jQuery Impromptu is an extention to help provide a more pleasant way to spontaneously prompt a user for input. More or less this is a great replacement for an alert, prompt, and confirm. Not only does it replace these but it also allows for creating forms within these controls. This is not intended to be a modal replacement, just a quick tool to prompt user input in a fashionable way.

This is a good plugin to replace alert() and confirm() methods using callback functions. Fully stylabe using CSS. Lots of examples are shown in the site. Read more

Building a reusabe font size controller interface using jQuery

Most of the web2.0 design allows the user to change the font size of the main content area. This is indeed a good usability. So I thought, I should contribute something here. The result is a small jQuery code which can be used to generate a font size changer interface.

Only thing you need to make is a holder element for the controller and then call the function like

fontSize("#holder", "#content", 9, 12, 20);
// holder is the id of the element where the font size controller interface will be shown
// content is the id of the element where the font size changes will take place.
// The next three arguments are Minimum font size, Default font size and Maximum font size respectively

Yes, all done and it will automatically generate all required buttons. It also supports jquery cookie plugin. So when you open the page again, the preferred font size will be restored automatically. (Cookie plugin is not required, but recommended)

After the function is called, the controllers will be generated in the specified area like the following.

Advantages

  • Small size, built on jQuery
  • Fully skinnable using css
  • Multiple interface can be used in the same page for two different content areas
  • Support jQuery Cookie plugin for remembering the preferred font size
  • Very easy to use
