Jquery in Joomla Install

Hi all,

I have a module in a joomla installation which uses jquery.

Basically I have a link (with url='#') on one side of the page, when the user clicks this I use jquery to slide a div panel containing a form out.

However, when clicking it redirecting to the same url but with the # char appended?

Is this a setting I am missing? Has anyone else seen this?

	$('#profile-slide').click(function(){
		$("#floating-profile").animate({left: parseInt((state % 2 - 1) * (332)) + 'px'}, "slow");
    state++;
  });    

Open in new window


    	<div id="floating-profile">
           	<div class="tab"><a id="profile-slide" href="#"><img src="<?php echo $this->baseurl ?>/templates/<?php echo $this->template ?>/images/view-profile.png" alt="View my Profile"/></a></div>
            <div id="floating-content">
            	<jdoc:include type="modules" name="floating-profile"/>
        	</div>
    	</div>

refer to:
 $('#profile-slide').click(function(e){
$("#floating-profile").animate({left: parseInt((state % 2 - 1) * (332)) + 'px'}, "slow");
event.preventDefault();
state++;
}); 

Open in new window

you are passing it as "e", but referring to it as "event". So after the call to event.preventDefault() an error occurs and "state++" never gets called which is what is breaking your close/hide action as the formula you are using relies on the state var.
change event.preventDefault();
to e.preventDefault();


another thing, why use that formula and state var? why not just?
if ($("#floating-profile").position().left === 0) { $("#floating-profile").animate({left: "-=332px"}, "slow");}
else { $("#floating-profile").animate({left: "+=332px"}, "slow");}

Try adding this to your click function:
event.preventDefault();

Many thanks for this.

Ok it seems to be working fine on Chrome,

But in IE and Firefox, clicking to slide out works, but when the button is clicking to slide back in it is not working.

coudl this code cause this issue?

can be seen here, ive setup a default user;

login: mflynn pass: mflynn

on the left hand side you can see the view profile button.

hi PierreC,

I have just debugged using jquery and seen that I was missing passing the 'e' event tot he function.

I have changed this re freflect the above, but unfortunately it now still seems to be redirecting?

Hi Pierre,

Many thanks for this.

Sorry I should have seen this error. Many thanks.

The slide back is automatically added in to but obviously as it was erroring on the event it was not hooking this up.

Thanks again.
