HTML & CSS
Hi forum experts,
I remember playing with Z-Index in terms of placing my image at the location desired in my web-site.
Now, with HTML 5 Canvas, I wonder if Z-Index is no longer valid?
Hope to hear from you soon.
In Canvas you basically print pixels on top of the existing painting like paint on a... canvas
Animation is mostly frame by frame where you paint, clear, paint, clear etc..
So, z-index doesn't make sense because there's no such thing as layers - there's only ever 1 layer.
Hope it helps
Yes, z-index still very much has its place in CSS, and will continue to do so.
Erm...do you have an example to show you meant ? Can't really understand putting a layer on top of another. Isn't Z Index work the same. We put in a background colour and then we use the Z-Index to put another image on top ?
I read more into your question than I should have, see Ralph's answer above.
The majority of websites don't need canvas at all, it has a very small use-case.
If you do need canvas for something in the future you'll learn that it's just an element that you can paint pixels onto.
you can't have multiple elements in a canvas at different z-index. There's only ever one element the <canvas>
