I have the following code but how would you convert it into a jQuery namespace

JQUERY4U = {
    multiply: function(x,y) {
        return (x * y);
    }
}
//function call
JQUERY4U.multiply(2,2);

Use the jQuery.fn.extend method:
jQuery.fn.extend({
    multiply: function(x,y) {
        return (x * y);
    }
});

Open in new window


or you can declare your new method as:
$.fn.multiply= function(){
  return (x * y);
}

Open in new window


Note: The first alternative is more flexible and reusable as discussed below:

Hi,

could look like this:
var JQUERY4U = {}; 
;(function($) {

     JQUERY4U.EESample= {
         multiply: function(x,y) {
        return (x * y);
         }
     }
     
})(jQuery);
JQUERY4U.EESample.multiply(2,2);

Open in new window
