Control Yahoo! User Interface Library like a Pro with Packt's new book on YUI

Packt is pleased to announce Yahoo! User Interface Library 2.x Cookbook, a new book which will help developers create modern rich Internet applications using the most powerful components of YUI 2.x.

Online PR News – 31-January-2011 – – Written by Matt Snider, this book will help readers gain a thorough understanding of the YUI tools with plenty of example code to help improve coding and productivity with the YUI Library.

YUI Library is a set of utilities and controls, written with JavaScript and CSS, for building richly interactive web applications using techniques such as DOM scripting, DHTML and AJAX. YUI is proven, scalable, fast, and robust. Built by frontend engineers at Yahoo! and contributors from around the world, it's an industrial-strength JavaScript library for professionals who love JavaScript.

Yahoo! User Interface Library 2.x Cookbook explains in detail, the core features of YUI 2.x and the utilities that the rest of the library depends on. It has recipes covering over twenty-five YUI components, showing readers how to use them and how to configure them to meet their needs while including an additional discussion of each solution. Each of these covered components will have extractable code samples that showcase the common ways in which that component is used.

Each recipe in Yahoo! User Interface Library 2.x Cookbook is presented as a separate, standalone entity and reading of other prior recipes is not required. Readers will understand how YUI components interact with the DOM, and why to design richer user interfaces using YUI buttons and menus. This book will also help readers to simplify the process of retrieving server-side data using AJAX and DataSource while creating sophisticated HTML-based panels, tooltips, and dialogs.

Web application developers with some prior experience with or interest in using YUI 2.x to improve the UI of their web applications will find this book to be an interesting and beneficial read. The book is out now and available from Packt. For more information please visit: -
