How to get an element with its name attribute with jQuery?

Is there anything (like # for id and . for class) for name in jQuery?

Hello @kartik,

You can use:

jQuery('[name="' + nameAttributeValue + '"]');

this will be an inefficient way to select elements though, so it would be best to also use the tag name or restrict the search to a specific element:

jQuery('div[name="' + nameAttributeValue + '"]'); // with tag name
jQuery('div[name="' + nameAttributeValue + '"]',
     document.getElementById('searcharea'));    

Hope this is helpful!!

Thank You!!
