How to change an element s ID with jQuery

0 votes

These don't work:

jQuery(this).prev("li").attr("id")="newid"
jQuery(this).prev("li")="newid"

I found out that I can make it happen with the following code:

jQuery(this).prev("li")show(function() {
    this.id="newid";
});

But that doesn't seem right to me. Is there any better way? I need to change an element's ID using jQuery.

Hello @kartik,

Your syntax is incorrect, you should pass the value as the second parameter:

jQuery(this).prev("li").attr("id","newId");

Hope it works!!

Thank you!!
