How to copy a table using Javascript

Hello,

I need your help.

I was curious to know, how I would go about copying only a specified table (all rows and all columns) using Javascript:

Below is an example of my table:

<html>

<head>

</head>

<body>

<table border="1" cellspacing="1" width="200">
	<tr>
		<td>Fruits</td>
		<td>Vegetables</td>
		<td>Colors</td>
		<td>Numbers</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td>Apple</td>
		<td>Carrot</td>
		<td>Red</td>
		<td>10</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td>Orange</td>
		<td>Broccoli</td>
		<td>Blue</td>
		<td>20</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td>Pear</td>
		<td>Onions</td>
		<td>Green</td>
		<td>30</td>
	</tr>
</table>

</body>

</html>

Open in new window


Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Cheers,

J

Give the table an id : <table id="mytable" border="1" cellspacing="1" width="200">

If you want to copy both data and code then you grab it with

somevar=document.GetElementById('mytable').innerHTML;

if you just want the data:
rows=document.getElementById('mytable').rows;
for (1=0;i<rows.length;i++)
{
   cells=rows[1].cells;
   for (j=0;j<cells.length;j++)
   {
      // do something with the data
   }
}
