Hi all,

I am trying to remove a dynamically created div with classes using jquery. If i add an id to the div the remove works (i.e. .remove('#<ID>'); but when its not removing based on a css class or classes.

Can anyone help please?

function highlightField(textfield, valid) {

            if (textfield.parent().is(".textbox-wrapper")) {
                textfield.parent().remove('.input-status.input-cross'); //not working
                textfield.parent().remove(".error-popup"); //not working either?
                textfield.parent().remove(".valid-popup");
                alert('removed any popups');
                textfield.unwrap();
            }

            textfield.wrap("<div class='textbox-wrapper'></div>");

            if (!valid) {
                textfield.removeClass("valid"); //just in case
                textfield.addClass("error");
                textfield.parent().append("<div class='input-status input-cross'></div>");
            }
            else {
                textfield.removeClass("error"); //just in case
                textfield.addClass("valid");
                textfield.parent().append("<div class='input-status input-tick'></div>");
            }
        }

    <input id="ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_FirstNameTextbox" class="half error" type="text" maxlength="30" name="ctl00$ContentPlaceHolder1$FirstNameTextbox" placeholder="First name"></input>
    <div class="input-status input-cross"></div>

Try this
	if (textfield.parent().is(".textbox-wrapper")) {
		textfield.parent().find('.input-status.input-cross').remove(); //not working
		textfield.parent().find(".error-popup").remove(); //not working either?
		textfield.parent().find(".valid-popup").remove();
		alert('removed any popups');
		textfield.unwrap();
	}
