Home Forums JavaScript Jquery Selecting ID's Reply To: Jquery Selecting ID's


turned out my code would not select by ID if there was another in on the input.

ID=”total” worked
ID=”someotherid total” didn’t work

can anybody explain why?

Because “total” and “someotherid total” are not the same ID. If you need your code to select things with different IDs, use a .class or [data-attribute] selector instead.
