Extending jQuery Plugins
Not much going on with my ISPF interface at the moment. I want to add some additional functionality to the jQuery UI dialog plugin so I’m trying to figure out how to extend it properly rather than modify the base code.
I have been writing a section on here on how to roll your own web server. Whilst I am not publishing any code at this time I thought the basic knowledge might be useful to someone.
Oh almost forgot. I did make the data set list returned by the 3.4 function into a dialog instead of embedding it into the page. That means you can have multiple data set lists open at the same time (for drag and drop between data sets in different lists) and you can also switch to another tab without losing the lists (to drop data sets onto other ‘functions’ hosted by other tabs).
