Hello Experts.

I am trying to extract "Save completed successfully" from the html below and place in a  variable using jquery or javascript. I don't know if it matters but notice that the span class id is the same for both spans.


Thanks
Bill

<div class="ui-widget advance-error">
<div class="ui-state-highlight ui-corner-all" style="padding: 0 .7em;">
<p><span class="ui-icon ui-icon-info" style="float: left; margin-right: .3em;"></span>
 MESSAGE ONE
</p>
</div>
</div>

Thanks leakim971,

But I can't guarantee that the " save completed" will be the last message.

Also, thanks for the link that is awesome!!

so the question is what can you guarantee? if you've no id, no unique class, no unique reference, you have no way to get your message
