    Hi I’m trying to code at simple show/hide div like


    _parent = $(this).parent();
    _elm = $(_parent).find(".box");

    This is working fine. But I would like to toggle the “clickme text”
    Something like this:

    But I can’t code it right …

    Hi SgtLegend
    In your demo I see two click text.
    My goal is something like this:

    Show box


    If I see the content in the “box” the click-text will be “Hide box”

    Is this what you are after?

    I have updated the fiddle to respect your goal

    @SgtLegend Any reason you are using the each method instead of caching the elements as a variable? I don’t know that much about jQuery, so it is probably something simple.

    Right, thanks for that @kgscott284!

    The $.each method simply allows for more flexibility and more maintainable code, personally i always choose it over calling a collection of elements unless its very simple like:

    $('element').on('click', function() {
    $('input:checkbox').attr('checked', function() {
    return !$(this).is(':checked');

    In this case calling the $.each method would be a waste since we can do a simple evaluation of the :checked status on the checkboxes, the same concept applies to the box toggle code.

    @SgtLegend Would you mind explaining how it allows for more flexible and maintainable code?

    I know it’s been a while since my last post which probably seems fishy but I have just been busy, to see what i mean by my above comments see the following jsFiddle which has a built in feature that allows the boxes to open by default.
