jQuery UI using

Once you've downloaded the jQuery UI, you will get a zip archive contains the following files:

  • /css/
  • /development-bundle/
  • /js/
  • index.html

Use jQuery UI on the page

Opened in a text editor index.html , you will see a number of references to external files: themes, jQuery and jQuery UI. Typically, these three files you need to reference the page in order to use the jQuery UI widgets, and interactive components:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/themename/jquery-ui.custom.css" />
<script src="js/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery-ui.custom.min.js"></script>

Once you reference these necessary files, you can add some jQuery widgets to your page. For example, to create a date picker (datepicker) widget, you need to add a text entry box to the page, and then call .datepicker() , as follows:


<input type="text" name="date" id="date" />


$( "#date" ).datepicker();
