About the Book “jQuery 1.3 with PHP”

jQuery 1.4 Reference GuideTo make optimal use of jQuery, it’s good to keep in mind the breadth of capabilities it provides. So, if you are looking for a comprehensive reference guide to this popular JavaScript library, this book is for you.

The book has been revised and updated for version 1.4 of jQuery, and it offers an organized menu of every jQuery method, function, and selector. Each method and function is introduced with a summary of its syntax and a list of its parameters and return value, followed by a discussion, with examples where applicable, to assist in getting the most out of jQuery and avoiding the pitfalls commonly associated with JavaScript and other client-side languages.

In this book you will be provided information about the latest features of jQuery that include Sizzle Selector, Native event delegation, Event triggering, DOM manipulation, and many more. You won’t be confined to built-in functionality, you’ll be able to examine jQuery’s plug-in architecture and they discuss both how to use plug-ins and how to write your own.
