The second two of my three article series on jQuery Mobile have been posted to the MSDN Magazine Script Junkie Site. I hope that they are helpful to you.Article 2: More jQuery Mobile
There’s no doubt that mobile Web applications are here to stay. As I said at the start of the previous article in this series, talk to any C-level executive at a major company or any technology startup, and they’ll tell you about mobile apps.
- $.mobile. You’ll learn what the $.mobile object is, how to use it and how to set values globally in an application.
- ListView. We previously looked at the ListView at a high level. In this article I’ll describe more advanced features of the ListView that developers can use to provide the mobile equivalent of the iOS UITableView and the Android Listview.
- Navbar. Native applications typically have a navbar that provides navigation for an application. I’ll go into the more advanced concepts of the navbar, which let you provide users with a consistent navigation experience across an application.
The first article (Introduction to jQuery Mobile) in this series looked at the subject of themes at a high level and at themes available in jQuery Mobile (jQM). In this, the third of three articles on jQM, I show how to build a custom theme using the Theme Roller, as well as look at some custom themes that allow a mobile Web application to look more like an iPhone, Android or Windows Phone application.
