jQuery Question

jquery create a unique id

$(document).ready(function() {
$('a.menuitem').click(function() {
var arr = 0;
var link = $( this ), url = link.attr( "href" );
var newDiv = $( document.createElement( 'div' ) )
$( "#content_pane" ).append( newDiv );
newDiv.load( url );
return false;
});
});


As you can see I am creating a
div
and adding some content to it, how would I give each
div
that is created a unique id, something like section1, section2, section3, etc?

Answer

Just use a counter:

var section = 1;
$(function() {
  $("a.menuitem").click(function() {
    ...
    $("<div></div>").attr("id", "section" + section++).appendTo("#content_pane");
    ...
    return false;
  });
});

Also, I'd suggest creating the element as per above.
