I am trying to find a jQuery command to retrieve an DIV whose Class ends in MyTarget.  So far I haven't found an example which works.

This seems to work:
$("div[class$='MyTarget']")

I tried the following on a SharePoint page:  $("div[class$='RootAspMenu']").length

The returned value was 0.  I use the length to check if the selector returned an object.

Also,  I searched the DOM view and found the div tag with a class = 'wxyZ_RootAspMenu'

If I look for that using $('#wxyZ_RootAspMenu').length I get back the value 1.

Please not that the prefix (wxyZ) changes which is why I need the kind of selecting.

IMPORTANT!!!
I realize that that value is the id value not the class and tried  $("div[id$='RootAspMenu']").length which also returned 0.

This works for me
<!doctype html>
<html>
<title>Selector Test</title>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<div class="'wxyZ_RootAspMenu"></div>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery.js"></script>
<script>
$(function() {
	var x = $('div[class$="RootAspMenu"]');
	console.log(x.length);
});
</script>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window

Are you sure there are no errors in the console that might be preventing the code from running?

What if that value is not a class value, but the DIVs id value?

$('id[class$="RootAspMenu"]') didn't return the object.  I did see that the above works with classes.
