You have started a fine enhancing of the js functionallity of apex by using jQuery.
Why have you decided using this library?
Do you have some concepts on your enhancements and how to use the apex_lib.js functions for enhancing? What i am currently missing are some simple navigation functions and getter functions when creating a updateable report (e.g. adding a line without roundtrip, better support for async ajax request with command queue, etc.).
forgot about that thread, the reminder mail was going down and down in my inbox :-)
I liked about jQuery that
-) it is quite small (20kb)
-) the chaining of the manipulation
-) the CSS, XPath selection
-) the event handling
-) the ready function which fires before onload
-) and that's primary focus is DOM manipulation and not UI enhancement
I probably could have used Prototype or some of the other frameworks too, but what I have seen they are a little bit bigger or have a different focus.
But I have to confess that I haven't done a lot of investigation, I read the documentation and liked it :-)
