    Exact Match help

    Everything works well except I can't make it tell the difference between "202" or "20"

    $("#recordInput").on("keypress", function (enter2) {
    if (enter2.keyCode == 13) {
    var record = $('input[name="record"]').val();
    var x = $("#drinks li:contains('" + record + "')");
    if (x.length){
    x.appendTo("#hugs");
    $('form').trigger("reset");
    }
    else{
    alert('Not Found');
    $('form').trigger("reset");
    }
    }
    });

    Then don't use :contains and just do an .each() loop through all the <li>'s in $("#drinks li') and compare manually.

    Btw, please enclose the code in [code] [/code] tags for readability.

    Or you can add a data-record attribute containing the record value and then use the attribute selector.

    Code:
    <li data-record="20">20</li>
    <li data-record="202">202</li>
    Code:
    var x = $('#drinks li[data-record="' + record + '"]');

    Or use id if the record numbers don't repeat.

    Code:
    <li id="record_20">20</li>
    <li id="record_202">202</li>
    Code:
    var x = $('#record_' + record);
    Use class instead if the record numbers repeat.

    Here is what I have now but something is off.

    Code:
    $('#recordInput').on('keypress', function(e) {
          if (e.keyCode === 13) { 
                var record = $('input[name="record"]').val(); 
                var x = $("#drinks li").each(function () {
        if ($(this).text() == record) {
            x.appendTo("#hugs");
            $('form').trigger("reset");
        } else {
          $('form').trigger("reset");
        }
    });
                if (x.length) {
                      x.appendTo('#hugs');
                           $('form').trigger("reset");
                }
                else {
                      
                      $('form').trigger("reset");
                }
          }
    });

    You can actually use .filter() instead of .each() but why don't you try my other solutions that don't require .filter() or .each()? Using record numbers in the id of li is the most efficient solution.
