Adding option to already initiated Bootstrap plugin

    var myLastMinuteChange = $('.multi-step-nav').data(['bootstrapWizard']);

  • Set options on the plugin object:

    myLastMinuteChange.options.onNext = function(){

Discover the plugin name with this:

Very clever, thanks! This has already helped with the carousel plugin. I was looking for a way to easily read and store the value of initiated options, and your solution was perfect:

var interval = $('.carousel').data('carousel').options.interval;

data() is also a great way to find out what convenience methods are available to a particular plugin. Thanks again!
