jQuery Disable and Enable Form Elements Using a Checkbox

jQuery

Here is a simple little snippet that uses jQuery to enable or disable text input boxes in forms using a checkbox. When disabling the text boxes it prompts you to confirm it so that you don’t accidentally delete your data. This might be useful for forms elements that need to be enabled or disabled when a certain checkbox is checked like in a options page. The code itself is quite self-explanatory but please feel free to ask if you are having any problems.  This script has now been included in wow playground with new and updated features.

PHP and jQuery checkbox array with a hint of Jquery UI

Checkboxes

I have been learning jQuery alongside PHP to help with my event manager project. Here is a tutorial on how to get the values of a checkbox array, post it via a jQuery Ajax call and subsequently delete the values from an MYSQL database. This tutorial also makes use of the jQuery UI which we will use to display our dialogues.  This script has now been included in wow playground with new and updated features.

Getting to grips with PHP Radio Buttons

Radio Buttons

Following on from getting to grips with PHP Checkboxes I decided to write a little tutorial on radio buttons. As you know radio buttons can only have 1 state either on or off and only one can be selected at any one time. Here is a simple tutorial on how to get data from a database, select the radio button, get data from the form and update the database. If you have previously read and completed the setup procedure the process is the same so you may want to go straight to the code.  This script has now been included in wow playground with new and updated features.

Display Your Twitter Posts On Your Web Site!

Twitter

There are lots of resources out there for displaying your latest twitter posts in your website. Some of them require plugins or some may require javascript to work. After trying a few scripts I came across a little PHP script from The Lylo Files that displays up to 20 of your posts on your web site. After using it for a little while I decided to make it more functional.

This script has been depreciated in favor of the the new Twitter API. Check out Display your Cached Tweets Using PHP and OAuth Also checkout WOW-Multi-Twitter 2.0
