Checkbox Hack


Recommended Posts

I used the checkbox hack and the new flex box properties to make a pure css flyout menu. It validates but not sure as to what the future might be for this trick. I'd rather not turn to javascript so for now I'm thinking about deploying this menu. Take a look at demo at chicagophil.com. So far I know Opera browser doesn't work but firefox, safari, and chrome all seem a go. What are your thoughts?

It looks fine to me; I'm using Opera 12.16 and it works fine. CSS3 user-select doesn't work in Opera mini however. You may want to add some prefixr to your code however to account for older browsers.




label {

cursor: pointer;


-webkit-user-select: none;

-moz-user-select: none;

-ms-user-select: none;

user-select: none;

height: 30px;

position: absolute;

width: 40px;

top: 0px;




#content {

display: block;

clear: both;

width: 100%;

background-color: lightblue;

padding: 8px;

min-width: 90%;


-webkit-box-sizing: box-border;

-moz-box-sizing: box-border;

-ms-box-sizing: box-border;

box-sizing: box-border;
