JQuery - Toggle Dynamic Content (Code Example Provided)

Posted on 2014-02-23
Last Modified: 2014-02-23
Hello All;

In this code, we can toggle 2 Fieldset's
However, when you click on either of the 2, they will both toggle down.
I need to only toggle the one that is clicked on.

Any assistance on this would be great.

Additional note:
This is just a test, there could be 2 - 50 of these, so it has to be completely dynamic.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html >
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script src=""></script>  
<script type='text/javascript'>//<![CDATA[ 
$( ".clickit" ).click(function() {
  $( "p" ).slideToggle( "slow" );
<style type="text/css">


<fieldset class="BandHolder" id="1" style="background-color:#000; color:#999;">
<legend><span><div class="clickit">Show 1</div></button></span></legend>
<p class="Show">
<span style="font-family:Georgia; font-size:10pt;">Information for the top 1 goes here</span>


<fieldset class="BandHolder" id="2" style="background-color:#000; color:#999;">
<legend><span><div class="clickit">Show 2</div></button></span></legend>
<p class="Show">
<span style="font-family:Georgia; font-size:10pt;">Information for the bottom 2 goes here</span>

How about this:
<script type='text/javascript'>//<![CDATA[ 
$( ".clickit" ).click(function() {
  $(this).parents().next("p").slideToggle( "slow" );

Open in new window

B.T.W., you have a </button> with no opening tag.

Thanks a BUNCH!!!!!!!!!!!
Yea, that Button got removed, as I replaced it with the DIV tag instead, and did not get it all moved out.

Once again, Thanks
You Rock!
