#3453 closed enhancement (invalid)

append() etc functions to accept many arguments

Reported by: antix Owned by: flesler
Priority: major Milestone: 1.3
Component: core Version: 1.2.6
Keywords: multiple arguments, append, prepend, before, after Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

for example

var $container = $("<div />");

var $input = $("<input />");

var $okButton = $("<button>Ok</button>");

var $CancelButton = $("<button>Cancel</button>");

$container.append($input, $okButton, $cancelButton);

This way you have references to the content to add events etc and only one call to append()

It would also apply to prepend(), before() and after()

to maintain the ability to change these functions in the future you could let it accept an array

for example

$container.append([$input, $okButton, $cancelButton]);

I'm not clear on what the enhancement is here; you can already pass multiple arguments to append, prepend, etc. by virtue of the code in jQuery.clean that checks for array-like arguments. This has worked for a long time:

   var a = $("<div>hello</div>");
   var b = $("<div>there</div>");
   var c = $("<div>guys</div>");

Since this already works as desired I'll close the ticket.
