running a javascript function inside jquery


Recommended Posts



I have the following line:

$.fn.colorbox({inline:'true', href:'#content-area',width:'700px', height:getHeight() });


From the following code:

var boxHeight = document.getElementById('content-area').clientHeight;
function getHeight(){
    boxHeight += 90;
return  boxHeight = boxHeight + "px";    
if(boxHeight > 200){
$.fn.colorbox({inline:'true', href:'#content-area',width:'700px', height: getHeight() });


jquery fn.colorbox just would not run if I put getHeight() in it. Any ways to go around it or fix it?

Well it looks to me like you're trying to get the object before it's even been created. Try this:



var boxHeight;function getHeight(){    boxHeight += 90;    return boxHeight = boxHeight + "px";   }$(document).ready(function(){    boxheight = $('content-area').height();    if (boxheight > 200){        $.fn.colorbox({inline:'true', href:'#content-area',width:'700px', height: getHeight() });    }});
