The TYPO3 extension Seminars uses Formidable for rendering forms and some Java-Script wigdets. We're using jQuery for all our JS based scripting and jQuery UI for a few User Interface related purposes. To achieve a consistent look for all JS UIs we wanted to change the pretty unusable and unsexy looking default DHTML Calendar of formidable with the jQuery UI one. 

As the default jQuery UI Datepicker does not support time selection I've added the jQuery Timepicker Addon.


To change the hardcoded formidable rendering I've implemented an own renderlet based upon the example renderlet extension by Jerome Schneider.


I released my resulting extension to the TER as I was asked so in the Mailinglist. Please give feedback or ask a question via email or (better) as a comment down below.





Formidable DATE Renderlet with jQuery support

© jQuery Foundation,

Over a year has passed since I took over the development of Filament Groups Selectmenu plugin for jQuery UI. Since then we made huge changes to the original code base. 130 issues and about 20 pull request have been closed. A couple of new features have been added, too.


A few month ago Jörn from jQuery UI contacted me and asked if I would be able to help pulling my Selectmenu branch to the official jQuery UI repo. I agreed but we decide to build a new version from scratch as the old one has a pretty unclean code base and would need some refactoring anyway.


Based upon jQuery UI Menu and jQuery UI Button the new Selectmenu widget will seamlessly integrate in a few new widget coming soon.


Get the sourcecode at GitHub and make sure to check the Wiki for ToDos and specification:

A few month ago I received somerequests about adding browser history support and browser title support to my jQuery ARIA widgets. As this would be nice feature for both, usability and accessibility, I allocated some time to get this done.

jQuery ARIA with browser history support: tabs, lightbox and sortable tables

Seit diesem Wochenende ist meine erste TYPO3 Extension im TER verfügbar: beautyOfCode Syntax Highlighter


Diese Extension nutzt das jQuery Plugin beautyOfCode von Lars Corneliussen um das mittlerweile recht bekannte Syntax Highlighter 2.0 von Alex Gorbatchev zu implementieren. Bekannt deshalb weil es von einigen Größen eingesetzt wird:, Aptana, Mozilla Developer Center, SitePoint und das Yahoo Developer Network gehören dazu.
