JqGrid is an Ajax-enabled JavaScript control that provides solutions for representing and manipulating tabular data on the Web. It is a JS library built with the principles of power and flexibility, and it fully embraces the open source community.

Instant JqGrid teaches developers how to create and customize grids and how to manipulate data with customized forms. The eBook gives the reader the opportunity to showcase and manipulate data from the frontend itself. Readers will also learn how to set up controls, captions, and features, turning a simple table element into a living component on the page.

The eBook covers topics such as validation and persisting changes to the backend, and it will help readers learn how to further extend their setup with special functions and events. By the end of Instant jqGrid, readers will have a strong knowledge of how jqGrid works, but more importantly, they will know where to find the things they need.

This eBook is aimed at beginners who have some knowledge of HTML and JavaScript. Some knowledge of PHP and SQL would also prove to be beneficial. No prior knowledge of jqGrid is expected. Instant jqGrid embraces readers as they take their first steps and introduces the content in an easy-to-follow format.
