This is not a duplicate question, I need only to decide if the better/fast/correct is to use
attr or to use
prop. The simplest and reliable way is checking into a list. A "list of element-name where the better is use
prop(name) and/or a list where the better is use
PS: I am using jQuery 1.9+, and suppose that
attr() is not a deprecated method.
Example of decisions (where the LIST have the answer):
- is better get ID value by
- is better change title with
- can I use
- what property names have risk with "Cross-browser consistency"?
- there are some case (with Microsoft-IE p.ex.) where
$(x).prop('name')will return different things?
Perhaps a full list is not necessary, only a list of things that make some difference or risk for jQuery.
