How to move an element into another parent element using jQuery?

An important piece to the puzzle when coding with jQuery is that how can one move elements using jQuery around the DOM tree. For instance of there is a paragraph within one div element and you want to move that paragraph inside some other div element then how will you do it with jQuery. Not to worry, it is very easy.

Despite the fact that there are no special methods design for moving elements inside the DOM tree you can do it with ease by selecting the element that has to be moved and after that make a call to appendTo(), append() or prepend() methods so that the selected elements will be added to the other parent elements.

jQuery has the feature to by default identify the presence of the elements in the web page and moves those elements to the new parent element. Here is the syntax on how you can make use of the appendTo () function for moving elements:

1
$(content).appendTo (selector);

• Content in the syntax refers to the content that has to be moved (should contain html tags).If the content field that you mention is an element already existing in the webpage then this element will be moved from its current position and will be appended at the end of the elements you specify in the selector.

• Selector in the syntax specifies on which elements the already existing elements are to be moved in.
