jQuery textarea selector


The jQuery textarea selector is used to filter out all the textarea elements in a page, the syntax for this selector is.

$('textarea')

In this post we shall see on how to use the jQuery textarea selector to select all the textarea elements in a page without specifying the id or name of element explicitly.

The following script lists out all the
textarea elements in the page

$('textarea').each(function() {
   alert('TextArea: ' + $(this).attr('id'));
});

The following script lists out all the textarea elements in the page on click of the btnTypeSelector button.

$('#btnTypeSelector').click(function(event) {
    event.preventDefault();               
    //
    // TextArea - Type Selector
    $('textarea').each(function() {
      alert('TextArea: ' + $(this).attr('id'));
    });
});
