jQuery UI DotNetNuke integration

by Christoph Herold 3. April 2009 12:04

I just launched a new project at codeplex aiming at the integration of jQuery UI in DotNetNuke: http://jquidnn.codeplex.com/. The first releases are already available in form of DNN module packages containing the core functionality, including infrastructural code to include jQuery and jQuery UI, two web controls for the Tabs and Datepicker widgets, and the smoothness theme.

Also available are module packages for three more themes: Cupertino, UI Darkness and UI Lightness. Further skins are actually quite easy to package and will follow over time, or when someone issues a request for one ;-)

So please, start grabbing the releases and giving me feedback.

DotNetNuke now with jQuery

by Christoph Herold 7. Januar 2009 11:06

I have been using jQuery with DotNetNuke for a while now, and was very happy to finally see it integrated into DotNetNuke. What makes me wonder, is that there is no central method for including it in DNN 4.9.1. The library has been placed into the folder ~/Resources/Shared/scripts/jquery, but the one usage I could find does not use the ClientScriptManager to include the script. Instead, it manually creates a Literal script control. This will cause the script to be included multiple times, if different controls use it simultaneously. Perhaps this will be "fixed" in a future release. Perhaps adding a method to the ClientAPI for including it would be a good solution for a global include mechanism.

New FCKEditorProvider for DotNetNuke

by Christoph Herold 11. August 2008 16:18

A newer (beta) version of the FCKEditorProvider for DotNetNuke has been made available: http://www.dotnetnuke.com/Community/Forums/tabid/795/forumid/127/threadid/247501/scope/posts/Default.aspx

It finally integrates the newest version of FCKeditor, giving you much better styling support and various other features. So far, my tests have been quite positive with the new version.

One thing to note is the bothering "Red title" style, that is configured by default. If you wish to remove it, you can edit the fckconfig.js files located in the provider's "FCKeditor" and "Custom" folders. Just comment out the line that add the style to FCKeditor's custom styles, and you'll be rid of it.

Regards to Mauricio Márquez for his great work on the integration!
