Description:

The text( val ) method sets the text contents of all matched elements. This method is similar to html( val ) but escapes all HTML entities.

Syntax:

Here is the simple syntax to use this method:

selector.text( val ) 

Parameters:

Here is the description of all the parameters used by this method:

  • val: Any string

Example:

Following example would set the HTML content of the first paragraph in the second paragram but it escapes all the HTML tag.

<html>
<head>
<title>The Selecter Example</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/jquery/jquery-1.3.2.min.js">
</script>
   
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">

   $(document).ready(function() {
      var content = $("p#pid1").html();
      $("p#pid2").text(content);
   });

</script>
<style>
  .red { color:red; }
  .green { color:green; }
</style>

</head>
<body>

<p class="green" id="pid1">This is <i>first paragraph</i>.</p>
<p class="red" id="pid2">This is second paragraph.</p>

</body>
</html>

This would generate following result.

<html>
<head>
<title>The Selecter Example</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/jquery/jquery-1.3.2.min.js">
</script>
   
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">

   $(document).ready(function() {
      var content = $("p#pid1").text();
      $("p#pid2").html(content);
   });

</script>
<style>
  .red { color:red; }
  .green { color:green; }
</style>

</head>
<body>

<p class="green" id="pid1">This is <i>first paragraph</i>.</p>
<p class="red" id="pid2">This is <I>first paragraph.</I></p>

</body>
</html>

To understand it in better way you can Try it yourself.
