Excuse me, why posting links on somewhat close, but essentially irrelevant topics, instead of answering to the point? If you understand the articles/answers you are referencing, probably you know how to solve this simple problem. There is nothing wrong if you try to save your time, but you still spend some, and the use of it does not pay off. This is just the idea for you. Please see my answer for an example...

PHP tag is missing ;)

This is JavaScript using jQuery. Please see my answer.

The idea of your implementation is completely unclear. First, let me illustrate the right idea on the sample finding the number of non-empty text boxes on the whole page.
First, find the set of jQuery wrappers represented text boxes:
var allTextBoxes = $("[type='text']");

In rare cases when you may have elements other then input also showing type="text", you can also add the element selector and combine it with the above, using multiple selector syntax:
var allTextBoxes = $("input, [type='text']");

Please see:[^],[^],[^].

When this is done, you can use the .each() loop and traverse the set. To tell the empty values from non-empty, first trim the value, then check up resulting length:
var totalCount = 0;
allTextBoxes.each(function() {
   var textBox = $(this); // I'll go slowly, step by step
   var value = textBox.val(); // it also removes carriage return characters
   if (value.trim().length > 0) // exclude the empty ones

Please see:[^],[^].

Note, this form of .each(),[^], should no be confused with jQuery.each(array, callback), which also can be used, but is much less useful in this case.

It is possible that you have some text boxed on the same page which are not in the table in question, so you need to exclude it. Then you need to modify the selector using the same principle I demonstrated in the very beginning. You may also want to eliminate the input attribute check-up, if you know that all the inputs in the table are of the same type. Here is one idea:[^].

And so on…

"Ко всему привыкает человек, и Герасим привык к городскому житью". :-)
("A man can get used to anything, so Gerasim get used to the life in city".
A quote from the story "Mumu" after Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev.)
Thank you, Maciej.

I'd translate it to Polish: "Do wszystkiego ludzie przywykają i Gierasim przywykł do miejskiego życia".
I found online version: and bookmarked it. I'll read it in (near?) future.

Not that I specifically recommended you to read it, it's just what was always learned by all school students, along with "Fathers and Children". Turgenev is a great writer, but not my very favorite.

Thank you very much.
Are you sure it's a "5"? I can see one vote of 1 and one of 5. Not a problem, but it could be a mistake of one of the two voters.
sudevsu 19-Mar-15 15:20pm
Yeah That's me SA. I wanted to click on 5th star but somehow got clicked at 1. That's the reason, I wrote a message again with 5. :)

Refresh the page and re-vote ;)
