About this Book
jQuery UI in Action’s primary purpose is to teach you how to use the jQuery UI library to build rich, user-friendly web applications. The book starts with the basics of creating and modifying widgets, and moves on to a series of complex examples, such as building widgets from scratch, optimizing your applications for production, and even building a complete flight-search application.
This book is organized into three parts.
Part 1 provides an introduction to jQuery UI. Chapter 1 introduces the library itself, with an explanation of what is in the library, what the library does well, and what it doesn’t do well. Chapter 2 explains the ins and outs of widgets, the core building blocks of jQuery UI.
