Hi,

I have a few divs

<div id="help_a">a</div>
<div id="help_b">b</div>
<div id="help_c">c</div>
<div id="help_d">d</div>

When the page loads I have a function that is supposed to hide all of them (but doesn't work):

$(function() {
  $("div[id^='help_']").each(function() {
      this.id.hide();
  });
});

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!
