I spent probably the better part of two days putting together what I think is a decent "contact list". It uses jQuery, jQuery-tablesorter, and jQuery-UI, as well as a bunch of Javascript to avoid any server-side callbacks, and of course a bunch of CSS.

Now, the thing is, I'm constantly looking up the docs -- how do I sort table rows, how do move columns, how do I hide columns, how does the button-set work, why is $(this).hide() a function but row.hide() isn't, how do I get divs to align nicely horizontally, how do I get a div to right align, how do I get the last column of the table to right-align, how do I get the table columns to adjust to the width of their content, etc.etc.etc.

Now, please DO NOT answer these questions. I already know the answers, after spending countless hours Googling and Fiddling. I will say one thing, thank God (or the gods Smile | :) ) for StackOverflow, the fount of amazing wisdom. I will admit that even after finding the answer, I enjoy reading all the rest of the possible solutions because often there are several options and it's highly educational.

So, back to my question -- is anyone actually fluent enough in these technologies so that if I give you the requirements:

I want:

a table of contacts
sortable by first name and last name
a slider button that lets you switch first / last name columns (affecting the sorting)
searchable with an A-Z index (like a physical address book with little "A", "B", "C..." etc. tabs)
and with columns for email address, home / work / cell phone numbers that can be selected by a button-set

...how long would it take you to write that? The amount of code is actually minimal, it seems like if you know what you're doing it shouldn't take more than 1/2 hour.

Oh, and I forgot to mention -- it needs to look good too. Mwahaha.

But does anyone really know how to do this stuff without looking up a gazillion things?

WinForm programming is child's play in comparison.

Anyways, an article on this will be forthcoming in the next day or two.

Here's the article.[^]
