    So I'm relatively, but not 100%, sure that wrapping jQuery around an arbitrary object isn't actually supported. If you look at the code that inits a jQuery based on (selector,context), you won't see any logic there for handling generic objects.

  • jQuery And Script Tags As Data Containers

    Posted on Jun 9, 2009 at 5:46 PM

    One of my favorite methods of the metadata plugin is with SerializeJSON and your favourite QueryToStruct implementation. If you are iterating through a query, it is easy to very tightly couple your data with your dom elements and spare yourself additional traversal later on when you need access to ... read more »
