Friday, January 6, 2012 Adding a row to a table containing form fields using jQuery
The following example shows how to add a new row to a table containing form fields using jQuery.
Firstly, create a table and a button that will add the new table row when clicked.
And that's it..! :)

I implemented something similar the other day, but I needed to add blank lines to a table, and used this:
$line = $('table tbody tr:first').html();
clone() takes values and even handlers which I didn't want, and I don't care about duplicate names as I will be reading and posting the table with jQuery, so I just copy the html and append it to the tbody. Sadly grabbing the html of a tr does not take the tr tags itself, which would have been nice.

Intersting that this works in IE but not in Firefox. Any fixes?

I've tested in IE9 and it works for me.

Thanks for this! I'll give it a try. One other thing I'll probably need to do is be able to delete a row. I'll do a google search to find out how however I wouldn't mind if you can suggest a good way :)

Awesome. Very useful cheers. I'm wondering how the var parts = this.id.match(/(\D+)(\d+)$/); bit works - is this regular expressions?

Hi Simon. Yes, that's correct.

// break the field name and it's number into two parts
var parts = this.id.match(/(\D+)(\d+)$/);
In code "this.id.match...." must be "this.name.match..."
Thank you, liked idea much.

Thanks. This a near perfect example of what I was looking for. A few minor modifications to the regex and I had exactly what I needed.

Thanks. Although I was looking to add a new row with input fields, your example code is a great start. Good call on the annotations...very useful
