Forms Jquery - Having trouble hiding the first delete row button

asked on July 21 Show version history

In a table, I put the totals at the top since they need to be able to add rows to the bottom

For this reason I want to hide the first delete button, and since this is the only table that you can add rows to, I would expect this to work. But it does nothing and does not throw any errors. The click function is running but the method to hide the first delete button found doesn't actually hide it.

I can hide all of them but I want to hide the first one, or any specific one for that matter using the get(n) method.

There's actually more elements that use the same class, so if you run $('.cf-table-delete').length in the console you'll find twice as many as the number of rows in your table.

To get around that, you could:

  • get the first row of tbody first, then target the delete elements
  • or just use CSS


.myTable tbody tr:first-of-type .cf-table-delete {
  display: none !important;

When working with collections we identified that it was prop value rather than a row or a ul, may be helpful looking for that and then explicitly naming this through JS and applying style in that way.

The CSS solution is the best! It just ensures it is hidden all the time. Thank you! I am surprised there is any other object with a class name like cf-table-delete. It seems very specific.

The class is very specific, but the items are almost certainly related since they appear in pairs on each row of the table. Probably there for some functional reason.
