add click event to multiple link items

this allows you to get every a element in a-div class and stop the link from loading, so you can do other things with it like run a function or something else

Functions used:


Wait for the document to be ready before running this.

$(document).ready(function(){ });


Attach a click event to all a elements inside the div with the class name a-div

$('.a-div a').click( function(event){ });


Stop the links from loading the href url



Show a browser prompt with the href value of the link

alert('you clicked ' + this);


<div class='a-div'>
<div class="list-group">

Nothing, to my way of thinking, is a better proof of a well ordered mind than a man's ability to stop just where he is and pass some time in his own company.
