the code below has 2 buttons 'CLICK-ME' and 'AGAIN-AGAIN'

on the click of first button all the empty td's get filled with text .

now what i'm trying to do is on click of second button just remove the text in
td's and add a new text . But the second functionality is not happening .

can anybody please help me out or just give a hint

I think you want to read what empty is: http://docs.jquery.com/Manipulation/empty

Does that sound like what you want?

Why are you using that filter?

i'm using filter to filter out those td's whose child node type is text ,
or else it will fill the new text in those td's which has child node input


and i added empty(), because first it will empty the text in between td's and than add new text.

This is what i was trieng to do

Huh? There's nothing there. This is completely unnecessary and pointless. And you don't need to empty the element first -- the existing content will be automatically replaced.

The best way to make sure that something doesn't work is to over-think it. Just keep it as simple as possible.
