How to set the css properties with its own data-attributes?

Tags: jquery,css,custom-data-attribute

Problem :

Say I have this little snippet:

<p data-color="red">Hello world</p>

An I want to set its color to its own data-attribute, like this:


    color: $(this).data('color')

For some reason, that doesn't work. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Solution :

this refers to something else, not to the p. Try putting it in a function.

$('p').css('color', function() { return $(this).data('color'); });
