CSS Applying specific rule for a specific monitor resolution with only CSS is posible?

I have a design with a width;1010px this design have two Arrow for a slideshow "left" and "right" and are out of the box (width:1010px div container), in an absolute position.

.showcase-arrow-next { right: -40px; top:150px; background-position: -70px 0px; }

so I would like to know if it's posible to declare a rule for specific monitor resolution, actually for ipad resolution 1024x728, I would like to position my arrows inside of the 1010px container when the monitor is 1024x728, I know how to do this with prototype, jquery, javascript alike solutions, But I don't know if it's posible to resolve this problem with only css approach.

thanks in advance


Use a CSS3 Media Query to apply conditional styles to devices with a specific size:

<style> @media screen and (min-device-width: 768px) and (max-device-width: 1024px) { .showcase-arrow-next { right: -40px; top: 150px; } } </style>

You can also detect the orientation of the device (Portrait vs. Landscape) by using the <strong>'orientation' media feature</strong>, which can be combined like so:

@media only screen and (min-device-width: 768px) and (max-device-width: 1024px) and (orientation: portrait) { /* iPad Portrait Mode */ .showcase-arrow-next { ... } } @media only screen and (min-device-width: 768px) and (max-device-width: 1024px) and (orientation: landscape) { /* iPad Landscape Mode */ .showcase-arrow-next { ... } }


Yes, it is possible and you should search the web for "Responsive web design" and read about Media queries.

Something like this would be what you´re looking for;

@media handheld and (width: 1024px) { // add your CSS rules here }
