.html() is returning wrong content

In the fallowing code I am changing the value of input to 2 and then I want to get the html content of div#test. But I am receiving:

<input name="name" value="myipa" type="text"><br />

<input name="property" value="1" type="text"><br />

The problem is that I am receiving the property input with value of 1. The actual value is 2.

Am I doing something wrong or this is bug ?

Please tell me how can I get the content with the changes.

Thank you in advance.


<script type="text/javascript">


$('div#test input[name="property"]').attr('value','2');

var html = $('div#test').html();




<div id="test">

<input type="text" name="name" value="myipa" />

<input type="text" name="property" value="1" />

The problem is that (in IE at least) the value set is only reflected in the runtime property. If you use

to get the value it will be correct.

Is there a reason that you were using

to get the live value, or were you just using that as a debugging tool?

I was building tree view and wanted to move some of his "leaf", which content I change rapidly. So I try to use $(selector).html() to get the html of selector, but I found that I could use .prepend($(selector)) and the actual html was moved.

Thank you for your help.
