Jquery Callback Without Anonymous Function

/ Published in: JavaScript
Save to your folder(s)

Is very inefficient to attach a anonymous function event handlers to multiple items in a selection. The function is duplicated for each element.

This shows how you can just create a single function and in the event handler callback just call that function.

Copy this code and paste it in your HTML
  1. $('dt').find('a').click(doit);
  3. function doit(e)
  4. {
  5. //e - is event object passed in
  6. e.preventDefault();
  7. //this - is the element this func is attached to
  8. alert($(this).attr('href');
  9. }
