I am very late to the seen when it comes to jQuery, in many ways it’s time has passed. Still it is very popular, so I feel compelled to learn a thing or two about it, and author some content on it.
This post will be about the .add jQuery prototype method that is used on a collection to add some elements from one selection too another. Out of the gate this does not quite work as expected, but once you get how it works it is easy to see why it is helpful.
Say you are dealing with an html structurer that looks something like this:
You want to select the p elements that are attached to body, and in the section_one div, but NOT the section_two div, how would you do it? One way is to use $(selection).add.
Great way to build a custom collection of elements, making my one methods to do things like this might no be that time consuming, but it still takes time. I like the idea of just using whats out there to help speed things along, jQuery is just one of many time savers if I just take a moment to know what there is to work with.
