Tutorial :jQueryUI widgets



Question:

How do I work with widgets? Here's what I've got so far:

<html>  <head>  <script src="http://www.google.com/jsapi"></script>  <script type="text/javascript">  google.load("jquery", "1");  google.load("jqueryui", "1");  </script>    </head>  <body>  <div class="ui-widget">      <div class="ui-widget-header">          header      </div>      <div class="ui-widget-content">          content      </div>  </div>  </body>  </html>  

I'm trying to make a nice little div with a shaded header.


Solution:1

All you need added to your current code is the stylesheet to make those lovely classes have some meaning, like this:

<link href="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8/themes/dot-luv/jquery-ui.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />    

Here's your example with that theme (dot-luv)

For other themes, look at this question, just change the version number in the url from 1.7.0 to current, which is 1.8 as of this answer time. Alternatively, you can design your own theme in ThemeRoller and point to that stylesheet :)

Solution:3

The UI effect are mostly obtained with the use of css files.

You can use javascript to make some effects that play with add and remove class from an element.

JQuery UI is a good example of some effects.
