Build a Better User Registration Page with jQuery

Lee Clontz

In this video, produced by our sister company Learnable, you’ll learn the basics of jQuery UI by turning a site registration form into a multipart, tabbed interface that works great with mouse, keyboard or touch. You’ll learn how to properly format the form’s HTML properly for jQuery UI’s tabs, how to implement a unified theme for your UI widgets and how to use jQuery buttons to traverse the form as well as some basic validation.

    Seems that you can use more semantic fieldset markup for the form sections instead of divs.

    If you haven’t done a lot with JavaScript before, this is a great place
    to step off. Web forms can really benefit from a little smart scripting,
    and here, Lee shows you how to use to j Query to add accessible, tabbed
    sections, and even a user agreement check box that needs to be checked
    before the form will be accepted. Useful stuff for most people here.
