In the code below, if the following tag is selected:

<div id="ctl09_ctl08_divPostponedTaskGrid">

How do I hide the sibling above it?   ( the <h6> tag )

		<td><span>Completed by: Jaren Morris</span></td><td rowspan="4">

 <h6>Postponed Task</h6>
<div id="ctl09_ctl08_divPostponedTaskGrid">


		<td><span>Completed Date: 2/25/2013 11:27:23 AM</span></td>

basically this:
$('#ctl09_ctl08_divPostponedTaskGrid').select(function() {

Open in new window

however by the id i can tell that this is asp control, so the way to do it in jquery is:
 $('#<%= PostponedTaskGrid.ClientID %>').select(function() {

Open in new window

i used PostponedTaskGrid as the asp ctrl name, u should replace it with the real asp control which is rendered there.

Thank you.  I am sure that works.

My interim solution:

  $(document).ready(function () {

        $('div[id*="_divPostponedTaskGrid"]').each(function () {

            var tablecount = $(this).children('div').children().size();

            if (tablecount == 0) {               
            else {
                $(this).closest('#frame').css('background-image', 'none');

Was prevAll(  )  an okay choice?

It works - but was it correct?

Also, I am not familiar with select(  )

I thought these were the same thing:

 $('#<%= PostponedTaskGrid.ClientID %>').each(function() {


 $('#<%= PostponedTaskGrid.ClientID %>').select(function() {
