Adding Functionality

Posted on March 18, 2012


Adding functionality to webpage using jQuery. JQuery is a concise Javascript library for HTML document traversing, event handling, animation and interactions.

The library is available for download at: To download the file, you click on the download link, and copy the code to your clipboard. Open a new file in your text editor, paste the code, and save it as jquery.js. To test whether or not jQuery is working, you should first include in the library, then call a jQuery function such as hide and a user interaction such as mouseover (can be used within HTML paragraph tags) or onclick to hide text when the text within the tags is clicked.
