CrossBrowdy - Basic tutorial

Client

Features and plug-in detection (CSS3, native canvas, Silverlight, Flash...)

Some features and plug-ins can be detected by CrossBrowdy. Here is an example:


	//Support of native "canvas" element:
	if (CB_Client.supportsCanvas()) { CB_console("The canvas element is supported natively!"); }
	else { CB_console("The canvas element is not supported natively, but it may be emulated with CrossBrowdy luckily"); }
	
	//Support of CSS3 transform:
	if (CB_Client.supportsCSS3Transform()) { CB_console("CSS3 transforms are supported!"); }
	else { CB_console("CSS3 transforms are not supported and probably neither other CSS3 features..."); }
	
	//Flash plug-in detection:
	if (CB_Client.supportsFlash())
	{
		CB_console("Flash plug-in is available. The version is: " + CB_Client.getFlashVersion(true)); //Using "true" to force it to return a string.
	}
	else { CB_console("Flash plug-in does not seem to be available"); }
	
	//Silverlight plug-in detection:
	if (CB_Client.supportsSilverlight())
	{
		CB_console("Silverlight plug-in is available. The version is: " + CB_Client.getSilverlightVersion(true)); //Using "true" to force it to return a string.
	}
	else { CB_console("Silverlight plug-in does not seem to be available"); }
