Filter example in JQuery docs

  • # June 5, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    Please explain how the following jquery snippet works

    Jquery docs says this code will alter the first list item only, as it contains exactly one “strong” tag

    I am confused about the “this” part in the following line of code. I believe “this” returns “li”elements and I can not correlate it with strong

    return $(‘strong’, this).length == 1;

    $(element, context)<br />

    So $('strong', this) is equivalent to $(this).find('strong')

    The snippet you’ve provided will return every <li> that contains a <strong> element.
