Stuff I do my notepad

I want to put in this post some the jQuery methods that I found myself searching the web every other time i need them for the future reference.

Check if element exists:
if ($('#elementID').length > 0)
   // do somehting
Disable/enable element
$('#elementID').attr('disabled', 'disabled');
Clear DropdownList or ListBox
$('#ddl_ID >option').remove();
Add entry in the DropDownList or ListBox
Getting the text and value of the selected item in DropDownList
var selectedValue = $('#ddl_ID').val() or $('#ddl_ID option:selected').val() ;
var selectedText = $('#ddl_ID option:selected').text();
Check/uncheck checkbox:
$('#id]').attr('checked', true);
$('#id').attr('checked', false);
Check if checkbox is checked:
Check if element is disabled
Check if element is visible/hidden

There are a lot of resources available. I like Here is a nice topic - jQuery Tips and Tricks (

And there is one more to dig - jQuery HowTo (

more to come...
