#5187881 Indexed Drawing - Is it always useless when every face should have its own no...

Posted by Ubik on 18 October 2014 - 03:05 PM

Models done in a "polygonal style" may very well have lots of faces that have more than three corners. It's easy to imagine spaceship or station models having lots of four-sided faces and it's not a big stretch to come up with designs with more complex flat surfaces. Still, if the models are simple and few enough, it really might not matter much at all.

#5059468 Loading PHP file into DIV via AJAX

Without having tested the code, Navall's solution looks otherwise good to me, but has a piece missing - you will have to re-setup the click handlers within a callback passed to load, because as the content of #result gets replaced, the new content will have no handlers set for any elements. This gets easily messy, because essentially you have to setup the click handler doing a load() within the callback of the said load().
However, there's an easier way: jQuery's on() allows you to attach the handler to the container element* with an additional selector that limits the handler to specific elements within the container:
// "#result a" has just been split into "#result" and "a"
$('#result').on('click', 'a', function() {
    return false;


* I'm assuming the element #result doesn't get replaced by DOM manipulation or load() or other change, as the idea is to attach the handler to a static element. It's good idea always to attach the handler to the innermost unchanging element, for example to #result in this case.
