Removing jQuery UI Accordion


I am utilizing the jQuery UI, the accordion specifically. I wanted to add a "remove" button to each accordion that would hide it.

My current code just sets the visibility to hidden on the div. But, I need to completely remove the accordion.

Here is how I have my html laid out.

<div class="my-accordion"> <h3>Accordion 1</h3> <div>


<div class="remove">REMOVE</div> </div> <h3>Accordion 2</h3> <div>


<div class="remove">REMOVE</div> </div> <h3>Accordion 3</h3> <div>


<div class="remove">REMOVE</div> </div> </div>

And, here is my jQuery.

$(function() { $( ".my-accordion" ).accordion(); }); // This is a giant failure. $('.remove').click(function(e) { $(this).parent().hide(); e.preventDefault(); });


$('.remove').click(function(e) { var parent = $(this).parent('div'); parent // parent div of REMOVE .prev('h3') // catch previous h3 .andSelf() // parent div .remove(); // remove both parent div and h3 });

<strong><a href="http://jsfiddle.net/BfKUg/2/" rel="nofollow">DEMO</a></strong>

To remove the parent div use <strong><a href="http://api.jquery.com/remove" rel="nofollow">.remove()</a></strong>.

<strong>OR in a row</strong>

$('.remove').click(function(e) { $(this).parent('div').prev('h3').andSelf().remove(); });

<strong><a href="http://jsfiddle.net/BfKUg/3/" rel="nofollow">DEMO</a></strong>


It would be better if you can wrap each accordion within a div wrapper like below:


<div class="my-accordion"> <div class="accordion-wrapper"> <h3>Accordion 1</h3> <div>


<div class="remove">REMOVE</div> </div> </div> ..... </div>

and change the jQuery code like:

$('.remove').click(function(e) { $(this).parents('div.accordion-wrapper').remove(); });
