Announcing jQuery Mobile 1.4.0 Alpha

Posted on by

The jQuery Mobile team is thrilled to announce the 1.4.0 Alpha release. For this release we focused on performance improvements and reviewing widgets. We also introduced a new default theme and SVG icons. Some of the new features that come with this release are a flip switch widget, a generic filter widget named “filterable”, popups with arrows, tooltips for sliders and we integrated the tabs widget from jQuery UI.

Performance

To improve performance we reduced DOM manipulation. Generation of inner markup for elements styled as butons has been completely removed. In many cases the framework just adds classes to the native element during enhancement and we even reduced the amount of classes that are added by the framework.

Theme inheritance

One of the biggest changes is the way theme inheritance works. In previous versions we used JavaScript to find the nearest parent element with a theme and added theme classes to all elements. This has been replaced by a pure CSS solution where the level of specificity of the selector determines what theme (swatch) is applied. In almost all cases the default for option theme has been removed and widgets get the same theme as their container or page via CSS.

New default theme

This was also a good time to switch to a new default theme with a flat, more modern, design. The number of swatches has been reduced from five to two; a light “A” swatch and a dark “B” swatch. We will update the ThemeRoller soon so you can create your own themes for 1.4.

SVG icons

Not only the theme is new. A big thank you to Glyphish for creating a complete new icon set for jQuery Mobile! These are vector-based SVG icons, but we included a fallback to external PNG icons on browsers that don’t support inline SVG. We are also going to provide additional stylesheets, each with different icon CSS (inline SVG, data-uri PNG, and external PNG) that can be used with the full Grunticon solution.

Please help us test

In the next few weeks we will work on updating the API documentation and the Demo Center, and creating an upgrade guide. While we work on it, this guide will be available as wiki page on the Github repo. Please help us by testing the Alpha version, giving us your feedback, and reporting issues.

Thanks

We want to say thanks to everyone who contributed. Thank you Sven Franck for all your hard work on the new filterable widget and the table widget!

More than 1,500 commits, many issues fixed, countless improvements made. Here is jQuery Mobile 1.4 Alpha!

New features

  • Theming: The active and focus styles are now themeable
  • Links: Deprecated class ui-link. One style for links in body and bars (bar link colors were never themeable in ThemeRoller)
  • Controlgroup: Added option theme
  • Popup: New feature popup arrow
  • Slider: New feature slider tooltip
  • Touch events now have teardown methods
  • New option for taphold event $.special.event.tap.emitTapOnTaphold default = true;
  • New widget Toolbar: replaces page.sections (which is removed) and handles all header and footer bars
  • Fixed Toolbars are now an extension on the toolbar widget
  • Toolbars work outside of pages
  • True persistant Toolbars
  • Textinput: added option corners
  • Slider and Rangeslider: added option corners.
  • New set of vector-based icons from Glyphish with fallbacks via Grunticon
  • Base tag support https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/issues/3978
  • New flip switch widget
  • New filterable widget
  • Integrated UI tabs widget
  • Popup work outside of pages
  • Panel work outside of pages
  • Option wrapperClass to add custom classes to a generated wrapper
  • All widgets (excluding listview, tables, and selectmenu) have options that can be set after the widget has been instantiated
  • All widgets (excluding listview, tables, and selectmenu) have an option named “enhanced” that allows you to provide the markup the widget itself would generate, thus saving startup time
  • Table now also has a rebuild method that makes it possible to dynamically add columns

Changes

  • Theming: The theme swatch for pages does no longer default to “c” but “a”. Dialog overlays still default to “a”. The loader theme defaults to “a” instead of “e”. Headers and footers don’t have default “a” anymore but inherit the page theme. List dividers don’t default to “b” but inherit the list theme. Count bubbles in listviews don’t default to “c” anymore, but inherit from the LI/button/divider. Count bubbles in multiple selects always had theme “c” but now always inherit the theme from the button.
  • Button style: We now use the same padding and icon positioning rules for all elements that are styled as button and changed px values to em values.
  • Option mini: We don’t set specific padding values for ui-mini anymore, but only set a smaller font-size. Because we use em values now, the padding will still be adjusted. Instead of data-mini=”true” you can add class ui-mini to a container. Now it’s also very easy to use a media query to only apply the mini size at a certain screen width.
  • Icons: We use :after pseudo element for icons instead of adding a span with class ui-icon. The icon class (ui-icon-[iconname]) is added to the button.
  • data-add-back-btn now set on toolbar not page
  • Listview filter has been replaced by new generic filter widget (“filterable”)
  • Panel: Always scroll to top when opening a panel, unless it’s a fixed panel

Removal

  • No generating of inner button markup (.ui-btn-inner and .ui-btn-text) anymore. For linked listviews this means the anchor is now the button and no longer get class .ui-link-inherit.
  • Listviews: We no longer add the classes ui-li-has-arrow (list item) and ui-btn-icon-right (list button).
  • Button: Button elements are no longer wrapped in a div. Inputs type submit and reset used to get class ui-submit on the wrapper div. This has been changed to class ui-input-btn and also applies to input type button. The native input element no longer gets class ui-btn-hidden.
  • Form labels: Labels no longer get a class (they used to get the widget class).
  • Listview: Removed nested listview feature (deprecated in 1.3).
  • Dropped support for IE7 and BB5 (now C-grade)

Deprecation

  • Deprecated auto-enhancement of links in toolbars: https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/issues/5933
  • Deprecated class ui-disabled. Use class ui-state-disabled instead.
  • Deprecated class ui-btn-corner-all. One corner class: ui-corner-all (corner radii for buttons have selector .ui-btn.ui-corner-all).
  • Listviews thumbs and icons (small image left): The feature to auto-detect thumbs and icons has been deprecated to improve performance. If a list item (read-only) or button (linked) contains a thumb you have to add class ui-li-has-thumb to the LI. If it contains an icon you have to add ui-li-has-icon to the LI and don’t have to add class ui-li-icon to the image element anymore. Also, the framework doesn’t add class ui-li-thumb anymore in 1.4.
  • Theming inheritance: Deprecated getInheritedTheme(). Theme inheritance is done with CSS now.
  • Deprecated data-role=”field-contain”. Just add class “ui-field-contain”.
  • Icon shadow: Deprecated option iconshadow for buttons and select. You can use class ui-shadow-icon on a container or a button (same as ui-icon-alt and ui-icon-nodisc). Also work with listviews, controlgroups, checkbox/radio, etc. that didn’t have option iconshadow.
  • The second pagebeforechange has been replaced with pagebeforetransition. Both will be triggered for compatibility
  • Deprecated current persistent fixed toolbars in favor of true persistent (outside page)
  • Deprecated current dialog widget. Dialog will become an option in the page widget.
  • Deprecated current slider widget. We are going to refactor or replace the slider widget in next version.
  • Deprecated input element generation for filter
  • Deprecated filterPlaceholder option for filterable
  • Deprecated current behaviour of stripping query strings from hashes. Starting in 1.5 we’ll be following spec on hashes and provide a hook to handle custom navigation.

Project leadership

Posted on by

Today we’re announcing a change to our project leadership. Since the start of the jQuery Mobile project in 2010, Todd Parker has been the project and design lead. After three years at the helm, he has decided to step aside as lead but will continue to participate as a team member with a focus on design and outreach.

We’re thrilled to announce that Jasper de Groot, a longtime team member, will be stepping in as the new jQuery Mobile project lead. Jasper is deeply knowledgeable and an all around great guy and we look forward to him leading the charge.

The most important part of any open source project is having a great team and we have that in spades with jQuery Mobile. We want to take a moment to recognize all the fantastic people on the mobile team, past and present, who have worked tirelessly over the last few years: Ghislain Seguin, John Bender, Gabriel Schulhof, Anne-Gaelle Colom, Alexander Schmitz, Scott Jehl, Mat Marquis, Kin Blas, Jason Scott, Tyler Benziger, Ralph Whitbeck, and over a hundred contributors from the community.

With this change in leadership, we’re also moving the Mobile and UI projects closer with more shared code, team members, meetings and a common destiny. We’ve been collaborating closely with Scott González, Jörn Zaefferer, and the rest of the UI team and look forward to a more unified approach going forward.

The team has been hard at work on the upcoming 1.4 release, which is nearing the alpha stage. It is focused on performance, API and code cleanup, and a new theme. Look for that release very soon.

Change log

Button

Removed duplicated code in butonMarkup. Title is set twice for element when iconpos option is set. Thanks stforek!

buttonMarkup: Do not allow a value of null to end up the value of an attribute, because it gets stringified as “null”

Removed border-radius inherit for ui-btn-text (Fixes #5709) – added rule to listview because that’s the only place where we need this.

Checkboxradio

Add reset handling via $.extend, not $.widget to avoid additional subclass depth

Collapsible Set (Accordion)

addFirstLastClasses: Add it to widgets via $.extend, not $.widget because it does not use any widget factory features.

Controlgroup

addFirstLastClasses: Add it to widgets via $.extend, not $.widget because it does not use any widget factory features.

Dialog

Fix setting dialog options other than “closeBtn”. Thanks jdknezek!

Fixed Toolbars

Fixed toolbar: changed hideDuringFocus logic to fix interaction with on-screen keyboard. (Fixes #4113) and an issue on Android native browser.

Page content’s padding is not adjusted when fixed header elements changes its height (Fixes #5619) – the first argument of updatePagePadding is expected to be a page, but when it is called from the throttledResize binding, it ends up as an event object, and the padding was being set on that instead of the page. This adds a check to ensure the arg is a page before setting its padding.

Listview

Listview filter: Check if var listview is defined. (Fixess #5696 and #5643) – The listviewcreate event bubbles up which causes an error if a listview is nested in an UL or OL without data-role="listview".

addFirstLastClasses: Add it to widgets via $.extend, not $.widget because it does not use any widget factory features.

Ordered list numbering, display is not correct when adding additional tags (Fixes #1609) – Added style for ordered list with formatted content.

Navbar

Clicking a currently active navbar tab removes ui-btn-active class and styling (Fixes #5707) – Changed active state logic. Removed workaround for #1181. Fixed that issue by addressing the actual cause: event.target returns ui-btn-inner instead of the anchor

Navigation

Simplify code for getAjaxFormData (Fixes 5710). When submitting a form via GET, strip query off URL before creating new query string..

