The jQuery UI Feedback plugin I wrote lets you show an informational or error message next to a UI component on your page. Its primary intended use is for AJAX-driven applications, where you want to provide some instant feedback to a user. You can read documentation, download it and try it out at this page on this blog.
I just updated it to provide a common class for each feedback message, named “ui-feedback”. This gives you the ability to turn off existing feedback messages by using this selector:
You might want to do this if multiple feedback messages potentially overlap one another.
Let me know if you find this plugin useful!
This is version 1.0.1. It corrects a bug where the ‘above’ and ‘below’ options did not work, and it also lets you place a message immediately above an element, with the left side of the message area aligned with the left edge of the element itself. I have also updated the demo page to include a demo of using the ‘above’ option, and to style the buttons using the jQuery UI CSS framework. I’ve also update the link to the zip file to download, on this page, to point to the new version.
This plugin lets you write feedback messages anywhere on your page. I usually use it to provide some response from an AJAX call.
Feedback is a jQuery plugin that lets you send feedback to a user in the form of an info message or error message, associated with any page element. It uses the jQuery UI plugin to determine the default styles of the info and error messages, but you can also use your own styles. Complete details, including demo, documentation and downloads are on this page.
