jQuery: Replace element

Question by Compi | 2012-07-12 at 19:12

I would like to replace a full element of my HTML code with jQuery.

How to exchange the contents of an element, I already know:

var newcontent = 'New Content';
$('#element').empty().append(newcontent);

However, I want, that the entire element with a specific id will be replaced. So, the old element should disappear completely the new one should appear at this point. Is there a way?

Yes you can.

Just try using the following code:

$('#element').replaceWith('<div>New Element!</div>');

With this, you swap the old element with the id "element" to the new element (the HTML code in brackets) completely.
