jquery in custom field description not working.

Is it valid to use jquery script under custom field control descirption.

I've added text input custom field and updated it's descrition as below to fetch one of the text input value.

<script type="text/javascript">
alert(document.getElementById("customfield_10100:input1").value); //works fine
alert(AJS.$("input#customfield_10100:input1").val()); // not worked
alert(AJS.$("#customfield_10100:input1").val()); // tried this also, not worked
</script>

as above, if i use javacsript to fetch the value then i can get correct value in alert but its not giving me 'undefined' when i use jquery AJS.$(....).

any idea ?

found resolution, have to use as below ... additionl chars '\\' for colon.

AJS.$("#customfield_10100\\:input1").val());

Thanks

Hi,

You can try this alert(AJS.$("#customfield_10100").val());

there is a cascading custom field and in firebug , it shows id value as "customfield_10100:input1"

so, i can get alert for correct value while using javascript document object but not getting while using AJS.$.. not sure, what can be the cause.
