Notes

  • If fallible is not specified or is false, fluid.container() will throw an error if the specified DOM node is not found.

Examples

In both of these examples, fluid.container() returns a jQuery object that wraps the DOM node with an id of "menu-content." In both cases, if the node is not found, an error will be thrown.

In both of these examples, fluid.container() returns a jQuery object that wraps the DOM node with a class of "autocomplete-container." In both cases, more than one such node is found, an error will be thrown.

In this examples, if no node in the DOM has an id of "no-such-id," fluid.container() will not throw an error since the second argument is true: the return value will simply be null.
