I am trying to filter a DVWP based upon a span tag value. The value is set in a document.ready function. Please show me how to send it the output of a DVWP. I tried to insert it where the $Rows variable is set in the DVWP, but could not do it without errors. Thank you for your help!

You can't use something which is set in document.ready (jQuery) to filter a DVWP. The DVWP is evaluated and rendered server-side, and the document.ready runs client-side. Hoever, you can do the filtering client-side with script if you have the superset of items in the DOM.

Thank you Marc. – Anonymous Sep 24 '10 at 4:01
Hi Marc. I wrapped the entire DVWP inside a div tag. (<div id='filters'>) This hides the DVWP: var $fil = $('#filters'); $fil.hide(); Using a jquery filter function, I tried to effect certain items that meet the criteria. - $(fil).filter(function(index) { return $('@ID', this).val == 2; }).css('background-color', 'red');. Is there another element I can reference to see if the ID is equal to 2. Once I find a match, I'll want to hide that item. Thanks. – Richard70 0 secs ago – Anonymous Sep 24 '10 at 15:32
