How to change href on an a link and dynamically change this using pageshow

April 26, 2013

A very very useful event handler that I have found in JQuery Mobile is the pageshow. It’s useful for when you want to update something inside a function due to a page cahnge or page transition. It acts as a response to a page change and becomes active. Here I wrote code that can update the href link of a#register if you switch between the home page and the register page which changes to #registerpage and #homepage respectively!

  $(document).ready(function() {
            $(‘#homepage’).on(‘pageshow’, function() {
                $(“a#register”).attr(‘href’, ‘#registerpage’);
            $(‘#registerpage’).on(‘pageshow’, function() {
                $(“a#register”).attr(‘href’, ‘#homepage’);


Hope that helps!
