jQuery: Selectors, Methods, Effects

Advertisement:

This video tutorial shows the basics of jQuery Selectors, Methods and some nice little image and text effects.

It’ll be fun..

Note:
$(); is a shortcut to $jQuery(); and it’s called Selector.
Its used to select id’s, class, elements.

Selecting id’s, classes and elements is similar to that of CSS Selectors.
For id use # symbol.
For Class use . symbol.
For tags or elements, use tag name or element name.

jQuery Example Code:

1
2
3
4
5
 $(document).ready( function() {
    $("p").click( function() {
      $("img").fadeOut("slow");
  });
});

Once the document is ready or loaded and the user clicks on paragraph text, the image slowly fades out. Simple.
