    Comment on it

    Hello readers , today in my blog I will discuss about creating a form using JQuery along with the use of progress bar .

     

    In this blog , I have simply created 3 forms whose first step includes the form for creating your account that includes 3 fieldsets within it such as Email , Password , Confirm password .

     

    Now moving to the next step I have created an another form with the name as Social Profile that includes 3 input fields which are Twitter , Facebook , Google plus .

     

    Moving next , I have created another form with the name as personal Details with various input fields name such as First Name , Last Name , Phone , Address.

     

    I have styled my form using CSS to the input fields in the created field sets.

     

    I have applied JQuery for moving one form to another with the help of progress bar .

     

    With the help of CSS , I have styled the progress bar by creating an unordered list . On clicking the button next as displayed over each form will move the user to new form and we can even move to the previous form along with the changes appearing in the progress bar.

     

    I have used pseudo-elements after and before to the created progress bar li and had added a counter-increment to the progress bar li :before .

    }

    I have applied the code of JavaScript to the progress bar , In this I have created 3 variables current field set , Previous and next field set .

     

    I have also created the variables of the field set properties which we need to animate which are var left , scale , opacity.

     

    I have also created a variable to prevent any problem if any arrives.

     

    Now for moving over to the next form , we will use the following code as shown below :-


     

    $(".next").click(function(){
    
    if(animating) return false;
    
    animating = true;
    
    
    current_fs = $(this).parent();
    
    next_fs = $(this).parent().next();

    Now for activating the next step on progressbar using the index of next fieldset , below is the code

    //activate next step on progressbar using the index of next_fs
    
    $("#progressbar li").eq($("fieldset").index(next_fs)).addClass("active");
    
    
    //show the next fieldset
    
    next_fs.show(); 

    I have used show and hide function which will help us to move to the next form by hiding the previous one .

     

    Now for animating , I have created a function animate which will work whenever the user needs to move to the next form .


    Below is the code for it -

    //hide the current fieldset with style
    
    current_fs.animate({opacity: 0}, {
    
    step: function(now, mx) {
    
    //as the opacity of current_fs reduces to 0 - stored in "now"
    
    //1. scale current_fs down to 80%
    
    scale = 1 - (1 - now) * 0.2;
    
    //2. bring next_fs from the right(50%)
    
    left = (now * 50)+"%";
    
    //3. increase opacity of next_fs to 1 as it moves in
    
    opacity = 1 - now;
    
    current_fs.css({'transform': 'scale('+scale+')'});
    
    next_fs.css({'left': left, 'opacity': opacity});
    
    },
    
    duration: 800,
    
    complete: function(){
    
    current_fs.hide();
    
    animating = false;
    
    },
    
    //this comes from the custom easing plugin
    
    easing: 'easeInOutBack'
    
    });
    
    });
    
    
    
    $(".previous").click(function(){
    
    if(animating) return false;
    
    animating = true;
    
    
    current_fs = $(this).parent();
    
    previous_fs = $(this).parent().prev();
    
    
    //de-activate current step on progressbar
    
    $("#progressbar li").eq($("fieldset").index(current_fs)).removeClass("active");
    
    
    //show the previous fieldset
    
    previous_fs.show();
    
    //hide the current fieldset with style
    
    current_fs.animate({opacity: 0}, {
    
    step: function(now, mx) {
    
    //as the opacity of current_fs reduces to 0 - stored in "now"
    
    //1. scale previous_fs from 80% to 100%
    
    scale = 0.8 +//hide the current fieldset with style
    
    current_fs.animate({opacity: 0}, {
    
    step: function(now, mx) {
    
    //as the opacity of current_fs reduces to 0 - stored in "now"
    
    //1. scale current_fs down to 80%
    
    scale = 1 - (1 - now) * 0.2;
    
    //2. bring next_fs from the right(50%)
    
    left = (now * 50)+"%";
    
    //3. increase opacity of next_fs to 1 as it moves in
    
    opacity = 1 - now;
    
    current_fs.css({'transform': 'scale('+scale+')'});
    
    next_fs.css({'left': left, 'opacity': opacity});
    
    },
    
    duration: 800,
    
    complete: function(){
    
    current_fs.hide();
    
    animating = false;
    
    },
    
    //this comes from the custom easing plugin
    
    easing: 'easeInOutBack'
    
    });
    
    });
    
    
    
    $(".previous").click(function(){
    
    if(animating) return false;
    
    animating = true;
    
    
    current_fs = $(this).parent();

    //de-activate current step on progressbar

    $(".submit").click(function(){
    
    return false;
    
    })
