how important is jQuery UI?

I have the book by Manning, jQuery in Action. The second part of the book is about jQuery UI. But my work is in Razor, using C# and MVC3.

Does jQuery UI stil have relevance for me? I have never been on a project that uses jQuery UI, I don't think.

Thanks.

Jquery UI is library by jquery to build user interface. It provides you an abstraction to low level UI handling for screen components.
It just makes you UI development easy. Read this page documentation
http://jqueryui.com/demos/

Do you think that the projects I have been on actually use jQuery UI? Is jqGrid part of jQuery UI?

Hi!

Jquery UI is set of widgets build upon Jquery library.

You  don't need to to have  juqery UI in your project.

Just  go through the demos gurvinder372 had linked.
If you feel it might add look and feel to your project along with the quick and easy development.

jqGrid is not part of jqueryUI

Thanks!