Added “contentType” to settings for $.mobile.changePage with “data” argument. Thanks aristotelos!

loadPage: update to account for if the page is prefetched done update basetag (Issue #5677) – Prefetching pages from other directories offsets -tag

Support: Turn off pushState inside FF iframes

When submitting a form via GET, strip query off URL before creating new query string. (Issue #5710).

https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/commit/2d7bebe060d5edfac7d8787d7b1c08a8e5746da5“>Issues with history disabled with popups. (Issue #5775). If the default is prevented on the originalEvent of “navigate”, do not go into _handleHashChange.

Removed extra function in transition “`releasePageTransitionLock“` sets “`isPageTransitioning“` to false;
So no need to set is here as “`releasePageTransitionLock“` is called. Thanks poonkave!

Panel

Workaround for bug in Firefox 19.x/Mac with native select in hardware accelerated panels (Fixes #5753). – make "-moz-transform: none;" override non-prefixed prop/val (FF 16+). Thanks @jaxtheking!

Panel: Visibility: hidden for closed panels. (Issue #5652). This prevents focus on links in closed panels when using the tab key.

Call positionPanel() before we start opening the panel. – This prevents a vertical scrollbar on the page div when opening a long panel on a short page.

Unset transform translate3d for FF where possible. (Fixes #5753). We don’t need translate3d(0,0,0) for hardware acceleration in case of FF and it causes problems with selects due to a FF bug.

Fix for panel Flickering on iOS and Android (Fixes #5831) – Adding 3D for reveal panel content and page sections in content wrap to kick in hardware acceleration.

Only set a default min-height for the page for panel consistency. (Fixes #5755) – resetActivePageHeight() only overrides the page min-height. Setting this for ui-mobile causes issues on small screens.

Fixed typo in panel code – Fixes _panelInner

Set max-height for closed panel (Fixes #5843) - Page div gets a vertical scrollbar on IE9 if panel is longer than page content.

Give content wrapper a min-height on IE7 (Fixes #5607). Because of IE7′s min-height bug, the content wrapper doesn’t inherit the min-height of the page. On short pages you see the page background below the content.

Popup

Text input in popup doesn’t loose focus (Issue #5706) – When focusing on the container, do not bounce focus to an element inside it even if such an element is available.

Range slider

Add form reset via $.extend, not $.widget.

Force update on mousedown to prevent situation where user has typed in input but input has not yet blurred (Fixes #5644) – Rangeslider makes FF (Mac OS) pause for few sec and throw error “too much recursion” when manually enter right value less than left one and click middle slider area

Update highlight on form reset (Fixes #5773) - Rangeslider layout breaks upon form reset.

Select menu

Add reset handling via $.extend, not $.widget to avoid additional subclass depth

Blur after change to make hideDuringFocus work correctly on Android/Chrome (Fixes #5514)

Slider

Add reset handling via $.extend, not $.widget to avoid additional subclass depth

Slider: drag should start only for left mouse button. Thanks stforek!

Account for mouse and touch input event differences “`event.which““ for“ mousedown“` can be 0 or 1, because it is 0 on mobile and 1 (left mouse button) on desktop

https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile/commit/949a16a880f06c71bc8277fdcdd46520a4a9355c“>Flip swith style issues inside a table cell. (Issue #5809) Reset unnecessary clearfix for the flip toggle switch.

Style tweaks for missing border for native range control (Fixes #5846) – Switch to border-width: 0 instead of border: none for the input to make it easier to restore the border if you want.

Tables: Reflow and Column Toggle

Added missing refresh method for reflow and column toggle tables (Fixes #5842 and #5841) – This method wasn’t implemented fully for 1.3.0 but was documented in the API so we have now added this capability for both table modes. Thanks frequent!

Text Inputs & Textareas

Improved vertical alignment of clear button in mini sized text inputs (Fixes #5840)

Textinput: height correctly calculated (without extra padding) for box-sizing. Thanks jhogervorst!

Automatic resizing now works for disabled textareas with pre-filled values. Thanks jhogervorst!

Theme

Remove “px” from zero values in CSS. Saving bytes. Thanks nschonni!

Transitions

Removed animation-fill-mode properties to improve animations in Android 4.x. (Issue #5679)

Slide transition not working properly on iOS (Fixes #5764) – Use translate3D instead of translateX for slide transition. Fix for iOS 6.

1.1 RC2 & 1.1 stable: Select buttons are not full or 60% width in header ui-bar (Issue #3983) – Fixes #3983 – Changed display inline-block rule to only be applied to buttons that are direct children of the header/footer.

Addresses issue #4540; an alternate approach to af46c6c40725f15b6d3502449df357815b39940d

Input submit lacks 100% width when placed in fieldcontain with .ui-hide-label on wider screens (Issue #4705) – Button: Submit buttons should be full width when label is hidden. Fixes #4705 – Input submit lacks 100% width when placed in fieldcontain with .ui-hide-label on wider screens.

Only set margin left/right for buttons that are immediate children. To avoid those margins override margins of buttons that are part of other widgets.

Controlgroup: Horizontal controlgroup shouldn’t have margins in header (Issue #4713) – Button: override default margin if controlgroups or form elements have class ui-btn-left/right. Fixes #4713 – Controlgroup: Horizontal controlgroup shouldn’t have margins in header.

Reverting changes of commit c71642b because it has downsides (select and checkbox/radio buttons don’t get margin because they are wrapped in a div)

Checkboxradio

Request: mini-Option in checkboxradio & textinput (Issue #4070) – Checkboxradio: Allow to set option mini programmatically. Fixes #4070.

Collapsible

Collapsible iconpos via mobileinit differs from documentation. (Issue #4899) – Fixes #4899 (cherry picked from commit 8756bd2d2b49c0ba4881e57d3c8282f3153a81c1)

Fixed corner styling of legends as heading in a collapsible set.

Made non-inset listviews exactly fit inside ui-collapsible-content.

Controlgroup

Calling controlgroup constructor causes fieldset width to shrink (Issue #4716) – Controlgroup: Prevent the controls from being wrapped multiple times. Fixes #4716 – Calling controlgroup constructor causes fieldset width to shrink.

Horizontal alignment bug with jQuery mobile 1.1.1 (Issue #4765) – Controlgroup: keep the possibility to center the controls with vertical-align property. Fixes #4765 – Horizontal alignment bug with jQuery mobile 1.1.1

Vertical-align middle to prevent the small bottom margin that some browsers add because of display inline-block.

Dialog

Close button in dialogs does not work on Android using phone gap and JQM 1.1.1 or 1.2.0 (Issue #4950) – bstract backward movement in history, Fixes #4950

Rewrote CSS (same styling, better construction). Also prevents additional margin-top, just when screen height is little.

The rules for dialog sections should only apply to immediate children. Additional fix for #4699: when using the Download Builder the CSS could be reordered which eliminates the override.

When hash listening is disabled and going to the previous page during close, correctly construct the URL for the previous page from the urlHistory entry and indicate that changePage is to go back in urlHistory rather than adding a new entry

Fixed Toolbars

iOS 6 fullscreen: page can be panned left and right (wider than the screen?) (Issue #5155) – Fixed toolbars: higher specifity for border left and right 0 rule. Fixes #5155

Merge pull request #5262 from arschmitz/issue-5261

Refactor to addClass to avoid array alterations/joins

Select menu data-placeholder not working with jQM 1.1.1 (Issue #4696) – correct id for select test fixture, Fixes #4696

Selects zoom page when tapped in iOS6 (Issue #5041) – Addresses #5041. Event timing difference in iOS 6 was causing zoom to be disabled and immediately re-enabled prior to the zoom taking place.

Simplify button text method, handle persisting option class for multiple selects

The button’s text should preserve the original css class of the select and the selected option. This way you can customize it with i.e. images.

jQuery Mobile 1.3.0 Released

Posted on by

The jQuery Mobile team is excited to announce version 1.3.0. This release is focused on elevating responsive web design (RWD) and brings lots of cool new widgets including panels, dual handle range sliders, and two different responsive table modes. Try it now!

We’ve also been doing a lot of work on re-factoring our AJAX nav system to make is easier to use and more consistent across browsers. We’re also retiring the old demos & docs and launching an API documentation site and all new demo site.

We’d like to thank the community, sponsors and most of all our amazing list of more than 200 contributors who have supported and guided the project. We encourage you to participate wherever you can, you input and help are always appreciated.

KEY CHANGES

1.3: A responsive focus

Since the inception of the jQuery Mobile project, we have embraced the idea of designing for all devices and platforms in a “One web” approach. To that end, we built everything on a progressive enhancement foundation and every widget is designed to be 100% width to fit within a flexible or responsive grid.

jQuery Mobile-first

jQuery Mobile is also designed and fully tested to work not just on mobile phones, but tablets and even desktop browsers. Think of it as mobile-first, not mobile only. In fact, in our next release we’re going to be starting the process of integrating closer with the jQuery UI with the goal of having even more shared code and conventions. The UI tabs widget will be the first to be ported into our library and theming system.

We’ve seen the question “What should I use: RWD or jQuery Mobile?” many times on Twitter and our response is an unqualified “both”. Think of jQuery Mobile as a set of touch-friendly UI elements that are designed to fit within your responsive design. Even at 1.0, our demos & docs used media queries for a responsive experience, but we decided that we could do a better job helping people use responsive design techniques in their own projects.

Our focus for the 1.3 release has been to educate the community on responsive web design (RWD) by adding responsive documentation and demos that explain key concepts and also by adding new widgets like responsive tables, panels and grids that make it easy to build responsive sites and apps.

Bundling breakpoints

Media queries are a difficult thing for any framework to include in the codebase because responsive is all about designing for your specific content. For that reason alone, it’s impossible to pick a single “ideal” breakpoint that will work for everyone.

For example, in our responsive table widget we need to select a screen width to switch between the tabular and stacked presentation for reflow mode. That breakpoint width will completely depend on both the visual design (typography, other layout elements) and the content (number of columns, content length). To address this, in the docs for each responsive widget, we spend a lot of time explaining how to write a custom breakpoint that will be tailored to your unique needs.

