Another next function. either: $().nextOf() or $().verynext(sel)

I think a good next function would be one that can find the Very next element that matches the selector.. For example: $("input[checkbox]").veryNext("input[checkbox]") would find only One elment that is the very next checkbox, either a Next sibling OR a descendent of a next sibling.

I think this is what people like me assume .next(sel) does, but it does not. Also Note that the "component" drop down below does not have a "traversing" item.

Why is this function needed? If I have a table of checkboxes, With the first column checkbox "enabling" the next column, it would be easier to implement with this function since the checkboxes are nested inside <tr><td> tags.

My selectors are written wrong, I mean: $(this).veryNext("[input=checkbox]"). (this being the currently selected Checkbox: which Could also be nested) Also the "veryNext" thing would Not need to be A direct next sibling, it should go to the next element and its children and so on until it finds a match or the end of the document and return null if nothing is found.

An example of the DOM where this might be used:


<tr><td><input type="checkbox" onclick=" $(this).veryNext("[input=checkbox]").attr("disabled","");"/> </td><td><input type="checkbox"></td></tr>


Basically, checking the first checkbox would enable the 2nd checkbox..

Ignoring my obvious logical/synatax errors.

$('foo').next() does this.
