jQuery UI Integrations

Since jqGrid is a jQuery plugin it is very natural that in some cases we should not reinvent the wheel.
That is the reason that we have made a decision to do some things in jqGrid using the wonderful jQuery UI library.
Making this we believe that users will be happy.

Requirements and installation

In order to use the stuffs that we have made in jqGrid it is necessary to include additionally the jQuery UI library in the head section of the document. For more information how to download the jQuery UI library visit here
After downloading the jQuery UI your configuration can look like this:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" href="css/ui.jqgrid.css" />
