Hi

So i have an jQuery that works fine when it is within a static HTML page but I need to have the accordion loading into a div via ajax how do i  adapt the code bellow to achieve this.

Note in the test i'm using a button to bring in the accordion via a perl script in reality i use another event to submit a query./

	    change: function (e, ui) {
	      $url = $(ui.newHeader[0]).children('a').attr('href');
	      $.get($url, function (data) {
                 console.log(data);
	         $(ui.newHeader[0]).next().html(data);
              });
            }
	  });
	});

Try this :
<script>                                             
	$(function() {
		$("#button").click(function(){
			alert ("Nng1");
			$("#test").load('cgi-bin/ac.pl', function() {
				alert ("Nng2");
				$( "#accordion" ).accordion({
					collapsible: true, 
					active : false, 
					change: function (e, ui) {
						$url = $(ui.newHeader[0]).children('a').attr('href');
						$.get($url, function (data) {
							console.log(data);
							$(ui.newHeader[0]).next().html(data);
						});
					}
				});
			});
		});
	});
</script>

http://api.jquery.com/load/
http://api.jquery.com/get/
http://api.jquery.com/post/
http://api.jquery.com/getJSON/

are shorcuts of :

http://api.jquery.com/ajax/

$("#putTheContentHere").load("whichPage.ext", { "ImHereSoItWillUsePOST": "1234" }, mycallback);

Open in new window

same as :
$.ajax({ type:"POST", url:"whichPage.ext", data:{ "ImHereToo": "1234" }, success:mycallback});
var mycallback = function(data) { $("#putTheContentHere").html(data); }
