Setting the class of an object on load in jQuery

59 New Member
I am trying to set the class of a "<li>" based on if the page is loaded with an anchor. For example, if http://www.example.com/index.html#services is loaded, I would like to change the class of li#nav_services to current. (The html would be <li id="nav_service s" class="current" >Services</li> after the change). How would I do this using jQuery?

You can get #services using the location.hash property. Then to add a class, use the addClass method.

Okay, so if I have:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $(function(){
  2.     var path = location.pathname.substring(1);
  3.     if ( path )
  4.         $('.navbar a[@href$="' + path + '"]').attr('class', 'current');
  5. });
How do I get it to select the <li> that the <a> is nested in?

Using the ID selector #nav_services.
