I have a tr in a SharePoint dialog.  I can view it in firebug, but when I try to use the selector in the console window, it will not select the element.

How can I use jquery to select this tr in a SharePoint dialog.

<tr id="ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_ifsSendEmail">
                  <td valign="top" class="ms-descriptiontext">

This shows 0
alert($("ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_ifsSendEmail").length);

This does nothing:
$('.ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_ifsSendEmail').hide();

Notice the #
alert($("#ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_ifsSendEmail").length);

$('#ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_ifsSendEmail').hide();

Thanks, but the issue was that I was working in an iFrame.

This was the solution.

 $(".ms-dlgFrame").contents().find("#ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_ifsSendEmail").hide();
