I currently define options for my widgets in an attribute on the element. But I think it would make for a simple and useful addition to the main jQuery UI library. To best understand what I mean, please see this example.

This would allow us to easily define the options for our widgets inline with the actual widget (instead of in a script somewhere). It's very helpful for dynamically generated pages with many widgets with different configurations.

You can already build whatever logic you want with _getCreateOptions(). We're not going to build this into jQuery UI.

I was not aware of that function , I'll take a look. Thanks.

Can you elaborate regarding how I could use apply a specific function to the _getCreateOptions() for all widgets? Is there a way to do this?

Change $.widget._getCreateOptions(). Please ask for help on IRC, the forums, or Stack Overflow.

Thank you, sorry for asking that here, I realize it's not the right place. I'm done. :)
