Dodecahedron

Updated the Spinning Dodecahedron from Flash to JavaScript. Does it spin nicely for you? Can you use drag mode?

And if you have a mobile device of any sort could you test it on it?

Re: Dodecahedron

Hi MathsIsFun,

The 'Spinning Dodecahedron' (Flash) looks good.

I am unable view 'JavaScript' version. Hence, no comments offered. .

Re: Dodecahedron

Hi;

It is working fine.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Re: Dodecahedron

hi MathsIsFun,

Laptop with windows 10 and IE11:  It drags and explodes but doesn't spin.

Kindle:  browser Silk: I was surprised to discover all works!!!  I thought it would not work on a Kindle; many apps don't.

Re: Dodecahedron

Thanks All!

I wonder why it won't spin on bob bundy's laptop?

Re: Dodecahedron

I wonder this too.  Can you suggest some other pages that have similar code, so I can try these too?

Re: Dodecahedron

Spin doesn't work on my laptop's IE11 either, but Drag and Explode do. I haven't tried my desktop PC's browsers yet.

Re: Dodecahedron

Solved it! I used a variable called "frames", which IE treats as a special windows property. Simply renamed it and it works.

Thanks for uncovering this bug.

Re: Dodecahedron

Do not worry?  I'm sure it is Ok to worry about Ireland.

Or did you mean "Id Est" from Latin ?

OH! I get it.  You meant "Infective Endocarditis".  Now that is something to worry about!
