How to pull a value from a table stored in an html table via Jquery searching through columns and rows
Goal: Take a var called
$item which is html containing a table with information about a specific item. Search down the first column of the table and find a substring that is provided in variable
$ModelName. Record the table row number in which it is found. Then search each table header (
th) to find one that matches the string "length". Record that column number. Now go to the table row number you previously recorded in that column and save that value in a variable called
I think this should find the
ModelName and provide me the tablerow, but it does not work.
var $item = $(stuff).closest("tr").find("td:contains(ModelName)").text();
Next I need to find the column with the word "length" in it and record the column number. I'm guessing the code could be similar to the above if actually worked like: var $item = $(stuff).find("th:contains("length")").text();
Then to retrieve the end product:
$endProduct = ???????????
Should I be using .filter() instead?
