jQuery before leaving a page (ASP MVC3 framework)

Hey Experts,

I was wondering if it is possible to make some jQuery code run on the current page when a link to another page is clicked.

For instance, I have a menubar, and when someone clicks a link to another page, I want some elements to float off of the current page with jQuery's animate method before the other page loads.

I'm using the ASP.NET MVC3 framework.

Is it possible to do this?

Also, is it possible to change the javascript methods that are run depending on which page is going to another page? For instance, some code will only run if the person is on the home page and is loading the Contact page.

Thanks,

-Jeff

You need to change the default behaviour of a link
http://api.jquery.com/animate/

$('#clickme').click(function(e) {
  $('#book').animate({
    opacity: 0.25,
    left: '+=50',
    height: 'toggle'
  }, 5000, function() {
    location = $(this).attr("href");
  });
  return false;
});

That will likely leave the page immediately!

"No solutions, and this wasn't helpful" - was even less helpful.

Perhaps you could respond to suggestions detailing the issue you have with the code and we can help you better?

Did you even try my suggestion?

Mplungjan suggestion is certainly a good starting point, and without additional feedback could easily be the solution. Points should be awarded.

I am fine with no points, but the closing comments was not very nice.
