<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function ()
    {
        $('#f1').css("border", "3px solid blue");
    });

</script>

instead of changing the css border style, I want to call a javascript function.  How do I do this?

I only want to call  Yourfunction(  ) based upon the existence of a tag with id of "f1"

$('#f1').Yourfunction();

I don't think that syntax is valid, but it expresses my intent.

In plain English it would say "Select all elements with id of f1 and then call Yourfunction( ) on each one (assuming you find at least ONE match)

I guess this works:

 $(document).ready(function ()
    {
        if ($('#f1').length > 0)
        {
            somefunction();
        }
    });

    function somefunction() {alert("hi");}


The alert message appears when I hit the page.


Is there a better / cleaner way to do this?

$(function(){  // you dont need the document ready stuff

$("f1").each(function(){

alert("hi");

});

});

Should alert hi for all f1 elements on load.

Just as an aside, if you have more than one f1, you should use a class not id. There should only be one unique id per page.

Glad I could help,
Cheers.
