How to create a function?

  • # January 22, 2009 at 8:36 am

    I’d like to make my jQuery a bit more smart by creating functions instead of repeating myself over and over. Take this code as an example:

    $(‘#box1’).animate({width: 300, height: 250}, 1000);
    $(‘#box1’).animate({opacity: 0.75}, 2000);

    Now, I’d like to do the very same two animations for another object plus I need the #button (what do you call this element in this example? Trigger?) to be something else. How will I do this best?

    Have you seen the screen-casts on jQuery? I think the second one could help you out. Chris shows you how to make you own functions. I highly recommend it for solving your problem, if you haven’t already watched it. … -jquery-2/
