    I am trying to access a table and find occurence number in  using jquery , but its not working...

    below is my code: any suggestions ???? :(


            $("#occ").click(function () {

                // here we will store counters for each ...

                var occurencies = {};

                // iterate each cell  (if1 is the name of the iframe.)

                $('#if1').contents().find('table tr td').each(function () {

                    // get number in cell

                    var number = $(this).html();


                    // if that number was counted already then exit

                    if (number in occurencies) { return; }

                    // get occurence count for that number

                    var count = $('table#tab td:contains(' + number + ')').length;

                    // and store it

                    occurencies[number] = count;


                // for each found number

                for (var number in occurencies) {

                    // get stored count

                    var count = occurencies[number];

                    // print into #results div

                    $('#results').append('Occurence of ' + number + ': ' + count + '<br>');

    If you trying to detect number of occurrances inside iframe you cannot just simply use:
    var count = $('table#tab td:contains(' + number + ')').length;

    First you have to go inside iframe ( $("#if1").contents()), the same as you doing at the beggining of code:
    $("#if1").contents().find('table#tab td:contains(' + number + ')').length;

    And it could be good approach to save iframe contents to local variable before if you gonna use it more than onece, like:
    var $iframeContents = $("#if1").contents();
    var count = $iframeContents.
    find('table#tab td:contains(' + number + ')').length;
