I’m proud to launch our first ever Premium tutorial, exclusive to members. For this flagship tut, veteran developer/writer Dan Wellman – author of the recently released jQuery UI 1.6, from Packt publishing – will teach you how to build an advanced “poll” jQuery plugin. Not only will you have a lengthy tutorial to study, but we’ll also provide a companion video tutorial to assist.
To celebrate our first Premium tutorial, I also have some free books to give away, courtesy of Packt!.
A Wonderful, and In Depth Tutorial That Will Take You From A-Z
In this tutorial we’re going to be creating a jQuery plugin from start to finish; this plugin will allow us (or other developers) to easily add a simple poll widget to a web page or blog. By poll widget, I mean an area in which a question is posed which visitors are encouraged to answer. Once they have answered the question the results of the poll will then be displayed.
To help celebrate the launch of our new plus program, I have some books, courtesy of the folks over at Packt publishing, that we’ll be giving away!!
I have a few copies of Dan’s new “jQuery UI 1.6″ book, as well as “The Jquery Reference Guide”. All you have to do is leave a comment with a quick jQuery tip. We’ll then randomly choose several winners! I’ll go first.
If, within a function, you find yourself repeatedly calling “$(this)”, consider caching it.
$(this).click(dosomething); ..... $(this).somethingElse(); ...... $(this).evenMoreSomething();
var $this = $(this); $this.click(); ..... $this.somethingElse(); ..... $this.evenMoreSomething();
