What exactly are you trying to do? Do you mean contents()?

If you have

<p>Some text</p>

$("p").contents() will give the text node as a jQuery object. So

$("p").contents().get(0).nodeValue == $("p").text()

So can you give an example of what it doesn't do you expect it to? There is no documented parameter for contents() so I'm not sure what the 'text' is for.

I'm sorry!

It's my false;

It's no bug.

I spelt the 'contains' to 'contants'

:contains(text) Returns: Array<Element>

<script src="jquery12.js"></script>



alert( $('p').contains('llo').html() );





It cannot work when the jQuery's Version is 1.2 up.

The firefox show the error:

$("p").contains is not a function.

(no name)()test.html (line 4)

to the wait list jQuery.readyList.push()jquery12.js (line 1911)

(no name)()jquery12.js (line 1935)

each([function()], function(), undefined)jquery12.js (line 562)

[Break on this error] alert( $('p').contains('llo').html() );

I think you are confused. There are two different "methods" available. One is contains which is a selector like:


Which will find all the <p> elements that have the text string 'llo' inside it. This sounds like the one you are looking for.

There is another called contents which is called like:


and this returns children of <p> including text nodes or if the target is an iframe then the nodes inside the iframe.

So again the problem is you are calling a function that doesn't exist. Hope that helps.
