jQuery File Upload – With Drag n’ Drop

18th March

jQuery File Upload is a plugin for the popular JavaScript framework that helps handling file uploads.

The plugin is based on open standards like HTML5-JavaScript and No Flash. For legacy browsers it falls back to an Ajaxed-like iframe-PHP solution.

Multiple files can be selected, they can even be drag ‘n’ dropped from the desktop and the upload process can start automatically or with an event (like clicking the “upload” button).

A progress bar can display the status and uploads can be canceled anytime.

It is possible to use multiple instances of the plugin in the same page and jQuery File Upload is compatible with any server-side application platform.

jQuery Gloss Plugin

17th January

It’s lovely to make you webpage interactive. jQuery plugins add effects to multiple elements of HTML. jQuery Gloss adds a Gloss (shining) effect to images by simple and lightweight code.

This effect is added on hover effect (mouseover, mouseout).

This plugin is ~2.2 Kb and it’s simple as:

Add a DIV element to hold the image with class=”gloss”. eg:
<div class=”gloss”><img src=”” alt=”Image gloss effect” /></div>
Include the script file of jQuery Gloss plugin. eg:
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”gloss.1.0.js”></script>
Call the Gloss function. eg:
<script type=”text/javascript”>$(document).ready(function (){ $.gloss(); });</script>
OR
add this before </body>: <script type=”text/javascript”> $.gloss();  </script>

jQuery: Catch Keyboard Events

18th June

Lot of jQuery projects relies on keyboard/mouse event like pressing “p” for previous and “n” for next also using the arrows.

Because this is important, I have managed a code to get the keyboard character on 3 events:
– Keypress
– Keyup
– Keydown

I have created a function to return the key as below:

function getKey(key){
if ( key == null ) {
keycode = event.keyCode; // To Mozilla
} else {
keycode = key.keyCode;
}
// Return the key in lower case form
return String.fromCharCode(keycode).toLowerCase();
}

Now let’s use the events:

/*Keypress*/
$(document).keypress(function (eh){
alert(“Keypress: The key is: “+getKey(eh));
});

/*Keyup*/
$(document).keyup(function (eh){
alert(“Keyup: The key is: “+getKey(eh));
});

/*keydown*/
$(document).keydown(function (eh){
alert(“Keydown: The key is: “+getKey(eh));
});

jQuery Animate

19th May

Here I will mention how to use the jquery animate function and the usability and flexibility of it.
The syntax of this function is:

$.animate(options, settings, callback);
/* you can replace setting with duration (in milliseconds) or words: ‘slow’, ‘normal’ or ‘fast’.
callback is optional */

Below is a list of popular and most used animation:

increasing/decreasing width and height
moving or scrolling html element
changing opacity
scrolling window

Now let me explain each in an example.


Scroll window smoothly using jQuery

26th March

Using jQuery animate() function to do a smooth scrolling:

I have also created a div as follow:

<div id=”scrollToHere”>
Scroll to here
</div>

You need something to run your script. Create a button like this:

<input type=”button” onclick=”scollWin();” value=”Scroll up” />

The jQuery Code will be like this:

function scrollWin(){
$(‘html,body’).animate({
scrollTop: $(“#scrollToHere”).offset().top
}, 800);
}

Here is something to try:

now jQuery window scrolling is done with animation.

Enjoy it..
