With my project getting bigger by the minute, i'm worried about inadvertently reusing id's in html elements. So i thought i should fully qualifying a jQuery selector path to make sure i don't access the wrong elements.
Is there a marked performance hit increase when fully qualifying a jQuery selector path then just specifying the element id alone?
$('#workorder-form #sa-table-1 tr #wi-UnitPrice') vs $('#workorder-form #wi-UnitPrice') vs $('#wi-UnitPrice')
I prefer to use the highest level id with the target id - $('#workorder-form #wi-UnitPrice') - because things don't break as easily when your changing mid level id's in the css script.
