Top 10- jQuery Tutorials

jQuery

Being a big fan of jQuery I have put together a selection of jQuery tutorials. Tutorials that range from simple tooltips to navigation menus and image galleries. Do you have any favourite tutorials or do you reach straight for the plugins? Please feel free to comment.

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.

Comodo Internet Security Installation Error 1603

Security Padlock

I have been using Comodo Internet Security since it’s initial release and it just keeps getting better and better. However whilst trying to install the most recent version 4.0 which was released on March 03 2010 I encountered an installation error 1603. Naturally I cleared all the junk files, disabled unnecessary services, cleared the registry and still couldn’t get it to work until I came across a handy clean up tool which cleans up leftover data from the previous installations.

Backup Your Firefox Profile Manually

Mozilla Firefox

The browser is one of the most used pieces of software used today and believe me there is nothing worse than losing all of your data if your computer suddenly crashes or your data becomes corrupted. There are tools that will backup your Firefox profiles for you but this can be time consuming. I use a method will backup the entire folder with everything in it from passwords, extensions to favourites and its so simple anyone can do it. I will show you how to do this in Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and also Linux Mint.
