  • jQuery Custom Data Attributes

    by David Clarke,

    Thanks for the presentation Wes. I just wanted to point out that jQuery supports custom data attributes in a more direct way. Instead of $("someSelector").attr("data-my-data"), using jQuery you can use $("someSelector").data("my-data"); which will automatically add the "data-" prefix. Also worth noting is a breaking change in jQuery 1.6 which uses camel case for accessing data attributes. Quoting the jQuery api documentation, "The treatment of attributes with embedded dashes was changed in jQuery 1.6 to conform to the W3C HTML5 specification."
