Problem with jquery selectors.

jquery , selector Philadelphia, United States
  • 8 years ago

    I am trying to use this jquery slide function that i found online. It's a very basic slide plugin i suppose, which selects a div using the div's id tag. I wanted to make my menu hide/reveal multiple divs and therefore I modified this function that I keep in my .js file to make things work theoretically. But for some reason I cannot get this to work and I think that it might be that my selectors are implemented wrong in my js file. Here is an example of what I've got which seems to work except for when I try my modified code:

    $(document).ready(function() {

        $(".fadeNext_home").click(function(){  
    
                $("#home").fadeSliderToggle()
    
                 return false;
    
        })
    

    });

    This is the code that works in my js file:

        caller = this
    

    if($(caller).css("display") == "none"){

    $(caller).animate({

    opacity: 1,

    height: 'toggle'

    }, settings.speed, settings.easing);

        }else{
    
                $(caller).animate({
    

    opacity: 0,

    height: 'toggle'

    }, settings.speed, settings.easing);

        }
    

    };

    And this is a modified version with my own selector that does not work. And I think it's because of the way that I'm trying to interact with an id tag that was not passed to the js file:

        if($(caller).css("display") == "none"){
    
    
    
                if($("#home").css("display") != "none"){
    
                        $("#home").animate({
    
                                opacity: 0,
    
                                height: 'toggle'
    
                        }, settings.speed, settings.easing);
    
                }
    

    I'm new to jquery (obviously) and would appriciate any help. Thanks so much!

    thanks, wes
