In a shocking turn of events, I actually followed all of Programming By Stealth this week! Bart walked us through his solution to last week’s HTML5 Forms Validation homework, and in so doing highlighted some especially clever things he did. I was pretty pleased with my own version of the homework, and in fact, Bart gave me a gold star for one thing I did. Bart also explains how he used CSS to make his form even more readable.
In the second half of the episode, he shows how to use jQuery to improve the forms even more. He demonstrates how certain requirements cannot be met with the built-in forms validation and how we can use jQuery instead. I loved this episode because it tied in our knowledge of jQuery back to HTML forms.
Bart’s most excellent written tutorial can be found at PBS 40 of x – HTML5 Custom Validations with jQuery on bartb.ie.
