jquery loop through ids in a div and show names in another div

Hi I have a div and want to loop through each inner ID and then append the Id to another div using jquery.

well actually its a svg image but if you know how to do it with div I know it would work on a svg.

how would I clear all the elements first, this is what I had

I use this to remove all elements in the id first
var svginsert = document.getElementById('svginsert');
                if ($('#svginsert').length > 0) {
                    svginsert.removeChild
                    while (svginsert.firstChild) {
                        svginsert.removeChild(print.firstChild);
                    }

Open in new window


then I was trying this to add them back in once changed
$('#svgwithIDs').each(function () {
                            svginsert.appendChild('<use xlink:href="#' + this.id + '"/>');
                      });

In my case, the element is moved so each one is removed from original...

i did this with a table as an example for someone else but I'm just trying to gauge what you're trying to do:

This can be done easily enough with <div> elements too
