How to check/remove an element?



$(function(){

$("#tags input").on({
focusout : function() {
var txt = this.value.replace(/[^a-z0-9\+\-\.\#]/ig,''); // allowed characters
if(txt) $("<span/>", {text:txt.toLowerCase(), insertBefore:this});
this.value = "";
},
keyup : function(ev) {
// if: comma|enter (delimit more keyCodes with | pipe)
if(/(188|13|32)/.test(ev.which)){
$(this).focusout();
} else if (/(8)/.test(ev.which) && this.value == '' && $(this).prev("span").css('background-color')=="rgb(225, 0, 0)") {
$(this).prev("span").remove();
} else if (/(8)/.test(ev.which) && this.value == '') {
$(this).prev("span").css('background-color', 'Red');
}
}
});
$('#tags').on('click', 'span', function() {
$(this).remove();
});

});

#tags{
float:right;
border:1px solid #ccc;
padding:5px;
font-family:Arial;
}
#tags > span{

I want to remove a tag either by pressing backspace button (when the input is focused) or by clicking on that tag. Now I'm talking about the first option. Also I need to set it a red background color first (as "are you sure?" concept). Ok as you see, my fiddle sets it a red background color, but it doesn't remove it. what's wrong?

Answer

You'd have better to toggle a class and check for it, e.g:

$(function() {

  $("#tags input").on({
    focusout: function() {
      var txt = this.value.replace(/[^a-z0-9\+\-\.\#]/ig, ''); // allowed characters
      if (txt) $("<span/>", {
        text: txt.toLowerCase(),
        insertBefore: this
      });
      this.value = "";
    },
    keyup: function(ev) {
      // if: comma|enter (delimit more keyCodes with | pipe)
      if (/(188|13|32)/.test(ev.which)) {
        $(this).focusout();
      } else if (/(8)/.test(ev.which) && this.value == '' && $(this).prev("span").hasClass('toRemove')) { //<< check for class
        $(this).prev("span").remove();
      } else if (/(8)/.test(ev.which) && this.value == '') {
        $(this).prev("span").addClass('toRemove'); //<< add class
      } else {
        $(this).prevAll('.toRemove').removeClass('toRemove'); //<< remove class on keyup
      }
    }
  });
  $('#tags').on('click', 'span', function() {
    $(this).remove();
  });

});
