Javascript Help Needed

When using javascript in custom field to display red, initially it is black and after sometime, it's become red.

It should be red initially , rather than black.

Any idea?

Here is my code.

<script type='text/javascript'>
AJS.$(document).ready(function() {
AJS.$("#customfield_113").css("color", "red");

That's the downside of using javascript. You have to wait for the resources to be loaded and executed. In your case, i think it would be easier to just put that in a stylesheet if there are no other conditions to check.

Hi Florin

Here is my complete code!!

Suggest appropriate methods are highly welcome

<script type="text/javascript">
JIRA.bind(JIRA.Events.NEW_CONTENT_ADDED, function (e,context) {
function callFunction(){
AJS.$("#customfield_113").css("color", "red");
AJS.$("#rowForcustomfield_113").addClass("item item-right");


Can we write in separate file?

I believe you can put color : red in a stylesheed included by your plugin. The classes however cannot, unless that customfield is built in-house.

They are custom field. I want to view that field in right hand side as well.

Any idea?

I belive that script is as good as it can get.

The only issue is - initially shown in left hand side and then right.

Any input from your side??
