If I have two controls on a page; Control1 and Control12, If I use $(‘div[id*=Control1′) to try to access Control1, it will find "Control12" if it is before "Control1" in the html.
What is the syntax to find just "Control1"? I tried getting rid of the *, but it then gives me an error.
I want to feed variables to find controls, and so I can’t use document.getElementByID so it isn’t an option.
The * denotes "contains" which is why it matches the other id.
I assume your control id’s are getting prefixed by asp.net which is why your doing a wildcard type search?
how about going an "ends with" search instead by replacing the * with a $ ?
