ImgAreaSelect 0.4

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

Here’s a new release of my imgAreaSelect jQuery plugin. I’ve fixed a few bugs and introduced two new features that have been asked for: the ability to enable/disable the plugin on demand, and to set the color and opacity of the unselected area.

Edit:
There were a few bugs in the 0.4 code (thanks to vivo for catching them quickly), so I’ve made a quick update and released version 0.4.1.

Edit #2:
This is definitely not my lucky day. It seems my quick update was in fact too quick, as the updated version turned out to be broken in IE. I fixed it (and TESTED this time) and made yet another release, so it’s version 0.4.2 now.

Multiple Select Fields

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

I’ve just added a new web development related article on the subject of multiple select form fields. If the topic sounds boring, it probably is, as there’s not much to be excited about checkboxes and such, but I tried to make it at least a bit more attractive by introducing a colorful DHTML example.

The article is still a work in progress, as I intend to add some more information on a couple things (like pre-selecting options and limiting the number of choices), nonetheless I guess it’s mature enough to be brought into the daylight. I’d be glad to know what you think of it, so don’t hesitate to send me some feedback.
