Packt is delighted to announce JQuery UI Themes Beginner's Guide, a new book which shows the details of the jQuery UI theme framework by example. Written by Adam Boduch, this book is a step-by-step guide that goes beyond showing how to switch themes in a user interface built with jQuery UI and offers developers a practical guide to designing their own themes and gives them insight into the working of themes. To know more, visit :

jQuery UI provides abstractions for low-level interaction and animation, advanced effects and high-level, themeable widgets, built on top of the jQuery JavaScript Library, that one can use to build highly interactive web applications. All of jQuery UI's widgets are fully themeable using a consolidated, coordinated theme mechanism demonstrated by their ThemeRoller.

JQuery UI Themes Beginner's Guide book starts by explaining about themes in general and why they're important in web applications today. It then covers jQuery UI basics and helps readers get a full understanding of the theme framework. It will also help them understand the details of the ThemeRoller application and how to effectively use this tool to design themes in a timely manner.

Using this book, readers will develop an understanding of the top-level CSS constructs and thus learn how to apply styles to broad portions of the user interface. They will be able to change the look and feel of widgets based on user interaction and application events. After reading the book, developers will not only be well-versed in theming jargon, but also be able to take one look at any jQuery UI application and understand why and how it looks the way it does.

With plenty of examples, screenshots and diagrams, this book is for web application developers and CSS designers who want a better understanding of how to build themes for the jQuery UI toolkit. Readers are expected to have a basic working knowledge of JavaScript and why it is used in web applications. This book is out now and available from Packt.
