jQuery - accessing attributes

Discussion in 'jQuery' started by Lammie71, Nov 6, 2019.

    Hello, if I have the following code how can I add the condition with jQuery:
    <a href="#" data-name="A1" data-city="0" class="abc">LONDON </a>
    <a href="#" data-name="A1" data-city="2" class="abc">MANCHESTER</a>
    Code (markup):
    So on the button click I want to test the data-values:
    i.e, if data-name=="A1" && data-name=="2" Then Do Something:

    I know I could use just data-city but I also need to check the data-city value

    In this case, clicking. on London no allow box would show but on clicking Manchester the alert box would show up.

    I have tried this but it doesn't work:

    $(".abc").bind("click", function(){
       if("a[data-name=='A2'] && a[data-city=='2']"){
          alert("That Works");
    Code (JavaScript):
    Please can someone help or advise me.

    Thanks in advance,

    Your code isn't going to work because you have a string inside the if statement. What I think you want is
    if(a['data-name']=='A2' && a['data-city']=='2'){
    Code (javascript):
    but even then I think you're going to have problems

    Google tells me this:
    so i'd rather see code that looks like this:
    $(".abc").on("click", function(event){
    //console.log($(this).attr('data-name')); // a good way to debug your code
    var dName = $(this).attr('data-name');
    var dCity = $(this).attr('data-city');
       if (dName === 'A1' && dCity === '2'){
       else {
       alert('no match');
