jQuery Selector: Id Ends With?

Is there a selector that I can query for elements with an ID that ends with a given string?

Say I have a element with an id of "ctl00$ContentBody$txtTitle". How can I get this by passing just "txtTitle"?

Answer

If you know the element type then: (eg: replace 'element' with 'div')

$("element[id$='txtTitle']")

If you don't know the element type:

$("[id$='txtTitle']")

More information available


// the old way, needs exact ID: document.getElementById("hi").value = "kk";
$(function() {
  $("[id$='txtTitle']").val("zz");
});
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<input id="ctl_blabla_txtTitle" type="text" />
