Yahoo! UI Library adds AutoComplete, Windowing, Menu and More

Category: JavaScript, Library

The Yahoo! team has released another version of the Yahoo! UI library.

I’m very happy to announce today a whole bunch of new stuff in both the Yahoo! Design Patterns Library and the Yahoo! User Interface Library. On the design side, there are more than a dozen new patterns (as well as oft-requested examples for some existing patterns like Tabs and AutoComplete). On the development side, we’ve updated all the existing components and broadened the platform’s reach with several important UI controls. With this release, we’re offering CSS packages for the first time. And, as part of the evolution of our open-source processes, we’ve migrated YUI Library distribution to SourceForge.

New Controls in this Release

Just my 2 cents…

Yaho UI’s Dialog seemed a bit puzzling to me! I couldnt manipulate my code to make it work for multiple usages. I used AJAX. I called the basic dialog the first time, it was fine. Then I tried to call the function with another data source, the basic dialog still held the old data. Strange!!!

Though, overall I am happy to code for with YAHOO UI!
