Overview


JavaScript, one of the most widely used programming languages in the world, is a key element of today's interactive World Wide Web and plays a critical role in web page authoring. The jQuery library -- a collection of prewritten code that simplifies creating JavaScript applications -- is today's most popular JavaScript library and is in use on more than half of the web's most-visited sites. DEVELOPING WEB PAGES WITH JQUERY shows you how to put the power of the jQuery library to work in developing JavaScript applications. Veteran developer, trainer, and writer Don Gosselin's clear and detailed explanations will teach you the fundamentals of using jQuery to: access and manipulate web page elements and attributes, manipulate Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) properties, create animation and visual effects, handle JavaScript events, simplify form validation and manipulation, add AJAX functionality to your web pages, traverse and manipulate the elements in the XML Document Object Model (DOM), use and develop plug-ins, and much more.
