Having checked back at some of my popular PHP and jQuery posts I decided to create WOW playground which unites all of my previous checkboxes and radio button form tutorials into one handy script. I have updated to newer, modern technologies like HTML5, CSS3 and PDO, to handle the database. jQuery and jQuery UI has been updated to the latest versions with a few new features and the odd tweak here and there.

HTML5 and CSS3 have been known to web designers for many years. Unfortunately, due to the lack of browser support, it hasn’t been wildly adopted up until the release of Internet Explorer back in 2011. Internet Explorer 9 still doesn’t have complete support for HTML5 and CSS3. The arrival of the upcoming Internet Explorer 10 will support more elements including CSS transitions, transforms and have full support for offline web applications and form validation. Other browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera have better support. Currently, at the time of writing, there is no browser that has full support yet due to the fact that the specification is still a working draft itself. However, it is estimated that it will not be reaching full specification until 2014. Furthermore, don’t let this deter you from using it, you can start using HTML5 right now so kick it off with some valuable resources.

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.
