__
Lustrous
Radiant
Brilliant
this seems okay..

haha nice

David Castner

lol it's inspired by my scss which defines a normal color such as $red and then using darken($red, 30%) or lighten($red, 20%)

anyone ever get the feeling that they have been too productive at work, so they slow down on purpose to make sure expectations are in line?
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Sep 30 2016 20:30
Slow down? No. Discretely work on other things? Yes. End result? Same.

@JBC944 it's not screwing up, it's learning about what doesn't work