Breakpoint classes to the rescue

The flipside is that people use a framework because they want things to be easy and it’s hard to explain that a responsive widget won’t work at all until you write a bunch of CSS. So the compromise we took for responsive widgets is to include a single breakpoint “preset” in the structural CSS that we hope will be useful in a fair amount of typical situations. This breakpoint is applied by adding a class like ui-responsive to the widget markup to opt into the breakpoint. This opt-in is important because overriding a breakpoint baked into the CSS is very cumbersome if you want to use a custom breakpoint — you’d need to negate all the CSS rules from our breakpoint before adding your own.

We think this strikes a good balance between convenience and educating folks on how to use media queries. When we finalize 1.3 in a few weeks, we’ll accompany this with an all-new demos site that will have RWD tutorials and lots of cool demos showing off how to write custom styles and breakpoints to deeply customize jQuery Mobile.

New Widget: Panels

One of the most common mobile UI patterns we see right now are Facebook-style panels that open to reveal a menu, form or other content. We spent a lot of time prototyping different ideas and are really happy with our new panel widget. It offers a ton of flexibility. Panels can be positioned on the left or right of the screen and be placed flexibly in the HTML source order.

There are three different ways a panel can animate open. The default reveal display slides the page away to show the panel beneath, the push display animates both the panel and page, and the overlay display places the panel on top of the page. Panels can be closed by swiping, tapping onto the page, or hitting the Esc key on the keyboard.

To take this widget responsive, it’s easy to add media queries to make the panel stay open at wider widths instead of auto-closing when you click on the page content. This makes this panel more like a collapsible column, like the folder list in a mail program. We’ve included a breakpoint preset to add this behavior by adding a class to the page container. Here’s an example of a typical panel setup with a left nav panel and right panel with a form.

For such a simple looking widget, panel were really challenging to get right across all our platforms. We ended up going through four different re-factors leading up to beta in order to get the animations as smooth as possible and are really happy with the result. In the new docs, there are examples of how to apply custom panel styles and open panels on swipe.

New: Responsive tables

There are a lot of possible ways to handle tabular data in responsive designs. We’ve decided to tackle two different responsive table modes in 1.3, each with its own strengths and uses.

The reflow table mode swaps to a stacked label/data style presentation at narrow screen widths and best for situations where the content length is fairly long and comparing data across rows in a table is less critical. For example, a product or movie list might be a good choice for reflow mode.

Reflow table API docs >

The column toggle table mode hides columns at narrower page widths according to a priority you set on each column as a sensible default to ensure that the table fits on-screen. A dynamically generated column chooser popup allows the user to select which columns they want to see for full control. This mode is best for situations where comparing data across rows and columns is critical. For example, a complex table of financial data might be a good choice for column toggle mode.

Column toggle API docs >

We’ve built some cool demos showing how you can customize these basic table tools to make a comparison chart or present complex financial data with grouped headers and more.

New: Range slider

Adding support for dual handle sliders for collecting range values has been a popular request and we’re happy to add this new widget in 1.3. The new dual handle range slider starts with a pair of HTML5 range inputs and essentially two sliders with a shared track. All the normal slider options work with ranges: mini sizing, theming, etc.

We’ve also refined the size and styling of the inputs that accompany sliders to make them integrate better visually and leave more room for the slider. The inputs are now mini sized with bold text and no border or spinner arrows (seen in desktop browsers).

All sliders now respect step values smaller than whole numbers which is great for scientific and financial applications that need inputs that capture values to the 0.1 or 0.01 level of accuracy. Slider behavior has been refined so dragging will snap to the closest step position to provide better feedback.

Range slider API docs >

New: Responsive grids

The cornerstone of any responsive design are responsive grids. We believe that the best grid systems are content-specific and not something that can be easily generalized into a framework but for people using our simple grid blocks, there are now detailed instructions on how to create your own media queries to adjust grids at various breakpoints.

We’re also shipping with a breakpoint preset that can be applied by adding a class to your grid wrapper. This will apply a CSS breakpoint at narrower screen widths that stack all the grid blocks instead of floating them. This is a simple way to make your grids a bit responsive and fit better on phones.

Grid API docs >

Navigate event and method

There are two new additions to the navigation functionality in jQuery Mobile. A navigate event that normalizes the URL alteration events hashchange/popstate, and a $.mobile.navigate method that allows users to receive extended traversal information in navigate bindings (eg, directionality).

The navigate event is a lightweight attempt to unify bindings to a browser’s URL alteration events hashchange and popstate. It also handles differences in the way setting the hash on the location object interacts with the two browser events (ie, stop the world popstate triggering), and provides event hooks to control the event lifecycle.

The $.mobile.navigate method forms the bulk of the new functionality. By using the $.mobile.navigate method to do URL manipulation instead of doing it directly with the location object, replaceState, or pushState you get history management and support for both modes of URL state tracking. The history management provides a state object to navigate event bindings whether the browser supports the new history API or not. It also contains the logic to determine whether navigation is moving forward or back in the browser history.

Both the event and the method are available as modules apart from other navigation functionality in jQuery Mobile, with minor dependencies on other parts of the library. More info can be found in the navigation page and teh issue for this refractor.

Navigate API: Event and Method

Page transitions: Support for IE10/WP8

Our CSS keyframe animations were written with vendor prefixes to date, but we’ve now added non-prefixed keyframe rules to bring transition support for IE10/WP8 and all future browsers. This also required updating the 3D support feature tests.

Listview: two new ways to make into an auto-complete

Everyone loves the listview filter feature and we heard quite a few requests to make this work as an autocomplete. Rather than create a new widget, we found two clever ways to make the current listview more powerful.

First, we’ve added the filter reveal feature makes is easy to build a simple autocomplete with local data. When a filterable list has the data-filter-reveal="true", it will auto-hide all the list items when the search field is blank and will display matching items as the user types into the search field. The data-filter-placeholder attribute can be added to specify the placeholder text for the filter. Any listview filter with a lot of items may be slow to perform on a mobile device so we recommend using this feature for a relatively small number of items.

To use the listview filter as an autocomplete that taps into remote data sources, you can use the listviewbeforefilter event to dynamically populate a listview as a user types a search query. This is useful when you have a very large data set like cities, zip codes, or products that can’t be loaded up-front locally. Use the view source button to see the JavaScript that powers this demo.

We’ve added corner and shadow options for inset listviews for consistency with other widgets and made it possible to set theme on list dividers via the data-divider-theme attribute. On mobile devices, when using a listview filter, the submit button on the on-screen keyboard will now blur the input to dismiss the keyboard to improve usability.

Dialog: close button option for control

If the dialog has a header the framework will automatically add a close button at the left side of the header. You can now change the position by adding data-close-btn="right" to the dialog container.

If you don’t want a close button in the header or prefer to add your own custom close button, you can use data-close-btn="none".

Dialogs now have a corners option like other widgets to control whether rounded corners are applied.

Popup: dismissible option

We’ve heard requests to prevent the click-out-to-close behavior of popups to make them modal. To address this, we’ve added a new dismissible option so you can add the data-dismissible attribute to a popup container. When set to false, the popup won’t close when you tap outside it onto the page.

Inputs: clear button option, support for file inputs

We’ve added a new feature to let you add the clear button we originally created for search inputs to any input type (text, date, number, etc.) by adding the data-clear-btn="true" attribute. The text for this clear button can be customized via the data-clear-btn-text="clear input" attribute. Search buttons have the clear button by default but can be controlled by this option. Note that this is available for all the input types except for textareas.

Now that file input types are becoming more supported by mobile platforms, we’ve added automatic styling for these as part of jQuery Mobile. Browser support for styling these is surprisingly good and even the clear button option seems to work with these on better browsers.

In addition, we’ve made lots of small improvements to inputs: fixed the height and alignment of text inputs on IE9/WP, textarea auto-grow now also works when you paste text, and text inputs now work much better with multibyte strings.

Selects: themable optgroups, header position support

If you’re using selects with custom menus, we’re fixed some focus issues and made optgroup themeable in custom menus via the new data-divider-theme option. We’ve also made selects work nicely inside headers when positioned with the ui-btn-left or ui-btn-right classes.

Button: programatic theme updates

It is now possible to change button‘s data-theme programatically via _setOption.

Collapsibles: corner option

We’ve added a new corners option for inset collapsibles and accordions (collapsible sets) to make this consistent with other widgets.

Fixed header improvements & extension

Fixed toolbars are tricky business with all the browser bugginess. Since 1.2, we’ve closed 37 fixed toolbar issues including the 1px jitter when scrolling, Android 2.x transition bugs, on-screen keyboard and input focus bugs, and iOS next/prev form controls causing the fixed header revealing itself.

Since the majority of these fixes are for older, but popular versions of Android 2.x and iOS, we’ve packaged these fixes and workarounds into an extension to fixed toolbars called fixedToolbar.workarounds.js that can be omitted in the download builder if you’re targeting only newer mobile browsers to save bandwidth and complexity.

Controlgroup is now a widget

We’ve upgraded controlgroup from a function into a proper widget so it has a full set of options (mini, shadow, corners, etc.) and a create event to help with enhancement.

Controlgroup API >

Less JS, More CSS

In 1.4, we’re planning on dramatically simplifying the amount of JavaScript we use to modify markup or apply classes, and instead use forward-looking CSS techniques which will be more performant. In 1.3.0, we switched away from our fairly complex JS-based logic to apply corner classes and instead use CSS inheritance for corner styling. As part of this process, we have removed the corner classes (ex. corner-top, corner-bl) from theme.css since this can be done with CSS now and it saves us valuable bandwidth and complexity.

Removing these classes and JS logic yielded substantial savings: roughly 1k (gzipped) from the library. We look forward to much bigger changes like this in 1.4.0.

Icons: New icons, ability to switch color and remove the disc

We’ve had a lot of requests to add specific icons to our icon sprite and with the current sprite-based approach, we’ve been trying to keep the set pretty simple and make it easy to use 3rd party sets. However, we realized that we need the now standard “3 bar” icon to accompany the new panels to support people using these for menus. While we were at it, we added a edit icon (pencil) because this was a very popular request.

The theme system always had a white and black icon set but it required a bit of CSS to switch between colors. Now use class ui-icon-alt to switch from the white to black icons in the default theme (configurable via ThemeRoller). If you don’t need the dark circle behind the icons, simply add the ui-icon-nodisc to the element or its container to remove the icon background. In keeping with our theme of using less JS, you’ll notice both of these features are classes, not data-attributes to reduce the script overhead.

