Hi -

I have a dynamically created table that loads more elements on button click. What I'm also trying to do is when any where in that table when a row is clicked no matter what row get the value in the first cell of that row clicked. I keep get the first value of the first row first cell with my code.

Here is the javascript:

C#
$(".browseTable").click(function () {
    var ptsID = $(this).find('td:first').text();

    //var ptsID = $('td:first').text();
    console.log(ptsID);

});


Here is the table
HTML
<table id="displayMe" class="browseTable">
    <tr>
        <th>
            ID
        </th>
        <th>
            Image
        </th>
        <th>
            Company
        </th>
    </tr>
    <tbody>
    </tbody>
</table>

The problem is, you're asking jQuery to find the first td in the table. You need to ask it for the first td in the row.

Something like this should work:
JavaScript
$(".browseTable").on("click", "td", function(){
    var ptsID = $(this).parent("tr").find("td:first").text();
    alert(ptsID);
});
