Summary: In this video, we will discuss how to work with jQuery plugins. Jquery plugins are very handy and they extend the jQuery functionality quite a bit. Couple of those important plugins are: the maxlength and the maskedimput. We will star with the maxlength. We will see that we can indicate how many characters the user can enter. We will also add more functionality to see the number of characters left as we are typing. Then, we will talk about the masked input. We will use the birthdate and the phone number as examples. These masks will give the user an indication on the format of the input that way the user will not be able to enter invalid data (such as letters in a phone number field).
