I’ve got the following scenario:
var el = 'li';
and there are 5
<li>‘s on the page each with a
data-slide=number attribute (number being 1,2,3,4,5 respectively).

var current = $('ul').data(current); and is updated on each slide change.

does not match/return anything…
The reason I can’t hardcode the
li part is that this is a user accessible variable that can be changed to a different element if required, so it may not always be an
Any ideas on what I’m missing?
You have to inject the value of
current into an Attribute Equals selector:
$("ul").find("[data-slide='" + current + "']");
