jQuery Plugin Development in30Minutes ebook released by Websanova.
It’s been long overdue but wPaint 2.0 is finally out. The 1.0 stream was doing well but I was getting continually emailed with feature requests, and bugs particularly on mobile. With this release wPaint has been completely rewritten from the ground up.
I came across the situation the other day where I needed to trim a string. However I didn’t need to trim white space characters, I needed to trim some dollar ($) sign characters.
After finally catching up with a bunch of things on the blog we finally had a chance to work on the extensions page and got it up and running.
It’s not often we need our own jQuery events, but when we do it’s nice to know we can create an elegant solution that behaves like any other event would.
After introducing our wChar, wCheck, wInput and wSelect jQuery form plugin separately over the past couple weeks we have decided it’s only fit to show all the plugins working in harmony together.
This is a simple plugin for text boxes and textarea inputs that gives us clean looking text boxes and takes care of backwards compatibility for placeholder attributes.
The current state of select boxes on the web are just plain ugly and limited in functionality. We wanted to create a select box plugin that could be fully customizable in appearance for one.
I find that the appearance of radio and checkbox inputs has always been limited. Some browsers have allowed some modification of these elements but for the most part it’s quite difficult to get them to look good and fit in with more colorful designs.
Character Counters have always bothered me during development as I was never able to find a good place for them. Sometimes I had forms with multiple inputs and having a little character counter bubble above each one just made the form look bloated and messy.
Most of the jQuery modal plugins out there had either not enough options, or too many and weren’t too flexible either way.
A simple lightweight jQuery pagination plugin. Comes with ajax support allowing you to customize for your needs.
This is a handy little method to have laying around. It allows you to populate an element and clear it after a certain amount of time.
The current implementation of the .css() method in jQuery allows us to set multiple properties to an element, but only allows us to pull one property at a time.
