Javascript UI tools code examples

The Simplicité® UI tools methods are in the Simplicite.UI namespace and rely on jQuery®.

Note: jQuery is aliased as $ as of version 4.0 (in previous versions the alias was $j)

All methods are statics, they should be called as Simplicite.UI.<method>(...). In order to write more compact code the Simplicite.UI should be aliased, for instance:

var $ui = Simplicite.UI;

This $ui alias will be used in the above examples.

The following examples are only usage snippets, for details please refer to JSDoc.

Helpers

Divs

The $ui.div() method returns a DOM <div/> jQuery object.

Typical usage can be:

var d = $ui.div({ id: 'mydiv', style: 'background: lightgray' });
$('#mycontainerdiv').append(d.append("Hello world!"));

Images and icons

The $ui.image(name) method returns a DOM <img/> jQuery object with source URL built as standard image location (Simplicite.ROOT + '/images/image/' + name) if name is not null.

The $ui.icon(name) method returns a DOM <img/> jQuery object with source URL built as standard icon location (Simplicite.ROOT + '/images/icon/' + name) if name is not null.

Typical usage can be:

$('#mycontainerdiv').append($ui.image('simplicite.png'));
$('#mycontainerdiv').append($ui.icon('home.gif'));

Static GoogleMaps® image

The $ui.staticMap(param) method returns a DOM <img/> jQuery object with a source URL on a static GoogleMaps® map. It takes various types of parameter:

var map1 = $ui.staticMap({ coordinates: "48.880370621;2.35282005703" }); // E.g. Simplicite coordinates field value
var map2 = $ui.staticMap({ latitude: 48.880370621, longitude: 2.35282005703, zoom: 13, width: 200, height: 150 });

Buttons

The $ui.button() method returns a DOM <input type="button"/> jQuery® object.

Typical usage can be:

var bt = $('#mycontainerdiv').append($ui.button({ id: 'mybutton', label: 'Click me !', color: 'green'}).click(function() {
    alert('You clicked me!');
}));

The $ui.imageButton() method is similar except that it returns a DOM <img/> jQuery object, you can specify either an imageor an icon.

Typical usage can be:

// Image button
var imbt = $('#mycontainerdiv').append($ui.imageButton({ id: 'myimagebutton', label: 'Click me !', icon: 'home.gif'}).click(function() {
    alert('You clicked me!');
}));
// Icon button
var icbt = $('#mycontainerdiv').append($ui.imageButton({ id: 'myiconbutton', label: 'Click me !', image: 'simplicite.png'}).click(function() {
    alert('You clicked me!');
}));
