Once ready event is fired, it has nothing to do. It is useful in dynamically loading scripts before the ready starts. It release ready event execution when used with a true parameter.

Q-42).What is the use of jquery .each() function?
 Basically, the jQuery .each() function is used to loop through each element of the target jQuery object. Very useful for multi element DOM manipulation, looping arrays and object properties.
 In this example alert box will open 3 times because dom contain 3 <li> tags

    $(document).ready(function () {
        $("button").click(function () {
            $("li").each(function () {


Q-43).If you have a server control( server control, Button) and on the click of button you want to call a jquery function, So how you will call a jquery function without postback?
 ASP.NET provides the OnClientClick property to handle button clicks. You can use this property on Button, LinkButton and ImageButton. The same OnClientClick property also allows you to cancel a postback.
 So I can use OnClientClick property and Jquery function will return false.
<script type="text/javascript">
    function callMe() {
        return false;
 <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" OnClientClick="return callMe();" Text="Button" />

Q-44).What is the use of .Size() method in Jquery?
 Jquery's .size() method returns number of element in the object. That means that you can count the number of elements within an object.

Q-45).What is the difference between jquery.size() and jquery.length?
 Jquery.size() and jquery.length both returns the number of element found in the object. But, jquery.length is faster than jquery.size() because size() is a method but length is a property.

 jQuery-x.x.x.js = Pretty and easy to read Smile Read this one.
 jQuery.x.x.x min.js = Looks like jibberish! But has a smaller file size. Put this one on your site for fast loading and less size.

Q-48).How to get the server response from an AJAX request using Jquery?
 When invoking functions that have asynchronous behavior We must provide a callback function to capture the desired result. This is especially important with AJAX in the browser because when a remote request is made, it is indeterminate when the response will be received.
Below an example of making an AJAX call and alerting the response (or error):
         url: 'pcdsEmpRecords.php',
         success: function (response) {
         error: function (xhr) {
             alert('Error! Status = ' + xhr.status);

Q-49).Do we need to add the JQuery file both at the Master page and Content page as well?
 No, if the Jquery file has been added to the master page then we can access the content page directly without adding any reference to it.
 This can be done using this simple example
<script type="text/javascript" src="jQuery-1.4.1-min.js"></script>

Q-50).Difference between onload() and document.ready() function used in jQuery?
 We can add more than one document.ready() function in a page.
 we can have only one onload function.
 Document.ready() function is called as soon as DOM is loaded.
 body.onload() function is called when everything (DOM, images)gets loaded on the page.
