.next element

I'm trying to figure a way of adding content to the next element after click, so that on click of a button it will find the next matching element and put the results of an ajax response in the matching div, currently Im just going to put some text in.

I thought I could just use:-
$('.menuElemT').click(function () {
    $(this).next('.menuElemL').html('hi-1');
});

Open in new window


So using the html:-
<div class='menuElemT'>Tickets</div>
    <div class='menuElemS'>
        <div class='menuElemL'></div>
        <div class='menuElemR'></div>
    </div>
<div class='menuElemT'>Assetts</div>
    <div class='menuElemS'>
        <div class='menuElemL'></div>
        <div class='menuElemR'></div>
    </div>
<div class='menuElemT'>Reports</div>
    <div class='menuElemS'>
        <div class='menuElemL'></div>
        <div class='menuElemR'></div>
    </div>
</div>

Open in new window


And using the jQuery code:-
$('.menuElemT').click(function () {
    $(this).next('.menuElemL').html('hi-1');
});

Open in new window


By clicking on the div .menuElemT with the content 'Assetts' it should turn it to:-
<div class='menuElemT'>Tickets</div>
    <div class='menuElemS'>
        <div class='menuElemL'>Hi-1</div>
        <div class='menuElemR'></div>
    </div>
<div class='menuElemT'>Assetts</div>
    <div class='menuElemS'>
        <div class='menuElemL'></div>
        <div class='menuElemR'></div>
    </div>
<div class='menuElemT'>Reports</div>
    <div class='menuElemS'>
        <div class='menuElemL'></div>
        <div class='menuElemR'></div>
    </div>
</div>

Open in new window


However when I tie it all together, it doesnt seem to be able to find the element to put 'hi' into:-

I dont understand why .next doesnt work.

jQuery.next don't find children, next try to match the NEXT node with the argument no more no less.

Check this : http://jsfiddle.net/72DUL/1/

$('.menuElemT').click(function () {
    $(this).next('.menuElemS').find(".menuElemL").html('hi-1');
});

$('.menuElemL').click(function () {
    $(this).next('.menuElemR').html('hi-2');
});
