10 jQuery Techniques for Better User Experience

JavaScript is one of the most used web technologies out there. And, why not? It offers so many features that let a web designer improve the user experience.
jQuery is one of those JavaScript libraries that is heavily used by web designers and front-end developers to bring designs to life. It integrates well with web applications, offers excellent animation features, and, most importantly, lets you control individual elements on a web page.

Top 5 Free Courses to Learn jQuery for Web Developers

Hello guys, if you are thinking to learn jQuery and looking for some awesome free resources e.g. books, tutorials, and online courses then you have come to the right place. In this article, I am going to share some of the best, free jQuery courses from Udemy and Pluarlsight which you can take to learn this awesome JavaScript library. In the past, I have also shared some free books and tutorials on jQuery, which complements these courses. You can also take a look at then while learning different parts of jQuery.
Before I share these free courses, let me briefly talk about what jQuery is and why you should learn it. Well, jQuery is a JavaScript library, but, unlike any other library, it is very powerful and makes client-side scripting really easy.

jQuery setTimeout() Function Examples

The JavaScript setTimeout function calls a function or executes a code snippet after a specified delay (in milliseconds). This might be useful if, for example, you wished to display a popup after a visitor has been browsing your page for a certain amount of time, or you want a short delay before removing a hover effect from an element (in case the user accidentally moused out).
Basic setTimeout Example
To demonstrate the concept, the following demo displays a popup, two seconds after the button is clicked.

See the Pen CSS3 animation effects for Magnific Popup by SitePoint (@SitePoint) on CodePen.

From the MDN documentation, the syntax for setTimeout is as follows:
[code language=”js"]
var timeoutID = window.setTimeout(func, [delay, param1, param2, …]);
var timeoutID = window.setTimeout(code, [delay]);

timeoutID is a numerical id, which can be used in conjunction with clearTimeout() to cancel the timer.
func is the function to be executed.
code (in the alternate syntax) is a string of code to be executed.
delay is the number of milliseconds by which the function call should be delayed. If omitted, this defaults to 0.

setTimeout vs window.setTimeout
You’ll notice that the syntax above uses window.setTimeout. Why is this?
Well, setTimeout and window.setTimeout are essentially the same, the only difference being that in the second statement we are referencing the setTimeout method as a property of the global window object.
In my opinion this adds complexity, for little or no benefit—if you’ve defined an alternative setTimeout method which would be found and returned in priority in the scope chain, then you’ve probably got bigger issues.
For the purposes of this tutorial, I’ll omit window, but ultimately which syntax you chose is up to you.

The Evolution of the JavaScript Programming Language

When you look around the software development world today, one language that seems to be everywhere is JavaScript. JavaScript has gained a lot of popularity over the years, and, despite facing various stumbling blocks, this language has gone on to become the most popular language in the world today.
For this reason, I am interested in the evolution of the language. The low points, high points, and its strength. Without further ado, let’s dive into it.

How to Write Your Own jQuery Plugin

For those who don’t know, jQuery is a JavaScript library that comprises of a number of features, and is quite small yet fast. It also comprises of an easy-to-use API that is compatible on all browsers and enables easier HTML traversal, animation, DOM manipulation, and event handling. It is not only extensible but durable. Hence, client-side scripting has become a lot easier since its development.
What Are jQuery Plugins?
jQuery consists of prototype objects which, at some point, may require some manipulation and extension. For the same purpose, jQuery plugins were devised as a way for objects to inherit any additional methods that are added. Not only that, these additional methods are not isolated but called with the rest of the methods (already inherited) when the jQuery object is created. jQuery plugins are available individually in the form of individual methods that exist in the jQuery library. Every method is a plugin. But, in case of something new, the plugin can also be custom created, which is not very difficult a task.

How to Bind the Kendo UI Grid to a GraphQL API

By now you have almost certainly heard of GraphQL, the runtime query language for APIs. With rapidly growing popularity, it is becoming an increasingly adopted standard for API development. This has generated demand for frameworks and UI tools that can easily consume the data from a GraphQL API – just like the Kendo UI components can do, as we provide seamless integration through the DataSource component.
This post provides a comprehensive guide on how to setup the Kendo UI jQuery Grid component to perform CRUD operations through GraphQL queries and mutations. It includes a sample application, code snippets, and documentation resources to get you up and running with Kendo UI and GraphQL.

Develop Your First Google Chrome Extension Using HTML and jQuery

Chrome extensions are small programs (using HTML, JavaScript, jQuery), written basically to add additional functionality to the Chrome browser. You can download and find all Google Chrome Extensions in the Chrome Web Store (formerly the Google Chrome Extensions Gallery). As per Wikipedia, by February 2010 over 2,200 extensions had been published by developers.
If you check the Chrome web store, you will find a lot of Chrome extensions. You can check this out using this link.
