  $('div[id*="landmark"]').each(function ()
            {
                $(this).text($(this).attr("id")).css("width", "100px").css("height", "100px").css("border", "1px solid red");
            });

Open in new window



Now, is there a way to cut out the "landmark" part and just display the characters after?

instead of:

landmarkA
landmarkZ
landmarkWhatever
landmarkFoo
landmarkBar

the inner text for the div would just be:

A
Z
Whatever
Foo
Bar

yes :$(this).text($(this).attr("id").split("landmark")[0]).css("width", "100px").css("height", "100px").css("border", "1px solid red");
or :$(this).text($(this).attr("id").replace("landmark","")).css("width", "100px").css("height", "100px").css("border", "1px solid red");
