jQuery is a popular JavaScript library that is extensible using plug-ins. Some plug-ins, specifically those for managing the user interface, have been collected together in the jQuery UI library. These plug-ins help facilitate interaction with the user, and these interactions are simpler to manage if you use jQuery only.

This book covers the following extensions in jQuery UI version 1.8:

  • Tab management

  • Accordion menus

  • Dialog boxes

  • Buttons

  • Progress bars

  • Sliders

  • Date pickers

  • Autocompleters

  • Drag-and-drop management

  • Selection, resizing, and switching of elements

  • New visual effects
