wphow's picture

If you use jQuery for web development you may encounter some bumps along the way. Save hours searching Internet forums and speed up development time with some basic tips and tricks for:

  • dependent lookups;
  • custom select dropdown options;
  • autocomplete text fields;
  • set value of hidden fields;
  • how to speed up web page loading.


For each of the bullet points, I will go through the basic well-documented approach, show why it does not work, then show the solution. Attendees will see the code and the webpage.
