jQuery UI is a collection of GUI widgets, animated visual effects, and themes implemented with jQuery (a JavaScript library), Cascading Style Sheets, and HTML.[5] According to JavaScript analytics service, Libscore, jQuery UI is used on over 197,000 of the top one million websites, making it the second most popular JavaScript library.[6] Notable users include Pinterest, PayPal, IMDb, The Huffington Post, and Netflix.[7]

Both jQuery and jQuery UI are free and open-source software distributed by the jQuery Foundation under the MIT License; jQuery UI was first published in September 2007.[4][8]

Features[edit]

As of the 1.11.4 release:[9]

Draggable, Droppable, Resizable, Selectable, Sortable

Widgets[edit]

All of jQuery UI's widgets are fully themeable using a consolidated, coordinated theme mechanism.[10]

  • Accordion – Accordion containers
  • Autocomplete – Auto-complete boxes based on what the user types
  • Button – Enhanced button appearance, turn radio buttons and checkboxes into pushbuttons
  • Datepicker – Advanced date-picker
  • Dialog – Show dialog boxes on top of other content, easily and robustly
  • Menu – Show a Menu
  • Progressbar – Progress bars, both animated and not
  • Selectmenu – Duplicates and extends the functionality of a native HTML select element to overcome the limitations of the native control
  • Slider – Fully customizable sliders
  • Spinner – Show a Number Spinner
  • Tabs – Tabbed user interface handling, with both inline and demand-loaded content
  • Tooltip – Show a Tooltip

Effects[edit]

  • Color Animation – Animate the transition from one color to another
  • Toggle Class, Add Class, Remove Class, Switch Class – Animate the transition from one set of styles to another
  • Effect – A variety of effects (appear, slide-down, explode, fade-in, etc.)
  • Toggle – Toggle an effect on and off
  • Hide, Show - Using the effects above

Utilities[edit]

  • Position – Set an element's position relative to another element's position (alignment)
  • Widget Factory – Create stateful jQuery plugins using the same abstraction as all jQuery UI widgets

Example[edit]

// Make the element with id "draggable" draggable
$(function () {
	$("#draggable").draggable();
});
<div id="draggable">
	<p>Drag me around</p>
</div>

This makes the div with the ID "draggable" draggable by the user's mouse.
