#2146 closed enhancement (duplicate)

:content() match substring - how if the need is to match the whole text?

:contains() is the very only selector that operates on text.

Here's the actual jQuery code:

// Text Check
contains: "(a.textContent||a.innerText||jQuery(a).text()||'').indexOf(m[3])>=0",

the method for matching text is .indexOf() , so it returns true if the text is contained, with no option for exact matching.

I think that another selector that operates on text is needed. I wrote a simple exact matching selector:

equals: "(a.textContent||a.innerText||jQuery(a).text()||'')==m[3]", 

it does make use of == operand instead of .indexOf() method
