I have some input fields that are pre-filled thru Jquery.
I'd like to grab the value of an input, check if it start with "x" and if it does, select that x. (So that the user can quickly change the x by just typing something else)
I know there is a question like this here:
Selecting Part of String inside an Input Box with jQuery
But it's an really old question and it doesn't really use Jquery!
So, how can i select the x in this input's value?
<input class="input" type="text" value="x*500*500" />
var input = $('.input');
input.setSelectionRange(0, 2); // Highlights "X"
Uncaught TypeError: input.setSelectionRange is not a function
You must dereference the jQuery object by adding
It's not behaving like MDN has described?
var input = $('.input'); input.setSelectionRange(0, 1); // Highlights "X" input.focus();
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script> <input class="input" type="text" value="x*500*500" />
