JQuery :: Title Attribute Disappears When Cloning?
Feb 1, 2011
I am using the little tooltip script below. Normally, works fine, except when I clone an element which has a tooltip in it and append it to another element using something like: $("#table tbody").append($("#row").clone(true));.
Now, immediately after cloning it, I use jQuery to alert the title attribute, and it is in the new element. Then, when I view it using firefox, the title is gone, and obviously the tooltip cannot work.

<span class="date" title="May 14, 2009">14 May 2009</span> and I'd like JQuery script to output it as this:<span class="date" title="">May 14, 2009</span> Basically, I'm checking the browser language and I want to display all dates in US date format to all users with EN-CA and EN-US browser language (and UK format to all other users). Please let me know if there is a better way of doing it, I couldn't find anything.
I'm wanting to take all links pointing to external urls and insert a title tag with some text that I can then turn into a mouseover tooltip effect.The purpose is simple, we want to inform the visitor that by clicking on the link they would be taken away to another site. The warning message would be in the title tag.
Each external hyperlink already has an rel="external" tag so I can work off of that. This gives me:
As my element identifier. Now, in trying to insert this title tag, i've explored the append and appendTo but those refer to adding items to the end. I need the method that inserts this in between the <a></a> tags as it's own part of the hyperlink code. which method I should use to add something like this:
title="Clicking this link will take you away from this site"
I've even thought of possibly appending it as a hidden <span> item then revealing it on the mouseover.
One bit of additional info, i'm using Wordpress and want this to automatically deploy on all specified elements automatically.
I'm using jQuery Tooltip plugin (url) and need to access title attribute of element which plugin is applied to. As you know all title attributes are removed when tooltip function is applied, is there any way how to access them?
Anyone know if there's a simple way of revealing all elements on a page that have a title attribute? I want to stick a script in a favelet to use as a development tool (highlight all titled elements with red border, etc)
I don't want it to be limited just to links or form elements.
If there's not something already out there, I'll probably have a hack at some existing favelets I have on my site, but no harm in asking if one's out there already, eh?
I was having difficulties storing text in the title attribute when it contained special characters.My workaround was to use escape/unescape.Is this the best way to resolve this?Why is it okay to include special characters in the alert function (i.e. Doesn't work), but not in the title attribute?
I'm trying to append the title attribute to the text of my link. I've got it working, except for the fact that all three links are showing the first link's attribute. Check out the demo at http://outdoor/fuelmultimedia.ca Hover over the Products menu item, and you'll see the drop-down with the attributes.This is the code I'm currently using:
var $titleText = $("#top nav ul ul li a").attr("title"); $("#top nav ul ul li a").append("<em>" + $titleText + "</em>");
I'm new to jquery so I'm having a bit of an issue cloning a table row and having all of the id's change correctly. I'm able to clone a row with no problem and change the id of the tr after clicking a button by doing this:
var newId = document.getElementById("id").value; // This works because I am using a hidden input for my id $(id).clone().attr("id", "row" + newId).insertAfter("#div_id");// This changes the id of row The problem I am having is when I want to change the other id's inside of the tr. After insertAfter() I'll do the following: .find("span").text("Item" + newId).find("#Item_A" + oldId).attr("id", "Item_A" + newId);
The first .find will change the text with no problem, its when I get to Item_A that it will keep the old id instead of incrementing to the new id. Yes, I am declaring oldId as a variable and assigning it as newId - 1. Any ideas on how to make sure all id's are incremented properly?
I need to .clone() sections in a dynamic form, but get problems withthe radio buttons in IE.To work as a group, the radio buttons need to have the same name (persection). This is accomplished by changing the name attribute aftercloning a hidden section in a <div>. Easy with jQuery! - and it workswith FF, Opera, Chrome, Safari...IE however, does not allow changing of name attribute dynamically, andtreats all radio buttons across the sections as part of the samegroup!!Does anyone know of a workaround, preferably using jQUery, andavoiding browser sniffing and low-level DOM programming?
I am currently using this function to clone rows in my table when a user clicks 'add row'
The problem is, obviously, cloning the row also clones any of the data that the user may have already entered. I need to just clone the elements of the row, not the user entered data. Is there a way to remove all data from a row before it is cloned?
I have a form where you can enter 1 player's data, press a button and that DIV gets cloned below with same ID names but numbers get augmented (ie firstName_1 in div player_1 becomes firstName_2 in player_2). My problem now is I have a Gender radio button and that if you fill out the gender question and then press the 'Add Player' button the checked status seems to disappear from the cloner div but is retained in the clonee div.
IE you can set gender_1 to 'Male' in div player_1 (checked with DOM inspector and console logging) but when stepping thru the code in firebug
i have found a possible bug in 1.4 but it's only in Internet Explorer 7 & 8.The following code does not work and completely ruins every peice of jquery on the page (that means everything inside $(document).ready and anyting else...
I cant see any syntax errors - i pulled the example from the 1.4 site. There is no trailing commas in the object notation and i really cant see any reason it would work in firefox and not IEx and more to the point not only not work in IEx but break any other jquery in the entire page....
I'm working with a large (and unweildy) ASP.NET application, and there is a lot of jQuery code that uses selectors like this:
[name=_aspnetControl$_withASubControl] And unfortunately, some selectors that also look like this:
In other words, the effort to remove the $ from the attribute selectors would be monumental. If it is possible to escape the $ symbols, I can do that easily enough, but unfortunately the situation right now means that I can't upgrade to jQuery 1.5.
I'm learning jQuery with XML. I'm familiar with other query languages such as XPath. I'm having a little bit of difficulty wrapping my brain around how jQuery works but I think I can make the leap if I see a solution to a problem I know how to solve with other methods Given the following XML, please share a jQuery solution to finding the value of attribute B in elements named bar where attribute A has the value 30:
This page: [URL] seems to indicate that it's possible, but it looks like it also pops up an alert window which would be annoying as hell. Is there a way to, say, once every minute change the title bar text?
You see I have a text file of rotating slogans that appear each time you reload a page on my site and someone suggested that having them change even when the page is already open might be fun. I thought I'd look into it and see if it's possible. The site is [URL]
so the story is that i using and IFRAME in my web site , and i want the main title of the document (which appears in the browser title bar) to be the title from the iframe 'page' . my English is not so good so i 'll give an example .
I believe I found an accessibility issue with superfish. I have the "sf- menu" ul as the child of another list item. After tabbing through the entire sf-menu, it disappears. How might I fix this? This is happening in both IE and firefox. It is nested as follows. ul -> li -> ul sf-menu
