jQuery UI Helpers / Version 1.0

Version 1.0 Release Notes

jQuery UI Helpers v1.0 - built on jQuery UI 1.9 - is now available from NuGet.

This is a major upgrade, moving from jQuery UI 1.8 to 1.9 and contains breaking changes. Because jQuery UI Helpers is a set of HTML helpers that configure jQuery UI widgets, its features are mainly determined by jQuery UI. If something is removed from jQuery UI it is also removed from jQuery UI Helpers. In this release:

  • The ThemeSwitcher was removed as it is no longer supported by jQuery UI.
  • The Rotate method was removed from the Tabs widget as it is no longer supported by jQuery UI.

Many methods were marked as Obsolete. These work now but will be removed in a future release. Some of them will not be supported, some are replaced by other methods. You can check all of them on the detailed change log page.

jQuery UI 1.9 also introduced new widgets which are now supported by jQuery UI Helpers. These are the menu, the spinner and the tooltip.

If you are new to jQuery UI Helpers the Getting Sarted page will help to make the first steps.
