About the Book: jQuery UI 1.8: The User Interface Library for jQuery
jQuery UI 1.8: The User Interface Library for jQuery has been specially revised for version 1.8 of jQuery UI. It is written to maximize your experience with the library by breaking down each component and walking you through examples that progressively build upon your knowledge, taking you from beginner to advanced usage in a series of easy-to-follow steps.
Throughout the book, you’ll learn how each component can be initialized in a basic default implementation and then customize and configure each component to tailor it to your application. You’ll look at the configuration options and the methods exposed by each component’s API to see how these can be used to bring out the best of the library. Each chapter will also show you the custom events fired by the component covered and how these events can be intercepted and acted upon.
You can also download a sample PDF chapter by clicking here: Chapter No.8 “The Progressbar Widget”.
