    Hi derek,
    I am watching your tutorials from very earlier.
    Earlier this script worked fine.But now when I am using the same scripts its not working for any of the buttons. Please help

  2. John says:

    It wasn’t working for me either. It turns out there are some strange characters that look similar to quotes inserted where a few of the quotes should be in the code above. Once I changed those it started working.

    • admin says:

      Yes that is what you need to do with my older tutorials. It was part of an old security feature. If you replace backquotes with regular quotes everything works. Sorry about that

    Be sure to use the latest version of
    jquery-ui.min.js which is 1.9.2.

    Hi Derek, I notice you don’t use anonymous functions when coding your jQuery, is it just for saving time or do you not find them necessary
