I'm trying to pull the data from a list, so I can rewrite it to something else.

So what I've done so far is get the text from the li, however I cant figure out how to get the href out, ideally I would like to pull the target out as well, however not sure if I can use target the way Im trying to.

So my html code is:-
  <ul id="newTabs" class="tabs">
    <li><a href="test2.php" target="test">Tab 1</a></li>
    <li><a href="test2.php" target="test">>Tab 1</a></li>
    <li><a href="test2.php" target="test">>Tab 1</a></li>
    <li><a href="test2.php" target="test">>Tab 1</a></li>
  </ul>

Open in new window


What Ive got soo far is:-
  <script>
    $(document).ready(function (){
        $('#newTabs li').each(function(){
            console.log("Text of link is - " + this.textContent);

            //Below this line doesnt work
            console.log("HREF is - " + this.parent.attr('href'));
            console.log("HREF is - " + this.parent.attr('target'));
        });
    });
  </script>

Open in new window


Anyone got any advise on how to pull the required data?

Hi,

this should work (I used a div for output):
$(document).ready(function (){
        $("#newTabs li").each(function(){
            $("#ResultDiv").append("<p>Text of link is - " + $(this).text() + "</p>");

            //Below this line doesnt work
            $("#ResultDiv").append("<p>HREF is - " + $("a",this).attr("href") + "</p>");
            $("#ResultDiv").append("<p>Target is - " + $("a",this).attr("target") + "</p>");
        });
    });
