I have text boxes like this:

<input type="text" class="organization" size="32">

They are buried a few levels down beneath a DIV, such as:

<div id="abc">

</div>

In my script, I know the ID of the DIV. I need to get what is typed into the text box by class. There will be only one "organization" class within each DIV.

The text box is not a direct child of the DIV, which is where I'm getting a little confused.

Thank you!

Something like this:

var tb = $("#abc input[class='organization']");
alert(tb.val());

That worked, with the exception that I just needed to add val() to the end. Thanks!
