Video Description

jQuery UI is a trusted suite of official plug-ins for the jQuery JavaScript library, which gives you a solid platform on which to build rich and engaging interfaces with maximum compatibility and stability, and minimum time and effort.

jQuery UI training is made easy in this video, with step-by-step examples, useful tips, and quick tricks. This course breaks down complex tasks into bite-sized chunks, making it the best resource for you to use if you want to start using jQuery UI. Learn how to save hundreds of hours in development using jQuery UI's awesome components.

Even in the HTML 5 world of today, there are many oft used components and functionalities that still aren't part of a browser out of the box; this library is the critical solution, which will save you hundreds of hours while building highly sophisticated components for your applications. We'll cover the basics, and then build our first component – the datePicker - and we'll customize its characteristics. We'll discuss the ThemeRoller application for quickly skinning components, and the dialog component in all its detail. You'll also learn how to discover component features on your own, how to listen in on variables and changes, as well as how to trigger and listen to events. We'll then kick it up a notch with jQuery UI's drag-and-drop capabilities and build a working example that uses all of these features. We'll use components effectively, examine event properties in detail, and even clean up our code to make it more presentable. We'll wrap up by demonstrating as many of jQuery UI's essential and popular components as we can, followed by a brief course recap and summary.
