Build powerful and interactive web applications with jQuery UI using Packt’s new book

November 2009 | Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce a new book on jQuery UI 1.7 that helps readers build rich web applications with ready to use widgets from the jQuery User Interface library. Written by Dan Wellman, jQuery UI 1.7: The User Interface Library for jQuery helps developers create powerful front-end interfaces for their web applications with jQuery UI.

jQuery UI is an open source library of interface components such as  interactions, full-featured widgets, and animation effects, based on the stellar jQuery JavaScript library. Each component is built according to jQuery's event-driven architecture and is themeable, thereby making it easy for developers of any skill level to integrate and extend into their own code.

Utilising this book, developers will learn how the brand-new CSS framework styles each of the jQuery library components. They can enhance the interactivity of their pages by displaying messages and images using the dialog widget, adding the deterministic progress bar for giving visitor feedback and providing a drag-and-drop mechanism for rearrangement of the elements around their pages.

jQuery UI 1.7 is an example-based book which gives developers a step-by-step approach through the implementation and customization of each library component, thereby helping them bring out the best of the library. They will also be able to assemble their interfaces using latest technologies like AJAX and JSON which are mentioned at the end of each chapter in the ‘Fun With’ section.

Front-end designers and developers who have working knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, that are willing to learn the jQuery UI User Interface Library will find this book an enjoyable and  beneficial read.
