    Inserting text into a textarea

    I currently have this HTMl code...

    HTML Code:
    <p><a class="insertCode" href="#">&lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</a> | <a class="insertCode" href="#">&lt;a target=&quot;&quot; href=&quot;&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;</a> | <a class="insertCode" href="#">&lt;h1&gt;&lt;/h1&gt;</a></p>
    and this javascript...

    HTML Code:
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    	$('a.insertCode').click(function()
    		{ 
       var htmltag = $(this).text();
       $('#codeArea').val($('#codeArea').val()+htmltag); 
       return false;
    		})
    </script>
    I am trying to make those links into "buttons" that will insert code into my textarea. So far I have nothing happeneing, even the links still work...

    I notice you don't have your script wrapped in the customary document ready function - in this case you need to make sure that your html is coded before your script...

    Code:
    <body> 
    <p><a class="insertCode" href="#">&lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</a> | <a class="insertCode" href="#">&lt;a target=&quot;&quot; href=&quot;&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;</a> | <a class="insertCode" href="#">&lt;h1&gt;&lt;/h1&gt;</a></p>
     <textarea id="codeArea"></textarea>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    	$('a.insertCode').click(function()
    		{ 
       var htmltag = $(this).text();
       $('#codeArea').val($('#codeArea').val()+htmltag); 
    		return false;   
    		})
    </script>
     </body>

    Yeah, this is the way I have it, but no dice.

    Even tried this...
    HTML Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    		$(function(){
    			$('a.insertCode').bind("click",function()
    			{ 
       			var htmltag = $(this).text();
       			$('#codeArea').val($('#codeArea').val()+htmltag);  
       			return false;
    			});
    		});
    		</script>

    Ok I got it to work, for some reason the textarea has to come after the "links", otherwise it won't work...

    That's ok, I can work with it, thanks

    this works for me in IE, FF and Chrome...

    Code:
    <body> 
    <textarea id="codeArea"></textarea>
    <p><a class="insertCode" href="#">&lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</a> | <a class="insertCode" href="#">&lt;a target=&quot;&quot; href=&quot;&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;</a> | <a class="insertCode" href="#">&lt;h1&gt;&lt;/h1&gt;</a></p>
     
    <script type="text/javascript">
    	$('a.insertCode').click(function()
    		{ 
       var htmltag = $(this).text();
       $('#codeArea').val($('#codeArea').val()+htmltag); 
    		return false;   
    		})
    </script>
     </body>
