Hello Experts,

I am trying to:

1. Find the TD in a table that its text is equal to the "loftNo" variable.
2. Then go to the next TD and grab its text.

Help! Today my brain doesn't work!!!!


$('area').each(function() {
     var loftNo = $(this).attr("id");
    var LoftType = $("td:first:contains("+loftNo+")").next().text();

Open in new window

here is a working sample, giving "b"

<table>
    <tr><td>test</td><td>001</td><td>a</td></tr>
    <tr><td>test</td><td>002</td><td>b</td></tr>
    <tr><td>test</td><td>003</td><td>c</td></tr>
 <table>

...

var leftNo = "002";
alert($("table td").filter(function() { return $.text([this]) == leftNo; }).next().text());

just make sure you pass unique values... if you pass "002" and we have 2 td, texts are joined :)
if i change my 3rd row td value to "002" and try that code, I will get "bc"

Hi Huseyin KAHRAMAN :-) Thank you.

I think the problem was that i was searching on the first TD only. So I have changed it to "nth-child" and it looks that it is working fine. Yes filter would work better when dealing with duplicate values.
 $("td:nth-child(1):contains("+loftNo+")").next().text();
