JQuery – Samples

Posted: November 22, 2010 in JQuery

1. Check class exist or not – if($(“#id”).hasClass(“narroww”))
2. Change element width/height (one or more “,” separated targets) – $(“#id1 .clsname, #id2 .clsname”).width(10px).height(10px);
3. Set css – $(“#id”).css(‘visibility’, ‘hidden’);
4. The difference between .css(‘height’) and .height() is that the latter returns a unit-less pixel value (for example, 400) while the former returns a value with units intact (for example, 400px). The .height() method is recommended when an element’s height needs to be used in a mathematical calculation.
5. Show/Hide elements based on class/id/tag –
 $(“#id”).show(); $(“#id”).hide();
 $(“a”).show(); $(“a”).hide();
 $(“.myclass”).show(); $(“.myclass”).hide();

Events –

If you are using JQuery 1.4+ then always use unbind before calling bind, otherwise events will fire more than once due to binding the same event multiple times. Performance will be bad in case if you have too many links on page and you are attaching events to them through JQuery bind method.

1. $(this).unbind(‘hover’); does not work. So use either $(this).unbind(‘mouseenter’).unbind(‘mouseleave’); or $(this).unbind(‘mouseenter mouseleave’);
2. To unbind all events use $(this).unbind(); unbind() doesn’t work with hardcoded inline events Ex: <div id=”some_div” onmouseover=”do_something();”>
