#7368 closed enhancement (invalid)

Set index with index(number)

It would be nice if the index() method allowed you to set the index of the current element(s) also; currently you can only get the index of the first element relative to its siblings. index(0) would move all the elements before their siblings and index(-1) would move all elements after their siblings. And it would be even better if it wrapped, so that if there's three elements and you did index(3), it would place the element at the start.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a jsFiddle that outlines practical use cases for your enhancement request.

Additionally, test against the jQuery 0 GIT version to ensure the issue still exists. Be Excellent to eachother!

Here's a simple example with jsFiddle of how you could use this to easily be able to move elements with a couple of controls. http://jsfiddle.net/Pzpzr/

I will work on additional usage examples soon if this one isn't sufficient enough.

You can already do this very easily using .next, .previous, .after, and .before, as per this example. Could you please provide a novel use case?
