How to apply CSS class to a split string

Tags: jquery,html,css,xslt

Problem :

I have some HTML content which are generated using XSL:

<span class="hrsDisp">Sunday: Closed</span>
<span class="hrsDisp">Monday &amp; Tuesday: 8 AM - 7 PM</span>
<span class="hrsDisp">Tuesday &amp; Wednesday: 7 AM - 7 PM</span>
<span class="hrsDisp">Mon, Wed, &amp; Fri: 7 AM - 5:30 PM</span>


<span class="hrsDisp">
    <xsl:value-of select="txtHours" />

I am trying to set the text before the : to bold using JQuery. I have the following which gets the string but the alert statement only displays one alert, even though there are multiple entries:

$(function () {
    var theTime = $(".hrsDisp").text().split(":")[0];

The above doesn't work as expected but doesn't throw any error either. I added the following line to add the class:


And I get an uncaught error exception in the console.

The final script which I thought would work is:

$(function () {
    var theTime = $(".hrsDisp").text().split(":")[0];

Instead my page is not displayed correctly and I get the error in the console.

Please help me resolve my issue.

Solution :

Try below XSL rule instead of javascript manipulation:

<span class="hrsDisp">
    <strong><xsl:value-of select="substring-before(txtHours, ':')" /></strong>:
    <xsl:value-of select="substring-after(txtHours, ':')" />

Alternatively you can use jQuery in this way:

$(function () {
    $(".hrsDisp").html(function(i, old) {
        return '<strong>' + old.split(":").join('</strong>:');
