SharePoint -JQuery Tools

Recently I needed to break out of the limited features that SharePoint had to offer out of the box. Condition was not to start programming, and especially not to change anything in the Backend of the SP Server.

So the solution was to turn to JScript, it runs client side !

But with nearly ever touched JScript this would take me a while to get into it.

So the final solution came for the JQuery Library.

How to install the JQuery library

jQuery is a fast, small, and feature-rich JavaScript library. It makes things like HTML document traversal and manipulation, event handling, animation, and Ajax much simpler with an easy-to-use API that works across a multitude of browsers. With a combination of versatility and extensbility, jQuery has changed the way that millions of people write JavaScript.

And the related SharePoint specific derivate tools, like :
