Initialization


  var elem = document.querySelector('.tap-target');

  });
          

Options

Name Type Default Description
onOpen Function null Callback function called when Tap Target is opened.

Methods

Because jQuery is no longer a dependency, all the methods are called on the plugin instance. You can get the plugin instance like this:


  var instance = M.TapTarget.getInstance(elem);

  /* jQuery Method Calls
    You can still use the old jQuery plugin method calls.
    But you won't be able to access instance properties.

    $('.tap-target').tapTarget('methodName');
    $('.tap-target').tapTarget('methodName', paramName);
  */
            
.open();

Open Tap Target


  instance.next();
  instance.next(3); // Move next n times.
          

.close();

Close Tap Target


  instance.close();
          

.destroy();

Destroy plugin instance and teardown


  instance.destroy();
