<div class="longdesc" id="entry-longdesc">
			<p>You can create new widgets from scratch, using just the <code>$.Widget</code> object as a base to inherit from, or you can explicitly inherit from existing jQuery UI or third-party widgets. Defining a widget with the same name as you inherit from even allows you to extend widgets in place.</p>

			<p>jQuery UI contains many widgets that maintain state and therefore have a slightly different usage pattern than typical jQuery plugins. All of jQuery UI's widgets use the same patterns, which is defined by the widget factory. So if you learn how to use one widget, then you'll know how to use all of them.</p>

			<p><em>Note: This documentation shows examples using the <a href="/progressbar">progressbar widget</a> but the syntax is the same for every widget.</em></p>

			<h3>Initialization</h3>

			<p>In order to track the state of the widget, we must introduce a full life cycle for the widget. The life cycle starts when the widget is initalized. To initialize a widget, we simply call the plugin on one or more elements.</p>

			<div class="syntaxhighlighter nogutter  "><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td class="code"><div class="container"><div class="line number1 index0 alt2"><code class="plain">$( </code><code class="string">"#elem"</code> <code class="plain">).progressbar();</code></div></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div>

			<p>This will initialize each element in the jQuery object, in this case the element with an id of <code>"elem"</code>. Because we called the <code>progressbar()</code> method with no parameters, the widget is initialized with its default options. We can pass a set of options during initialization in order to override the default options.</p>

			<div class="syntaxhighlighter nogutter  "><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td class="code"><div class="container"><div class="line number1 index0 alt2"><code class="plain">$( </code><code class="string">"#elem"</code> <code class="plain">).progressbar({ value: 20 });</code></div></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div>

			<p>We can pass as many or as few options as we want during initialization. Any options that we don't pass will just use their default values.</p>

			<p>The options are part of the widget's state, so we can set options after initialization as well. We'll see this later with the option method.</p>

			<h3>Methods</h3>

			<p>Now that the widget is initialized, we can query its state or perform actions on the widget. All actions after initialization take the form of a method call. To call a method on a widget, we pass the name of the method to the jQuery plugin. For example, to call the <code>value()</code> method on our progressbar widget, we would use:</p>

			<div class="syntaxhighlighter nogutter  "><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td class="code"><div class="container"><div class="line number1 index0 alt2"><code class="plain">$( </code><code class="string">"#elem"</code> <code class="plain">).progressbar( </code><code class="string">"value"</code> <code class="plain">);</code></div></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div>

			<p>If the method accepts parameters, we can pass them after the method name. For example, to pass the parameter <code>40</code> to the <code>value()</code> method, we can use:</p>

			<div class="syntaxhighlighter nogutter  "><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td class="code"><div class="container"><div class="line number1 index0 alt2"><code class="plain">$( </code><code class="string">"#elem"</code> <code class="plain">).progressbar( </code><code class="string">"value"</code><code class="plain">, 40 );</code></div></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div>

			<p>Just like other methods in jQuery, most widget methods return the jQuery object for chaining.</p>

			<div class="syntaxhighlighter nogutter  "><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td class="code"><div class="container"><div class="line number1 index0 alt2"><code class="plain">$( </code><code class="string">"#elem"</code> <code class="plain">)</code></div><div class="line number2 index1 alt1"><code class="undefined spaces">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</code><code class="plain">.progressbar( </code><code class="string">"value"</code><code class="plain">, 90 )</code></div><div class="line number3 index2 alt2"><code class="undefined spaces">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</code><code class="plain">.addClass( </code><code class="string">"almost-done"</code> <code class="plain">);</code></div></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div>

			<p>Each widget will have its own set of methods based on the functionality that the widget provides. However, there are a few methods that exist on all widgets, which are documented below.</p>

			<h3>Events</h3>

			<p>All widgets have events associated with their various behaviors to notify you when the state is changing. For most widgets, when the events are triggered, the names are prefixed with the widget name. For example, we can bind to progressbar's <code>change</code> event which is triggered whenever the value changes.</p>

			<div class="syntaxhighlighter nogutter  "><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td class="code"><div class="container"><div class="line number1 index0 alt2"><code class="plain">$( </code><code class="string">"#elem"</code> <code class="plain">).bind( </code><code class="string">"progressbarchange"</code><code class="plain">, </code><code class="keyword">function</code><code class="plain">() {</code></div><div class="line number2 index1 alt1"><code class="undefined spaces">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</code><code class="plain">alert( </code><code class="string">"The value has changed!"</code> <code class="plain">);</code></div><div class="line number3 index2 alt2"><code class="plain">});</code></div></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div>

			<p>Each event has a corresponding callback, which is exposed as an option. We can hook into progressbar's <code>change</code> callback instead of binding to the <code>progressbarchange</code> event, if we want to.</p>

			<div class="syntaxhighlighter nogutter  "><table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td class="code"><div class="container"><div class="line number1 index0 alt2"><code class="plain">$( </code><code class="string">"#elem"</code> <code class="plain">).progressbar({</code></div><div class="line number2 index1 alt1"><code class="undefined spaces">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</code><code class="plain">change: </code><code class="keyword">function</code><code class="plain">() {</code></div><div class="line number3 index2 alt2"><code class="undefined spaces">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</code><code class="plain">alert( </code><code class="string">"The value has changed!"</code> <code class="plain">);</code></div><div class="line number4 index3 alt1"><code class="undefined spaces">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</code><code class="plain">}</code></div><div class="line number5 index4 alt2"><code class="plain">});</code></div></div></td></tr></tbody></table></div>

			<p>All widgets have a <code>create</code> event which is triggered upon instantiation.</p>

			The element will be hidden using the specified effect.
			The value can either be the name of a built-in jQuery animateion method, such as <code>"slideUp"</code>, or the name of a jQuery UI effect, such as <code>"fold"</code>.
			In either case the effect will be used with the default duration and the default easing.

When using a jQuery UI effect that supports additional settings, you may include those settings in the object and they will be passed to the effect. If <code>duration</code> or <code>easing</code> is omitted, then the default values will be used. If <code>effect</code> is omitted, then <code>"fadeOut"</code> will be used.</li>

<li>
<strong>String</strong>: 
			The element will be shown using the specified effect.
			The value can either be the name of a built-in jQuery animateion method, such as <code>"slideDown"</code>, or the name of a jQuery UI effect, such as <code>"fold"</code>.
			In either case the effect will be used with the default duration and the default easing.

<strong>Object</strong>: If the value is an object, then <code>effect</code>, <code>duration</code>, and <code>easing</code> properties may be provided. If the <code>effect</code> property contains the name of a jQuery method, then that method will be used; otherwise it is assumed to be the name of a jQuery UI effect. When using a jQuery UI effect that supports additional settings, you may include those settings in the object and they will be passed to the effect. If <code>duration</code> or <code>easing</code> is omitted, then the default values will be used. If <code>effect</code> is omitted, then <code>"fadeIn"</code> will be used.</li>