In 1.4, we’re looking at re-vamping our theming and icon system and hope to be switching to SVGs with a PNG fallback which will make it easier to offer a larger icon set and maintain the best quality since we will be working with vectors.

Swipe event extensibility

The swipe event can now be extend to add your own logic or functionality. The following methods can be extended:

  • $.event.special.swipe.start – This method recieves a touchstart event and returns an object of data about the starting location.
  • $.event.special.swipe.stop – This method recieves a touchend event and returns an object of data about the ending location.
  • $.event.special.swipe.handleSwipe – This method recieves the start and stop objects and handles the logic for and triggering for the swipe events.

We’ve also been building some real-world swipe demos like the swipe page nav and the swipe listview item to delete.

New demos site: Launching today for 1.3.0

The demos and docs grew organically out of our original development work for 1.0 and it was easy to find the information you needed. With 1.3, we’ve been hard at work building whole new API site (see below) and companion demo center.

The widget reference is designed to make it easy to quickly browse every widget and variation and grab the code via the an integrated ‘view source’ tool. There is an demo showcase that shows you how to customize and extend the framework and a Q&A section that covers common issues and solutions.

Navigation is now much improved with a navigation panel with quick access to all widgets, a global search, and a panel to jump to a section within a page. If you are interested in helping us improve the demos by contributing fixes, demos or Q&A pages, please let us know or submit a pull request.

New API site: Launching today for 1.3.0

Our current demo and docs format has mixed reviews: some folks like our simpler, tutorial style docs while others have said that it’s hard to just get all the info they need quickly.

To address this, we’ve been working hard on porting all our docs over to the same API style API format as jQuery core and UI. This will provide a complete reference for every option, method and event in one centralized, searchable place. Since the docs are all XML-based, you’ll be able to remix them in any way you want for complete flexibility.

We’d like to take a moment to thank team member Anne-Gaelle Colom who has spent an incredible amount of time over the last year building these docs from scratch and we really appreciate her dedication.

The new API docs are in beta now and when we hit 1.3 final, we’re going to switch over to those as our authoritative place for API info. Our plan is to retire the current docs and have an all-new demos site to accompany the new API docs.

Support for jQuery 1.9.1 (and 2.0.0)

jQuery Mobile 1.3.0 supports versions of jQuery core 1.7.2 – 1.9.1 and we’re actively testing the upcoming 2.0 version too. We will be keeping in sync with their releases to let you take full advantage of the new goodness.

Nested listviews: Now deprecated, will be removed in 1.4.0

We are depreciating the nested list feature now and will be dropping support for this in 1.4.0. Nested lists auto-generate pages based on nested UL structures but these have a number of important drawbacks. First, these generated pages complicate the AJAX navigation system and introduce a wide range of edge cases (and bugs) that make it impossible to maintain with our navigation model. Second, these dynamic pages are of limited value because they can’t be controlled without introducing a templating engine so they are not flexible enough to be useful without adding a lot of functionality.

The same effect can be achieved by creating a multi-page document which give you full control of the page layout and styles. The nested listview plugin will be removed in 1.4.0 and moved to an external repo for those that still want to access the code.

Supported Platforms: Always Expanding

Our test lab has grown to over 70 phone, e-readers and tablets over the past few years. Luckily, our dedication to web standards and feature detection has meant that most new devices “just work” when they arrive. As of 1.3.0, we’ve added a few notable A grade platforms into testing rotation: BlackBerry 10, IE10 and Microsoft Surface RT, WP7.8, Kindle Fire HD (7″ and 10″), and more.

Upgrade notes

  • We are depreciating the nested listview feature and will be dropping support for this in 1.4.0.
  • We have removed the corner classes (ex. ui-corner-top, ui-corner-bl) from theme.css since this can be done with CSS now and it saves us valuable bandwidth and complexity.
  • All links containing a hash were truncated at the hash and then appended to the current base tag value. This was a blanket solution for dialogs and nested listviews. As of 1.3.9, we will now only apply this to dialogs and nested listviews by looking for &ui-page and &ui-state. All other urls will be allowed to pass through normally.
  • AJAX nav – iOS 4 will now receive hash-based navigation only because of it’s buggy history implementation.
  • We changed the media query for the HD icon sprite to include devices with a slighty lower resolution which should make graphics crisper in some devices.
  • Inputs are now always wrapped in a div. This fixes the alignment of full width inputs on IE7/8 and WP7 + input type color on Chrome
  • Slider: we modified the style of the input next to the slider to make it mini sized, bold font-weight, no border and no spinner.
  • Fixed headers: an optional extension for browser-specific workarounds is available.
  • Multipage documents result in a sluggish back button performance on IE7 due to browser issues. The back button still works, but you have to click it several times to go back a single step in the history. The further you try to go back in history the more work you have to do for a single backwards step. Single-page AJAX-linked documents are a better approach if IE7 support is essential.

Change Log for 1.3.0

Button

.buttonMarkup() doesn’t work correctly while binding with the button itself (Issue #3637) – Track addition/removal of up/down/hover classes to reconstruct button state during re-enhancement

Button inner elements corner styling inheritance

Changing button’s data-theme programatically (Issue #4317) – Implement _setOption()

Do not assume that a button’s className will contain only classes assigned by buttonMarkup()

IE9 , if custom SELECT button is on the right border of the window, it expand the select menu over the whole window width
(Issue #4577) – Button: width auto for div’s with class ui-btn-text to prevent custom selects breaking on IE.

No need to add class ui-btn-corner-all to inner element because it inherits the border-radius.

Prevent margin top/bottom on selects, checkboxes and radio buttons with class ui-btn-left/right.

Checkboxradio

Adding new behaviour to widget definition

Checkboxradio not losing its icon when added to controlgroup post-enhance (Issue #5264) – Checkboxradio: hiding the icon in horizontal controlgroups with CSS instead of JS.

Determination as to whether the widget is inside a horizontal controlgroup or not needs to be made during refresh(), not during _create(), because otherwise an already-enhanced checkbox added to a horizontal controlgroup will not start using the activeBtnClass to render its checked state and neither will checkboxes initially added to a vertical controlgroup which is then converted to a horizontal controlgroup

.live() and checkbox labels
(Issue #2383) – Checkboxradio: allow vclick event to bubble.

No need to set margin for the buttons because we already set it for .ui-btn and .ui-btn-mini. Repeating it makes it only more difficult to override when needed.

Remove fieldset from being a form

Request: mini-Option in checkboxradio & textinput (Issue #4070) – Allow to set option mini programmatically.

Restore active state for buttons in horizontal controlgroups

Simplifying code in light of the fact that CSS maintains whether the icon is shown or not (as a function of whether the parent controlgroup is vertical resp. horizontal)

Turn off icon if part of a horizontal controlgroup

Use .buttonMarkup() to update icon instead of class manipulation

Collapsible

Added corner styling reset to collapsible CSS to avoid conflicts when an enhanced collapsible is appended to a set.

Added info and demo of collapsible coner styling to the docs.

Added info and demo of corner styling to the docs.

Added option corners to option page and data- attribute reference.

Added option corners to option page and data- attribute reference.

Added pure CSS corner styling for collapsible and collapsible set

Adjusted selector to avoid problems with nested collapsibles.

Adjusted to CSS for collapsibles without icon.

Also add “themed-content” class to non-inset collapsibles for collapsible lists border styling.

Cleanup code indent

Collapsible iconpos via mobileinit differs from documentation (Issue #4899)

Maintain ui-first-child and ui-last-child during refresh()

Make option corners work on a set.

Move default values from collapsedIcon / expandedIcon / iconPos in the “options” section of the widget instead in the main code so we have the ability do not display a icon for collapsible.

Set icon options according widget factory. Use preferences of collapsible set for icon options.

Use existing api property name for consistency

Use originalEvent in preference to from

Vclick handler: Do not add active class if already added

Vclick handler: Do not avoid removing active class off button that already has it

Vclick handler: be more paranoid about the possibility that target.parentNode is null, and improve buttonMarkup data retrieval heuristics

Wait for DOM ready in addition to nav ready before listening for “navigate” events

Page

Dialog themed incorrectly when re-created (Issue #2215) – Attach handlers using ._on().

Needs to depend on core because it uses things from the $.mobile namespace (such as getInheritedTheme and pageContainer)

Orientation Change

Use extend in the create method also exposed resetActivePageHeight in mobile.navigation so panel can use it.

Chrome Issue: CSS column-count and data-role=”panel” (Issue #5508) – Bit more hardware acceleration of content-wrap required for Chrome.

Only apply active state to button styled links, not standard links

Set default theme for panel to “c”

Fixed incorrect fixed toolbar width and position if animate is false.

Cannot reclaim dialog hash state when a data-rel=”back” button is clicked inside a popup, because we cannot tell the difference between a link of the form href=”page-where-we-came-from” and a link of type data-rel=”back”

Check if link is in listview

Chrome popup stops launching if transition is “slideup” (Issue #5094) – Re-introduce interruptible transitions

Data-tolerance=”0″ did not work.

“detached retina” fix – the window height on iStuff with a retina display seems to fluctuate by one pixel during scroll, causing a spurious resize event right after popup open, even though window size is constant during the entire opening sequence

Do not pass link into open() because it is not used there.

Fixed the popup theme

Flatten widget methods: move timeout that triggers focus and “popupafteropen” to the widget level

Generate history entry when opening from an initial URL containing a hash key

Get rid of a bunch of “self” declarations

Made images inherit the corner styling when they are the only child in the popup.

Make sure close() only acts if the popup on which it is called is the currently open popup

New method: reposition() – emits “popupbeforeposition” and repositions the popup based on coordinates passed in.

Pass placement through “popupbeforeposition” to allow handlers to modify the popup positioning

New option: “dismissable”: default: true, whether a click on the screen or pressing Esc will dismiss the popup – note: pressing the “Back” button on the browser will dismiss the popup no matter what

Popup widget depends on selectmenu css
(Issue #5217) – Renamed class ui-selectmenu-hidden to ui-popup-hidden

Popup(“destroy”) never ends
(Issue #5244) – Avoid infinite recursion by detach()ing the payload from the container before attempting to put it back to its original place in the DOM (which may not exist, if the popup was created based on a detached element)

Popup disappears on iDevice with orientation change in standalone mode (Issue #5153) – Initiate resize expectation during orientationchange

Popup Reappears after closing when textarea input field expanded on iOS 6 (Issue #5157) – Only rapid-open the popup if it is open

Popup remove firing popupafterclose
(Issue #5123) – When destroying a popup, run close() before un-enhancing if it is the currently active popup

Removing stack unwind introduced in 84163152be7e2344976cc20f4b896cf87315b1f7 to prevent blue flash on Android, since the real reason for the blue flash may have been the triggering of the focus-capture code induced by a superfluous mouseup that results in a focusin on an element beneath the popup.

