I don't know why the embedded jQuery function below is not returning the value to my JS var? I do get the expected value in console.log(" >>>> FINAL RESULTS RETURNED : " + results);
function _dtmGetCurrResults(){
	    var results = [];
	    $(function() {
            $('[class*="solid-shape-large-rating-"]').each(function(i, e) {
                var result = this.className.match(/solid-shape-large-rating-(.*?)\s+/);
                results.push(result[1]); 
            });
        results = results.join("|");
        console.log(" >>>> FINAL RESULTS RETURNED : " + results);
		});
		return results;
	};
var myResults = _dtmGetCurrResults();

Thank you for your help. I'm obviously not a person that uses jQuery!  Much appreciated!
