HTML & CSS
Any help appreciated.
This isn't something you can do with HTML, which is a markup language for web pages.
You need to go into the operating system/window manager settings to change this, or, possibly, the browser preferences.
Thanks. I guess there's no other way of showing it in a larger font ? ? Other than js ?
The only alternative is a pseudo-modal box you overlay on the screen, which lays a transparent or semi-opaque "curtain" over everything else. Commonly called a lightbox.
Please look carefully at what I posted! Especially the bit where it says "Other than js ?"
Thanks Raffles, the helps appreciated. I'll look at that as well.
Yep, got that the FIRST time Ben, that's why I then said "Other than js ?"
Anyway, no worries
I know that I interpreted it that way, and so did Bpartch and Tommy
Yep, but I did say it clearly enough. There would be others that understood me as well, but let's move on a little now
Apparently you didn't as 3 people have now misunderstood it. :rofl:
Apparently, according to pm's, I did. After all, it was "Other than js ?" :lol: :lol:
Therefore the answer to "other than JS" is "no there isn't".
Raffles (and others who've pm'd) seemed to understand, that "Thanks. I guess there's no other way of showing it in a larger font ? ? Other than js ?" would mean any other way, apart from js, but anyway, no worries, have moved on from that now. Suggest others here do as well.
This question doesn't belong in the HTML/XHTML forum at all. Unfortunately the SitePoint moderators don't care any more, but you should still try to post in the appropriate forum.
Many thanks for the helpful response Tommy. Now we're in the css forum, hopefully, someone will come in with some ideas on how to do this
Can you explain what you require now that it has been clarified that you can't change the text in an alert box and we'll try to help. Are you just looking for some sort of styled pop up message box?
Something like the examples on this page perhaps.
I had a stab at doing this once, trying to do it as CSS-only as possible. It's possible to do it only with CSS (by using the CSS3 pseudo-class) but that's not a cross-browser method.
Thanks Paul, I love the page on that link, excellent work with the rollovers, but what I'm looking for, is a message to tell people in FF to press Ctrl + D if trying to save to favs.