Rename function _maybeRefreshTimeout to _expectResizeEvent

Return from the dialogHashKey state when the back link takes the form of a link to the page that opened the dialog.

Scroll to top when popup is closed on iOS (Issue #5334) – Record scrollTop upon open and close, and restore it upon hashchange.

Systematically merge link options and widget options during _open().

There is a case when bindings must not be released during _closePopup()

Try to keep keyboard focus inside the popup while it’s open (Issue #5130) – Restrict focus to elements inside the popup

(Issue #5254) – Give IDs to the popup and the dialog, and open popup/dialog via nav — Fixes #5254

Custom select menu header corner styling (Issue #5215) – headers of custom select menus shouldn’t inherit the popup corner styling. Fixes #5215.

Make sure the UL ends up inside the popup when the menu is closed so that the next time its size needs to be measured to decide whether to show a dialog or a popup its size /can/ be measured. Also, centralize the close behaviour in the close method.

Mark as closed after dialog closes – Re: #5195 – Thanks martenbohlin

Must depend on navigation to open.

Older versions of jQuery report 0 for .attr( “tabindex” ) if the attribute is absent. Check for its presence first.

Prevent-focus-zoom doesn’t work :(
(Issue #5333) – improved preventFocusZoom

Prevent horizontal scrollbar on ui-content if only one custom select on the page. Fixes regression from commit 67e6fbc.

On pasting to a textarea, no auto grow occurs until one taps into and starts editing
(Issue #4854) – Make textarea autogrow also work on paste and with multibyte chars. Fixes #4854.

Text input placeholder text not grayed out in Firefox (Issue #5166) – Modify placeholder text color in Firefox to use standard in FF 15+, add important to resolve issue in build process where other CSS overrides :-moz-placeholder setting later on., use input prefix for -moz-placeholder fix instead of important override.

Toggle clear button on input event as well.

Width of textinput depends on its type (Issue #5131) – add margin 0 for webkit-inner-spin-button/webkit-outer-spin-button to resolve android 4.1 width issue for type=number fields, remove webkit-inner-spin-button and webkit-appearance:none as they caused an unwanted change in Chrome.

Platform support in 1.3.0

jQuery Mobile has broad support for the vast majority of all modern desktop, smartphone, tablet, and e-reader platforms. In addition, feature phones and older browsers are supported because of our progressive enhancement approach. We’re very proud of our commitment to universal accessibility through our broad support for all popular platforms.

We use a 3-level graded platform support system: A (full), B (full minus Ajax), C (basic HTML). The visual fidelity of the experience and smoothness of page transitions are highly dependent on the CSS rendering capabilities of the device and platform so not all A grade experience will be pixel-perfect but that’s the nature of the web.

* Note: If jQuery core 1.8+ is used with jQuery Mobile, iOS 3.x and BB5 are re-graded to C level support because core dropped support for methods these platforms need for full functionality.

A-grade – Full enhanced experience with Ajax-based animated page transitions.

Changes since 1.3.0 Beta

There are lots of great new features in 1.3.0: panel widget, two responsive table modes: reflow and column toggle, dual handle range slider, responsive grids, new Navigate event and method, a listview reveal feature to make autocomplete with local data easy, and much more.

Check out the 1.3.0 Beta blog post for details of everything new in this release. For those following along, here are the fixes and improvements we’re added since Beta based on your testing and feedback.

Events

Modified event dispatching which was impacting proper dispatching of scrolling events under jQuery 1.9.0. Thanks erikyuzwa!

Fixed toolbar

Fixed incorrect event binding in _on (Issue #5487) – Page padding should be applied before transition starts

Fixed header jumps around when iOS keyboard disappears (Issue #5332)- added iOS6 to iOS workarounds

Panel

Set min-height when panel is open (Issues #5456 and #5471). Prevents vertical scrollbar.

Panel should close after, and not during, page animation (Issue #5480) – changed event listener to pagehide. Thanks jhogervorst!

Use extend in the create method also exposed resetActivePageHeight in mobile.navigation so panel can use it.

Chrome Issue: CSS column-count and data-role=”panel” (Issue #5508) – Bit more hardware acceleration of content-wrap required for Chrome.

Only apply active state to button styled links, not standard links

Only set page theme to panel theme for reveal and push mode.

Auto-close panel when clicking on a link in the panel with data-ajax="false".

Nav

Incompatibity with jQuery.noConflict() (Issue #5448) – Fixed by wrapping the path helper module in an anonymous func.

Nav incorrectly adding an empty hash in Chrome (Issue #5442)

Disabling hashListeningEnabled in 1.3 beta doesn’t work (Issue #5445)

Add to history without modifying the location.hash when history is turned off

Make it possible to disable history in dialogs (Issue #5465) – Retreat in the urlHistory stack when closing with history disabled.

Popup

Popup over selectmenu focus issue (Issue #5519) – Cleaned up focus restriction handling.

Prevent opening a panel while another panel is already open (Issue #5510) – Don’t start opening a panel before other panels are closed.

Set default theme for panel to “c”

Fixed incorrect fixed toolbar width and position if animate is false.

Rangeslider

Missing argument in function _dragFirstHandle – exception was thrown in Firefox. Thanks stforek!

Selects

Get rid of hasAttribute calls. (Issue #5506) Thanks erikyuzwa.

Tables

A data-mini button in a data-role table doesn’t work (Issue #5531) – reset line-height for buttons in table

Text inputs

Text Input had too much padding on the right (Issue #5470) – Only set more padding right if option clear button is true

The textinput(‘enable’) method not working properly (Issue #5447)

Theming

Make it easy for people to override the icon color by just adding the ui-icon-alt class to the element or a container.

Added ui-icon-nodisc class to make it easy to have an icon without background.

Removed any remaining blur on text shadows for better performance

Slightly lightened up the drop shadow opacity to remove muddiness

Replaced icon sprite and update and set icon bg position for both SD and HD.

Cleaned up SD icons for clarify and alignment

Slidefade CSS: add two missing semicolons. This enables using the CSS as SCSS without compile errors.

Please help us test!

1.3: A responsive focus

Since the inception of the jQuery Mobile project, we have embraced the idea of designing for all devices and platforms in a “One web” approach. To that end, we built everything on a progressive enhancement foundation and every widget is designed to be 100% width to fit within a flexible or responsive grid.

jQuery Mobile-first

jQuery Mobile is also designed and fully tested to work not just on mobile phones, but tablets and even desktop browsers. Think of it as mobile-first, not mobile only. In fact, in our next release we’re going to be starting the process of integrating closer with the jQuery UI with the goal of having even more shared code and conventions. The UI tabs widget will be the first to be ported into our library and theming system.

We’ve seen the question “What should I use: RWD or jQuery Mobile?” many times on Twitter and our response is an unqualified “both”. Think of jQuery Mobile as a set of touch-friendly UI elements that are designed to fit within your responsive design. Even at 1.0, our demos & docs used media queries for a responsive experience, but we decided that we could do a better job helping people use responsive design techniques in their own projects.

Our focus for the 1.3 release has been to educate the community on responsive web design (RWD) by adding responsive documentation and demos that explain key concepts and also by adding new widgets like responsive tables, panels and grids that make it easy to build responsive sites and apps.

Bundling breakpoints

Media queries are a difficult thing for any framework to include in the codebase because responsive is all about designing for your specific content. For that reason alone, it’s impossible to pick a single “ideal” breakpoint that will work for everyone.

For example, in our responsive table widget we need to select a screen width to switch between the tabular and stacked presentation for reflow mode. That breakpoint width will completely depend on both the visual design (typography, other layout elements) and the content (number of columns, content length). To address this, in the docs for each responsive widget, we spend a lot of time explaining how to write a custom breakpoint that will be tailored to your unique needs.

Breakpoint classes to the rescue

The flipside is that people use a framework because they want things to be easy and it’s hard to explain that a responsive widget won’t work at all until you write a bunch of CSS. So the compromise we took for responsive widgets is to include a single breakpoint “preset” in the structural CSS that we hope will be useful in a fair amount of typical situations. This breakpoint is applied by adding a class like ui-responsive to the widget markup to opt into the breakpoint. This opt-in is important because overriding a breakpoint baked into the CSS is very cumbersome if you want to use a custom breakpoint — you’d need to negate all the CSS rules from our breakpoint before adding your own.

We think this strikes a good balance between convenience and educating folks on how to use media queries. When we finalize 1.3 in a few weeks, we’ll accompany this with an all-new demos site that will have RWD tutorials and lots of cool demos showing off how to write custom styles and breakpoints to deeply customize jQuery Mobile.

New Widget: Panels

One of the most common mobile UI patterns we see right now are Facebook-style panels that open to reveal a menu, form or other content. We spent a lot of time prototyping different ideas and are really happy with our new panel widget. It offers a ton of flexibility. Panels can be positioned on the left or right of the screen and be placed flexibly in the HTML source order.

There are three different ways a panel can animate open. The default reveal display slides the page away to show the panel beneath, the push display animates both the panel and page, and the overlay display places the panel on top of the page. Panels can be closed by swiping, tapping onto the page, or hitting the Esc key on the keyboard.

To take this widget responsive, it’s easy to add media queries to make the panel stay open at wider widths instead of auto-closing when you click on the page content. This makes this panel more like a collapsible column, like the folder list in a mail program. We’ve included a breakpoint preset to add this behavior by adding a class to the page container. Here’s an example of a typical panel setup with a left nav panel and right panel with a form.

For such a simple looking widget, panel were really challenging to get right across all our platforms. We ended up going through four different re-factors leading up to beta in order to get the animations as smooth as possible and are really happy with the result.

New: Responsive tables

There are a lot of possible ways to handle tabular data in responsive designs. We’ve decided to tackle two different responsive table modes in 1.3, each with its own strengths and uses.

