Forms.JS – Unobtrusive Form Elements Styling

Forms.JS is the successor of 6 separate controls for form styling, now consolidated in a single powerful component that will give you total control over the form elements on your page without any additional markup or sophisticated JavaScript. All you have to do is to add a single line of JavaScript in the head section of your webpage, define which elements will be styled, specify skinning region, set a skin, reload the page and leave the rest to Forms.JS. The component will seamlessly add cool Web 2.0 looks to input boxes, buttons, file inputs, checkboxes, radiobuttons and dropdowns.

Forms.JS is included in the latest version of Acid.JS Web 2.0 Component Libary as well, so you can get it along with a bunch of other cool stuff.


Dialogs.JS – Skinnable Browser Dialogs


Say goodbye to the boring default browser dialog boxes you are using on your website or online applications, here is Dialogs.JS!

The component comes with custom alert, confirm and prompt boxes, a couple of handy JavaScript methods that emulate the behavior of the “real” browser dialogs, really small footprint and 12 skins that will fit virtually any design. You get lightbox-style modal overlay, cool buttons, keyboard navigation (Enter and ESC keys), rounded corners input of the prompt… Everything so Web 2.0 and easy to use!

Dialojs.JS is already included in the latest version of Acid.JS Web 2.0 Component Library, so you may get it with a bunch of other cool website widgets.

AJAX Gallery 1.0


Gallery.XML is a lightweight, crossbrowser, skinnable and extremely easy to use component for displaying images in cool Web 2.0 looking style and a lightbox.

The script is so easy to use that it may be up and running in a couple of minutes without writing a single line of complicated JavaScript. All you need to to is to register the runtime script of the component, then edit a simple XML file and add images to the gallery.

This script is included in the latest release of Acid.JS Web 2.0 Component Library.

Acid.JS Component Library 3.7 is Out With 1 Update and New Website
