A better solution to find ASP.NET ClientIDs with jQuery


A small routine that returns us a jQuery object based on only the id:

function $$(id, context) {
    var el = $("#" + id, context);
    if (el.length < 1)
        el = $("[id$=_" + id + "]", context);
    return el;

So in simple usage to select my ctl00_MainContent_txtSymbol value both of the following work:

alert( $$("txtSymbol").attr("id") );

Or if I want to be specific about the container:

alert( $$("txtSymbol",$("#wrapper")).attr("id") );