The reflow table mode swaps to a stacked label/data style presentation at narrow screen widths and best for situations where the content length is fairly long and comparing data across rows in a table is less critical. For example, a product or movie list might be a good choice for reflow mode.

Reflow table API docs >

The column toggle table mode hides columns at narrower page widths according to a priority you set on each column as a sensible default to ensure that the table fits on-screen. A dynamically generated column chooser popup allows the user to select which columns they want to see for full control. This mode is best for situations where comparing data across rows and columns is critical. For example, a complex table of financial data might be a good choice for column toggle mode.

Column toggle API docs >

We’ve built some cool demos showing how you can customize these basic table tools to make a comparison chart or present complex financial data with grouped headers and more.

New: Range slider

Adding support for dual handle sliders for collecting range values has been a popular request and we’re happy to add this new widget in 1.3. The new dual handle range slider starts with a pair of HTML5 range inputs and essentially two sliders with a shared track. All the normal slider options work with ranges: mini sizing, theming, etc.

We’ve also refined the size and styling of the inputs that accompany sliders to make them integrate better visually and leave more room for the slider. The inputs are now mini sized with bold text and no border or spinner arrows (seen in desktop browsers).

All sliders now respect step values smaller than whole numbers which is great for scientific and financial applications that need inputs that capture values to the 0.1 or 0.01 level of accuracy. Slider behavior has been refined so dragging will snap to the closest step position to provide better feedback.

Range slider API docs >

New: Responsive grids

The cornerstone of any responsive design are responsive grids. We believe that the best grid systems are content-specific and not something that can be easily generalized into a framework but for people using our simple grid blocks, there are now detailed instructions on how to create your own media queries to adjust grids at various breakpoints.

We’re also shipping with a present breakpoint that can be applied by adding a class to your grid wrapper. This will apply a CSS breakpoint at narrower screen widths that stack all the grid blocks instead of floating them. This is a simple way to make your grids a bit responsive and fit better on phones.

Grid API docs >

Navigate event and method

There are two new additions to the navigation functionality in jQuery Mobile. A navigate event that normalizes the URL alteration events hashchange/popstate, and a $.mobile.navigate method that allows users to receive extended traversal information in navigate bindings (eg, directionality).

The navigate event is a lightweight attempt to unify bindings to a browser’s URL alteration events hashchange and popstate. It also handles differences in the way setting the hash on the location object interacts with the two browser events (ie, stop the world popstate triggering), and provides event hooks to control the event lifecycle.

The $.mobile.navigate method forms the bulk of the new functionality. By using the $.mobile.navigate method to do URL manipulation instead of doing it directly with the location object, replaceState, or pushState you get history management and support for both modes of URL state tracking. The history management provides a state object to navigate event bindings whether the browser supports the new history API or not. It also contains the logic to determine whether navigation is moving forward or back in the browser history.

Both the event and the method are available as modules apart from other navigation functionality in jQuery Mobile, with minor dependencies on other parts of the library. More info can be found on the issue for this refractor.

Navigate API: Event and Method

Page transitions: Support for IE10/WP8

Our CSS keyframe animations were written with vendor prefixes to date, but we’ve now added non-prefixed keyframe rules to bring transition support for IE10/WP8 and all future browsers. This also required updating the 3D support feature tests.

Listview: two new ways to make into an auto-complete

Everyone loves the listview filter feature and we heard quite a few requests to make this work as an autocomplete. Rather than create a new widget, we found two clever ways to make the current listview more powerful.

First, we’ve added the filter reveal feature makes is easy to build a simple autocomplete with local data. When a filterable list has the data-filter-reveal="true", it will auto-hide all the list items when the search field is blank and will display matching items as the user types into the search field. The data-filter-placeholder attribute can be added to specify the placeholder text for the filter. Any listview filter with a lot of items may be slow to perform on a mobile device so we recommend using this feature for a relatively small number of items.

To use the listview filter as an autocomplete that taps into remote data sources, you can use the listviewbeforefilter event to dynamically populate a listview as a user types a search query. This is useful when you have a very large data set like cities, zip codes, or products that can’t be loaded up-front locally. Use the view source button to see the JavaScript that powers this demo.

We’ve added corner and shadow options for inset listviews for consistency with other widgets and made it possible to set theme on list dividers via the data-divider-theme attribute. On mobile devices, when using a listview filter, the submit button on the on-screen keyboard will now blur the input to dismiss the keyboard to improve usability.

Dialog: close button option for control

If the dialog has a header the framework will automatically add a close button at the left side of the header. You can now change the position by adding data-close-btn="right" to the dialog container.

If you don’t want a close button in the header or prefer to add your own custom close button, you can use data-close-btn="none".

Dialogs now have a corners option like other widgets to control whether rounded corners are applied.

Popup: dismissible option

We’ve heard requests to prevent the click-out-to-close behavior of popups to make them modal. To address this, we’ve added a new dismissible option so you can add the data-dismissible attribute to a popup container. When set to false, the popup won’t close when you tap outside it onto the page.

Inputs: clear button option, support for file inputs

We’ve added a new feature to let you add the clear button we originally created for search inputs to any input type (text, date, number, etc.) by adding the data-clear-btn="true" attribute. The text for this clear button can be customized via the data-clear-btn-text="clear input" attribute. Search buttons have the clear button by default but can be controlled by this option. Note that this is available for all the input types except for textareas.

Now that file input types are becoming more supported by mobile platforms, we’ve added automatic styling for these as part of jQuery Mobile. Browser support for styling these is surprisingly good and even the clear button option seems to work with these on better browsers.

In addition, we’ve made lots of small improvements to inputs: fixed the height and alignment of text inputs on IE9/WP, textarea auto-grow now also works when you paste text, and text inputs now work much better with multibyte strings.

Selects: themable optgroups, header position support

If you’re using selects with custom menus, we’re fixed some focus issues and made optgroup themeable in custom menus via the new data-divider-theme option. We’ve also made selects work nicely inside headers when positioned with the ui-btn-left or ui-btn-right classes.

Button: programatic theme updates

It is now possible to change button’s data-theme programatically via _setOption.

Collapsibles: corner option

We’ve added a new corners option for inset collapsibles and collapsible sets to make this consistent with other widgets.

Fixed header improvements & extension

Fixed toolbars are tricky business with all the browser bugginess. Since 1.2, we’ve closed 37 fixed toolbar issues including the 1px jitter when scrolling, Android 2.x transition bugs, on-screen keyboard and input focus bugs, and iOS next/prev form controls causing the fixed header revealing itself.

Since the majority of these fixes are for older, but popular versions of Android 2.x and iOS, we’ve packaged these fixes and workarounds into an extension to fixed toolbars called fixedToolbar.workarounds.js that can be omitted in the download builder if you’re targeting only newer mobile browsers to save bandwidth and complexity.

Controlgroup is now a widget

We’ve upgraded controlgroup from a function into a proper widget so it has a full set of options (mini, shadow, corners, etc.) and a create event to help with enhancement.

Controlgroup API >

Icon additions: menu and edit

We’ve had a lot of requests to add specific icons to our icon sprite and with the current sprite-based approach, we’ve been trying to keep the set pretty simple and make it easy to use 3rd party sets. However, we realized that we need the now standard “3 bar” icon to accompany the new panels to support people using these for menus. While we were at it, we added a edit icon (pencil) because this was a very popular request.

In 1.4, we’re looking at re-vamping our theming and icon system and hope to be switching to SVGs with a PNG fallback which will make it easier to offer a larger icon set and maintain the best quality since we will be working with vectors. More on that after 1.3 is finalized.

Swipe event extensibility

The swipe event can now be extend to add your own logic or functionality. The following methods can be extended:

  • $.event.special.swipe.start – This method recieves a touchstart event and returns an object of data about the starting location.
  • $.event.special.swipe.stop – This method recieves a touchend event and returns an object of data about the ending location.
  • $.event.special.swipe.handleSwipe – This method recieves the start and stop objects and handles the logic for and triggering for the swipe events.

We’ve also been building some real-world swipe demos like the swipe page nav and the swipe listview item to delete.

Swipe event API >

New API site: Launching with 1.3!

Our current demo and docs format has mixed reviews: some folks like our simpler, tutorial style docs while others have said that it’s hard to just get all the info they need quickly.

To address this, we’ve been working hard on porting all our docs over to the same API style API format as jQuery core and UI. This will provide a complete reference for every option, method and event in one centralized, searchable place. Since the docs are all XML-based, you’ll be able to remix them in any way you want for complete flexibility.

We’d like to take a moment to thank team member Anne-Gaelle Colom who has spent an incredible amount of time over the last year building these docs from scratch and we really appreciate her dedication.

The new API docs are in beta now and when we hit 1.3 final, we’re going to switch over to those as our authoritative place for API info. Our plan is to retire the current docs and have an all-new demos site to accompany the new API docs.

Support for jQuery 1.9 and 2.0

jQuery Mobile 1.3.0 is being actively tested to support versions of 1.9 and 2.0 of jQuery core and will be keeping in sync with their releases to let you take full advantage of the new hotness. The 1.3.0 Beta includes 1.8.3 because 1.9.0 just shipped today (congrats). When we hit the final release, 1.9.0 will be our default. We will offer support back to 1.7.0 of core for folks on older versions.

Please help us test!

We’re looking for help with testing this release so we can release a final build as soon as possible. Browse the docs or try out the 1.3.0 Beta release in your projects, then report issues in the GitHub tracker. Be sure to specify the device, OS version, browser, steps to reproduce and include a simplified test case that uses the latest build (see our contributing guidelines for a test template). If all goes well, we hope to release the final build in 3-4 weeks.

KEY CHANGES

New Widget: Popups

The biggest feature of 1.2 is the new popup widget. The idea with popups is to create a flexible element that makes it easy to place any content or widget in an overlay that floats above the current page. This makes it easy to build a simple tooltip, menu, popup form, map overlay, or lightbox with this same widget.

Popups follow the markup pattern of dialogs and consist of a container with a data-role of popup and a link with a data-rel of popup that points to the ID of that container. When the link is clicked, the popup is shown. Clicking outside the popup, hitting the back button, or pressing the Escape key all close the popup.

Here is the basic markup you need: a link and popup container.

