Am i able to execute jQuery code in Target?

is it possible to execute jQuery code from the custom code box within Target for specific experiences? The website has the jQuery library loaded already.

I am trying to do some simple things like $('body').hide(); commands, but no such luck. The end result is to use ajax

stevemalko​ Yes its possible to execute jQuery using the custom code section. The same has been documented at Modifications overview and there are samples provided as well in that document .

Hope this helps answer your question.

Thanks. the mistake I was making was not wrapping it in a document.ready function. once I did that, everything worked, including ajax calls

Thats pretty much what I would have done as well. Check if jQuery was "ready".

Using custom code, you can almost do whatever we do on a HTML page so you can jquery or JavaScript code enclosed within a <script> tag.

Note: if you are using some functions of jquery then make sure the relevant jquery file is present on the page.

Are you loading jquery after target on the web page ?
