    Chainability (The Magic of jQuery)

    This article is taken from How jQuery Works.   jQuery uses an interesting concept called a "Builder" to make its code short and simple. The Builder pattern is an object-oriented programming design pattern that has been gaining popularity. In a nutshell: Every method within jQuery returns the query object itself, allowing you to 'chain' upon it, for example: $("a") .filter(".clickme") .click(function(){ alert("You are now leaving the site."); }) .end() .filter(".hideme") .click(function(){ $(this).hide(); ...

    JavaScript Timing Events

    This article is taken from W3Schools.   With JavaScript, it is possible to execute some code NOT immediately after a function is called, but after a specified time interval. This is called timing events. It's very easy to time events in JavaScript. The two key methods that are used are: setTimeout() - executes a code some time in the future clearTimeout() - cancels the setTimeout() setTimeout() Syntax var t=setTimeout("javascript statement",milliseconds);  The setTimeout() method returns a value - In the statement above, the value is stored in a variable called t. If you want to cancel this setTimeout(), you can refer to it using the variable name. The first parameter of setTimeout() is a...

    Adding a RadToolTip to a Custom Toolbar Item in the RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX

    Most of the time combining two RadControls together is wonderfully easy. We at Telerik know this; we work hard to have them work together in a way that is both simple and intuitive for developers. But every so often someone asks about hooking up two controls in such a manner that I have to sit back and scratch my head for a few minutes. Thankfully though, the RadControls are flexible enough that I usually can find an answer. Tonight that happened when a customer asked how to add a RadToolTip to a custom toolbar item in the RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX....

    Meet the RadRotator’s Cousin, the RadTicker for ASP.NET AJAX

    I recently posted an in-depth look at the RadRotator for ASP.NET AJAX. I feel it appropriate to follow-up that post with a discussion about another oft-overlooked control in Telerik’s ASP.NET AJAX suite, the RadTicker. The RadTicker is closely related to the RadRotator for ASP.NET AJAX, but boasts its own unique functionality. Whereas the RadRotator is best suited for richer content, such as images and HTML markup, the RadTicker is designed specifically to display text. The RadTicker uses client script to display a single character of text in a given interval, simulating a “typewriter” effect. While it has many of the same...