<a href="#popupBasic" data-rel="popup">Open Popup</a>

<div data-role="popup" id="popupBasic">
	<p>This is a completely basic popup.<p>
</div>

We’ve worked hard to make the popups as flexible as possible to let you get creative. By default, popups are styled as a simple box with the same theme as the current page, rounded corners, and a drop shadow. Popups don’t have padding which makes it really easy to drop in a widget like a listview to create a menu.

Out of the box, there are options to control whether how it’s positioned (centered over the thing you tapped, the window, or any selector), add a semi-transparent overlay layer behind the popup, use an animated transition when the popup opens, adjust theming, and more. We’ve also added a few advanced demos showing how to build a lightbox by working with image scaling, use embedded iframes in popups for maps and videos, and even make a very custom looking side panelby tweaking styles and working with the API.

Check out the popup docs for more on the options, methods, and events APIs.

Popup history tracking: Optional

We heard feedback at alpha that some developers didn’t want to track popups in the history stack. Using the browser Back button to dismiss popups and menus is an important UI convention on many mobile platforms but there may be use cases like an iOS app where this is less of a concern.

Since we had to exclude WP7 from the history support to workaround a bug anyway, we decided to surface this mechanism in the popup API as the history option, a boolean that defaults to true but can be set via the data-history="false" attribute or when calling popup:

$( ".selector" ).popup({ history: false });

Popups must live within the page wrapper (for now)

After alpha went out, we also heard pretty clear feedback that folks want to re-use popups across pages by placing them outside the page container. At the moment this won’t work because many widgets (listviews, toolbars) are built with the assumption that they live inside a page container for theme inheritance and enhancement to work. Until these widgets are re-factored to work outside of pages at a future release, popups should only be added within a page.

Collapsible Lists

Collapsible lists

We’ve had lots of requests to make collapsible listviews that would reveal a nested listview when a row is tapped. Rather than create a new extension for listviews, we realized we could adapt of existing collapsible widget to do the trick (thanks to sjdecaires for the suggestion).

Now collapsibles have a data-inset option which still defaults to true to keep the current collapsible appearance. When this is set to false, the collapsible goes to the edges of the screen, just like a non-inset listview does. By then placing a listview inside these full width collapsible, we achieve the effect of a collapsible list.

To make what looks like a collapsible list that allows multiple sections to be open at once, stack up a series of individual collapsibles with a listviews inside. To force only one section to be expanded at once, use the collapsible set (accordion) to get this behavior.

We’re really excited to bring this new capability to the library by just adding a single option to the existing plugin set and hope to find similar opportunities to add powerful features with minimal code.

Custom collapsible icons

We forgot to mention in the alpha post that we added the ability to configure the icons for the expanded and collapsed states of a collapsibles and collapsible sets. Collapsible headings’ default icons can be overridden by using the data-collapsed-icon and data-expanded-icon attributes and choosing any of the standard icons for each.

Listview Autodividers

Listview autodividers

Speaking of listivews, we have a cool new feature in 1.2: autodividers. Simply add the data-autodividers attribute to any listview and the framework will automatically add alphabetical list dividers based on the contents of your list.

<ul data-role="listview" data-autodividers="true">

This is especially helpful when generating lists dynamically. Best of all, this feature is designed to work seamlessly with our listview filter extension so dividers will be added and removed to stay in sync with the current set of filtered items.

Read-only Lists: Flat Visual Style

Read-only Listview

We’ve tweaked the design of read-only listviews in 1.2 to make them look less clickable by removing the gradient from the list items and only using the flat background color. It’s a subtle change, but it does help to provide a clearer visual separation between clickable and read-only lists.

Prior to 1.2, read only lists were also given a bit less padding because we figured that these didn’t need to be as touch-friendly as normal, clickable listviews. However, we found that some folks were using listviews with a mixture of linked and non-linked list items and that shift in padding didn’t look right.

We now use the same padding for both read-only and linked list items.

Controlgroup Icon Buttons: Easier to Tap

Controlgroup Icon Buttons

When icon-only buttons were used in controlgroups, they were simply too small to be finger-friendly so in 1.2, we’ve improved the design to increase the padding around the icons to make them easier to tap.

If you still need to smaller style, you can add the data-mini="true" option to the controlgroup or individual buttons to reduce the size of the button groups to be closer to the way they were in 1.1, but they are still large enough to still be usable.

Buttons in Toolbars: Now Mini by Default

Prior to 1.2, link-based buttons were mini by default, but not buttons based on input and button elements. Now, we automatically make these mini sized for visual consistency. If you ever need to revert to larger buttons, that option is available via the data-mini attribute.

All Form Elements: Width Adjustments in Fieldcontainers

Form widths

We recommend that most folks use the fieldcontainer markup pattern when building forms to take advantage of the responsive label styling. This stacks the label above the input at narrow widths and floats it to the left of the input at wider widths to take full use of tablet and desktop devices.

In 1.2, we’ve made some refinements to the design for this pattern to make sure we’re using as much of the horizontal space as possible for the form element. Labels have always been 20% + 2% margin and now the form element widths have been increased from 60% to 78% so they go as full width as possible.

We’ve carefully tested every form element in a wide variety of situations to ensure that the spacing and sizing of each is as consistent as we can for a polished experience.

Touch and vmouse events: Now available for standalone use

We’ve decoupled all of our plugins and have a clear dependency map which allows us to offer the download builder tool (Alpha) to let you build the leanest package possible. However, we heard that some developers just wanted to grab the virtual mouse events that normalize between touch and mouse inputs (vmouse) or the touch events like swipe or touchstart but don’t want to use the rest of the jQuery Mobile library.

In this latest release, we’ve refactored a bit to eliminate the dependency on mobile core for utilities like these. Now if you want to take advantage of just our vmouse events, simply check that box in the download builder and grab the file. Other utilities like orientationchange and throttledresize are also available without the core dependency in the builder.

This additional decoupling is only available if you choose 1.2.0 or latest in the version dropdown of the download builder tool.

Note that the file generated by the download builder is always jquery.mobile.custom.zip which contains the .js, .min.js, .css, .min.css.

Support for jQuery core 1.8 added: Impact on BB5 and iOS3

jQuery Mobile 1.2 now supports up to version jQuery core 1.8.2. However, there was an important change in jQuery core 1.8.x that removed a lot of old code for offset() in favor of the more modern getBoundingClientRect() and window.webkitConvertPointFromNodeToPage() methods. The one downside of this change is that Blackberry 5 and iOS 3 don’t support either of these methods, which broke widgets like the loader, popup and slider.

As of now, we’ve added in a small bit of code to detect if jQuery core 1.8+ is in use and if getBoundingClientRect() isn’t supported, we don’t enhance the page and keep it as simple HTML. That means that if you use 1.8.x with jQuery Mobile, BB5 and iOS3 will receive the C Grade experience (basic HTML). If you use version 1.7.x, these will be enhanced as before.

jQuery core 1.6.x: Support dropped

As a project, we generally support the two latest major versions of jQuery core. Now that 1.8 has been out for a while, we’re dropping support for 1.6.x in this release. If you use version 1.6.x, things should work fine now, but going forward, we will won’t actively test 1.6.x or fix issues that only occur with this version.

Supported Platforms: Always Expanding

Form widths

Our test lab has grown to over 70 phone, e-readers and tablets over the past few years. Luckily, our dedication to web standards and feature detection has meant that most new devices “just work” when they arrive. As of 1.2, we’ve added a few notable A grade platforms into testing rotation: iOS 6, Android 4.1 (Jellybean), Tizen, Firefox for Android, and Kindle Fire HD.

Added rule that prevents double borders in a serie of individual collapsibles  — To avoid double borders (top and bottom) in a serie of standalone collapsibles a CSS rule was added that can be easily overwritten if collapsibles with different swatches are used.

Custom collapsible icons  — Adds the ability to change the icon used for collapsible headers through data-* attributes and prototype options. Content of pages with fixed persistent toolbars higher than standard, now gets the right alignment. Thanks jakeboone02!

Make sure the collapsibles inherit a theme if nothing is set  — Collapsibles now show the right hover/button-up/button-down styling.

CollapsibleSet

Prevent the controls inside controlgroups from being wrapped multiple times (Issue: #4716)

Core

Introduce $.mobile.supportsTouch as a supported API and resuscitated $.support.touch though it is still unsupported

Moves fixed positioning blacklist to jquery.mobile.support.js  — Made the frameworks browser detection for fixed positioning support a central component.

Moving to jQuery 1.8 as the default version  — jQuery 1.8 (1.8.1) ist now the default version for jQuery Mobile 1.2.x

Reference widget factory version (Issue: #2838) — jQuery UI’s widget file includes its actual version now.

When the hash portion of the initial URL is exactly equal to the dialog hash key, we must trigger a hashchange (Issue: #5021)

Download Manager

CSS metadata were pointing at jquery.mobile.transitions.*  — Fix for the jQuery Mobile download manager.

Fixed CSS path had an extra dotdot  — Path fix for the jQuery Mobile download manager.

Form

Full width forms (Issue: #3301) — The width of fieldcontainers has been changed from 60% to 78% so the form will be full width now.

Framework, general

Added new jQM logo to docs homepage  — Learn more about the New jQuery Mobile Logo!

Grid

Grid CSS refactoring (Issue: #4835) — Grids with more than two columns and multiple rows now get the correct CSS. Thanks diamondq!

Listview

Add extra listview autodivider check (Issue: #4901) — If a listview was nested inside a normal list then the listviewcreate event for autodividers would also fire for the parent list causing an error as this list did not contain listview data. An extra check was added to ensure the parent list is actually a listview. Thanks marcins!

Added a “listviewbeforefilter” event (Issue: #4721) — Listview filter function improvement.

Added filter input as a data attribute of the event

Added missing webkit prefix for border-radius on Android 2.1 and iOS 3.2.

Always filter the full list of items (Issue: #4133) — Custom filter methods for listviews now always filter all list items.

Improved border styling of listview inside collapsible content  — Improved CSS for listviews and listview filter items inside collapsible content.

Increase the level of specificity of the margin 0 rule for listview buttons to avoid margins when used in grid (Issue: #4945) — CSS improvement for listviews to be more solid when placed in grids.

Listview autodividers: Fix for text links in list items  — Autodividers now work as expected if list items contain links.

Merge branch ‘townxelliot-autodividers’  — New Listview option Autodividers. Thanks townxelliot!

New styling for read-only lists (Issue: #4347) — Adding theming support and new styling for read only lists.

