About the Book

One of the larger challenges in writing a cookbook is to strike a balance between breadth, depth and usefulness of the content. With scores of practical jQuery recipes you can use in your projects right away, this cookbook helps you gain hands-on experience with the jQuery API. Each recipe includes working code, a live demo and a discussion on why and how the solution works. This eBook covers the latest version of jQuery 1.11.0, jQuery UI 1.10.4 & jQuery 2.0.

You are not required to read this book from the beginning to the end. Each recipe is independent and lays out a specific solution to a scenario that will be immediately useful in your day-to-day work.

This book is primarily geared towards the everyday jQuery developer and designer who wants a reference for specific issues that come up in their projects. Even seasoned experts could learn some new tricks or explore areas of the jQuery API they haven’t touched yet. A high level view of the contents are as follows:

  1. Some Core jQuery concepts
  2. Working with Images
  3. Working with Tables, Tabs and Panels
  4. Working with Input Controls
  5. Working with DropDown and Lists
  6. Working with Menus and Treeview
  7. Working with Forms
