jQuery Remove object from array

Hello I have an array of objects where each object contains: name, url.

I need to remove an object from the array where the name and url match. How is that accomplished?

this should do the trick:
    var testArray = [{
        name: "Microsoft",
        url: "www.microsoft.com"
    }, {
        name: "AA",
        url: "AA"
    }, {
        name: "AAA",
        url: "ABA"
    }, {
        name: "Apple",
        url: "www.apple.com"
    var cleanedArray = $.grep(testArray, function (item, index) {
        return (item.name != item.url);

Open in new window

Just overwrite the Array variable (instead of generating a new one).

Thanks for helping!

I'm removing the item from the table selector with the code below which works fine, but I also need to remove the item from my collection, _LinkStorage which I persist to the database.

How can I use the code you provided to remove the item from my collection?

var cleanedArray = $.grep(testArray, function (item, index) {
        return (item.name != item.url);

$(document).on('click', '.deleteLink', function (e) {
                var tr = $(this).closest('tr');
                var name = tr.find('.link').text();
                var url = tr.find('.link').attr('href');

                var removeItem = $(this);

sorry but with your last post I got lost.

Your initial question was to remove an item from an array of objects where two named values are identical.

Now you ask something completely different, using jQuery objects.

If the above script does what it should, could you please close this question and open a new one with more details for your current issue?
Please provide also the HTML source or a link to your page (or try to repro on jsFiddle).
