It already says this, what is unclear?

A Boolean (not just truthy/falsy) value to determine whether the class should be added or removed.

jQuery UI extensions are covered in the jQuery UI docs, not in the core docs.

jquery docs says "... (not just truthy/falsy)" and jquery-ui only supports Boolean. If it is not a boolean, jquery-ui tries to use this value as animation.

Please use something like this instead of "(not just truthy/falsy)":

"since jquery-ui overwrites this method, it is recommended to use a boolean object."

jquery-ui source of toggleClass:


I know that jquery-ui is not part of jquery. But many people use it.

Thanks for submitting a ticket to the jQuery bug tracker. As Dave as mentioned earlier, extensions to jQuery UI are covered in their docs  http://jqueryui.com/demos/. To request any changes to these docs, please file a ticket here as this tracker is for core issues only:  http://bugs.jqueryui.com/
