Here is my code:


$jadmin("#page_template_select select").change(function () {

    var selected_meta_box = '#' + (($jadmin(this).find("option:selected").attr("role")).replace(/ /g, "_")).toLowerCase();

    $jadmin("#page_template_select select option").each(function () {

        if ($jadmin(this).text() != "Default") {

        var meta_box = $jadmin(this).attr("role").replace(/ /g, "_").toLowerCase();

        $jadmin('div#' + meta_box).hide();

        }

    });

    $jadmin(selected_meta_box).show();

});

Why do I get this error?

Uncaught syntax error, unrecognised expression: #

I don’t get how it can call a string an expression.

Been trying to diagnose for 2 hours and I can’t find a solution, please help!

Try

$jadmin("#page_template_select select").change(function () {

    var selected_meta_box = (($jadmin(this).find("option:selected").attr("role")).replace(/ /g, "_")).toLowerCase();

    $jadmin("#page_template_select select option").each(function () {

        if ($jadmin(this).text() != "Default") {

        var meta_box = $jadmin(this).attr("role").replace(/ /g, "_").toLowerCase();

        $jadmin('div#' + meta_box).hide();

        }

    });

    $jadmin('#' + selected_meta_box).show();

});

Didn’t work :(

It only works without the each function like this:


$jadmin("#page_template_select select").change(function () {

    var selected_meta_box = (($jadmin(this).find("option:selected").attr("role")).replace(/ /g, "_")).toLowerCase();

    $jadmin('#' + selected_meta_box).show();

});

So its something wrong with that.

Weird, your code seems to work in this fiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/sevenspark/8pYUy/1/

Yesss! I fixed it. There was somehow an extra interation in the each loop. So when jquery tried to hide it, it didnt exist so threw an error. Weird though as this never usually happens, its like my code was haunted by an AS3 compiler.
