Last Call: View Mode Media Feature

Author(s) and publish date


The Web Applications Working Group has published a Last Call Working Draft of View Mode Media Feature. Web applications, be they widgets or in-browser, can on most platforms be run in multiple visual modes. At times they may occupy the entire screen, at others they may be minimized to a specific docking area; at times they may have chrome that matches the operating system's style while at others they may be providing their own controls. The user is generally in control of at least several aspects of these modalities, and it is therefore important for authors to be able to react to these in order to provide different styling to their applications. In order to achieve this, this specification defines a media feature that allows different CSS style rules to be applied depending on whether a given media query matches. Comments are welcome through 18 May. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.
