  • 3. Why jQuery ?
    • Makes Javascript coding easier.
    • Increases the speed of development.
    • Extensive support through community forums and large plugin base for numerous features.
    • Example:
    • document.getElementbyId(‘myElement’); $(‘#myElement’)
  • 4. Main objectives of jQuery
    • Improving interactions between JavaScript and HTML.
    • Highly effective, readable and short code.
    • Almost everything converts to find a certain element and do something on it. Copyright: Spritle Software Private Limited
  • 5. jQuery Selectors
    • Basic CSS selectors. Example- .myClass, #tableID, a.myLink...
    • Position based selectors: a:first, p:last...
    • a:hidden
    • Showcase example
  • 6. Selectors continued...
    • Multiple elements can also be selected to perform a common function on them.
    • e.g. - $(“div#myDiv, #someID”)
  • 7. DOM Traversal
    • $(“div.myDiv”).parent();- returns the immediate parent.
    • $(“div.myDiv”).next(); - returns the next sibling.
    • $(“h1:first”).parents(); - returns all parents upto the html tag.
  • 8. DOM Modification.
    • $(“div#myDiv”).html(“Some Text.”);
    • $(“table#myTable).append(“<tr> </tr>”);
    • Showcase example
  • 9. Chaining method calls.
    • Most jQuery methods return another jQuery object representing the same collection.
    • Thus on the output of one method other methods calls can be chained. This is one of the powerful features of jQuery.
    • Some methods return a different collection.
    • In such cases .end() method can be used to revert to the previous collection.
    • Showcase example: $('div.section').hide().addClass('gone');
  • 10. Events
    • Events can be fired when an element is clicked, hovered upon, dragged.
    • Default events associated with certain elements can also be changed.
    • Showcase example
  • 11. Animations
    • $(“#myDiv”).show(‘slow/fast’);
    • Showcase Example
  • 12. Ajax
    • $.get();
    • $.post();
    • $.ajax({
    • type: ‘get’,
    • url: '/ajax/method/?parameter=' + param,
    • dataType: 'script'
    • });
    • Showcase Example
  • 13. Plugins
    • Extensive Plugin support for many commonly desired functionalities.
    • Defining custom plugins is also possible with very little effort.
    • Plugin examples: 1. Tablesorter
    • 2. Facebox
  • 14. Extending jQuery
    • jQuery is extensible through plugins, which
    • can add new methods to the jQuery object.
    • UI – Widgets.
    • Showcase example .
  • 15. Disadvantages.
    • Compared to other JavaScript libraries jQuery has fewer utility functions.
    • This issue is countered by using other libraries like Underscore.js which includes many utility functions that Prototype has.
