TUTORIALS CSS REGIONS: NEW WORKING DRAFT
2 of 3
On May 28th 2013, we published a new W3C working draft for CSS Regions, one of
the features proposed by the Adobe Web Platform team. Here are the most important changes you should be aware of:
property, which controlled the behaviour of the last region in the region-chain, was renamed to
to make it clear it doesn’t change overﬂow behavior, but rather fragmentation. Its functionality has not changed.
We reﬁned the events generated by named ﬂows, to make them more clear and give developers better control over the timing of their event handlers. Here’s what changed:• Added the
event is dispatched if the value of the regionOverset property changes for any of the regions in the region chain, including the case when regions are added or removed from the chain.Most uses of the
event were to track how the named ﬂow ﬁts in the region chain. This new event should be used for these cases now.• Added the
event is dispatched on any change to a named ﬂow’s fragmentation through its region chain, including changes to any overset fragment. This event is not yet implemented in WebKit or Blink but we will be adding it in the future.• Removed the
event has been removed from the Regions spec and will be removed from WebKit and Blink around
.Make sure to update your code to use the new regionoversetchange event instead of it.