Navbar

Added clearfix for navbar (Issues: #5008 #5032) — CSS improvement to avoid styling issues when Navbars placed in listviews.

Capture and retrigger clicks on the parent list item element in navbars (Issue: #4663) — Fix for an issue on chrome/android where buttons in navbars are functionless after scroll.

Move active state regain code out of _create() and into its own prototype-level function and use ._on() to invoke it during “pagebeforeshow”

Persistent navbar broken on scroll, Chrome for Android. (Issue: #4663) — Persistent navbars now work as expected. Thanks mmavko!

Set margin to 0 to avoid the top/bottom margin of .ui-mini being applied

Navigation

Abstract backward movement in history (Issue: #4950) — “window.history.back” doesn’t work in phonegap applications after a page refresh, though it does work under hashchange/replacestate. The solution is to use their “navigator.app.backHistory” method along with a configuration option. The reasoning for the option is to prevent any corner cases popping up with existing phonegap applications. Forward history movement for the same usecase is _not_ addressed but remains an even lower priority.

Avoid string concat where possible  — Code refining.

Handle the case where the initial URL contains a non-path hash that points to a non-existing page

Handle URLs with parentheses properly (Issue: #4849) — The regular expression used to parse the jqmData psuedo selector restricts the
use of parentheses which are valid in urls. This breaks data-ns-url selection.
The fix is to avoid the pseudo selector.

Make sure the username and password in the url are encoded (Issue: #4787)

Overwrite stale dialog urlHistory entry instead of reusing it as-is (Issue: Replace location.href references with a centralized method so we can address a XSS/cross-site-scripting issue (Issue: #4787)

Strip authority to avoid exploits in parse regex (Issue: #4787) — As explained by @mala in Issue #4787, most browsers simply strip the authority from `location.href` anyway. We can simply mimick this more secure behavior for the browsers that don’t thereby avoiding the decoding XSS.

When showing a dialog, do not append dialogHashKey if the URL already contains it (Issue: #2656)

Page

Header buttons: Added “button” to the selector (Issue: #4638) — Manual added header buttons now placed in the same line as the title.

Phonegap

Added a note to the docs about using underscores within foldernames in PhoneGap for Android (Issue: #4991)

Popup

Add afteropen trigger to setTimeout with android fix  — The select menu’s (now that they depend on popups) require that the first item is focused after they are open. The focus of the popup itself was deferred until after the trigger of afteropen which the select menu uses to focus its first item. As a result the focus was stolen from the select menu by the popup to the popup container.

Add hashListeningEnabled to the intersection that establishes whether we will use history or not

Adding header/content/footer border support for popups (Issue: #5000) — Adds corner support for header/content/footer container inside popups having data-corners attribute set to true

Bind vclick handler to the document on Android  — To implement click-on-screen-to-dismiss-popup one must bind the “vclick” handler to the document rather than the screen, in order to prevent unpleasantness on Android 4.0. WP7 nevertheless requires the code to remain as is, because handling the screen vclick after it has bubbled to the document causes text and inputs underneath the screen to handle and then swallow the event.

Disable popup history managment in old IE by default (Issue: #4784) — Cause of a Windows Phone 7 (WP7) scroll position caching issue, the new popup history option is disbaled by default for old IE browsers.

Do not allow the event to bubble up to the document, after all  — Refactoring the popup close process to stop bubbling up to the document.

Do not fiddle with the focus when rapid-opening/closing during reposition (Issue: #4797) — Fix for a native keyboard issue preventing data-input in forms in popups when popup-reposition occurs.

Do not forget about the no-history-manipulation case when calling _open()  — Popups open method improvement when no-history feature is used.

Do not use history when there is no AJAX (Issue: #5006) — Fix for non working popups on BlackBerry 5.

Eliminate the need for a popup IE6/7-specific workaround class, as well as additional scripting  — Popup background fix for IE6/7.

Enable close button when history is disabled  — Make the popup close button work even if the new popup history option is disabled.

Exclude internal attributes from dom element (Issue: #4967) — Fixed markup issue when popup is opened.

First pass at disabling history with an option in popup  — Added a popup option for disabling URL history management. This new option sets whether to alter the URL when a popup is open to support the browsers back button. URL history management is enabled by default.

First pass at popup simplification  — Refactoring popup code for simplification.

Fixed the order of the tolerance parameters (Issue: #4856) — The values for the popup tolerance option to set the distance between the popup and the window, now were interpreted as the documention says: top, right, bottom, left.

Focus parent link on close when opened by a parent link  — Popup calling links now get focus back when popup closed.

Hide fixed toolbars on Android ICS native browser when popups are opened (Issues: #4816 #4844 #4874) — When fixed toolbars were used on a page, the use of any position:fixed elements cause havoc with rendering of stacked elements in Android. In these situations, the popup would visually appear *under* the overlay but was still clickable so this was a display bug. This issues were addressed by adding conditional logic that will toggle the toolbars from position:fixed to position:absolute when the popup is opened and closed. The drawback to this fix is fixed toolbars appear to hide when a popup is open, but this workaround is only applied to Android 4.0 and will only been seen if there are fixed toolbars and popups with an overlay theme.

Make sure the popup is closed on destroy (including cleanup)  — Popup code refactoring

On WP7, you get “” for an empty background, not undefined, like in IE8  — Fix for a WP7 popup issue.

Perform the visual open only when the nav hook has been acquired (Issue: #4949) — Fixed an iOS popup / custom select positioning issue.

Prevent positioning context bug for close buttons within popups in Opera Mini

Properly handle popups in dialogs, make sure dialog closes on page changes  — Refactoring popup chaining from dialogs to keep proper page navigation and URL history.

Remove default fade animation from popup overlays. (Issue: #4915) — The CSS-based fade in/out transition on the themed overlay causes similar visual stacking bugs as fixed toolbars in Chrome. This was addressed by removing the fade behavior on the overlay. Testing revealed that not animating the opacity of the overlay made the popup display significantly faster so this change is now applied across the board. The overlay now pops into place without a transition.

Remove link focus, unwind stack before applying focus and tabindex  — To prevent popup transition issues on Android 4.0 devices, the order of applying focus and tabindex was changed when popups are opened.

Remove styles related to popup overlay fade  — Tidied up popup CSS after removing overlay-transitions.

Resolve the popup screen deferred immediately  — Popup refactoring.

Restrict the application of the exclusions to the recording of the new option value in the data-* attributes. Do still chain up to mobile.widget with every option.  — Popup widget improvement.

Reuse dialog hash if already present and tack on another if it is part of the initial hash (Issue: #4994) — Popup refactoring to support browser refresh when a popup is open.

The popup screen leaves a 1px gap at the bottom of the screen to avert Android 4.0 hangage  — Popups now get a 1 Pixel bottom gap due to an display issue on Android 4.0.

Unhook hash listeners from popup when aborting

Use $.inArray, because IE does not seem to have .indexOf() on arrays

Use just the hash as a selector in IE7/WP 7.0 (Issue: #4917) — Fixed an IE7/Windows Phone 7.0 popup open issue caused by the handling of hashes and absolute hrefs in that browsers.

Use new ._on() binding method to attach handlers such that they are removed upon _destroy()

Use ui-overlay-* for overlay theme  — Popups overlay now use the ui-overlay class

Use widget factory to trigger events

Using “position: fixed” blacklist to fix popup overlays in browsers that know what they are doing with “position: fixed” to avoid monstrous overlays on long pages in some cases.

Select

Add ui-btn-down- to initially focused menu item to make tab selection consistent

Event timing difference in iOS 6 was causing zoom to be disabled and immediately re-enabled prior to the zoom taking place (Issue: #5041) — Fix for iOS 6 which reintroduces a select input page-zoom issue.

Slider

Bind to sliders vmouseup for refresh (Issue: #4756) — Browsers like Chrome provide an up and down arrow for range/number inputs but they don’t fire the change event until the control is blurred. We now bind to the mouseup event and check if the value has been altered. If it has, we refresh now the slider position to reflect the value change.

Correct slider to use _on, and guard the unbinding test

Increase level of specificity to avoid conflicts when sliders used in a grid (Issue: #4944) — CSS improvement for sliders to be more solid when placed in grids.

Merge branch ‘memory-leaks’  — Slider widget functional and memory improvements

Move _preventDocumentDrag function into the widget prototype and attach it with ._on() to ensure removal upon destroy()

Move _sliderMouseUp function into the widget prototype and attach it with ._on() to ensure removal upon destroy()

Partly fixes an issue on Safari/Mac where the input width is decreased when the browser implements the spinner

Stop the call structure for slider updates earlier on disabled inputs (Issues: #3058 #4770) — Improved behavior for disabled sliders.

Support slidestart and slidestop events (Issue: #1589) — Sliders now support slidestart and slidestop events

Textinput

Move _keyup function into the widget prototype and attach it with ._on() to ensure removal upon destroy()

Unbind document handlers to prevent memory leaks on textinput

Toolbar

A negative indent of -99999em can cause native Android 4.x to freak out, since its so absurdly high. Switched to -9999px.

Added class ui-popup to tapToggleBlacklist  — The tap toggle feature for fixed toolbars now is disabled when popups are open.

Fix for fixed persistent toolbar padding issues (Issues: #4176 #4219) — Content of pages with fixed persistent toolbars higher than standard, now gets the right alignment. Thanks MauriceG!

Prevent `0` from being appended to the document when using a persistent footer with jQuery 1.8.x (Issue: #4887)

Widget Factory

Upgrade widget factory to 1.9 beta version (Issue: #4629)

Platform support in 1.2.0

jQuery Mobile has broad support for the vast majority of all modern desktop, smartphone, tablet, and e-reader platforms. In addition, feature phones and older browsers are supported because of our progressive enhancement approach. We’re very proud of our commitment to universal accessibility through our broad support for all popular platforms.

We use a 3-level graded platform support system: A (full), B (full minus Ajax), C (basic HTML). The visual fidelity of the experience and smoothness of page transitions are highly dependent on the CSS rendering capabilities of the device and platform so not all A grade experience will be pixel-perfect but that’s the nature of the web.

* Note: If jQuery core 1.8+ is used with jQuery Mobile, iOS 3.x and BB5 are re-graded to C level support because core dropped support for methods these platforms need for full functionality.

A-grade – Full enhanced experience with Ajax-based animated page transitions.
