Select Element Only if Children are Not Animated

var myChildrenBehave =  $(".element").filter(function() {
  var filtered = $(this).children().not(":animated");
  return filtered;
 });

This selects the element only if its children behave (not being animated). Very helpful on a drop down menu (on hover or click)

  • Use Markdown, and it will escape the code for you, like `<div class="cool">`.
  • Use triple-backticks for blocks of code.
    ``` 
    <div>
      <h1>multi-line block of code</h1>
      <span>be cool yo.</span>
    </div>
    ```
  • Otherwise, escape your code, like <code>&lt;div class="cool"&gt;</code>. Markdown is just easier though.
