Description

It would be nice to have a method to find out what the index number of current active item is. An example use for this is to programatically activate the next or previous item.

As a workaround you can use this bit of code:

var accordion = $(".accordion");
var items = $.map(accordion.find("dt"),
    function(a) { return $(a).hasClass("ui-state-active"); });
var active = $.inArray(true, items);

Replying to wichert:

As a workaround you can use this bit of code:

var accordion = $(".accordion");
var items = $.map(accordion.find("dt"),
    function(a) { return $(a).hasClass("ui-state-active"); });
var active = $.inArray(true, items);

If you place this code in the following way, it always produces -1:

$("#accordion").accordion({

header: "h3", fillSpace: true, change: function(event, ui) {

var accordion = $(".accordion"); var items = $.map(accordion.find("dt"),

function(a) { return $(a).hasClass("ui-state-active"); });

var active = $.inArray(true, items); alert(active); }

});

The JQuery should not only make "active" work, but the documentation should be clearer about what properties are set up for

ui.newHeader jQuery object, activated header

ui.oldHeader jQuery object, previous header

ui.newContent jQuery object, activated content

ui.oldContent jQuery object, previous content

In fact the very simplest workround is to add a unique class to each header with click( fn ) (or hover event) attached to it. That will enable a value to be assigned to a variable or initiate an action.
