    Fade in/out text in same div by clicking link

    I'm trying to have different sets of text fade in/out in the same div by clicking various song names in a playlist in JPlayer (JQuery based audio player). JPlayer link: http://jplayer.org/

    Diagram:


    This is my code so far:

    JPlayer:
    Code:
    <head>
        ...
        ...
        <!--jPlayer playlist-->
            <script type="text/javascript">
                //<![CDATA[
                $(document).ready(function(){
               
                    new jPlayerPlaylist({
                        jPlayer: "#jquery_jplayer_1",
                        cssSelectorAncestor: "#jp_container_1"
                    }, [
                        {
                            title:"<span class='bold white m3'>Song 3</span>",
                            mp3:"___",
                            oga:"___"
                        },
                        {
                            title:"<span class='bold white m2'>Song 2</span>",
                            mp3:"___",
                            oga:"___"
                        },
                        {
                            title:"<span class='bold white m1'>Song 1</span>",
                            mp3:"___",
                            oga:"___"
                        }
                       
                    ], {
                        swfPath: "../js",
                        solution:"html,flash",
                        supplied: "oga, mp3",
                        wmode: "window"
                    });
                });
                //]]>
            </script>
    
    ...
    </head>
    Each playlist item has a class "m1" "m2" etc.

    JS:
    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    
    $(document).ready(function() {
    			
    	$('.m1').click(function() {
    	        displayNone();
    	        showWindow("text1");
            } );	
    	$('.m2').click(function() {
    		displayNone();
    		showWindow("text2");
    	} );
            $('.m3').click(function() {
    		displayNone();
    		showWindow("text3");
    	} );
    
            function displayNone() {
    		$('#text1,#text2,#text3').fadeOut();
    	}
            function showWindow(name) {
    		$('#' + name).fadeIn();
    	}
    });
    </script>
    HTML:
    Code:
    ...
    ...
    <div class="pagecontainer">
            <!--JPlayer-->
            <div id="musicplayer">
                  <!--JPlayer code here-->
    
            <!--text area-->
    	<div id="legend">			
    		<div id="text1">text1</div>	
    		<div id="text2">text2</div>		
    		<div id="text10">text3</div>		
    	</div>
    
    </div>
    CSS:
    Code:
    .pagecontainer {
    	overflow-y:auto;
    	overflow-x:hidden;
    	margin-top:30px;
    	margin-bottom:300px;
    	width:800px;
    	height:400px;
    	margin: 0 auto;
    	display: block;
    	font-size:12px;
    }
    
    #text1,#text2,#text3 {
    	display:none;
    	position:relative;
    }
    
    /*SCROLLABLE*/
    #musicplayer {
    	margin-top:50px;
    	padding-left:50px;
    	width: 350px;
    	position:relative;
    }
    
    /*FIXED TO pagecontainer div*/
    #legend {
    	display:none;
    	position:absolute;
    	margin-top:100px;
    	padding-left:400px;
    	width: 400px;
    	height: 200px;
    	font-size:25px;
    	text-align:center;
    }
    Apparently the song names in a playlist in JPlayer are really special as they don't register as classes or identifiers, so I can't find a way to target them in a function. I've tried to register them as

    Code:
    title:"<span class='bold white m1' data-link='1'>Song 1</span>",

    like previous written. Strangely "bold" and "white" both works (bold just has css property of making font thicker, white is just a css property to change text color to white), but "m1" is not registered, as calling it in click functions does not work, ie:

    Code:
    $('.m1').on('click', function(e){    
              /*do some stuff*/
        }
    It can't find what ".m1" is and thus won't do anything. Basically css properties will register, but javascript won't. Very weird...

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    One of the problems is this (not the full solution!)
    Code:
    setTimeout(showWindow("text1"), 2000);
    This will not do what you expect. It will call showWindow() immediately because you append parentheses () to the function name. After 2 seconds it would run a callback if and only if you would return a function object from showWindow(), which you don't.

    Try this
    Code:
    setTimeout(function() {showWindow("text1")}, 2000);

    Thanks for your help, yes it seems there was a slight problem with the settimeout.
    I've updated my first post to make the problem clearer with updated code.
