Transcript

  • 1. Building InteractivePrototypes with jQuery @Media Ajax - November 2007 John Resig (ejohn.org)
  • 2. What is jQuery?✦ An open source JavaScript library that simplifies the interaction between HTML and JavaScript.
  • 3. Ideal for Prototyping✦ Completely unobtrusive✦ Uses CSS to layer functionality✦ Easy to separate behavior✦ Quick, terse, syntax
  • 4. The Focus of jQueryFind Some Elements Do something with them { { $(“div”).addClass(“special”); jQuery Object
  • 5. The jQuery Object✦ Commonly named ‘$’✦ Also named ‘jQuery’✦ Completely valid: ✦ jQuery(“div”).addClass(“special”);
  • 6. Find Some Elements...✦ Full CSS Selector 1-3 Support✦ Basic XPath✦ Better CSS Selector support than most browsers
  • 7. $(“div”)<div id=”body”> <h2>Some Header</h2> <div class=”contents”> <p>...</p> <p>...</p> </div></div>
  • 8. $(“#body”)<div id=”body”> <h2>Some Header</h2> <div class=”contents”> <p>...</p> <p>...</p> </div></div>
  • 9. $(“div#body”)<div id=”body”> <h2>Some Header</h2> <div class=”contents”> <p>...</p> <p>...</p> </div></div>
  • 10. $(“div.contents p”) <div id=”body”> <h2>Some Header</h2> <div class=”contents”> <p>...</p> <p>...</p> </div> </div>
  • 11. $(“div > div”)<div id=”body”> <h2>Some Header</h2> <div class=”contents”> <p>...</p> <p>...</p> </div></div>
  • 12. $(“div:has(div)”) <div id=”body”> <h2>Some Header</h2> <div class=”contents”> <p>...</p> <p>...</p> </div> </div>
  • 13. Do something with them✦ DOM Manipulation (append, prepend, remove)✦ Events (click, hover, toggle)✦ Effects (hide, show, slideDown, fadeOut)✦ AJAX (load, get, post)
  • 14. DOM Manipulation✦ $(“a[target]”) .append(“ (Opens in New Window)”);✦ $(“#body”).css({ border: “1px solid green”, height: “40px” });
  • 15. Events✦ $(“form”).submit(function(){ if ( $(“input#name”).val() == “” ) $(“span.help”).show(); });✦ $(“a#open”).click(function(){ $(“#menu”).show(); return false; });
  • 16. Animations✦ $(“#menu”).slideDown(“slow”);✦ Individual properties: $(“div”).animate({ fontWeight: “2em”, width: “+=20%”, color: “green” // via plugin });✦ Callbacks: $(“div”).hide(500, function(){ // $(this) is an individual <div> element $(this).show(500); });
  • 17. Ajax✦ $(“#body”).load(“sample.html div > h1”); ✦ Before: <div id=”body”></div> ✦ After: <div id=”body”> <h1>Hello, world!</h1> </div>✦ $.getJSON(“test.json”, function(js){ for ( var name in js ) $(“ul”).append(“<li>” + name + “</li>”); });
  • 18. Chaining✦ You can have multiple actions against a single set of elements✦ $(“div”).hide();✦ $(“div”).hide().css(“color”,”blue”);✦ $(“div”).hide().css(“color”,”blue”).slideDown();
  • 19. Chaining (cont.)✦ $(“ul.open”) // [ ul, ul, ul ] .children(“li”) // [ li, li, li ] .addClass(“open”) // [ li, li, li] .end() // [ ul, ul, ul ] .find(“a”) // [ a, a, a ] .click(function(){ $(this).next().toggle(); return false; }) // [ a, a, a ] .end(); // [ ul, ul, ul ]
  • 20. Why jQuery?✦ Fully documented✦ Great community✦ Tons of plugins✦ Small size (14kb)✦ Everything works in IE 6+, Firefox, Safari 2+, and Opera 9+
  • 21. jQuery Plugins✦ Extend the jQuery system✦ Add on extra methods: $(“div”).hideRemove();✦ Trivial to implement: jQuery.fn.hideRemove = function(speed){ return this.hide(speed, function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); }); };
  • 22. Plugins✦ Drag and Drop✦ Sortables✦ Modal Dialogs✦ Tabbed Navigation✦ Sortable Tables✦ And hundreds more...
