In Detail

When jQuery was introduced, it took the JavaScript world by storm. Years later, it shows no sign of slowing down. Its powerful yet concise syntax helps to simplify tasks that might otherwise be difficult or complex. Whether you're a JavaScript novice or an expert, jQuery is a valuable addition to your toolbox.

Instant jQuery 2.0 Table Manipulation How-to shows you how to quickly and easily add style and functionality to your HTML tables. You'll be amazed to see how easy it is. Just don't let your customers know!

HTML tables can be boring. Sure, we can make them more stylish with CSS, but users want interactivity. They want to be able to sort columns, see totals, filter data, and page through information in easily digestible chunks.

Starting off with a plain HTML table, and an ID and a few class attributes, you will see the transformations occur with just a few lines of jQuery. Instant jQuery 2.0 Table Manipulation How-to progresses to showing you how to highlight specific table cells and filter table data, and even sort columns or page through data.

Regardless of your skill level with JavaScript or jQuery, this book will walk you through the deceptively simple steps needed to add functionality and interactivity to your HTML tables.
