Invoking Methods

The methods can be invoked the same way as the properties are accessed. The following syntaxes defines the ways to invoke the public methods of the widgets.

  • javascript
  • // First way
    var obj = $("jquery-selector").data("ej-plugin-name"); // [RECOMMENDED METHOD]
    obj.methodName(param1, param2, param3, ...)
    //Example
    var gaugeObject = $("#gauge").data("ejCircularGauge");
    gaugeObject.setPointerValue(0, 0, 50);
    
    // Second way
    $("jquery-selector").ej-plugin-name("functionName");
    //Example
    $("#myDate").ejDatePicker("getValue" );
    
    // Third way
    $("jquery-selector").ej-plugin-name("functionName", "param1", "param2", );
    //Example
    $("#gauge").ejCircularGauge("setPointerValue", "0", "0", "30");
