convert html to plain text jquery .ajax

Please find the below jQuery code. Sending email perfectly, but I see a whole bunch of code (HTML) in the email. I want to convert the

html()
output of
#right
to
text()
. How can I do that?

$(document).ready(function () {
$('.confirm_button').click(function () {
var student_name = $.trim($('#student_name').val());
var student_contact = $.trim($('#student_contact').val());
var student_email = $.trim($('#student_email').val());
var right = $('#right').html();

if (student_name.length < 3 || student_contact.length < 8 || student_email.length < 4)
{
$('#sendfail').attr('title', 'Sending Failed!').text('Please Enter valid information. All fields are required').dialog({
buttons: {
'Ok': function () {
$(this).dialog('close');
$location.reload(true);
}
},
closeOnEscape: true,
draggable: false,
resizable: false,
modal: true
});
}
else
{
var objAjaxRequestData = {
'student_name': student_name,
'student_contact': student_contact,
'student_email': student_email,
'right': right
};
$.ajax({
type: 'POST',
url: 'send-select-university.php',
data: objAjaxRequestData,
success: function () {
$('#sendsuccess')
.attr('title', 'Message sent successfully')
.text('Your message has been sent. We will be in touch soon')
.dialog({
buttons: {
'Ok': function () {
$(this).dialog('close');
window.location = "http://www.ankooverseas.com";
}
},
closeOnEscape: true,
draggable: false,
resizable: false,
modal: true
});
},
error: function () {
alert('Oops request sending failed. Please check your internet connection and try again');
}
});
}

});
});

Answer

You need to replace

var right=$('#right').html();

to the

var right=$('#right').text();

According to your comments, I think you would be better to use the following code to have the selected items in a formatted view:

var right = "";
$("#shortlist_univs").children().each(function (i, univ) { // iterate over all universities and add them to the output variable in a list-like view.
  right += $(univ).text() + "\n"
});
