Differentiate among .empty() vs .remove() vs .detach() in jQuery.
Here’s your answer:
- remove() – Removes all child elements with selected element. In this method you can restore all data but not event handlers of removed elements from the DOM. All data and events related with elements will be removed.
- empty() – Removes all content and child elements from the selected element. This method does not remove selected element.
- detach() – Removes all child elements with selected elements. Even though it keeps all data and event handlers of the removed elements. This method is preferred to remove elements but it keeps copy of the removed elements which we can reuse at a later time
