Jquery Mobile - Split button listview

    Today we will be taking a look at a listview example where we can include 2 clickable items instead of the usual 1 clickable item. In all the listview examples that we have seen till date, we have had only 1 clickable item per list, i.e. only 1 anchor tag included within the li tag. We will now take a look at an example where we will see, how to add 2 clickable items in the same list.

    In case where there are more than 1 possible action per list item, a split button can be used to offer two independently clickable items - the list item and a small icon in the far right. To make a split list item, we simple need to include a second link inside the li tag and JQM framework will do the rest for you. It will add a vertical divider line, style the link as an icon-only button and set the title attribute of the link to the text of the link for accessibility as you can see in the result section in the jsFiddle below.



    You can set the icon on the extreme right by specifying the data-split-icon attribute on the listview with an icon name you want. The default icon is "arrow-r" but can be configured with the splitIcon listview options. I have used the "star" icon in the above example. By adding a data-icon attribute to the list item, you can set individual icons for each split. The theme swatch color of the split button defaults to "b" but can be set by specifying a swatch letter with the data-split-theme attribute at the list level as I have used the "c". For individual splits, you can apply the swatches with data-theme attribute at the link level.

    The icon that we have used for the split need not be from the JQM default icon set. We can have our own icon and we will see how to customize the icon on the listview in subsequent examples. Stay tuned for more examples on Jquery Mobile. Hope you have followed this one. Drop a comment in case you have any issues regarding this code sample and I would be happy to help.

Where does Google get it's live traffic data from?

Referring to a post that I wrote earlier, Google’s - Live traffic Layer, ever wondered how Google collected this data? I was wondering the other day, how Google received live data to display it on their maps as a layer! I looked up the web and found something very interesting and am sharing the same with you all.As we all know, the traffic layer is available most accurately in several states in USA. Most major metro areas in the US have sensors embedded in their highways. These sensors track real time traffic data. Easy to miss at high speeds (hopefully anyway, traffic permitting), more commonly noticed may be the similar sensors that often exist at many busy intersections that help the traffic lights most efficiently let the most amount of people through. The information from these tracking sensors is reported back to the Department of Transportation (DOT). The DOT uses this data to update some of the digital signs that report traffic conditions in many metro areas. They also…

Two maps on the same page - Side-by-side

How good I am feeling to post a code example after such a long time! It's been all "news" over the past so many posts! Well now that I am finally doing a code example, I am posting a very highly requested code sample. Placing two Google Maps on the same page (Now that's simple you would say!), but side by side. Now this is the thing that most people struggle with. Well, implementing the second part is also very simple, as you will see in today's code.

    Let's see the code. Here it is!



    The output of the above code will be as seen in the result section above.

    As most of you will realize, there are two maps, one centered at "Pune" and other at "Noida". Why I chose these two locations? Well, just like that!...The main issue of concern is how the maps appeared side-by-side and not one below the other as would be normal behavior of two "div" elements used in the same page. Now here is the trick! Check out the the first
