If this is your first encounter with a developerWorks tutorial that includes demos, here are a few helpful hints:
- Demos are an optional way to see the same steps described in the tutorial. To see an animated demo, click the Show me link. The demo opens in a new browser window.
- Each demo contains a navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. Use the navigation bar to pause, exit, rewind, or fast forward portions of the demo.
- The demos are 800 x 600 pixels. If this is the maximum resolution of your screen, or if your resolution is lower than this, scrolling is necessary to see some areas of the demo.
