Despite the possibilities offered in HTML5, there's still a call for customizable widgets that can be used in websites and web apps. jQuery UI, a popular plugin for jQuery, is here to answer that call. Joe Chellman shows how to install the plugin, use the accordion and date picker widgets, and add behaviors that change how existing page elements respond to user input. Finally, you'll apply the concepts you've learned to a typical project you might see coming from a client—a survey form.

This course is a short companion piece to jQuery for Web Designers. See that course for information about building your core jQuery skill set.

Welcome

(Music) Hi, I'm Joe Chellman, and welcome to jQuery UI Widgets. This is a short companion piece to my course jQuery for web designers, here on lynda.com. JQuery UI is a customizable plug in for jQuery, the world's most popular JavaScript library. In this course we'll be looking at a few pieces. First, I'll show you how to install and begin using jQuery UI. We'll look at some of its user interface widgets, contrasting them with need of browser widgets. jQuery UI also includes functions that can enhance elements you've already created through interactions and visual effects.

We'll look at examples of each, particularly highlighting the areas where jQuery UI enhances the already powerful animation capabilities of jQuery core. Finally, we'll implement jQuery UI on an existing webpage, enhancing it as if requested by a client. jQuery UI is one of the most popular plugins for jQuery, and can help you use useful interactivity to your projects. This course will help you get comfortable with it so you can start using it right away. Let's get started with jQuery UI widgets.
