The word on the street is my book is now available.
Update: Chapter 9 is an old revision, the publisher is chasing this up for me. This chapter had a major upgrade, so stay tuned.
If you like using dynamic actions in APEX and want to learn how to use jQuery selectors effectively, this book is for you.
If you want more flexibility with your dynamic actions, and understand how handy this.triggeringElement can be, give it a read.
If you want some more ideas on how to improve the way your users interactive with your data, check it out.
Practical techniques to enhance your APEX user interface, written for APEX 5.0.
Complete acknowledgements in the book, but thank you to Alex Fatkulin for being the technical reviewer. Any mistakes you might find are on me, some chapters got some major revisions after Alex's eyes cast through them. In part thanks to the APEX 5.0 release, in part to me continuing to learn better ways to write jQuery.
Roel has already spotted a mistake, thanks mate ;p
I missed the second X when referring to built in substitution string APP_AJAX_X01.
I feel like I'm standing on the shoulders of some giants who have paved the way before me. Without the help of the broader community on the OTN forums, StackOverflow, Slack, Twitter, conferences and people sitting right next to me, such an accomplishment would not be possible. Three in particular have been vital in my learning of jQuery, thanks Tom Petrus, Jari Laine, and Jeff Eberhard.
I've reviewed a bunch of books (and things) in the past, too, if you're looking for more book selections. I bought a few in the Cyber Monday sales, including the revised, multi-author gold nugget that is Expert Oracle APEX, plus a couple on node.js.
I welcome you all to review mine on Amazon or your blog once you've had a read. Hit me on Twitter or Slack if you have any questions or commentary. I welcome your input. It was quite the experience writing this and I have all the hesitations I'm sure many before me have faced regarding it's reception. It was a rather lone project, but one undertaken with pride and enthusiasm.
I'll write a few posts over the next few weeks that might whet your appetite for some jQuery action. And no, I wouldn't rule out writing another one day!
