Getting started with PAX

In this article, we show you how to get started with the PAX javascript framework. We show a simple example using a form, and then follow on with more complex situations.

This article discusses the following parts in detail:

  • Initial setup
  • Simple example - datepicker
  • Extended example - form validation
  • Complex example - form validation with ajax
  • Creating your own widgets

Initial setup

In order to get PAX running, follow these steps:

  • Download and uncompress PAX to the root of your webserver, eg: http://localhost/pax/
  • Insert the pax development script (pax_dev.js), and the pax CSS file (/pax/resource/css/pax_consolidated.css) into the head of your document.
You are now ready to go! You end up with at least the following html:
        <script src='/pax/pax_dev.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
        <style type='text/css'>@import url( /pax/resource/css/pax_consolidated.css );</style>
Read on for a simple example!
