What is jQuery?
We start the intermediate lessons by examining the methods available for filtering our matched sets. We then take a look at DOM manipulation and how to do inner, outer and wrapped DOM insertion as well as modify and replace DOM elements. Creating visually stunning effects in jQuery is a breeze as we find out when we explore the jQuery methods and properties available to fade, slide and control effects. We finish the intermediate section by exploring the multitude of jQuery general, copy, data and type utilities we can use.
We start the advanced section by looking at Events, which are used to bring our pages to life. jQuery cuts through the browsers differences and makes event usage simple and elegant as we will see when we investigate loading, browser, keyboard, mouse and form events. We continue our investigation of events by looking at the Event Handler Attachments available. We then look at three powerful objects that jQuery provides for us, the Events object, the Callbacks object and the Deferred object. Following on from this we take an in-depth look at ajax starting with the jQuery low-level interface and ajax shorthand methods. We then examine ajax serialization before concluding our ajax studies and the lessons for this side of the site with a look at ajax global event handlers.
