timing of when the jquery runs

I have some jquery that runs on a page.

I also have a div that I am setting the inner HTML for on the page load.

The jquery uses the text inside this div to make a decision.

But, the jquery runs before the text gets set, so it is not able to do what is intended.

Is there a way to ensure the jquery runs after the div inner HTML is set?

Yes, move the pageload code into a $(document).ready() block. Anything in the .ready block will execute before an onload event fires. Onload fires once the page has been rendered by .ready fires when the page has been loaded.

The other option would be to run the jquery function inside the body onload, but I like the first option more.

That's the thing...right now it is inside the .ready() function...and it is not working right.

Here is where I am assigning the values in PageLoad on the server side with ASP.NET / C#:

   protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {        

        bool showonlyinstorepickup = IWEBConfigAdmin.AllowInStorePickupOnly;

        string instorepickupdescription = IWEBConfigAdmin.InStorePickupDescription;

        if (showonlyinstorepickup)
        {
            showinstorediv.InnerHtml = instorepickupdescription;
        }
        else
        {
            showinstorediv.InnerHtml = "false";
        }


//////////////   THEN I WANT THE JQUERY TO RUN

I even tried taking the jQuery code and putting it in a <script> block at the bottom of the master page, just above the ending </body> tag -----  and it made no difference.

Putting it in page_load does not put it in a jquery .ready() block. If you don't want to change this code, then you will need to put the jquery code in a function and call that function from the page load.

Add below tag in <head></head> tag
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.4/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
i.e
<head>
 <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.4/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
 <script>
   $(document).ready(function(){
     alert($("#showinstorediv").html());
   });
   </script>
</head>

Open in new window


Above code will alert the message containing text within div

@sonawanekiran that code will have the same issue that he's having with the original post. The .ready block will run before the onload block so it won't show any html. The only way to fix this is to get the code to run after the completion of the onload code. This can only be done by moving one or the other. Either to move the onload into an .ready block so it can be ran before the other jquery code or the jquery code needs to be placed in a function and called after the page_load code.

The other option would be to move the jquery code into a .load block like:

$(document).ready( function() {
    $('body').load(function() {
        //original jquery code goes here
    });
});

Open in new window


This might have unexpected results though since I'm not familiar enough with .net to know when/how the page_load function will run.

What do you think about this possible interim solution?

 var loc = window.location.href;
        if (loc.indexOf("checkoutlegacy") != -1)
        {
            $.ajax({
                type: "POST",
                url: "WebGlobalMethods.asmx/SetToInStorePickupOnly",
                contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                dataType: "json",
                success: function (msg)
                {                   
                    if (msg.d != "false")
                    {
                        $("tr:not(:has(th),:contains('" + msg.d + "'))", "table[id*='gvShipping']").hide();
                    }
                },
                error: LoadFailed
            });
        }

        function LoadFailed()
        {
        }

Open in new window



This code:

-ensures we're on the page where we want the jquery applied
-calls a web method to find-out from the server what the "mode" will be for displaying the table
-by convention, anything other than the value "false" results in the jQuery being applied

I've tried this out and it seems to work okay.

But -- is this a hokey way to handle this?

Seems fine from a javascript perspective. That selector seems a bit complicated, but if it's working, I don't think it's horrible.

I think this solution also would have worked, or was on the right track.
