jQuery – Implement touch and gesture based interaction using TouchSwipe

Here is an example for a simple swiping implementation using TouchSwipe.

<!doctype html>
  <title>Eureka! - TouchSwipe Example</title>
  <style type="text/css">
    #box {
      background-color: green;
      width: 400px;
      height: 225px;
      line-height: 225px;
      text-align: center;
  <div id="box">Swipe here!</div>
  <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.touchSwipe.min.js"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript">
      swipe: function(event, direction, distance, duration, fingerCount) {
        $(this).text("You swiped " + direction );


Done =)

jQuery – Freeze HTML table header and the left columns

A few months ago, i am working on a website project which contains a very wide HTML table. The client wants to keep the top row and the two columns on the left hand side of the table sticky.

  2. Chinese Name – field_chinese_name


I would like to have a single text input filter which could search for these 2 fields with an Or condition.
