Hello Experts,

I am trying to create an array : looping on all the rows in a table and garbing each first column text.
Basically this should give an array of numbers e.g. 01, 09, 30 and etc... The below code makes my browser freeze :-))

$('.table tr').each(function() {
  var idArray = [];
  var firstTd = $('td:first', $(this));
  var firstTdText = firstTd.text();
  idArray.push(firstTdText);
});

Open in new window

var idArray = [];
$('.table tr').each(function(idx, item) {
    var firstTd = $(item).find('td:first').text();
  var firstTdText = firstTd;
  idArray.push(firstTdText);
});

This works fine:

<script type='text/javascript'>
$(window).load(function(){
var idArray = [];
$('#myTable tr').each(function () {
    var firstTd = $('td:first', $(this));
    var firstTdText = firstTd.text();
    idArray.push(firstTdText);
});
alert(idArray);
});
</script>

  <table id=myTable>
    <TR>
        <TD>01</TD>
        <TD>Test 01</TD>
    </TR>
    <TR>
        <TD>14</TD>
        <TD>Test 02</TD>
    </TR>
    <TR>
        <TD>23</TD>
        <TD>Test 03</TD>
    </TR>
</table>

Actually there's an extra line in my code.
Here's the clean version:
var idArray = [];
$('.table tr').each(function(idx, item) {
    var text = $(item).find('td:first').text();
  idArray.push(text);
});

But the main problem you have is that you're declaring the array inside the loop.

more cleaner version :)

var idArray = [];
$('#myTable tr').each(function () {
    idArray.push($('td:first', $(this)).text());
});
alert(idArray );
