Display Editable Form Data As Regular Tabular Data

Posted · Category: Forms, License Free

CSS Globe has shown us a little trick that you can apply to your forms to enhance user experience. We will display editable form data (indented to be edited, updated) as regular tabular data intended for reading.

This works on most modern browsers with pure CSS, but we need a little bit of Javascript in order to make this work on Internet Explorer though, because of the lack of support for :focus pseudo-class.

How to Turn Long Web Form into a Wizard with jQuery

Posted · Category: Forms, License Free

If you would, for whatever reason, have a large webform all fields should be semantically divided into fieldsets. Each fieldset would clearly describe each group of fields.

So, we can say that each group of fields represent a sub task of a larger task – filling the entire web form. Thus, each sub task can become a step with a description, input fields and navigation that is common for wizard forms – back and next. The entire process can be done in several simple steps.

This detailed tutorial will show you how to turn long webform into a wizard with jQuery. A plugin is also available for download.

CKEditor is a Version 3.0 of FCKeditor. After almost two years of intensive development, the first stable version of CKEditor 3.0 has finally released.

CKEditor is a complete rewrite of our so loved FCKeditor, which got a bit old after six years of great success. Not to say that FCKeditor is doing bad, but there are some new things we could bring to it, and CKEditor is the result of it. There are dozens of new features in CKEditor.

CKEditor is fast to load and fast to use. The development team stayed focused to bring the best performance you can have, using all modern best practices. You’ll be amazed with it.

You’ll note that they have also a brand new UI based on the Kama skin. Other than modern, Kama is colorful like a chameleon, so you can precisely match its color to your needs. This is an innovative and unique feature you’ll find in CKEditor only.

The CKEditor code is also much different now. It’s up to date with the new JavaScript development requirements, offering a rich and powerful integration and interaction API. The editor is totally plugin based, and it can be extended and modified in all senses to fit all needs.

In-Field Labels jQuery Plugin for HTML Forms

Posted · Category: Forms, GPL License, MIT License

In-Field Labels jQuery Plugin is a simple plugin that turns properly formatted HTML forms into forms with in-field label support. Labels fade when the field is focussed and disappear when text entry begins. Clearing a field and leaving brings back the label.

There are some major benefits. The input element or textarea never really has content, so validation can proceed without first checking for the field value. It takes one line of jQuery code to implement. And its compatible with all modern browsers (And even IE6, the “not-so-modern” browser).

iPhone-like Password Fields jQuery Plugin

Posted · Category: Forms, MIT License

Usability suffers when users type in passwords and the only feedback they get is a row of bullets. Typically, masking passwords doesn’t even increase security, but it does cost you business due to login failures.

That’s why Apple implemented an alternative method on iPhone/iPod Touch: passwords get masked while typing but the last character in row is shown in plain text. Compared to common password fields on the web this method improves usability.

Therefore, Stefan Ullrich has developed a dPassword jQuery Plugin for transforming password fields into iPhone-like password fields, which delays password masking. It works unobtrusive too. Non-JS users get the common masked password fields.
